1. Protecting Against Environmental Damage
You’re probably well-aware of the damage caused by the sun, which can result in wrinkles, fine lines and age spots, but apart from UV rays, elements like pollution, smoke, artificial heating and cooling, and the weather, such as wind, heat and cold, all play a part in environmental damage.
It’s been scientifically shown that being exposed to all of these irritants actually doubles the rate at which the skin ages. In fact, you probably didn’t realize that these factors are the No. 1 cause of skin aging, responsible for approximately 80 percent of it.
These environmental aggressors harm the skin as they produce free radicals, which causes chronic skin inflammation at a cellular level. That irritation can lead to collagen and elastin breaking down in the skin which increases the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines, as well as leaving your skin dehydrated, rough and dull.
And, Marula oil can be the ideal answer as it works day and night to protect your skin from the damaging effects of environmental elements, including the harsh rays of the sun, cold, wind, and pollution. It even works while you sleep through the natural renewal process of the skin in order to help reverse the damage while fortifying the skin from the inside with a blend of enriching, conditioning, and nourishing nutrients.
One of the best ways to use it for this purpose due to its lightweight nature is to apply it very lightly as a primer to the skin about 10 to 15 minutes before applying makeup. Thanks to its regenerative, cell renewal properties, it’s very good for the chest and decolletage area too.
