GSDC Our favourite glowing skin cream

Regular readers of this blog will know about our obsession with Atlantis Skincare’s Glowing Skin Cream. Homemade, vegan, cruelty-free, as organic as possible – and one of the best moisturisers you can put on your skin.

Packed with so many ingredients, it’s like food for the skin. Some of the ingredients include:

Red Raspberry seed oil – this oil is high in vitamin A and essential fatty acids, both key ingredients in skin care. Linoleic, alpha linolenic, and oleic acids all help protect, while replenishing moisture. The oil also contains vitamin E, which helps to condition and plump your look.

Lemon Balm leaf oil – Lemon balm is classified as being calming, soothing, healing and tightening on the skin, whilst also stimulating circulation. It is thought to be great for acne and sunburned skin.

Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) seed oil – Jojoba oil can seal in the moisture and create an effective barrier to external elements. It is so structurally close to the secretion of the sebaceous glands in the skin that it is readily accepted and tolerated.

Punica granatum (Pomegranate) fruit extract – Pomegranates protect and strengthen skin cells on the surface and regenerate cells in the deeper layers of skin. Pomegranates offer serious sun protection, thanks to the unique profile of antioxidants, including gallic and ellagic acid, which ward off sun damage.

Astrocaryum tucuma seed butter – delivers true healing, and restructuring benefits, to the skin as it improves the skin’s moisture barriers and offers true hydration for improved elasticity and suppleness. It is also known to improve scarring and stretch marks.

Salicylic Acid – The exfoliative properties of salicylic acid have been shown, over time, to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen growth. It can also be absorbed into sebum-filled pores. Once inside the pore, it has dual actions. It exfoliates and removes the skin cells quickly, and stops them causing a plug in the pore.”
