Although we’re excited for autumn and all the decadent trends that are coming with it, the season transition is prompting some unwanted reflections on the summer we’re bidding farewell. Unfinished D.I.Y.’s, road trips that never materialized and shopping sprees that did… we have plenty of regrets, but our biggest is forgetting to throw on some SPF every day. We’re looking to biochemist Lily Kruel’s unique skincare line, Lily Herbceuticals, to turn back the clock. The collection, which features everything from eye serums to face masks, employs the traditions of ancient Chinese herbal medicine with innovative technology. Kruel develops her products with natural ingredients such as goji berries and bamboo, using the same technique as traditional herbalists. Combining these ancient elements with her patent-pending 3D Tensor Technology that uses Nano techonology –yes, Nano technology- to ensure that active ingredients absorb into, rather than rest upon, the skin’s surface, Kruel’s line has got us feeling like we’ve discovered the fountain of youth. Get in on the action at lilyherbs.com and cross at least one of this summer’s regrets off your list.
