Can A Organic Skincare Line Really Fight the Affects of Aging? I Think So!

Are you sticking to those resolutions that you made a couple of months ago? Was taking better care of your skin using good for you, organic products on your list of things to do? You might be eating organically, recycling, and doing what you can for the environment, but how natural are your skincare products?

Read on to learn about a fabulous skin care line that I have discovered that’s getting rave reviews from med spas and esthiticains! And, as a To Be Simply Happy friend you can get a 10% discount when you order here:  Skin Drink Phytoceuticals ! Just link to them through this post and enter simplyhappy as the promo code at checkout!

So, raise your hand if you want to age gracefully, with beautiful skin, as few wrinkles as possible, and all without nasty chemicals and ingredients that sound like they should be in motor oil instead of on your face! My hand is raised, but it’s hard to type with one hand so I’ll put it back down now 🙂 I’ve even read that skin care products full of chemicals can actually age you in the long run. Gasp!! They are only a temporary fix at best. Not to mention how the chemical ingredients may be detrimental to our health!

Now, we can’t completely stop Father Time, our past sun exposure damage, and the affects of gravity completely, but we can use products that at least slow their progress, and to some extent reverse! Can I get an amen! Enter Skin Drink Phytoceuticals – an all natural, organic skin care line from right here in Texas!

I started using their body lotion about a year ago. I was looking for something chemical free with anti-aging components. After all, out skin is our largest organ and it soaks up everything we put on it! Good or bad! It’s full of great ingredients like Neroli oil, avocado oil, COQ10, DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and C Ester, along with botanical extracts, anti-oxidant vitamins, and more! This special blend of ingredients is aloe vera based (not water based like most other products), and soft and light in texture. AND, it smells amazing! I can’t count how many times someone has commented that I smell so good when I didn’t even have perfume on. Just the lotion! Maybe I’m just so sweet! Ha Ha!

After using the body lotion for a while now I have been happy with the results, so I thought it was time that I try the Skin Drink Phytoceuticals products for the face.

About 3 months ago I said goodbye to the products that I had been using and made a complete switch to Skin Drink. Now, I was using great, well-known products with a mix of good and not so good ingredients. They appeared to be doing a good enough job, but getting rid of the chemicals I was putting on my skin was a priority! I can honestly say that since I switched to the Skin Drink products my skin looks and feels even better than before! Even my husband has commented on the look of my skin! Smoother, brighter, smaller pores, and yes, I believe some diminishing of fine lines! Woo hoo!! I am 45 after all. There! I said it! I think I look 39-41! Is it just my rose-colored glasses?!? If you are my age, and from the south, you probably remember your parents listening to a song called “Rose Colored Glasses” by John Conlee in the late 70’s 😉 In the song he says “these rose-colored glasses show only the beauty, but they hide all the truth.” Lord, I hope that’s not me! But I digress! On to what I’m really here to talk about today…

Below I will share with you what I have been using the past few months along with the prices. Very reasonable, I might add!

Note that the Skin Drink products are Aloe Vera based! Most products on the market list water as the first ingredient. Check your labels and see! 

I know it looks like a lot in a day, but actually, some are daily and some are a few times a week. Hey! We’re trying to take care of our looks here! Don’t judge!

Anyway, they do offer more than what I have listed. You should definitley check out their website for other products. If you know someone with acne problems they have rave reviews on their website for the acne products!  There are actually a few more products that I want to try, including their nutritional supplements. I will be trying those soon and follow up with a post!

Oh, and if you are like me, changing your skin care line can be a little scary. Especially if the one you are using is doing a good job. But, I would urge you to consider making a switch to Skin Drink Phytoceuticals if you are ready to give up those chemical laden products. Plus, they are from right here in Texas, and I always think it’s a good idea to support locally owned businesses! Don’t you?
