Healthy Skin is Overall Wellness

“Healthy skin is a reflection of overall Wellness” said an enlightened soul few years back. Nothing can be more nearer to truth, in matters of skincare, than this piece of advice. We all love glowing, flawless, even toned skin which is free from wrinkles, age spots and sun damages. Experts suggest that our night time skincare routine is far more important than the day care routine. Most of the time we are advised to use various night creams for different purposes. Sometimes to retain the moisture or to rejuvenate the dull skin as well as for wrinkle treatment. Generally almost all the night creams contain little or higher quantity of preservatives in the form of chemicals. So to avoid the harmful effects, the next best thing which we can do is to use some alternative which is equally good and without preservatives and chemicals.The solutions lie in the form of Cold Pressed Oils.
