The reflection we see in the mirror everyday is a reflection we want to see as Healthy, Vibrant, Energized, and beautiful.  Astara Skincare is an amazing botanical skincare line that will do just that!

Being healthy doesn’t just start and stop at the gym or in your refrigerator it also extends to what we are using on our skin on a daily basis.  I have been obsessed with skincare and skincare products pretty much my entire adult life.  I have used so many different products for so many different reasons; acne, dry skin, pregnancy, eczema, hyper pigmentation, loss of that glow we all know and love, wrinkles, you name it, I have probably tried it.  One thing I noticed with all the products I have tried over time was that my skin never really changed, until now.  Using Astara Skincare has made my skin healthy, revived, and provides constant nourishment everyday.  Our skin is the largest organ in our body, so we NEED to cleanse, repair, replenish, and revive it on a daily basis.  Astara Skincare feeds your skin at the cellular level with extremely effective natural ingredients.  

The first step to healthy, balanced skin is through the cleanser you choose.  Astara has a life saving Blue Flame Purifying Gel Cleanser  that deeply purifies your skin.  My skin is prone to breakouts and with this Blue Flame Purifying Cleanser it helps to balance the sebum production that causes pimples (eek) and works to clarify my blemish-prone skin.  

The second part of the cleansing process comes from the Blue Flame Purifying Toning Mist.  I am in love with this toner, it is simply amazing.  I never used a toner before, but now I can’t go without it.  This toner helps to smooth the texture of my skin, purify and balance, and stimulate the natural renewal process.   The cleanser and effects of the renewal process from the toner equate to one powerhouse duo that prepares your skin to drink up all the anti aging properties this skincare has to offer. 

Step two incorporates two powerhouse antioxidants.  The Activated Antioxidant Infusion that is perfect for the daytime and the Age Defying Complex for overnight anti aging hydration.  The Activated Antioxidant Infusion has a creamy base that protects your skin from environmental factors, and reduces the signs of aging.  This creamy infusion is wonderful for the daytime to improve firmness and skin tone.  To me this is a must, because it is a multivitamin for your skin.  As I have said, being healthy is not just lifting weights and meal prepping, it is preparing our skin for the environment we are in everyday.  The Age Defying Complex, which is a potent antioxidant serum, stimulates cell renewal and oxygenation.  It improves clarity, texture and provides continuous deep level time-released antioxidant protection.  This is an amazing serum to use at night after cleansing and toning to strengthen your skin’s natural lipid barrier.  Both of these antioxidant powerhouse products have taken my skin to a whole new level of radiant and have helped reduce the signs of aging. 

Keeping your skin hydrated is an integral step in your skincare system.  The Antioxidant Light Moisturizer and Botanical Eye Treatment help maintain your skins health and prevent cellular damage.  The Antioxidant Light Moisturizer contains vitamins and essential oils to protect the skin from free radicals, environmental toxins, and sun damage.  This moisturizer is lightweight, adds resilience, elasticity and firmness and is great as a base for make-up.  This moisturizer has proven the key to plump and happy skin is to moisturize it.  I use to be so afraid of getting a pimple (eek) that I would use products that never hydrated my skin properly or penetrated into my skin, which in turn would make my skin dry, cracked and aged.

The Botanical Eye Treatment is just what your skin around your eyes are calling our for.  It is rejuvenating, hydrating, soothing, reduces fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness.  It too is lightweight and provides antioxidant protection. 

Astara has six mask that are active treatments for our skin.  Each one is used for specific needs of your skin, but overall are formulated to exfoliate, firm, tone, nourish, and oxygenate.  They are fantastic alone or in combination with others and help restore your skin to a healthy active state.  I can’t say enough good things about each one of these reviving dynamos.  They make you feel like you have been to a spa and your skin look, feel, and stay beautiful.  Astara Skincare has brought my skin back to its youthful essence without stripping my skin of all the natural goodness it needs.  Astara has given me the healthy skin I love, want, and need as a suffer of dry, acne prone skin.  It provides me all the natural nourishment and anti aging properties for my active lifestyle and I couldn’t be more grateful for the healthy benefits it has given to my skin.
