Did you know…some large corporations make multiple lines with multiple price points ?

.(They call them “low end” & “high end” products)

.

There are lots of  inexpensive  ingredients that are proven to be safe & effective.

Autumn is the perfect season to eat your face beautiful !

Your body is amazing – it converts beta-carotene into Vitamin A, which is an essential nutrient for healing wounds, protecting against sun damage, & stimulating cell turnover.

4. Soy

Look for soy if you’d like your skin to look brighter and more even-toned.

.

Topical soy has been shown to lighten discolouration due to hyper-pigmentation (dark sots) and sun damage by inhibiting the skin’s over-production of melanin.

 .

Soy-based products are a particularly good option if you’re looking for an alternative to prescription-strength ingredients like retinoids and hydroquinone.

6. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is essential for defence against the common cold, but it also battles some common signs of aging like sagginess and dullness.  It also helps with collagen synthesis, which is essential for firm and smooth skin.  It also has antioxidant benefits to help fight free-radical damage and help lighten dark spots.

 .

And if this little vitamin didn’t already work hard enough it can also regulate sebum production to prevent acne & decrease inflammation.

 .

Not only should you eat plenty of citrus fruits to ensure your skin benefits from VitaminC … look for it in serums to maximize the antioxidant powers on the surface of your sweet face!
