Elixir Of Youth

Previously, I was spending $89.00 plus shipping on 1.75 ounces of a face lotion that promised results it never delivered. It was a dermatologist recommended face lotion that was supposed to fix my problem skin, but it was making it worse. I broke out the first day after applying it and I had mini acne breakouts after two weeks of use.

I remember waking up one morning and freaking out when I saw my high school acne
face staring back at me in the mirror. Hello puberty...again! I had almost forgotten what those dreaded giant red bumps looked like, and of course, there is a giant one on the tip of my nose, proudly getting bigger by the minute with every pump of blood from my freaking out heart.

The new lotion that was supposed to be my savior, was making my skin oily and then dry, and my smile lines, fine lines, and wrinkles seemed to be getting worse instead of better. However, the real reason I stopped using it, was when I turned it over and read the list of chemicals in it. I had had just about enough of the “helpful” products that these big companies were selling me. I decided to go old school, did some research, tested some different formulas, and soon I had created a Shoogie elixir that worked miracles for my skin. I haven’t looked back since.

The other day at the pool, I found out just how well the Shoogie moisturizing and clearing elixir was working. One of my friends asked me if I had recently gotten Botox, and if so, who was my doctor. At first I was taken back, but then I realized that something noticeable was happening. As much as I would like to hoard this amazing formula to myself forever, the real reason I haven’t put it out on the Shoogie product line yet because I am still testing the formula through the season changes to make sure it performs well throughout the whole year, but if anyone else would like to be a test dummy with me and the family, I will take you on.

It has been about 3 months now, and I have noticed a significant change in the way my skin looks and feels. I am definitely attributing it to the amazing ingredients that are inside the elixir, because that is the only thing I have changed in my beauty and health regimen. I liked the results I was getting on my face and neck so much, that I started using it on my belly where I have my “tiger stripes” from my pregnancies and I also spray it on my husband’s back before he goes to bed to clear up his blemishes. Here is a list of some of the ingredients in the elixir and what jobs they perform.

Coffee Bean Oil:
Coffee is one of the richest sources of antioxidants which protects our skin against free radicals that damage and age us. The caffeine in coffee stimulates the skin and improves blood flow to the face, which is perfect for healthy cell turnover that makes us look fresh, radiant and bright. Caffeine is considered a vasodilator, which means it tightens and firms the skin, too! It increases the production of collagen and elastin. The caffeine in coffee minimizes fine lines and protects against the loss of moisture making it the ideal weapon for anti-aging. And if you have sun burned or sun damaged skin, coffee helps reverse the damage of UV rays, too!

Geranium Oil:

Geranium oil is now used to treat acne and reduce inflammation. It is also a wrinkle reducer! Because geranium oil is an astringent, it induces contractions in several parts of the body. It has the power to minimize the look of wrinkles because it tightens facial skin and slows down the effects of aging.

Red Raspberry Seed Oil:

The oil from the seeds is high in vitamin A and essential fatty acids, both key ingredients in skin care. Linoleic, alpha linolenic, and oleic acids all help reduce the damaging effects of free radicals on the skin, while replenishing moisture. The oil also contains vitamin E, which helps to repair and condition skin and helps prevent rash, eczema, and other skin lesions, with superior anti-inflammatory properties. Raspberry seed oil also showed the potential to act as a broad-spectrum UV-shield, helping to protect skin from the damaging rays of the sun. In fact, in one study on the oil, researchers indicated that raspberry seed oil can be used as a sunscreen, in creams for the prevention of skin irritations.

Argan Oil:
Argan oil is rich with vitamin A and vitamin E. However, Argan oil is also packed with anti-oxidants, Omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid. Research shows that when applied to skin, it eases inflammation while moisturizing the skin. When applied externally, trocopherol from the vitamin E, helps to boost cell production while promoting healthy skin and hair.

Great news for anyone that is suffering from acne – argan oil has been proven to reduce sebum levels in individuals with oily skin! Argan oil can also help prevent stretch marks by improving the elasticity of the skin.

