This rejuvenating, skin-supporting facial serum is lovingly wildcrafted with foraged red reishi mushroom, known as the "the mushroom of immortality" in Chinese medicine. The compounds in this mushroom have many benefits for the skin and are known to deeply hydrate, lock in moisture, smooth and plump appearance, improve elasticity, and repair and protect against damage from oxidative stress. It's appropriate for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
This botanical preparation is made over a period of 6-8 weeks, allowing the mushroom to slowly release its goodness into skin-friendly oils of olive and jojoba. **See the benefits of olive and jojoba oils for all skin types (including those who are prone to breakouts) in the carrier oil description section directly below.
About the skin-loving carrier oils used in this product:
My oils of choice for this serum are extra virgin olive oil and jojoba oil. Olive oil has been used for skincare since ancient times and contains antioxidants that fight free-radical damage, and an ingredient called squalene, which is extremely hydrating. It also contains linoleic acid, which helps keep moisture from evaporating. Jojoba oil is hydrating, controls oil on your face, soothes skin, and keeps skin calm and comfortable. The vitamin E and B complexes in this oil help in skin repair and damage control. Both olive oil and jojoba oil have a low comedogenic rating of 2, so they should not clog pores.
How to use this serum:
Serums are highly concentrated preparations, so you will only need a few drops, ideally applied to dampened skin for best absorption and to lock in hydration. If your face feels oily after application, you are probably using too much. Place 2-3 drops in your palm, rub your hands together, pat into your moist skin, and gently massage it in. A little of this serum goes a long way. You can even add a tiny amount to your daily moisturizer, to give your skin some glow.
**I highly recommend pairing this serum with one of my face creams and toner for optimal effects. After cleansing, use toner, then serum, and complete your beauty regimen with the face cream.**
