A drop of Dragon's Blood can make a big beauty difference, so much so, Australian beauty brand Qsilica have reformulated their award-winning Skin Regeneration BEAUTY SLEEP Night Cream to harness the anti-ageing power of this ancient, potent ingredient.
While it may sound like fodder for a fiction novel, Dragon's Blood is actually a rare tree sap from the Amazonian Croton Lechleri tree.
It is known to possess healing and rejuvenating properties that positively affect the skin by hydrating on a cellular level"and when paired with Qsilica's hero ingredient, colloidal silica, it's a recipe for glowing skin, naturally.
• Provides antioxidant support to the epidermis;
• Improves the skin barrier to decrease water loss;
• Visually improves the skin surface.
'We naturally lose moisture from our skin when sleeping," says naturopath Shelley Atkin. 'Moisturising before bed with a dedicated night cream is a simple way to minimise this loss. Applying formulated antioxidants helps the epidermis cells repair free radical damage during the night when cellular activities are at their peak."
Qsilica is known for its natural approach to beauty, and its ability to support beauty concerns holistically"from the inside and out. The Australian-made skincare and supplements contain NO nasties, such as parabens, sulphates or synthetic preservatives such as phenoexyethanol.
The Skin Regeneration BEAUTY SLEEP Night Cream is a formulated blend of:
Colloidal silica, olive, jojoba, avocado, lavender, sage essential and calendula oils, as well as shea butter, green tea extract, vitamins E and A, Hyaluronic Acid and now Dragon's Blood.
'The aromatherapy oils also play a very important role in the BEAUTY SLEEP night cream," Atkin says. 'Aromatherapy eases the mind and body, therefore the scent of essential oils can have a powerful effect on the senses to help calm nerves, reduce tension, insomnia and headaches. Meanwhile, sage is known to help fade scars while benefiting ageing skin and inflammation."
