Woman and men around the world spend millions every year on trying to turn back the effects of ageing to the skin with salon treatments and procedures which are often painful and very costly, such as botox. If you are in search for visibly softer skin, especially where wrinkles and expression lines may be appearing without facing the needle, Barefoot SOS Repair & Renew Ultimate Youth Serum is natures answer. We find out from Barefoot SOSscientist, Julia Haywood, how this serum acts as 'nature's botox'... What makes this serum the ‘Natural Botox’? Fine lines and wrinkles especially around the eyes and mouth, tend to be expression related. These are caused by small muscle contraction involved in smiling, frowning, speaking & eating amongst other things. The natural active ingredient used in Ultimate Youth Serum is ‘Acmella Oleracea’, an extract from a tropical plant in the Daisy family. This extract has a similar action to Botox in relaxing the micro-contractions of the facial muscles, hence smoothing the skin but doesn’t need to be injected!! Tell me more about the powerful, natural ingredients that make this product work? As well as the Acmella extract, Ultimate Youth Serum has high levels of plant oils like Rosehip, Borage, Macadamia and Argan that moisturise and hydrate the skin as well as providing Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids to nourish the skin. In addition Calendula and Coltsfoot extracts soothe and condition the skin whilst Ladies Mantle helps protect against free radical damage. What other products work best to maximise the effect of this serum?portrait_080216_3 For optimum results you should always follow with a moisturiser. Depending on whether your skin is very dry/mature or normal then either Daily Replenishing Cream or our Light Moisturising Lotion are the perfect partners. At night for a richer treatment you can follow the serum with a few drops of Intensive Treatment Oil for an overnight skin boost.
