REFRESH your routine! A mist might seem like a trivial skincare step, unless it is of course made exclusively from ultra-hydrating, dna-protective, oxygenating and pore-refining ingredients! Our filler-free mist is a daily multi-vitamin for the skin and unlike toners which can be astringent and drying, REFRESH is more akin to a serum or essence. Not only will it help reduce inflammation, minimize pores, promote elasticity, suppress bacterial infections and protect cell health, it will also help subsequent products penetrate and act more effectively.
Generally speaking hydrated skin allows better penetration than dehydrated skin, and without this humectant step, many products applied directly to dry skin may only settle on the stratum corneum instead of fully penetrating into the deeper layers of the dermis. Beyond humectants, REFRESH contains ingredients such as zinc, copper, and magnesium and selenium. These minerals are known to stimulate and oxygenate while inhibiting free radical damage and glycation (which degrades elasticity). We have also added Methylsulfonylmethane - which may sound scary but it is a compound found naturally in plants, animals and humans, and is a well known dietary supplement for arthritis. It is also known to soften the skin and improve permeability to clear the pores, prevent acne by controlling keratin production, improve the strength and elasticity of the skin, and allow products to absorb more readily.
Other exemplary ingredients include yarrow, a LINNÉ favorite for toning the skin and minimizing excessive oil production. Additionally you'll find olive leaf which provides anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties known to accelerate wound healing, as well as prevent sun damage, psoriasis, and dehydration. To keep moisture trapped in the skin, improve elasticity and minimize the appearance of wrinkles, we further include a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid.
This deeply hydrating and protective potion is a critical step for all skin types and routines, no matter the season. Think of it as your unassuming secret weapon for glowing, clear, and youthful skin.
