Shanghai, China, June 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Shanghai-based natural skincare guru Olya Eastman has launched a new seasonal spring skin nutrition menu that features five exotic new ingredients sourced from around the world - each with special healing powers appropriate for post-winter skincare needs.
Spring treatments focus on deep purification and extra nutrition and vitamin boost for skin after cold winter months, lack of sun and winter toxin’s buildup.
Said Eastman, “Shanghai winter takes it toll on skin - it gets dry, dull and exhausted. So we selected some extra nutritious and potent ingredients to boost your skin’s immunity, gently bring out toxins and wake it up from winter hibernation!”
To counteract such common cold weather problems as dry, dull skin, lack of energy and tone, clogged pores and skin roughness she has selected several high performance super foods for the skin that give much needed minerals, amino-acids, vitamins and essential fatty acids, to “awaken” and help skin transition into spring.
Some of the fresh fruits, oils and herbs introduced in her Spring menu are: Mangosteen for skin detox, anti-aging Tamanu oil, toning Elderberry oil, tonic Ashwagandha herb, and antioxidant Cranberry. Some of the properties these ingredients feature for healthy skincare include:
