How to Get Pretty, Youthful and Healthy Lips and Skin

Everyone wants to look their best, and skin products can help you to do that. Unfortunately, so many beauty products contain all kinds of ingredients that just aren’t conducive to good health, and I believe they actually can keep you from looking your best. Many conventional products contain petroleum-based ingredients, and others may use plants that are grown conventionally with pesticides and other chemicals. How can that be healthy?
Lip products have always presented a conundrum for me. Like all of us girls, I want pretty lips, but most lipsticks and glosses contain petroleum-based ingredients, which can break down collagen over time. Since your lips are part of your skin, collagen is essential for keeping them plump and youthful looking. Not only that, but given the proximity of my lips to the rest of my mouth, ingesting a little bit of the product I use on them is a given. There is no way I want to swallow petroleum or other toxins, even to keep my lips looking pretty.
That’s why I was so thrilled to stumble on Sally B’s B Glossy Lip Gloss. I discovered the gloss when I was dong a film in Atlanta. It was in a gift bag they gave to the actors in the film, who often ask me to try products to see what I think. It turns out that this stuff is absolutely amazing – it’s almost become a daily obsession for me. It comes in four gorgeous colors: Ruby’s Red, Copper Penny, Every Blond’s Pink, and Primrose. Not only are the colors pretty, but this lip gloss moisturizes my lips, as well. My favorite color is Ruby Red, which I use almost daily. I also really like the Copper Penny.
The lip gloss comes in liquid form with a wand. The cost is $18 for a 7-gram wand, which will last you quite a while, even with daily use. It contains organic, natural ingredients including organic beeswax, vitamin E, organic castor oil, organic shea butter, organic carnauba wax, organic lecithin, micas, and organic essential oil of peppermint. A full 95 percent of the ingredients are organic, and they contain no chemical preservatives or artificial colors that will diminish your natural beauty.

Natural Alternative to Latisse

Luxe Lashes, No Rx Required

Not exactly batting a thousand when it comes to your lashes? Fear not: thickening-mascara spider eyes and pricey single-lash extensions aren't your only alternatives. Now there are options galore for taking matters into your own hands and growing them long and lovely.
Celebs like Brooke Shields and Claire Danes don't let anyone come between them and their Latisse, the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for growing longer, fuller, and darker lashes. But not all of us have our derms on speed dial (or $120 in our pockets to spend on the latest beauty craze). Still others are scared off by the potential side effects of Latisse's main ingredient, bimatoprost, which may cause darkened skin and irises. And so began the eye-popping onslaught of over-the-counter lash enhancers.
From high-end players like Peter Thomas Roth and Trish McEvoy to drugstore beauty addicts' faves like Wet n Wild and L'Oréal Paris, dozens of companies are debuting lash enhancers, often promising results within four to eight weeks of nightly usage. Even Whole Foods, not usually known for glamour gear, will be carrying an all-natural lash enhancer starting this April. (MyChelle's Lash & Brow Serum)
"Boston has been lash crazy for many years now, using both OTC and prescription lash enhancers," says Dr. Ioannis P. Glavas, an oculofacial plastic surgeon known as "Boston's eyelid specialist." From his Newbury Street office, he writes about five Latisse scripts weekly.
The eye-opening question: can something you get at a beauty shop create the same effect as doctor-sanctioned meds? Some say yes, others no. If you want to give them a try, there are few things to know about OTC lash builders.

Eyes on the Prize
Pretty packaging can't change what's in (or not in) a formula. When choosing a lash enhancer, read the ingredient list. Look for polypeptides, proteins, minerals, and vitamins.
"Biotin is vitamin B, which is known for its effectiveness on the nails and hair," says Dr. Glavas. "It has been used successfully in treating hair loss when someone has vitamin deficiency." He also recognizes peptides as promoters of healthy cell growth. "They promote growth and longevity of cultured human fibroblasts [as] proven in clinical studies."

The recent onslaught of Latisse commercials may make it easy to forget, but the quest for luxe lashes is nothing new: more than 5000 years ago, the ancient Egyptians were using kohl to darken their lashes. Fortunately, we've progressed a bit beyond formulations made from charcoal and crocodile dung —  you know that there's a bevy of new OTC lash enhancers arriving on shelves near you. Here's one more product pick that promises to have you batting a thousand in no time.  

