Alana’s “5 To Survive” travel summer picks for 2012
1. Dermaquest C-lipoic Cleanser 2oz $11
"An antioxidant-rich foaming cleanser which removes dirt and debris from the skin's surface while preventing free radical damage and collagen deterioration. It is a great day and/or night cleanser.
Remember, Alana says to wash your face twice at night for truly clean skin!"
- Removes dirt, oils, and impurities from the skin
- Vitamin C and Alpha Lipoic Acid scavenges free radicals to prevent cellular damage
- Firms and strengthens the skin
- Stimulates collagen synthesis
- Leaves the skin feeling refreshed and clean
- Perfect lather for shaving
2. Epicuren Acidophilus Pro-Biotic 2oz. $22
(Epicuren products are Paraben free and use natural preservatives like vitamin C, not chemicals in their products)
"My Favorite moisturizer, its light weight, perfect for humid or warm climates and contains Acidophilus Probiotic, beneficial to maintaining healthy skin, a "friendly bacteria."
3. Epicuren Brazilian Propolis Mist 4 oz. $24
"Propolis extract is a natural property from bees! It is produced on their back and it coats the entrance to their hive every time the bee enters or exits. Propolis is anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial. If you have never used Proplis you are in for a treat. It will decrease breakouts and problematic skin. Your skin will be hydrated, not sticky and ideal for healing and soothing your skin in these summer months."
4. Epicuren x-treme SPF 45 2.5 oz. $34
"Has Proplis in it just like the mist. It’s great for daytime use as sunscreen and moisturizer and ideal for face and body.
People who do not typically like sunscreens because of their white and greasiness properties love this for being more of serum type.
The x-treme gives you a slight glow when you initially apply it and absorbs nicely into the skin."
5. La Bella Donna co-exist gel .15 $6
"Use as an eye cream before or after makeup or use as a moisturizer. Also ideal for humid and hot climates, my Southern Bells to my Floridians love it. I keep this size in my purse and apply it through out the day for hydration and firmness to my eyes. The co-exist gel contains a dense amount of Hylaronic acid, a hydrating and plumping property your skin cells naturally have, help to bind water to the skin. The green tea extract in the co-exist is great for strengthening skin cells, it is anti-irritant, anti-oxidant, anti-pollution agent and free radical trapping agent."
