    Innovative Natural Korean Skin Care Line Uses Ancient Herbal Ingredients As a Game Changer

    Premium Korean skin care line uses 2,000 years of herbal medicinal wisdom

    to help people achieve phenomenal results at home

    If there is one thing people in the U.S. are after it is the fountain of youth and healthy, great-looking skin. In fact, the Global Cosmetic Industry reports that the skin care market in the country is expected to reach $11 billion by 2018. Everyone has a “skin story,” and millions of people are on an endless search for effective skin care products that truly work with anti-aging effects. What they may not realize is the power of natural ancient herbal ingredients that can be found in some Korean skincare products, and it’s what celebrity make-up artists are buzzing about.

    “Once you try our award-winning, herbal medicinal based natural Korean skin care products there is really no going back,” explains Lauren Ing, president of SMD Cosmetics International. “Women in South Korea are known for being selective consumers when it comes to skincare.  They truly demand the best. Our luxurious products have the most exclusive and highest quality, natural ingredients that produce amazing results.”

    The trend is referred to as K-beauty, and it’s all about the ingredients. SMD Cosmetics produces one of the most popular prestigious skin care lines in South Korea, formulated on over 2,000 years of herbal medicine wisdom. SMDcosmetics was the first Korean skin care line to offer a non-toxic, safe, natural, premium herbal medicinal-based line. Since launching in the U.S., SMD products are being used by top celebrity make-up artists who have discovered how powerful natural skincare can really be, and how your skin can transform with the right products.

    “It’s not only about great skin, but also giving people the confidence and knowledge of what they are putting on their skin,” explains Elizabeth Hoel-Chang, celebrity make-up artist from the television show ‘This is Us.’ “It’s a healthy, nutritional element to help preserve themselves. In a day and age of snake oil tonics and empty promises, the SMDCosmetic line of skin care is the miracle and truth people need to know about and have the ability to get it for themselves because they deserve it.”

    Their best selling product, the Saromae Quintessential Snail Serum Concentrate, is the perfected result of combining the precise formulation of natural ingredients and ancient herbal science. It contains 62% pure snail filtrate extract, which is the perfect balance of efficacy and texture. This cruelty-free, all-in-one formula reduces wrinkles, dullness, sun damage, hyper-pigmentation, and acne scarring. It also deeply hydrates, reverses signs of aging, and brightens the skin.

    SMD Cosmetics has founded groundbreaking products since it’s inception, over 20 years ago. The creation of the exclusive Inhyunjin anti-aging line is true labor of love with six rare ingredients that are processed nine times over fifty days. The process includes fermentation, resulting in powerful probiotics that preserve the product, naturally. Some of the secret ancient herbal ingredients that help make it so powerful include:

    • Niacinamide helps improve skin’s elasticity, dramatically enhances its barrier function, and helps minimize appearance of discolorations.
    • Barley malt yeast extract contains essential amino acids, enhances smooth skin, improves moisture, and revives skin’s healthy tone and texture.
    • Fermented ingredients, which help to improve the skin’s elasticity.
    • Goji berries for their anti-aging properties.
    • Wilfordii root extract, which offers antioxidant and anti-aging properties.
    • Mulberry, an herb that is an antioxidant that helps unclog pores, tones the skin, and adds moisture.
    • Red ginseng extract, this prized herbal root has rejuvenating effects and can help restore the skin’s moisture balance, signs of aging and hyperpigmentation.

    As an Asian, of course I love Korean Beauty. Especially like the good product like Saromae Radiance, the ultimate natural, innovative skin-brightening solution for even the most sensitive skin. Sarome Radiance is a breakthrough in Natural Brightening technology. Powered by ancient Asian herbal elements, this advanced, patented formula combinessafe, non-toxic, natural ingredients to help reduce: Hyperpigmentation, Sun damage, Age spots. Skin is visibly improved for a more luminous, glowing and beautiful you.

    The SMD Cosmetics’ luxurious skincare, and the meticulous detail that goes into making each product, is made with the VIP, elite clientele in mind. From every exclusive ingredient, the careful selection of the environmentally friendly glass bottles, to the top-fashion designers that helped craft the award-winning design and packaging, no detail is overlooked.  Available online, for more information visit the site at: www.smdcosmetics.com.

    @AmarteSkincare Wonder Cream and Mushroom Emollient

    The magical properties of mushrooms continue- and this time with exceeding skin care benefits. September is Mushroom Month- and now it’s more relevant than ever to celebrate the anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and protecting agents found in mushroom abundant skin care regimens. Mushrooms naturally boost the overall health and youth of your skin, reminding us that the mushroom’s positive uses stretch far beyond nutrition benefits!

    Vitamin D and anti-oxidant rich, mushrooms possess unique anti-aging properties, and protect the skin against fine lines and wrinkles to smooth out those pesky signs of aging. Beyond the ability to smooth complexions, tones and fine lines, mushrooms are a natural anti-inflammatory which calm and sooth irritating skin conditions like acne, rosacea, and eczema. Amarte, the premiere luxury skin care line that combines Eastern skin care philosophy with the power of Western dermatology, has recently launched Amarte Wonder Cream– a powerful anti-aging cream filled with a unique mushroom emollient that enhances immunity and shields skin from inflammatory triggers, irritation, environmental toxins and UV damage.

     Wonder Cream has a very slight citrus scent and absorbs very quickly into your skin. You can use it for under your makeup in your morning routine or like how I do it – at night right before I sleep. The easy airless pump distributes enough product in one push. I love the girly nature of the packaging and the pretty design makes me reach of it every time I open my vanity.  The ingredients are hand selected to make the perfect combination of beautiful silky skin!
