Hydrating Elixirs

Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir Anti-Inflammatory • Step 3 Day & Night

  • Soothes • Renews Hydration • Balances Complexion • Facilitates Healthy Cell Regeneration

    The Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixirs, Step 3 in our 5-Step Facial Regimen, are developed as treatments to help hydrate, balance, and rejuvenate the skin. These original nourishing water-based products were developed in 1986 to reestablish water hydration.

    The hydrating nature of our elixirs include a complex botanical synergy specific to each skin type, along with an energetic gem elixir, chosen for its specific mineral qualities, all to assist water saturation.

    For use both day and night, these elixirs assist in renewing hydration deeper into the epidermis before oil-based products during the day, and alone at night to regulate while you sleep, without the use of serums, or night creams.

    The Anti-Inflammatory Elixir is a very gentle option for those with sensitivities or redness. The botanicals high in chamazulene and red marine algae soothe inflammation.

    Please note: Our Artemisia line has been renamed to Anti-Inflammatory. Don't worry, they're still the same amazing formulas.

  • Shake and spray 3-4 pumps over face and neck. Keep bottle approximately 10-12 inches from face.

    Day: After cleansing with Anti-Inflammatory Créme Cleanser, spray face and neck with Anti-Inflammatory Crystal Radiance, before applying Anti-Inflammatory Precious & Nourishing Facial Oil.

    Night: After cleansing, apply Nighttime Repair Serum, then spray face and neck with Crystal Radiance.

    *For those with crisis skin and hypersensitivities, we do not recommend using the Nighttime Repair Serum.

    Anti-Inflammatory Series

    The Anti-Inflammatory Series was originally created for hyper-sensitive, auto-immune or atopic skin inflammations such as eczema, seborrhea dermatitis, psoriasis, and other reactionary skin conditions.

    Over many years of creating active botanical preparations, we have encountered many that rash up at the mere smell of an essential oil. My daughter Taylor was the impetus of the Anti-Inflammatory Series, after a severe bout with impetigo caused by an infected mosquito bite at 12. Her legs would rash up if she sat on a friend’s lawn, using lip balm with essentials oils or makeup would instantly cause a reaction.

    I myself have suffered with such auto-immune skin responses. My personal journey is one that does not prescribe to conventional wisdom when it comes to my health. Our skin is a visible indicator of other systemic issues, so once those are addressed, and a solution adhered to, the skin will heal. Diet, stress, and overall mindful lifestyle is key.

    The standard recommendation of dermatologists is steroids and the elimination of perfumed products. Why not guide them holistically and prescribe an anti-inflammatory diet along with nutritional supplementation and lifestyle awareness, among other things?

    Crisis Skin Only

    It is because of the aforementioned, as well as each individual’s medical disposition, that we have changed our message of use. Because these types of auto-immune response skin conditions are becoming such an epidemic, we feel it is beyond our scope of care with simply a topical product. In other words, these conditions require systemic and holistic attention along with a lifestyle change.

    In addition, almost everyone thinks they are sensitive. I disagree, the original line is conducive and corrective for the majority of people and can give greater attention to the skin’s purity, hydration, and overall health than the anti-inflammatory is able to.

    Here are the categories and some of the key dispositions for using the Anti-Inflammatory Series and why everyone should have it on hand:

    • Sunburn • Windburn • Laser or other facial rejuvenation with redness and inflammation • Inflamed Rosacea • Micro-needling • Inflamed acne • Hot inflamed skin • Hives • After microdermabrasion or caustic peels • Alternate with Rosemary & Geranium Crème Cleanser [if Rosemary & Geranium is too strong for daily use]

  • Hydrosols Aqua: Artemisia Artemisia arborescens, Neroli Citrus aurantium • Aloe Vera Aloe barbadensis • Grape Vitis vinifera Alcohol • Gem Elixir Aqua • Red Marine Algae Chondrus crispus Extract • Proprietary Blend Essential Oils • Aventurine Mineral

Every Bit Helps

I'm really pleased that the folks at Benedetta have considered every step in the face care process! The Step 3 Crystal Hydrating Anti-Inflammatory Elixir is a great example. I use it in the regimen for my highly sensitive skin. It does a good job adding moisture while addressing redness and reactivity.
