Spritz Up With Thermal Water

Published on by

Whether you need a quick pick me up for you skin or a product to soothe irritation, thermal waters are formulated for all skin types and have many benefits. These unique toners not only help even out the pH level of the skin, but are anti-inflammatory, have antioxidant properties, provide hydration, help reinforce the skin’s natural barrier function, and not to mention they are excellent for sensitive or post procedure skin. You can very easily incorporate one into your skincare regimen after cleansing morning and night, or they can be used when needed throughout the day. I can honestly say this has become a MUST HAVE item for me and I always have one sitting on my desk. I’d like to highlight a few or my favorites:

Purlisse: Pure & Smooth

Published on by

Purlisse has recently been repackaged and reformulated, we didn’t think they could get any better but we were wrong! Purlisse (which means pure and smooth in French) is not your ordinary brand. Purlisse combines Chinese plant extracts and ancient beauty rituals with French marine plants, minerals, vitamins, and peptides to improve the condition of the skin and provide a beautiful radiance to reveal the skin’s natural beauty.

Purlisse uses 5 key ingredients known as the lotus lupine peptide complex. This amazing complex contains the following ingredients:

Lupine Peptides: boosts vascular growth, as well as protein and lipid production. These peptides also add a healthy appearance and smooth texture to the skin.

Blue Lotus Flower: is a powerful antioxidant that has been used for thousands of years, which protects and detoxifies the skin.

White Tea: is rich in antioxidants and helps to protect the skin from stress and cellular damage.

Soy Proteins: help to soothe the skin, moisturize and help produce collagen and elastin.

Sea Silk: is derived from French marine plants and helps to protect the skin while firming and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Purlisse products do not contain parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic color, fragrance, or any animal byproducts.

My personal favorite is the Pur Youth Preserve Age Delay Skin Serum, this makes an excellent makeup base, and it will also calm and soothe the skin while providing a healthy glow. It contains Vitamin E, Rice Bran Oil, Peony, Wheat Proteins and of course the Lotus Lupine 5 complex.

We encourage you to see for yourself the excellent skin care products that Purlisse has to offer! If you have tried Purlisse tell us what your favorite product is and why you love it, we’d love to know!
