I am a Holistic Nutritionist, which means I consider a range of factors when helping clients determine how they can lead a healthier lifestyle. Sure, the food we eat is part of that – but only one part. I also believe in analyzing all of the products that we use, especially those we put on our skin. The skin is our largest organ and it absorbs much of what we put on it. A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that the skin absorbs over 60% of contaminants. Other research indicates that the skin on our face absorbs even more toxins than that.
Because so much of what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bloodstream, I am a firm believer that the skin products we use can have a major impact on our overall health. Therefore, I only put the highest quality products on my face and body, and I recommend that my clients do the same. Enter Prima skincare. I have posted about this brand before because it is one of the few that I trust wholeheartedly in terms of both CBD and high-quality skincare. Two of my current favorite Prima skincare products are The Afterglow cream and Night Magic oil. This powerful duo is all you need after cleansing and it works while you sleep!
The Afterglow Cream
This deeply restorative cream emanates youthful radiance. In my opinion, the Afterglow is the better “La Mer,” made with 500 mg of broad-spectrum hemp CBD. It contains FOUR types of hyaluronic acid and Prima’s Ayurvedic Adaptogen Complex (think: turmeric, ashwagandha, butterfly ginger, and gooseberry extracts). The Afterglow also includes ingredients like vegan collagen, squalene, and a blend of exotic butters. I cannot stand unnatural perfumes, and this cream is made without any fragrance, which is rare for skin products and another major plus in my book.
A few more reasons why I recommend this cream include:
- Reduces the appearance of discoloration.
- Combats stressors like blue light and air pollution.
- Provides intense hydration for plump, luminous skin.
- Proven effective to improve skin hydration by 35% and visibly enhance skin firmness by 13%*
I promise you will want to add The Afterglow into your skincare routine! Add it as the final step of your regimen unless you want to take it even further…
Night Magic Facial Oil
If you want to take your skincare routine to the next level, I recommend completing it with this intensive hydration facial oil after you have applied The Afterglow cream. The Night Magic was the winner of the Elle Future of Beauty Award and is designed with a targeted combination of potent botanical oils such as age-defying prickly pear, moringa, avocado, and kukui oils. It also contains vitamins E & K, phytosterols, natural fatty acids, polysterols, and cannabinoids to help improve skin integrity. Unlike many facial oils with “filler oils”, Night Magic combines the most active antioxidant-rich oils for maximum skin benefits. It is also vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and comes in recyclable packaging.
In clinical trials*, the vast majority of subjects who used the Night Magic oil reported:
- Improvement in skin appearance
- Improvement in skin texture/ smoother skin
- Healthier looking skin
- More supple skin
- Improvement to fine lines and wrinkles around eyes
- & more
*Based on an independent clinical study of 30 women after 8 weeks of use
I have been using both The Afterglow and Night Magic products for several weeks and I seriously cannot imagine going back to a skincare regimen that does not include them. Simply apply both the cream and the oil after cleansing and allow them to work their magic throughout the night while you sleep.
All of Prima’s skincare products are consciously formulated without concerning chemicals. In fact, the brand’s Restricted List identifies and avoids 2800+ questionable chemicals, ingredients, and materials in order to keep its products as clean as possible. Specifically, Prima’s products contain NO ingredients known to be carcinogens, reproductive toxins, neurotoxins, developmental toxins, endocrine disruptors, or that cause organ toxicity, DNA or cell damage, or environmental harm. Now that is what I am talking about when I saw high-quality skincare products!
