1. Primer has a lot of benefits – it lightly moisturizes, creates a smooth surface, fills in fine lines, and controls oil throughout the day.
2. 90% of wrinkles are from sun exposure, so slather on the sunscreen! It’s much easier to prevent the damage than it is to fix it afterwards.
3. Bathe with lukewarm water and take short showers. Hot water strips your skin of the oils that it naturally produces.
4. To take the red out of an occasional pimple that pops up at the wrong time, put a few drops of a red eye relief product for a few seconds.
5. Papaya contains the enzyme papain, which has great antibacterial and wound healing abilities. It also aids in removing dead, damaged skin.
6. By adding zinc to lotions and creams, acne eruption will end up reduced. Zinc repairs wounds and reduces inflammation.
7. Researchers have found that 5% tea-tree oil is as effective against acne as a 5% benzoyl peroxide solution.
8. Rinse your razor in alcohol after you use it so any bacteria it harbors won’t transfer itself to your body the next time you use it.
9. Exercising causes more blood flow which can aid in the delivery of additional nutrients and oxygen to your follicles for healthy hair.

It started out as a renewable energy project—and turned into an unexpected anti-aging discovery. Algenist comes from a team of biotechnology scientists based in San Francisco.
While researching microalgae-based renewable energy solutions, the team uncovered Alguronic Acid, a patented, powerful compound responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. When scientifically tested, it also demonstrated significant anti-aging properties, increasing elastin synthesis by up to 32%* and cellular regeneration by up to 55%**.
Rooted in the breakthrough discovery of Alguronic Acid, Algenist focuses on the ability of targeted, bioactive ingredients to deliver visible anti-aging results to the skin.
The result? Breakthrough skincare for younger-looking skin at any age.
Algenist products are:
• Suitable for all skin types
• Dermatologist tested

• Synthetic dyes
Average result measured following an in vitro test with Alguronic Acid (0.1%*, 0.04%**)