MyChelle's Ultimate Lash & Brow Serum:

With unique, clinically proven breakthrough peptides and nourishing botanical conditioners, Ultimate Lash and Brow Serum naturally improves the appearance of lash length, darkness and volume to make eyelashes look noticeably longer, lusher and lovelier than ever before.
Our proprietary Myracle Peptide Complex combines cutting edge peptide technology with restorative Apple Fruit Stem Cells to promote healthy lash and brow formation and protect hair follicles. Moisturizing Cactus Flower banishes brittleness while a synergistic blend of phytonutrients improves the strength and density of lashes and inhibits hair loss.

Lash enhancement is now one of the fastest growing categories in beauty and personal care. As part of their interest in age defense, customers are actively seeking new solutions for thinning brows and sparse, brittle or stubby lashes. Ultimate Lash and Brow Serum delivers proven, dramatic results without prescriptions, irritation or unwanted side effects.

Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 (Myracle Peptide Complex) stimulates production of keratin, the proteins that form eyebrows and lashes. In clinical trials, it increased eyelash length and thickness by 25% in only 2 weeks and 72% after 6 weeks.

Apple Fruit Stem Cells (Myracle Peptide Complex) stimulate and protect hair stem cells, supporting hair growth and inhibiting graying.

Copper Peptides (Myracle Peptide Complex) increase the flow of blood and nutrients to the follicle and help extend hair's growth phase.

Tricholastyl(tm), a blend of healing flavonoids, inhibits the damaging glycation reaction that ages hair follicles and actively helps reduce hair loss.

Anageline(r), from the lupine plant, improves follicle thickness and prevents hair loss.

Apply once daily to base of upper lashes (where eyelashes meet skin) from the inner corner to the outer edge.  Apply to eye brow area.  Do not apply in eye or to lower lid.

Stress Relief Benefits of Lavender

The benefits of lavender
The stress relief benefits of lavender are safe, gentle and dependable. Lavender has been used by herbalists for hundreds of years. It has a mild pleasant gentle aroma. It is easy to grow and is therefore relatively inexpensive.
Lavender flower is calming and relaxing both physically and emotionally.
  • Lavender is particularly useful for easing tension headaches, and other physical aches and pains.
  • It is very useful for easing the digestive upsets and gas which often accompany stress.
  • It has been used to ease depression.
  • Lavender is said to be very helpful for people who are “stuck” in repetitive patterns of thinking about a particularly stressful or traumatic event or circumstance in their lives.
  • It is also often used for encouraging deep restful
    sleep and stress relief.
  • Lavender soothes the respiratory system, making
    breathing for stress relief easier.
The physical constituents of lavender thought to be the source the healing benefits of lavender include: flavonoids, coumarins, triterpenes and of course volatile oils for which lavender is famous.

How to Use Lavender

Making lavender herbal tea - some herbalists suggest taking ½ to 1 teaspoon of the dried flowers per serving. Place the lavender flowers in a cup, pouring boiling water over the herb. Then cover the cup and letting the tea steep for 10 to 15 minutes before drinking. This can be done a couple of times a day and is generally considered quite safe. (It is suggested to avoid using large amounts of lavender during pregnancy.)
Lavender is often used in the form of an essential oil. It is sometimes considered to be an almost universal remedy which helps bring the body to a state of balance.
The benefits of lavender oil are similar to those of the herb. But the process of using the oil is different. Since essential oils are generally purchased in small bottles, they are very portable and convenient.
There are many varied uses for lavender essential oil.
  • With lavender essential oil one might place a few drops on the pillow case at night to promote restful sleep or toss a lavender sachet under your pillow.
  • Apply a few drops of lavender oil to temples or some other part of  head to ease a tension headache or eyestrain. (Please keep the oil away from the eyes.)
  • The oil is well known as helpful burn remedy. It can be applied directly to the skin.
  • Lavender essential oil can also be applied directly to aching or painful muscles or joints.
  • The benefits of lavender oil include relaxation from overwork, one of the main causes of stress. Try rubbing a few drops of the oil between the palms of your hands and then bringing your palms to your face and breathing deeply of the scent. It can bring soothing relief.
  • Even adding a few drops of lavender essential oil to the washing machine can also add a soothing fresh aroma to the laundry room and clothes and help make routine housework more enjoyable. It's another example of the diverse benefits of lavender.

