Four Precious Skin Care Ingredients You Must Know
Today, we’re excited to introduce you to seven new products from Lady & Skin—a brand packed with glitz and glam both inside its containers and out. The opulent packaging, in this brand’s case, reflects truly high-end formulations, containing some of the most fab ingredients we’ve ever heard of. Let’s take a closer look at four of our favorites.
While the concept of slathering our faces in 24K gold isn’t exactly a hard one to sell to anyone who likes a bit of luxury in their lives, the precious metal is thought to have a bevy of benefits to our skin too. In fact, colloidal gold (particles suspended in liquid) has been injected in patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. The same thinking has been applied to skincare, that is to say, gold has been used as an anti-inflammatory, anti-aging ingredient to prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin (the proteins that keep our skin plump and firm!)

Propolis is part of the holy trinity of “things bees make”—the other two being royal jelly, and honey. All three are skincare faves. Basically, if you’re into skincare, don’t fret the bees, because they’re out there creating precious natural ingredients that even Cleopatra loved. Propolis is essentially "bee glue." Bees create the resin-like substance from plants and trees and secrete it to fill crevices, seal honeycombs, and protect the hive. Basically, propolis is the hive's immune system, which has earned it a reputation as a nature's antibiotic. It's also beneficial for acneic skin, given the fact that it's non-comedogenic (fancy and clinical for: won't clog your pores!), anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic!

While fish eggs may not sound as glam as say, gold, there are reasons this fancy, coveted delicacy is well, fancy and coveted in skin care. Rich in nutrients (Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids), caviar can help prevent cellular inflammation and trigger hormones that produce collagen (those are good hormones, thank you very much). Potassium and Selenium, which caviar also contains, are said to have similar elasticity-boosting effects. Additionally, they've got some of our very favorite/most quintessential skin goodies—antioxidants, in the form of Vitamins A and E. These help protect from and improve environmental damage (free radicals) that cause aging and disease. Try Lady & Skin's Youth Reviving Caviar Essence
Wild ginseng has long been prized in Asian cultures. In Chinese medicine, the gnarled root is believed to promote a long life, strength, and even wisdom. Used for internal and external nutrition, the plant is healing and soothing (and can be effectively applied to sunburns, razor burns, what have you). It's also known to boost collagen, and firm the skin—we'll take all that + the wisdom! Try Lady & Skin's Yesulham Signature Cream
