Orange tinted skin might be one of our worst nightmares. Remember that time you did an at-home self-tanner? Yeah, me either! Not to worry, though, you won't be frantically doing a google search for DIY fixes when using our new product, 2-in-1 Body Polisher. A special ingredient in our upcoming body polisher, Astaxanthin, is quite eye-catching with its orange appearance, but it won't stain your skin orange.
Do you care what ingredients are in your skincare products? We do! In a world where we have to google ingredients that we can't even pronounce, we want to do the hard work for you and explain what ingredients are in our products. At Flaunt Body, we're committed to providing products for our customers with clean and vegan ingredients that are healthy for you and the environment. Astaxanthin made our list.
What is Astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin is a pigment that belongs to a group of chemicals called keto-carotenoids. It occurs naturally in algae, and if we want to get fancy here, its primary natural source is Haematococcus Pluvialis. Cool fact: flamingos are born grey, and due to their diet of shrimp and algae (that have Astaxanthin), they get their bright pink feathers.
Why You Want Astaxanthin
It's one of nature's most powerful antioxidants that helps us achieve healthy, young-looking skin by protecting against free radicals and sun damage. It repairs DNA damage from cells exposed to UV radiation, which brings an additional benefit of fending off wrinkles.
Astaxanthin has anti-inflammatory properties and helps resolve one of our biggest hair removal concerns by reducing inflammation. It maintains our skin's moisture and is ideal for all skin types, including the most sensitive.
How to use Astaxanthin
Skincare products containing Astaxanthin are safe for use in the morning and at night. It is not uncommon to pair it with other potent antioxidants like vitamin C or E. In our case, our body polisher that has Astaxanthin is ideal for pre and post hair removal exfoliation or anytime you want to reduce ingrown hairs, reduce scarring, and want radiant, healthy skin.