Some Helpful SkinCare Tips!

1. Did you know the #1 anti-aging product you can use is a Sunscreen! UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermal layer of the skin and can cause a host of aging effects such as: destruction of collagen and elastin; hyper pigmentation; and damaged DNA.

2. Are you cleansing long enough? To get the most out of your MyChelle Cleansers apply to damp skin and rub in circular motions for 60-90 seconds. This will allow the enzymes to gently exfoliate the skin, leaving you refreshed, rejuvenated and ready for your next MyChelle step.

3. Don’t forget your décolleté, the neck and chest area. The décolleté is the second place that shows the sign of aging, first being the eye area. Help prevent age spots and elastin degradation by using your MyChelle Apple Brightening System and age defense products in this region. Sun damage and wrinkles aren’t just on the face; give the rest of your body the MyChelle Glow.

4. Kombuchka (Black Tea Ferment is referred to as the immortal health elixir, promoting health and longevity). It works to prevent the reaction of protein and sugar that naturally occurs in the skin which increases aging. This reaction results in the skin becoming rigid and a decrease in skin radiance. It is found in Deep Repair Cream and Deep Repair Cream Unscented.

5. Improve hydration with exfoliation! Often time’s dry skin has a buildup of dead skin cells. Removing those skin cells with an exfoliator will help hydrating products penetrate better and be more effective. Try this easy at home facial once a week in the evening. Step 1. Use a cleanser with Alpha Hydroxy Acids like the Fruit Enzyme Cleanser. Step 2. Use the Tropical Skin Smoother to slough off the dead cells. Step 3. Apply the Hydrating Cactus Mask to deeply hydrate and prevent moisture loss. Step 4. Use the Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum to restore moisture balance and improve suppleness. Step 5. Apply the Revitalizing Night Cream and let your skin be drenched in moisture and nourishment while you sleep. Your skin will look like you just spent a weekend at the spa - freshly hydrated with a glowing complexion.

6. Did you know that if skin is striped of oil, it’s unbalanced? This causes the body’s protection mechanism to produce additional oil to compensate for the dryness on the surface.  The goal is to control and monitor the oil production.  Use MyChelle Clear Skin Cleanser, Fruit Enzyme Mist, Oil Free Grapefruit Cream to keep your skin balanced.

7. Vitamin C will increase radiance by lightening hyperpigmentation spots and improving overall skin luminosity. It will “lighten, brighten and tighten”. It is a powerful ingredient for any Customer, of any age, and of any skin tone.

8. An idyllic stratum corneum (top layer of the skin) water content is 20-35%. When the water content is below 10% the skin is visibly dry. One of the best ways to hydrate your skin is with Hyaluronic Acid, a humectant that holds 1000 times its weight in water! It is the camel of the skin care industry! Recommend the Serious Hyaluronic or Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum to boost hydration levels underneath a daily moisturizer. The skin is instantly plumped and hydrated!

9. Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) is the loss of moisture through skins surface. It occurs when the protective barrier of the skin is weakened, causing it to become dry, dehydrated and inflamed. The skin is affected by TEWL more at night due to increased temperature and permeability of the skins surface. Moisturizing oils and essential fatty acids can help to reduce TEWL, and help to hydrate and restore the skin. Use the Ultra Hyaluronic Serum or any of the MyChelle Moisturizers to prevent TEWL.

10. The eye area is the most delicate on the face and is in constant motion due to blinking and expressions. Because of these factors it is a necessity to use eye products on a daily basis.

The Fabulous Eye Cream is an advanced formula that is moisturizing and nutrient-rich which helps to rejuvenate the delicate eye tissue. Research shows that when applied twice daily for 20 days, Fabulous Eye Cream can reduce wrinkle depth by 15%!

Magnolia Fresh Eyes is a blend of peptides and plant extracts strengthen weakened capillaries and promotes repair for a well-rested look.

11. Ever wonder why men age so well!? Partly because they exfoliate daily through shaving. To create a deep cleansing whip for a daily exfoliation, mix together the Fruit Enzyme Cleanser and Fruit Enzyme Scrub. Use in the morning in the shower for a luminous glow that lasts all day long!

