I'm over 30 (that's all you're getting), and so I am concerned with my skins ability to produce collagen as the years progress. As a Black Woman, I have a nice amount of melanin in my skin slowing the aging process but I can always help it along by introducing the right things to my skin and body. One of those things is blueberries. It's one thing to eat and drink them, you get an excellent source of omega-3s, vitamins and antioxidants. Applying them to your skin is also a great idea. Blueberries are helpful in strengthening skin and helping broken capillaries heal and look revived.
Another key ingredient in this cream is Avocado Oil. Organic, cold pressed Avocado oil has Potassium, leithin and Vitamin E which are oils that our skin loves to absorb and that makes it perfect to go in a topical cream meant to strengthen skin cells and the skins ability to produce new ones. It's ability to reduce inflammation is also very attractive for a skin cream. I won't speak for anyone else, but puffy eyes are the worst part of my morning. The combination of blueberry seed and avocado oil can significantly reduce dark circles around the eyes that have formed because of dilated blood vessels.
The last key ingredient in this cream is carrot seed oil that is super rich in both vitamins E & C. Carrot seed oil also helps increase circulation, reduce water retention and encourages the growth of new skin cells because it's awesome. The added help toning the skin is just a bonus on top of everything else. I suggest this as a fresh out of the shower cream because your pores are more open and receptive to the benefits this cream has to offer.
The collagen building power of this cream makes it perfect for wrinkles or stretch marks and even cellulite.
I live by this cream. I actually combine the Burn & Cuts Ointment with this minor scar cream and I get great results. I know every website that ever sold a scar cream talks about how great their cream works, but this one is the one that soothed the itching and pain that came from the burn.
I burned my leg on a motorcycle exhaust pipe at Mardi Gras 2017. It was painful and it bubbled up into this big oval on my shin. Then, I bumped into something and popped the bubble! It was horrible. When I came home, I made this cream and I waited for the scab to fully form over the burn to start applying. Within a day of using the cream, the swelling had started to lessen along with the pain. The mixture of analgesics, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties make this be the perfect solution for things like... a motorcycle burn or something. Within 2 weeks the burn was almost healed completely, melanin filled in and I was on my way to a full recovery!
