Hydrating Elixirs

Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir Ylang Ylang • Step 3 Day & Night

  • 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 will 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. Also perfect for travel to keep from dehydrating, especially on planes.

    This astringent elixir has a deep floral, exotic scent. It will help slow oil production and calm overactive skin, while reestablishing proper moisture balance.

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

    Day: After cleansing with Créme Cleanser, spray face and neck with Crystal Radiance, before applying Precious & Nourishing Facial Oil and Visibly Radiant Moisturizer.

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

  • The Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir series are authentic formulas based on water integration, saturation and balance. Created in 1986, these little sweeties would become the impetus for creating the Benedetta facial regimen launched 10 years later.

    My intention for the Crystal Radiance Elixirs was to aid the relief of dehydration, plaguing the majority of individuals and my clients. The key was to introduce cell hydration during sleep to regain balance when waking.

    Our biological clock and *circadian rhythms in the skin affect the biology of appearance and also have a profound effect on the absorption of products where hydration is a key factor. A recent study reveals the importance of the biological clock in the regeneration of skin stem cells. When this system is disrupted it results in premature tissue aging. When skin cells divide, in a process called proliferation, this process takes place during the day at various times, but is at least 30 times more rapid at night than during the day. The rate of water loss is 20% to 30% higher at night than during the day. Therefore, the skin’s regulation with regard to water loss and skin hydration, as well as skin ph and skin temperature, are controlled during sleeping hours.

    Enter… Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixirs

    Crystal Radiance is comprised of activated, bioavailable waters, to encourage the skin’s natural cell division, repair, and regeneration through hydration. The Crystal Radiance Elixirs where created with this biological clock reference in mind. Use during the DAY under Precious & Nourishing Antioxidant Oils to secure cell saturation and revitalization.

    Use alone at NIGHT after cleansing the skin with one of our Massage-In Crème Cleansers. Using no other facial products allows the skin to “breath” while securing much needed moisturizing hydration. After 29 years I can attest to the fact that those of us that refrain from night time cream based products, retain hydration at greater levels, and ultimately have gained a youthful glow and supple feel upon waking.

    *Circadian rhythms are physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle, responding primarily to light and darkness in an organism's environment. They are found in most living things, including animals, plants and many tiny microbes. The study of circadian rhythms is called chronobiology.

  • What is the difference in the Neroli and Yang-Yang elixir? They all say hydrating.

    Hi Allison!

    Great question! Our Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir series is designed to hydrate, balance, and rejuvenate, but each formulation is specific to a certain skin type: drier, most, oilier, and sensitive. Our Ylang Ylang elixir is more astringent because it is specific to oilier complexions. Your climate may also determine which formulation you should use; for instance, someone in a more humid climate who has drier skin may want to opt for our Rosemary Verbenone formulation rather than our Neroli one.

I enjoy the products because it’s very hot in Vacaville and I have very dry skin. The product feels refreshing on my face and it feels good to self care in these busy times. I recommend the hydrating elixir to anyone
