This complex combines potent antioxidants like Vitamin C, E, biotin, and is boosted with peptides to help stimulate collagen production. Micronutrients help enhance skin tone and neutralize impurities while humectants provide hydration.

    Magari’s Liquid Youth is a spray-on elixir with many benefits:

    -Evens out your complexion

    -Increases collagen/elastin synthesis

    -Inhibits the formation of wrinkles and lessen the appearance of deep expression lines

    Give your skin some love this season!  I hope you consider featuring a vegan, cruelty free body care line called Ida Body Care. It’s clean, essential-oil based care. An all-female company, 3 generations in the making, it was created and founded by Vicki Weaver Payne. Vicki started this body line in honor of her mother, Ida.

    Vicki took her mother’s formula and created an even more natural pure/clean product for the body. “I work with 18 natural ingredients and essential oils in designing my products. 95 percent of all my ingredients are of natural origin,” she adds.

    Ida Body Carefeatures four products: Dry Brush, Body Wash, Body Scrub and Body Lotion.  Each product performs equally well on the body, but for best results, she recommends using the four-step body treatment.
