4 Ways This Slows Aging

Why do some age so slowly?

Every one of us knows one of those people who’s genetically lucky and just never really looks their age!
Turns out the science behind that is based on a collection of genes that help restore skin and repair blemishes. 
These particular genetics are all involved in anti-oxidant production, skin repair and moisture production.
Funny thing is, we all have these same genes…

This particular oil can actually help support them for better skin.
When you apply this oil to your skin, it even protects you from the harmful UV radiation that comes from certain wavelengths of light (not just the sun).

Here’s the four ways this oil helps:

#1 - It’s an effective antioxidant

Antioxidants are substances that help protect the skin's surface from oxidative damage caused by free radicals and environmental aggressors.

#2 - Blocks certain UVA and UVB light damage

Light damage causes skin to burn, darken or wrinkle and all impact your visible age. It’s like a natural sunscreen, but rich in skin repairing Vitamin E.

#3 - It helps reduce inflammation

The anti-inflammatory effects are likely why it helps with conditions like acne, rosacea, eczema and other skin conditions.

#4 - Helps retain moisture

Sunflower oil also contains linoleic acid, which helps your skin retain moisture so it becomes less dry. Reinforcing this natural moisture barrier is especially helpful for those with eczema or otherwise dry skin.

Sunflower’s naturally occurring linoleic acid even helps protect the face from unwanted bacteria and germs. 
There’s definitely people out there who have great genetics that seem to do a lot of this work for them… 
…but even those people see the years catch up to them eventually.
For the rest of us, there’s rich hydrating oils like this one.
It can help make a noticeable difference in your skin and help reduce some of the effects of the sugars we consume.

Thank you for being part of our mission for natural, healthy skincare.

And as always, be well!
