of the great secrets to this luxurious skincare line can be found in
the use of Pili and Moringa Oils that function as the "cornerstone of
select My Prime Anti-Aging Formulas. Rich in antioxidants and omega
fatty acids, these extraordinary botanical oils have historically been
used by Filipino women to achieve healthy, ageless skin." To read more
about Pili and Moringa oils click here.
Pili Oil is "indigenous to the fertile Bicol region of the Philippines, the
Canarium Ovatum (“Pili”) tree is the source of a superior restorative
oil that contains high concentrations of omega fatty acids and Vitamins A
and E. These age-defying ingredients allow Pili oil to rejuvenate the
skin by infusing it with deep hydration while also calming redness and
inflammation. Moreover, compared to olive oil, Pili oil contains more
beta-carotene (a known Vitamin A source), which encourages cell renewal
and improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Pili oil is gentle
enough for all skin types, and absorbs easily into the skin to impart a
light, youthful glow. To ensure the purity of the oil, local Filipino farmers grow the Pili
tree without fertilizers or pesticides. The farmers then manually
extract the oil from the pulp of the Pili fruit without using any
Moringa Oil is "widely cultivated in the Philippines, the Moringa Oleifera tree is
considered one of the most nutritious plants on the planet. Living up to
its reputation as a “miracle tree,” the Moringa tree is packed with
omega fatty acids and a multitude of antioxidants including Vitamins A,
C, and E. Nutritionally, it contains more Vitamin A than carrots, more
Vitamin C than oranges, more potassium than bananas, and more calcium
and protein than milk. Moringa oil is extracted from the seeds of the tree using
environmentally sustainable practices. Supercharged with anti-aging
benefits, this lightweight oil penetrates deep into the skin to enhance
proper cell growth, replenish hydration, and bolster the skin’s natural
defense against environmental attack. In addition, its high
concentration of Vitamin C makes Moringa oil a natural skin brightener
that helps even skin tone. Moringa oil is suitable for all skin types." (source)

My Skin Recovery Formula is a lightweight, skin-brightening treatment that targets skin damage while simultaneously imparting a healthy dewy glow. Among the Chief benefits:
Brightens and evens skin tone for a radiant look
Promotes skin firmness and resilience
Diminishes the appearance of age spots, acne marks, and wrinkles
Soothes redness and inflammation
Here's what I found after using it daily for over a month: Initially I only used Skin Recovery Formula at night, but when I saw how wonderful my skin looked at felt, I decided to use it both night and day. It really does brighten the skin- my skin has an unmistakable healthy radiant glow or luminosity to it- as though lit from within. There is an evenness of texture and tone to my skin that negates the necessity to wear a foundation. While I have no age spots or acne marks, I do have a few areas with sun damage, that have markedly diminished. I also don't have wrinkles to combat so much as expression lines, and their depth has undoubtedly been lessened. While I do not tend to have much redness, as a general rule, I did have the opportunity to put My's claims to the test about soothing redness and inflammation. At my recent yearly physical I had my doctor freeze off a mole on my forehead which left an inflamed red mess in its wake, as it began to heal it left behind tender pink skin that I didn't want to have scar or become hyperpigmented. Therefore, in addition to slathering on copious amounts of sunscreen, I applied Skin Recovery Formula 2-3/x a day, and now miraculously that area is nearly the color of the surrounding tissue.
This is a powerhouse peptide rich anti-aging serum that boosts microcirculation for a luminous effect. It effectively combats redness, age and sun spots, acne scars, and wrinkles, and gives skin a firm and even appearance. It feels wonderfully nourishing on the skin, and it sinks in very quickly. I really love the way that my skin looks and feels when I use this product, and I really could see the difference when I went from using it once a day to using it twice a day. The real shock was how quickly it healed the reddened inflamed tissue from my mole removal. It astounds me how vastly improved skincare products are as a result of all of the advanced technologies employed in their making, and My is certainly a prime example of just that. If you are looking for results, look no further.

nurturing the skin, but more importantly in nurturing the planet and
those who call it home. I absolutely believe in My, and in Tessa.
