ReDermaVive Chinese Herbal Night Crème
ReDermaVive Chinese Herbal Night Crème is designed to be applied on the face and neck prior to bedtime, as it works best while you sleep.
Chinese medicine recognizes the importance of sleep as a time for deep repair, cleansing, and recharging of the body and mind...your skin included!
Additionally, one of the other lesser known theories of Chinese Medicine is that the defensive mechanisms found on the Wei Qi (our invisible energy electro magnetic field) is withdrawn deeper into the body while we sleep.
Our nightly sleeping provides two opportunities for skincare:
- By applying protective antioxidant rich emollients to the skin, they help to protect the body while it’s natural defensive shield is withdrawn while we sleep.
- With the Wei Qi naturally withdrawn, the beneficial ingredients in the medicinal cosmetics may have an easier time penetrating the skin and deeper tissues.
The Chinese herbs in this formula are some of the best blood quickening, qi-moving, fluid-engendering medicinals which have been used for more than 1,000 years for moisturizing and smoothing the skin of the face and body.
This structured blend of botanical oils and waxes has a coordinated effect of continuing the moisturizing and protection of the skin that the herbal formula establishes. Just to mention a few of the additional benefits of these oils is to help maintain elasticity and suppleness while eliminating toxins and smoothing the texture of the skin.
This combination of common and well-loved essential oil creates a nice floral scent. While that is enjoyable on its own, these essential oils have historically been used in cosmetics for their superior skin rejuvenating potential for hundreds of years. They are also known to have many multiple benefits to the skin, including their protective activity of fighting bacteria and of reducing inflammation.
All skin types. Non-toxic. The pure ingredients in this product give it a pleasant and natural aroma.
Using a pea-sized amount, smooth generously over the face before bed. Use nightly.
