Do you want glowing, hydrated and bright skin all the time ? Our  star cult favorite, Fleuressence Native Botanical Oil, is more than ‘just’ an oil. Multifaceted is an understatement when it comes to this oil. While  there is still a lot of confusion about how to incorporate oils into a daily regimen, you don’t have to give it another thought because we made it easy to utilize this golden elixir in oh so many ways !

Application tips:

  • Can be used as a serum. Apply suggested dropper amount on washed, cleaned skin for brightness, hydration and anti-aging benefits.
  • Can be used as a moisturizer. Apply suggested dropper amount over your serum of choice for maximum hydration.
  • Can be mixed with moisturizer. Add a small drop (approximately half of the dosage = to one pump) to any of the Goldfaden MD moisturizers to boost radiance and hydration.
  • Mix a few drops into foundation before makeup application. This will create a smooth, hydrated and luminescent appearance.**We suggest applying with a kabuki brush
  • Can be applied over makeup as a last step to create a protective barrier and sealant. Take a few drops and rub into hands and then dab on to a finished face of makeup for a radiant and hydrated glow.
  • Can also be used as a hydration mask. Apply a full dropper amount to clean dry skin and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse with cool water and apply regular regimen products after.

Dr. G tips:

  • Oily skin types can use Fleuressence Oil
  • Contains over 23 active ingredients
  • Took over two years to perfect this oil

At the end of a long day sometimes we just want to get back to basics and feel good. DIY at home masks and body treatments are a great way to unwind and feel pampered without breaking the bank at a luxury spa.

 

Below are a few of our favorite at home rituals:

The Sweet Body

Sugar body scrubs are a cinch to make at home. Make sure you always use fine sugar, as you don’t want it to scratch the skin. Mix in ¼ cup of coconut oil for hydration and anti-bacterial benefits and a tablespoon of lemon for brightness and further exfoliation. If you want to add a cellulite and anti-inflammation treatment, add the mornings old coffee grinds. Caffeine is a cellulite buster! Mix together in a bowl and apply and gently scrub in the shower.

The result: Smooth, hydrated and retextured skin.

Lip Love

Peeling lips are a real thing and with lower temperatures around the corner, its time to protect your lips. Exfoliating your lips will help them stay soft and kissable. When making a scrub at home look to use ingredients to gently slough off dead skin cells, dried lipsticks and dry skin, but still adding hydration. I like to mix either almond oil or Vitamin E with finely granulated sugar. Coconut oil may feel soothing too as it is antibacterial, anti fungal and anti microbial. If you’re looking to make a lip plumper, you can sue the same ingredients, but add some cinnamon!

**If lips are already peeling or have open cuts or sores, exfoliation and plumping is not recommended.

The result: Soft, plump and hydrated.

Heel heal

Mix half a cup of lemon juice for exfoliation and breaking down the thick dried skin, ¼ of coconut oil and a lot of salt. Start by scrubbing the bottoms of the feet, paying particular attention to the heels. Rinse very well and apply coconut oil and then a pair of socks before bed.

The result: In the morning your feet will thank you and feel super smooth to the touch!

The Superfood Mask

Mix ½ cup of nonfat plain yogurt with ½ of an avocado and a tablespoon of honey. Yogurt has exfoliation and brightening benefits due to the high levels of lactic acid. Yogurt may also help soothing and cool down red inflamed skin. Honey is a natural antibiotic and antiseptic and can also help remove dirt and bacteria due to it’s sticky consistency. Leave on for 10-15 minutes before washing off.

The result: Brighter, Radiant and smoother complexion.

 

 

 

Vitamin C is not only important externally for bright and fresh looking skin but also internally for optimum health. Grapefruit/Lemon/Orange are rich in detoxifying enzymes and high in Vitamin C, which aids in skin Brightening and helps cleanse, purify and detoxify the skin (aka, ultimate radiance booster). Dr. G’s fresh citrus salad can be eaten any time of the day and is a perfect healthy dessert. This salad is said to have inspired our multi-fruit enzymatic peel, Fresh A Peel.

What you need:

In a small bowl mix  lemon, pine nuts, honey and chopped mint leaves. Sliced kiwis in thin discs and section grapefruit and oranges. Pour mixture over the fruit, mix and serve at room temperature.

2 oranges(high in Vitamin C)

1 grapefruit (highest anti-oxidant juice + High in Vitamin C)
