Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil

Unless you’re using an “oil-free” moisturizer, you’re already using facial oil (it’s just been emulsified into a dreamy creamy consistency). Now, let’s get you using an even better oil. One with antioxidants to help protect your lovely face from premature wrinkles and aging. One that acts as a good base for natural make-up. One that’s made with loads of botanical goodness like hempseed extract and pomegranate oil. Pretty soon you’ll be giving mad love to Mad Hippie for leaving your skin moisturized and glowing, but not oily.

 

MyChelle Dermaceuticals Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum

Humectant may not be a household word, but it should be! A humectant, such as hyaluronic acid, helps to attract and preserve moisture in your face, which in turn may diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It’s activated by water, so apply after cleansing.
