Clara’s New York

Clean and Natural Skin Care

It’s a sad fact of life that our skin changes as we age. What was once soft and supple with a youthful glow can become dull, dry, and tired. As the years have passed, I’ve noticed enlarged pores, fine lines, and age spots reflected back to me.

I know I can’t (nor do I want to) eradicate every negative change my skin shows. How exhausting would that be? But I do my best to support my skin’s health by carefully selecting what I put on it.

Harmful chemicals, preservatives, and additives can absorb through the skin, and I want nothing to do with these types of ingredients.

Clara’s New York follows this philosophy too. They use skin-loving formulations that do not contain harsh chemicals. My favorite offering of theirs is the Moisturizing Rosehip Oil Serum. After applying just a few drops, my face feels nourished, supple, and smooth.

I apply the serum in the morning before sunscreen, and it leaves a soft and dewy finish. A couple of times a week, I apply it at night to help with dullness, dryness, and irritation. My skin never feels greasy after applying this serum.

This best-selling product is 100 percent natural. The ingredients (rosehip oil, sunflower seed oil, jojoba seed oil, vitamin E, and others) offer essential fatty acids to enrich all skin types with moisture.

This serum contains no sulfates, parabens, or alcohol. The product is non-comedogenic, dermatologist tested for safety, and safe for sensitive skin.

1 fl.oz bottle retails for $25.
