Youth-preserving serum in a mist
This serum-mist is not about hydrating. In fact, it is a dry serum in a liquid format that strives to deliver a very natural skin feel when you or someone else touches your face: the skin is matte, perfectly soft, well-conditioned, springy and alive, and dry—not oily, coated, or sticky from products.
The key ingredients in this formula address wrinkles, loss of skin firmness or vigor, collagen loss, and damaged or weak skin barrier. One special quality of Swing is that it enlivens skin cells, so the tissue appears firmer and more robust, wrinkled areas appear tauter, and there is an overall increased energy in the facial appearance. In addition, the formula subdues surface inflammation, controls congestion-related hyperpigmentation, and reduces acne, thanks to its antimicrobial ingredients.
Earthwise has utilized a very progressive plant ceramide–cholesterol complex that has been scientifically proven to boost the functioning of mature skin on several counts: after the first four weeks of use, it was found that the skin moisture content increased by 27%, transdermal water loss decreased by 32%, and skin elasticity increased by 10%. This complex was proven to increase skin cell differentiation and lipid synthesis (processes that naturally slow as we age) and to improve the skin-barrier function (one marker of poor skin-barrier function is that skin becomes dehydrated easily due to excessive transdermal water loss).
Earthwise has included an ultra-low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid to support mature skin. As we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid in our skin decrease and the likelihood of wrinkles and sagging increases. Hyaluronic acid enhances water content in the skin, resulting in a plumper skin appearance, and it has also been proven to increase skin elasticity. The very low molecular weight of hyaluronic acid means that it penetrates the skin better. Earthwise Beauty's hyaluronic acid is plant-based, vegan, and non-GMO.
Myrrh, frankincense, and rose have been used since antiquity to prevent and soften the appearance of wrinkles. Myrrh and frankincense move energy and stimulate circulation while they dry up dampness, and they are analgesic (pain reducing). To translate the herbalist's language into English: these substances stimulate the metabolic processes in the cells, encourage healthy circulation and expulsion of toxins (which will manifest as less puffiness and a well-oxygenated facial coloring), reduce inflammation (which may appear as redness or red breakouts or rosacea), reduce oiliness, and dry up acne breakouts faster.
Myrrh has been used for thousands of years for wound healing, including for infected wounds, which speaks to its broad antimicrobial properties. Myrrh is very effective for painful acne breakouts (it decreases the pain and speeds their healing), and it facilitates healing of acne breakouts without infection and without scarring.
Mend-all turmeric has been added to reduce hyperpigmentation and redness (inflammation), and German chamomile extract to calm redness and soften the skin tissue. Copaiba resin is another heavy-lifting ingredient that reduces wrinkles and acne and minimizes pore appearance, yet is nonirritating.
The Scent and Energetic Impact:
The base of this mist is a very special distillation of turmeric rhizomes that smells spicy like turmeric, but also surprisingly fresh and even a little green. The green note was punched up with an unusually complex extraction of German blue chamomile, and then added myrrh and frankincense serrata, which provide the warm and dry center.
Spicy, balsamic, and resinous scents have long been associated with spiritual attunement, meditative quiet, and reverence. Saffron enhances these associations, elevating this product to an all-doshas balancer when you use it as an aura mist.
A few sun-infused essences have been added that anchor the product even more deeply in the lands from which many of the ingredients are sourced: Ethiopian garnet gem essence, Ethiopian rainbow opal, Omani frankincense sacra resin essence, and Omani myrrh essence.
Skin Type Recommendations: For all skin types especially oily, oily with acne, and oily and mature. Highly recommended for those living in very hot and humid climates. Noncomedogenic. Nonphotosensitizing.
Mist over freshly cleansed skin morning and night, then follow with your moisturizer of choice. Alternately, the serum-mist may be dispensed with a pump and massaged in using circular motions a few drops at a time, similarly to an essence. Shake periodically to remix.