12. The eye lashes serve as protection from any invasions into the eyes. So not only are long lashes beautiful, but we are intended to have long luscious lashes to protect our eyes. Bat your thicker, fuller eyelashes after using the Ultimate Lash and Brow Serum. The clinically proven Myracle Peptide Complex and Apple Fruit Stem Cells naturally improve the appearance of lash length, darkness and volume. A clinical trial showed the Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 works to increase eyelash thickness and length by 25% within 2

13. Vitamin A can help to address different skin concerns:
·         Benefits an acne concern by retexturing and removing dead skin cells
·         Support the body’s ability to build collagen and elastin. Vitamin A Plus Serum accelerates cellular turnover for clear, youthful, even toned skin.

The highest quality ingredients make for the most effective products available.
    Ingredients matter...and quality ingredients matter most.

Whether delivering essential moisture, encouraging resilience, improving efficacy or adding natural, aroma fragrance, each ingredient is carefully selected for its particular effects and its interaction with the whole composition.
  2. Hauschka manufacturer WALA Heilmittel has been studying and working with nurturing plant and mineral extracts since 1935. Over the decades they’ve developed an in-depth understanding of the way certain plants mirror specific skin functions and the manner in which each plant interacts with the skin to stimulate and support a toned, balanced and radiant complexion.
  3. We rely exclusively on healthy, ecologically and socially responsible sources for our ingredients.

Those cooperatives now provide all the certified organic shea butter WALA needs to manufacture its Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products.
  4. WALA owns and operates its own Biodynamic garden and farm, which provides a number of the ingredients used in its homeopathic remedies and the Dr.Hauschka Skin Care line. The vast majority of ingredients in the Dr.Hauschka Skin Care line are from Biodynamic and organic sources, and not a single ingredient comes from an organization involved in animal testing.
    1. Our natural botanical preservatives help keep products fresh without the use of chemical additives. In this way, we're able to maintain the vitality of our Biodynamic and organic plant ingredients, delivering their nurturing, supportive qualities directly to you.

five fabulous uses for grapeseed oil in skin & body care


1. Use to treat blemishes
A few dabs with a cotton swab directly on the blemish 2x a day does wonders! The cotton swab is key because it prevents the transfer of bacteria from your finger tips to other areas of the skin, which causes blemishes to spread.

2. Use as a makeup remover 
Grapeseed oil effectively removes even the most stubborn eye makeup and helps to treat your skin at the same time with it's potent antioxidants and vitamins. It performs double duty tasks by targeting fine lines and wrinkles with powerful polyphenolswhile removing makeup.

3. Use as a massage oil
Massage therapists love grapeseed oil for it's quick absorption and compatibility with all skin types from sensitive to oily.

4. Use to moisturize extremely sensitive skin
100% pure grapeseed oil is a perfect choice for people with super sensitive skin. Our cold expeller pressed oil is not exposed to any chemicals like solvent extracted (cheaper and less effective) grape seed oils. It also does not contain any preservatives, essential oils or additional ingredients. This makes it an ideal choice for moisturizing if you have allergies and/or reactions to lotions which need preservatives so they do not grow bacteria. Be very wary of any lotion that claims it is "preservative free" unless you are keeping it in the fridge between applications and using it up in 1-2 weeks. The best rule of thumb for extremely sensitive skin is to stick to products with a small ingredient list that explain how the ingredient was formed. 100% pure grapeseed oil has just 1 ingredient!

5. Use in your bath
Add 100% pure grapeseed oil to a warm drawn bath to moisturize as you soak and relax. Make a cup of tea or sip on some cucumber water. You'll hop out hydrated and relaxed!

