1. Which serums are best for anti-aging, and how do they differ in addressing the look of fine lines, dark spots, and loss of elasticity?
The Anti-Aging Serum primarily focuses on hydrating the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines with hyaluronic acid and plant extracts. The Citrus Stem Cell Serum is excellent for fading away the look of dark spots and addressing loss of tightness or the look of elasticity. The Activated CBD Serum is highly hydrating and rich in antioxidants, beneficial for addressing the look of fine lines and overall skin health. The Wild Fruit Serum is a versatile option for addressing various signs of aging, including the appearance of dark spots, texture, and loss of elasticity.
2. Can the Activated CBD Serum be used to reduce the look of wrinkles, and what sets it apart from the other serums for anti-aging?
The Activated CBD Serum is hydrating and contains ingredients that combat environmental stressors, which contribute to the signs of aging. While it may not directly act as a filler for wrinkles, it helps soften the skin and promotes an even skin texture. It stands out for its inclusion of this unique full-spectrum CBD (which is both oil and water soluble making for optimal absorption) that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system in a beneficial way.
3. How can aging in the neck area be addressed?
Using Radiant Skin Silk and incorporating sunscreen into the routine can help address signs of aging in the neck area. You can also gua sha the neck.
4. Which exfoliants and masks are best for dryness and aging?
For addressing dryness and aging, we recommend the Kaolin Micro Exfoliant for a gentle scrub. The Illuminating Pearl Mask is wonderful for all skin types (a total staff favorite) and helps achieve a radiant glow. Another option is the Coconut Honey Mask, which is great for dryness as it is both deeply hydrating and moisturizing. (If you have combination skin or certain areas that are oily, this mask may be too rich.)
1. How are the Annmarie Skin Care facial oils formulated?
We begin by selecting a high-quality nutritive anchor oil, best suited for the skin type the product is formulated for, then gently steep a plethora of synergistic herbs into this base over low heat to retain nutritional composition. These infusions are surrounded by sacred geometry artwork and energized by crystals to ensure a high-vibrational, truly alive product. We then add antioxidant-rich botanicals, high-performance seed or nut oils and CO2 extracts for a complete activated formula.
2. How is the Rejuvenating Facial Oil formulated differently?
The Rejuvenating Facial Oil similarly starts with organic jojoba oil base, with seeds and herbal extracts steeped into it, and strained. However, we then add directly into the product the maximum amount of actives and high-performance oils (like black cumin seed oil, for example). We have it both steeped in the base oil, as well as added in directly for a potent anti-aging effect.
3. Can the Rejuvenating Facial Oil be used by sensitive skin?
The Rejuvenating Facial Oil can be a bit too activated for sensitive skin. It’s recommended to dilute or mix it with the Anti-Aging Facial Oil for milder use. Alternating usage or integrating it into the routine every third night can also help.
4. What is the most suitable facial oil for sensitive skin prone to dryness?
For sensitive, dry skin, the Herbal Facial Oil for Sensitive Skin is recommended as it excludes added essential oils, making it a reliably gentle option. Another choice is the Anti-Aging Facial Oil, which has a base of jojoba oil—an oil that is biocompatible with the skin’s natural oils—and is rich in fatty acids, providing a natural finish to the skin and plumping it up.
1. What are the key ingredients in the Botanical Hydration Mist With Immortelle, and what skin types is it suitable for?
The Botanical Hydration Mist With Immortelle contains an aloe vera juice base, neroli essential oil, and aspen bark. It is ideal for normal and sensitive skin, as well as for those experiencing early signs of aging. The mist provides a refreshing, citrusy scent, making it an excellent choice for a morning pick-me-up.
2. How does the Rosemary Toning Mist benefit oily or congested skin?
The Rosemary Toning Mist, suitable for oily skin, contains rosemary, neem, and white willow bark. These ingredients help control the skin’s natural oils and are recommended for mid-day use, acting as a natural way to reduce shine and maintain a natural glow without completely mattifying the skin.
General Product & Routine Education
1. How do the Concentrated Boosting Elixirs enhance the routine?
The Hydrate, Brighten, and Revitalize Concentrated Boosting Elixirs allow customization of skin care routines. They are concentrated, so only 1-3 drops is needed, and can be mixed with serums or oils—offering benefits like hydration, brightening, and a retinol-like effect (without the long-term negative impact on skin health).
2. Tell us about Sun Love, the sunscreen product!
Sun Love is Annmarie Skin Care’s mineral-based sunscreen with broad-spectrum SPF 20. It contains non-nano zinc oxide, is reef friendly, antioxidant-rich, and provides a moisturizing effect that works well under makeup. It also applies sheer, which customers rave about, since a lot of other natural sunscreens on the market apply very chalky or leave an unwanted white cast.
3. Could you tell me more about the Anti-Aging Eye Cream?
The Anti-Aging Eye Cream is recommended for its hydrating and firming properties around the eyes, containing plant stem cells and hyaluronic acid that nourish and create a more awakened look without the puffiness.
4. Are there other exfoliant options besides the Kaolin Micro Exfoliant?
Yes, the Resurfacing Facial Exfoliant is another option, which is an alpha hydroxy acid (also commonly known as a chemical exfoliant), featuring honey-derived lactic acid. The formula also incorporates soothing ingredients like cucumber extract and blue tansy. It is especially effective in addressing signs of aging.
5. How long are the products valid before expiring?
All Annmarie Skin Care products have expiration dates, usually two years from the production date. Storing products in the fridge or in a dark, cool area can extend their shelf life.
