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.

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.

Day & Night: Use morning and night in accordance with the Benedetta Facial Regimen. Follow with Steps 2 through 5.
Apply a quarter size of cleanser to dry skin. Massage over the entire face and neck in a circular fashion until créme has disappeared and an oily film remains.
Pay attention to areas of congestion and bumpy skin, massaging these areas longer. Leave on for 1-3 minutes for therapeutic treatment. Rinse with a wet washcloth or leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes for a gentle exfoliation treatment.May be used as a spot treatment at night for blemishes that have not broken through the skin (such as fatty deposits and blackheads) and to help lighten age spots over time.There is no need to use a separate toner as the cleansing and toning process is complete after the use of this product.
OMR: This technique is used to inhibit the stretching and pulling of the skin. This simple yet effective procedure should be practiced whenever applying product below the eyebrows.
Open mouth to a comfortable position while pressing lips over teeth. The wider the mouth is opened, the more resistance will be felt. Do not overdo this or open to a point of discomfort. Massage is done using firm, continuous pressure.
This authentic formula is based on my experience of creating customized aromatherapeutic treatments for my clients. The common protocol for the first stage of the facial treatment was the same for most. The goal was to stimulate circulation, move the lymph, and allow purification at deeper layers while moving waste through the skin and back into the bloodstream. This relatively simple procedure using fatty oils and essentials — no soap or surface cleansers — now needed to be a relatively universal treatment. The challenge was to design a preparation that was capable of creating similar, if not better, results for home use, and get it stabilized in a bottle without a large percentage of petrochemicals and adulterants.
Taking 3 years to perfect, the Rosemary & Geranium Purifying/Massage-in Crème Cleanser is the foundation to the Benedetta Facial Regimen. Used by professional estheticians in the first and crucial step to performing the Benedetta Holistic Facial, sometimes massaged into the skin for as long as 40 minutes.
The Rosemary & Geranium Crème Cleanser has surpassed what I set out to accomplish in a cleanser. After more than 20 years in the marketplace, this remarkable, authentic preparation has far surpassed expectations.
