A secret ingredient in traditional asian beauty regimens is the key to hydrated, supple skin.
Black may not crack, but that doesn't mean moisture is any less important for our skin. We caught up the CEO of popular skincare line, Purlisse, Jennifer Yen, who created the line because she couldn't find anything on the market that catered to her super sensitive skin. Growing up in an Asian-American home, blue lotus was a staple in both cooking and beauty rituals for its amazing health benefits. When founding the company, she returned to her roots and incorporated blue lotus into her skincare line.
The newest to the Purlisse line, the Blue Lotus collection, has two hero products: a blue lotus and seaweed treatment sheet mask along with a balancing moisturizing cream. Each item in the line is packed with skin healing ingredients like antioxidants, white tea, vitamin E and French marine plants, the live focuses on soothing, healing and aiding with anti-aging to improve skin's texture over time.
If you're a skin care buff with an affinity for texture, the Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer is great for everything from chapped hands and dry, irritated elbows to soothing skin on your face after washing or exfoliating. It's light enough to be a moisturizer, but it has the hydrating power of a cream; after applying it to my face, hands and feet, I even apply a thin layer to my lips before bed to wake up to soft, supple lips. Bye-Bye dry skin. Hello, hydration!
