This Balm is loaded with herbs, oils , essential oils, and butters that are packed with vitamin C and D and iron. From time to time our complexions get dull,dry, in need of a little boost, which is what the brightening Balm is for. It hydrates, nourishes, and brings light back to tired complexions. I use it daily for more luminous skin. It also rebuilds tissue and collagen and sheds dead skin cells. This Balm can be used as a night Balm or during the day. After washing your face, apply liberally before going to bed. During sleep, our skin does it's best rebuilding work, so using this balm at night time will help you wake up to softer, more radiant skin.