Vitamin C

Unlocking Photo-Aging...Beyond the Photo in the Attic’s a word which conjures gothic images of hidden portraits in an attic which age in our stead. While this romantic notion is the fantasy of many women and men, the reality of our faces, the signature of our Self to another, changing with age, remains.
The truth is, our skin constantly evolves and our skin ages both 1) biologically based upon inherited skin tendencies and 2) Photo-ages based on the effects of our lifestyle due to smoking, pollution, sun exposure, diet and stress. Photo-aging damage includes but is not limited to: wrinkles, dark blotches, freckles, leathery texture and loss of elasticity.
Recent studies show that it takes only eight relatively small dosages of UVA before changes are evident, and these changes are not even prevented by using a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 22!
Topical Vitamin C Can Be Targeted Directly to Skin to Combat Photo-Aging
Topical Vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant for skin protection and should be a useful adjunct to (but not replacement for) sunscreens. It is the process of oxidation that can destroy body tissues. (This is the same process that causes cars to rust, and rubber tires to crack.) In time, it is believed that these changes may result in connective tissue breakdown (aging and wrinkles) and skin cancer. The goal is to interfere with environmental ravages, including sunlight, smoking and pollution. Vitamin C not only neutralizes free radicals destructive to the skin, but also actively regenerates Vitamin E which serves to protect all cell membranes from the degenerative effects of these environmental offenders.
Topical Vitamin C Stimulates Collagen Growth
Vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis. It is the only antioxidant that has been proven to increase collagen synthesis. Collagen is a protein which contributes to the skin's firmness and elasticity and can be considered the structural steel of skin. The body’s ability to produce collagen slows dramatically as we get older. In addition, ascorbic acid is necessary for “crosslinking” one collagen molecule to another collagen molecule. This reaction is required for tissue strength.
Topical Vitamin C has a Reservoir Effect
Stabilized topical vitamin C becomes an inherent part of the skin. It cannot be washed or rubbed off. Testing shows that it is fully protective for as long as three days after application.
Topical Vitamin C Controls Inflammation and Promotes Healing
Topical vitamin C is capable of controlling the inflammatory response associated with ultraviolet light (sunburn). It is protective even when it is applied after sun exposure. It also is helpful in speeding the healing process. It is often recommended as a pre and post-operative regimen for laser resurfacing patients.

MyChelle education

Here is some information on our newest product line, MyChelle

Serums: Targeted Care to Balance, Nourish, Restore and Strengthen

Super-charge your daily skin care routine with an intensive,
restoring and strengthening serum.

Super-charge your daily skin care routine with an intensive, restoring and strengthening serum. Highly concentrated, yet lightly textured and fast penetrating, serums provide a potent dose of nutrients and active ingredients deep within the layers of your skin—farther than moisturizers can go. What you see on the surface of your skin can be a side-effect of what happens underneath, deep in the dermal layer, and the targeted action of a serum empowers your skin to correct specific skin issues. Serums work deep down to bring oil and hydration into balance, strengthen your skin's structure, increase firmness and resiliency, and restore youthful vibrancy.

MyChelle facial serums <>  address a multitude of skin issues. Whether wrinkled, aging, sun damaged, acne-prone, or rosacea-prone conditions are your concern, each serum targets where it's needed most, and keeps your skin on track to becoming - and staying - healthy and beautiful-looking.

A good skin care regimen is important to maintaining the health and beauty of your skin — that's a fact. A gentle cleanser, balancing toner and nutrient rich, hydrating moisturizer are key components to any daily program, but as skin ages, experiences damage from sun exposure, or distressing breakouts pop up, a little extra defense is warranted. Enter serums, powerful treatments designed to zero in on a specific need.

Serums, by virtue of their thinner consistency and strong delivery vehicles, penetrate deep within the skin, quickly releasing their corrective ingredients where they can have the strongest effect. And since they are designed for targeted action, they can be layered for multiple issues (ie, sun damage, dehydration).

MyChelle Serums Address a Multitude of Concerns

Signs of Aging
 A well-known cause of extrinsic aging is sun exposure. It wreaks havoc at a cellular level, boosting free radical damage and creating discoloration, sagging, wrinkling and a leathery appearance. In the world of skin care one of the sun's strongest opponents is Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid). The amazing attributes of this vitamin were first discovered by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling, when it was found that Vitamin C is key in healthy collagen production, the structural support for the skin. And it doesn't stop there, Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant, demolishing free radicals, and giving skin back its youthful defense. MyChelle's Perfect C Serum <>  provides an unprecedented 17% stabilized L-Ascorbic Acid, along with Retinol (pure Vitamin A), and a multiple of antioxidants. This skin repairing serum not only helps alleviate and protect against signs of sun damage, it also helps clear blemishes as well.

