RADIANT SKIN CARE Vocabulary Lesson 1

Ciao bella,

Are we all trying to look as young as we can? I hope so! There are product ingredients out there that we donít understand; products and ingredients to make your skin look the best that it can. Here are some explanations of these marv treasures!

RETINOL -- treats fine lines and wrinkles. A Vitamin A derivative, it stimulates collagen with its own exfoliating process softening wrinkles. Use sparingly and not with Alpha Hydroxy Acids or more Vitamin A. Ease into treatment with Retinol. Use only a pea size drop on clean, dry, skin.

NIACINAMIDE -- corrects sallow skin, large pores, dullness. Vitamin B3 helps cells energize and repair themselves. It promotes collagen, producing radiant skin. Also know to reduce pre-cancers. Does produce luminous skin. Do not use if you are already using a Retinol or Alpha Hydroxy Acid product.

CHARCOAL -- treats oily and acne prone skin. A face mask will act as a sponge sweeping away excess oils. Good on most skin types. Use once or twice a week. Immediate results!

BISABOLOL AND COLLOIDAL SULFUR -- treats sensitive skin. Calms redness and symptoms of rosacea. Contains anti-irritant, anti-infl ammatory and antimicrobial properties. High in panthenol promotes healing. If you have sensitive skin use as few products as possible.

These are very important words in our Glamazon vocabulary! Each and every one of these ingredients has been identified as miracle skin chargers!