Vitamin E oil:
Vitamin E, gamma tocotrienol, has the ability to reverse damage done by UVB radiation to some extent. Our skin ages prematurely because of damage done to harmful solar radiation, and the free radicals in our environment. Vitamin E reduces the damage to skin framework because of both these factors.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil:
Removes all impurities from the pores preventing inflammation and blackheads.
The oil hydrates the skin and retains the moisture as it nourishes the skin with vitamins and fatty acids. It can also treat acne, fungal diseases, dermatitis and eczema. Due to the fatty acids, such as ricinoleic acid (which has anti-inflammatory properties), undecylenic acids and others, and ash from the roasting process, black castor oil has a strong healing power. Black castor oil may calm down inflammation, it also kills bacteria and fungi and is applied for skin moles, warts and eczema. Moreover, one of Jamaican black castor oil benefits is its ability to heal wounds and cuts.

Jojoba Oil:
Is actually a liquid plant wax and has been used for treating sores, bruises, acne, psoriasis, sunburn and chapped skin. It’s also used by people who are balding because it encourages hair regrowth. Because jojoba is an emollient, it soothes the skin and unclogs hair follicles.

Jojoba oil plays the role of sebum and moisturizes our skin and hair when our body stops doing it naturally, it removes the sticky buildup and excess oil our body makes while keeping your oil levels balanced. That makes it a strong natural treatment for eczema as well as acne, plus it is well suited for other dry-skin conditions. Jojoba oil is an emollient which moisturizes our skin and prevents irritations, or scaly and rough patches. Dry skin is caused by a loss of water in the upper layer of the skin. Jojoba oil works by forming an oily layer on the top of the skin that traps water in the skin. It also removes makeup safely.

Sweet Almond Oil:

Antioxidative properties, sweet almond oil is known for protecting skin against UV radiation damage and keeping skin soft and supple. A 2007 study found it to both prevent initial UV damage and slow down the effects of UV damage after it happened. Almond oil has a light texture and easily absorbs into skin. It can be used to gently dislodge debris from deep within skin pores and follicles, and also may help prevent future acne because of its vitamin A content. It is a natural remedy for eczema and psoriasis.

Rose hip Seed Oil:
Rose hip oil is harvested from the seeds of rose bushes predominately grown in Chile, and is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin, all while reducing scars and fine lines. It protects the skin and increases cell turnover because it contains vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin D and B-carotene, a form of vitamin A, and which are all antioxidants that help fight free radicals.

Rosehip oil’s healing properties are due to its chemical structure. It’s rich in essential fatty acids, but more specifically oleic, palmitic, linoleic and gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Rosehip oil contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (vitamin F), also known as an essential fatty acid (EFA), and when absorbed through the skin, these fatty acids convert to prostaglandins (PGE), which are involved in cellular membrane and tissue regeneration.

Specifically, it is that regeneration that can provide anti-aging benefits. It is particularly high in vitamin C, making it one of the richest plant sources for the skin and another reason why rosehip oil is a great choice.

Witch Hazel:
American Indians relied on it for fighting swelling, sores and infections.
Thanks to its astringent properties, witch hazel is one of the most effective natural acne treatments known to man, and it’s even been shown to protect against skin cancer! Its strong antioxidant and astringent properties are perfect for killing bacteria that lives within skin’s pores, stopping cellular damage that can lead to skin cancer, preventing signs of aging, and speeding up healing.

Aloe Vera:
Aloe leaves contain a plethora of antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E that can help improve the skin's natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated.  It acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish its moisture. Because of its nutritional qualities and antioxidant properties, the skin heals quicker.

Aloe vera gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Giberellin in aloe vera acts as a growth hormone stimulating the growth of new cells. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring.

Grapefruit Seed Extract:
Grapefruit seed extract possesses antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.

Citric Acid:
Citric acid is proven to have amazing benefits for improving the texture of skin and lightening its tone. The juices of citrus fruits are acidic in nature due to the citric acid and have bleaching characteristics which help in restricting melanin production and reducing blemishes. Additionally, this acid is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) exfoliates the skin, helping to loosen the damaged layers of skin. As a result, healthier, younger skin underneath is exposed. The antioxidants in citric acid help repair skin, and fortify blood vessels.
