However, the longer one leaves it on is not necessarily better.

Remember how granny used to have a tipple of Yomeishu before bedtime? During sleep, while our metabolism slows down to let our bodies rest, restorative processes including repair works to skin cells damaged by environmental toxins, free radicals and ultraviolet rays, are running in overdrive.

At night is also the time when your sebaceous and sweat glands are not in overdrive, making it the ideal time to hydrate and moisturise the deeper layers of your skin. Emerald oil is an organic grapeseed oil that comes in a roller ball applicator. it is naturally rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Slick on some on your vital areas before bed. good areas to focus on are your eyes, nasolabial lines, even lips. This is ideal for someone who may not need hydration for the full face but will benefit from spot treatment.
When applied to skin, Emerald oil is quickly absorbed. A breakthrough skin rejuvenating elixir, this ultra-correcting wrinkle eraser radically relaxes facial tension and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wretched wrinkles with regular use.
