Oils have become a staple of many regimens, and for all your Fleuressence Oil fans, it can still be used. The recommended way to use both Fleuressence and Supreme Serum, is to use them separately.

Neck Cream vs. Night Cream
The facial skin and the neck /chest area are very different in their makeup and texture and therefore need entirely different targeted list of ingredients. The neck does not have the same amount of pores as the face and therefore tends to be drier and sooner to show sun damage and signs of aging. The Plant Profusion Lifting Neck Cream utilizes the PURFLORA complex to encourage collagen production, which helps to thicken the skin, lighten hyper-pigmentation, and target DNA repair. Specific to the Neck Cream, the auditor of powerful Pink Grapefruit Oil binds moisture onto the neck creating hydration, while Hexapeptide-10 lifts and fills the bands and wrinkles. The tricky thing about neck versus night creams, are that the two different types of skin need different attention. The neck needs a hydration delivery system different from the facial skin due to the difference in pores, hair follicles, oil glands etc . The neck does very well with peptides and collagen to thicken and tighten the sagging then skin. While these ingredients are in night creams also, the neck still needs its own specific formulation of ingredients. Always remember when applying neck cream to not tug at the skin. Rub in an upwards motion and don’t neglect the back of the neck-as it gets sun damage too! Our Regenerative Night Cream delivers supreme anti-oxidants and plant stem cells to encourage collagen production and DNA repair. The best time to use a night cream is at night due to the lack of sunlight the and higher levels of melatonin in the body. However, Plant Profusion Night Cream is safe for daytime use.

Remember it is never too young to start on the road of anti-aging.
