What Skincare To Use With Your Contour
Clinical studies have shown, pairing your red LED light therapy treatment with an antioxidant green tea cream can speed up the anti-wrinkle effects of the light treatment, giving results 10x faster than LED on its own. Research studies show that MAYSAMA’s green rooibos extract has a comparable antioxidant capacity to high-grade green tea.
Maysama Green Rooibos Pressed Serum
Maysama’s unique aspalathin-enriched Green Rooibos Extract is an antioxidant powerhouse, plus 3% niacinamide and an extensive line up of multi-tasking ingredients inspired by Korean Beauty, including Centella Asiatica, Sea-buckthorn and Liquorice, this antioxidant serum is formulated to protect and repair your skin from environmental damage and promote healthy skin.
Loaded with humectants, including pure Aloe vera gel, glycerine, and hyaluronic acid, and expertly balanced with dermal conditioners, such as argan and baobab oil, as well as Vitamin E, our lightweight gel serum is formulated to hydrate, soothe and nourish the skin, whilst minimizing oxidative stress and increasing cellular healing. Supporting more than 85% active ingredients, MAYSAMA Green Rooibos Pressed Serum packs a powerful punch for skin rejuvenation. With a pH of 5.0 to 5.3, free from essential oils, and no added fragrance, it is ideal for even the most sensitive skin.
What is Green Rooibos?
Green Rooibos comes from unfermented leaves and has a much higher antioxidant content than red rooibos, as the flavonoids have not been destroyed by oxidation. MAYSAMA’s Green Rooibos Extract, with patented extraction, offers a bioactive ingredient with 70 x the antioxidant potential of organic rooibos.
Rooibos serves as an antioxidant powerhouse and antibacterial agent, as well as a rich source of alpha-hydroxy acid and zinc to fight off premature aging. The high content of flavonoids helps to reduce inflammation caused by oxidative stress, actively working to repair damaged skin and restore epidermal layers.
Why I love it
This bioavailable antioxidant not only enhances cellular resistance to oxidative stress and provides protection against apoptosis, cell death, but it also protects and repairs preadipocytes, the main fat cells in adipose tissue. It is my go-to serum to use in combination with LED light therapy.
