When it comes to skincare, the essentials are simple: Eat well, drink lots of water, move and rest enough, and your skin is likely to look its best. A little extra nutrition for the skin never hurts, though, and this plant-based formula from Desert Essence is like a nutrient-packed smoothie for your face. It contains a triple threat to the oxidizing effects of free radicals: antioxidant-rich pomegranate extract, vitamin E extract and COQ10, a cellular enzyme that’s key to cell longevity. Vitamin E is a time-tested wrinkle smoother, and the pomegranate-fruit acids help even out skin tone and texture. No chemical yuck, no animal testing or ingredients, just a healthy nutritional boost for your face at a price that’s easy to swallow, especially when compared with most age-reversal products at the cosmetics counter.
