Lion and Loki’s antioxidant potent formula, “Afterglow”, contains a low viscous texture that instantly penetrates deeply into the skin, creating a plumping effect. This non-comedogenic blend of oils provides many uses and functions. These functions include:
A common misconception of skin oils is that they make your skin oilier or greasy. And that is exactly what it is, a misconception. Many of the oils in our formula actually balance oil production to only what your skin needs.
Our oil also has anti-aging benefits because of the amount and potency of antioxidants in our formula. These antioxidants fight the free radicals on your skin that are known to damage our skin’s DNA and collagen production, and speeds along aging. We’re happy to have antioxidants on our team.
When combined with Vitamin E, Vitamin C stabilizes causing it to remain safe, potent, and effective. Vitamin E works directly on your skin cells, neutralizing free radicals in skin and preventing many signs of aging. Both work as antioxidants, which better compliments the many other antioxidants found in our formula.
Many all natural botanical skin oils on the market are only targeted for your face. Our skin oil comes in a lovely 50ml bottle that you can use on any part of your body, and reap the benefits. Many other companies only offer 20-30ml bottles.
Because our skin oil is full of all natural goodness, chances of allergic reactions are unlikely, however; whenever starting a new skin product, you should test a small area of the body for a few days to put yourself at ease. Your skin may begin purging, when it is adjusting to a new product, and persevering with the product will eventually make your skin better – in fact, the sudden flare up means that it’s working as intended. Allow at least 1-2 weeks when changing to a new skin product for your skin to adjust. Then all you have left to do is indulge in that heathy, all natural glow!
This one is self-explanatory! Because of the diversity of oils in our formula, each one compliments another, proving to work together to target many skin ailments at once. No one skin type is left out, and many if not all will benefit from our formula.
Your skin can breath! Our oils have an absence of these yucky ingredients. Instead, we have oils like Organic Jojoba Seed, or Evening Primrose -to name a few- that contain (without getting all scientific) gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)—an omega-6 essential fatty acid that helps strengthen the skin barrier, reduces moisture loss, and provides the anti-inflammatory effects that calms some of the skin ailments many of us suffer from.
Many of the oils in our formula work hand in hand to treat sunburned skin, protect skin from UV damage, reduces the effects of sunburn, and most importantly soothes sunburned skin. With this being said, we do not recommend going without sunscreen.
The extended exposure to water can actually dry and crack your skin. A few drops of our oil can provide increased circulation, reduced stress, and overall hydration. Bring on the bath!
In order to have healthy nails, they must be in good balance. Afterglow is equipped with oils that are known to treat dry cuticles, which is the foundation to healthy nail beds. We’re glad we can lay that one to rest!
Here we have the main reason why Afterglow was born (no pun intended). The safe prevention and reduction of stretch marks has been our #1 goal. Our Founder used it throughout her pregnancy to avoid getting stretch marks, and also during postpartum so to help her skin balance and sober after the hormone cocktail that pregnancy serves. Consult with your health care practitioner for use during your pregnancy.
Whether liquid bb cream or dry powdered foundation, Afterglow makes for an ultra nourishing and hydrating primer. Apply some only after cleansed and toned skin. There’s nothing like a natural glow to enhance your glam!
