Allantoin: Derived from plants, is a gentle moisturizer (ideal for sensitive skin) that also helps improve skin’s smoothness, and promotes healing. Especially beneficial for facial and acne scarring. Promotes cell longevity, which helps combat visible signs of aging. Fun Fact: Allantoin is derived by calming chamomile, sugar beets and wheat sprouts!

1. Stay Hydrated
Hydration is crucial to general health and wellbeing. We tend to be more attentive to staying hydrated in the hot summer months, but in these winter months, we may be more prone to dehydration due to dry air and a lessened awareness of thirst.
You can apply all the lip balms and creams in the world, but if you are dehydrated, your skin will remain dry. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and eat water-rich foods to hydrate your body from the inside out. Using a humidifier is an often overlooked but incredibly helpful wayRead More

You will find Algallure® Age-Defying Serum has HA in it and should be directly applied on your skin after cleansing (Algallure®'s CreamyRead More
Back in my day, skincare routines were simple. Cleanser, toner, moisturizer. Done. Today, the requirements tend to get overshadowed by the fun stuff — essences, acids, ampoules, serums, oils, mists, masks, and more — meaning it’s probably time to revisit the basics.

I love green tea for its anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to its high content of polyphenols called catechins. The catechins in green tea reduce irritation, redness, and swelling.
