Kosmea-to end those dry skin summer blues!

Ciao bella,

The end of summer can really reek havoc on your psyche and your skin! I acquired a really nice tan this past glorious summer season. I just crave the Vitamin D from the sun and love the healthy glow.

However I woke this morning feeling itchy and obviously faded. Tsk...tsk!

I run to my supply closet and lo and behold I am fully stocked of my wonderful Kosmea to help these dry skin summer blues!

First off I use my SKIN CLINIC RESCUE BODY CREAM, a nourishing all-over body cream rich with certified organic rose hip butter soothes the itch and dryness.

I also come across my SKIN CLINIC RESCUE BALM, a multi-purpose rich balm loaded with certified organic rose hip butter. I use this "I call it magic" for my really dry heels, elbows and spots targeting those tough, dry areas.

Now my face is cleansed with Kosmea's CLARIFYING FACE WASH, gentle and free from sodium lauryl sulphate removing make-up, dirt and skin impurities with never a dry feeling. In between I also use The DAILY FACIAL EXFOLIANT. It is non abrasive, gently refining and cleansing with effects of a treatment mask. Then a spritz of HYDRATING ROSEWATER MIST to gently sooth and cool and hydrate tried weary skin. Best when applied just before rose hip oil. Used it all summer for a cool zap of hydration. Perfect for air travel!

To moisturize and renew my face I alternate between my fav SKIN CLINIC CERTIFIED ORGANIC ROSE HIP OIL, rich in vitamin A, essential fatty acids and antioxidants smoothing wrinkles, achieving even skin tone for an instant healthy glow. And the New RADIANCE 24/7 YOUTH BOOST -preserving elasticity and moisture, protecting visible signs of skin aging. Revitalizing the appearance of skin while it smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Also and importantly is KOSMEA'S EIGHTH NATURAL WONDER, a revitalizing, anti-aging facial serum that instantly "lifts" dull and tired skin. Contains unique hibiscus extract to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

Last however not least is the latest Kosmea product, APPLE OF MY EYE CREAM. It contains PhytoCellTech, apple stem cells, white tea and carrot extracts, rose hip oil and Shea butter to reduce visible signs of aging. You know what they say "An apple a day......"

Now I feel like I can conquer the world! It's empowering to look and feel good!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
