diy sea buckthorn & royal orchid facial cream for dry/ mature skin types

hippophae & royal orchid facial cream by Stella Crown
Today, I will introduce you a 24-hour facial cream for dry and mature skin types, a finished product that has been updated and offers a moisturising and refreshing effect, while at the same time is protecting and softening. A definitely anti-inflammatory and soothing cream which prevents the skin from premmature aging.
Special guests: Sea buckthorn oil because it replenishes the lost moisture and enhances the skin regeneration in a natural way. It restores the natural skin balance, it moisturises deeply and provides shining and vitality. Sea buckthorn is infused in avocado oil, which enhances cellular regeneration, preventing aging.
On the other hand, royal orchid is rich in proteins, minerals and flavonoids; a powerful antioxidant and anti-aging active ingredient which revitalises and moisturises instantly.