Wrinkles are the hallmark of aging skin, but they don't have to be. What if, instead, aging skin had the opportunity to stay youthfully smooth and line- free? A remarkable group of advanced ingredients, peptides, are promising just that. Argireline® (Acetyl Hexapeptide 3) hailed as a nontoxic, alternative to injections, has been documented by the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, to "reduce wrinkle depth up to 30% in 30 days of treatment", and furthermore "significantly inhibited the release of neurotransmitters". What this means is that it temporarily eases the release of neurotransmitters responsible for the intensity of facial muscle contractions, preventing and reducing the look of wrinkles from repetitive facial expression, without the actual muscle paralysis of an injectable. Argireline®, combined with Instalift® Goji GF, a glycopeptide antioxidant from goji berries, gives your skin a smoother, more sculpted appearance. Instalift® Goji GF provides the feel of instant firming, and in clinical studies was found to increase firmness by 26.8% within one hour - making it an excellent instant, as well as long-term firming ingredient.

MyChelle's G2 Instant Firming Serum <>  offers both of these powerhouse anti- aging ingredients to target signs of age, and turn back the clock to a more youthful-looking complexion.

Another force to be reckoned with in the war against aging is MyChelle's NoTox™ Anti-Wrinkle Serum <> . Based on the premise of a non-injectable topical line filling treatment, No-Tox™ Anti-Wrinkle Serum utilizes some of the most powerful wrinkle repair peptides available. SYN®-COLL, a patented bioactive clinically proven to be safe and effective, works by mimicking the body's own repair processes to support the production of collagen. Added is SYN®-TACKS, an innovative combination of two peptides that interact with protein within the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ). DEJ provides the skin its structure and func- tional integrity - which starts to decline around the age of 30. SYN®-TACKS improves this functionality, fortifying and stimulating collagen and strengthening the skin. In clinical studies, SYN®-TACKS was shown to improve overall skin tone by 32% after two months use. And lastly, NoTox™ Anti-Wrinkle Serum contains Proteasyl® TP, a botanical peptide derived from peas. Proteasyl® TP thwarts the enzymes responsible for the destruction of healthy proteins in the skin due to aging and stress, and slows free radical proliferation. This, in turn, helps ease signs of aging, resulting in firmer-looking skin. In a double blind clinical study, Proteasyl® TP was used twice daily for 3 weeks. 12 hours after the last application skin elasticity had shown improvement of 14.6%, and 24 hours after the last application, elasticity had improved by 16.7%.

Another firming serum offered by MyChelle is Serious Hyaluronic Firming Serum <>  which supplies both firming peptide properties and ultra hydration from hyaluronic acid. It also visibly firms your skin and provides a protective moisture barrier in seconds with a skin smoothing starch.

Acne-Prone Skin
 Acne-prone or blemished skin can be particularly frustrating at any age. Clear Skin Serum <>  gives skin prone to breakouts a fighting chance. It contains super purifying SCO2 Totarol™, known to be stronger and more effective than Tea Tree Oil at targeting and reducing the effects of propionium bacteria - the underlying cause of breakouts.

And for blemished or oily skin getting the right balance of hydration can be challenging indeed. Clear Skin Serum calms oil production and clears pores without over drying or causing skin to flake or peel. L-Lactic Acid, unlike other AHAs, serves a dual function of both exfoliating and clearing pores of debris, while softening and hydrating the skin.

Redness and Discoloration
 MyChelle offers superb solutions for rosacea-prone skin, complexions with age-spots and other discoloration. Capillary Calming Serum <>  soothes visible redness and calms rosacea-prone skin by utilizing ultra soothing Canadian Willowherb Extract. Patented for its wide range uses to calm the skin and control free radical damage, Canadian Willowherb Extract has been shown to reduce the appearance of redness and irritation faster than 1% hydrocor- tisone cream - without steroidal side-effects.

Apple Brightening Serum <>  is much more than just a fruit derived treat for the skin. It contains Applephenon™, a potent skin brightener rich in procyanidin, which has been shown to exhibit strong antioxidant and antimicrobial effects, resulting in the control of melanin formation - and a remarkably clearer, more even skin tone.

The Power of MyChelle Serums
 All of MyChelle's intensive serums are designed to be used daily, on freshly cleansed skin, prior to toner and moisturizer and may be layered one over the other* for multiple corrective effects, if needed. The bioactive ingredients are all at levels proven to be effective in clinical studies, assuring you the most powerful results possible. In the ever-evolving world of skin care, one thing is certain, MyChelle facial serums are an innovative blend of natural technologies and an important part of your healthy skin care regimen.
