Skin benefits of Sea Buckthorn

Antioxidant. Though it has many other properties, Sea Buckthorn can be utilized only for its antioxidant power. Rich in essential vitamins protects the skin from free radical aging, even acting as a mild sunscreen to protect the skin from  UV rays.

When free radicals are let loose in the skin, they begin to cause some problems. Specifically, they break down the skin's support structures, which causes premature lines, wrinkles, and even the sagging, hollow skin that indicates age.

By fighting these free radicals, Sea Buckthorn lessens the appearance of these signs of aging.

After sun salve. If you are sunburned or have too much time in the sun, you can feel the UV rays wreaking havoc on your skin. A Sea Buckthorn product can calm and soothe.

It can also soothe burned skin, mitigate the redness and the pain that often follows sun extreme sun exposure.

Skin restoring. Though we rarely have a real wound on our faces, we may have a blemish or a pimple that we could not help but pick at and now have a small scar as a result.

Sea Buckthorn works deep in the under-layers of skin to deliver the nutrients our skin needs. Plus, it increases circulation so that irritants can be carried away, and your complexion can regenerate.

Bronzing treatment. Though not its primary purpose, Sea Buckthorn can be used to enhance an artificial tan or create a natural-looking glow without having to go to a tanning salon or have another chemical-laden treatment. Regular application of Sea Buckthorn, because of its beta-carotene levels, will naturally darken the skin.

Slow down the signs of aging. Though you can't stop aging, its rate can be slowed down. Using antioxidants and other nutrients to increase cell turnover and growth speed, Sea Buckthorn can delay the development of some signs of aging.
