Barbara Close Founder/CEO of Naturopathica
Naturopathica founder, Barbara Close, enlightens us on how her products lead mommies-to-be & all women to naturally beautiful skin. Check out her products in A Pea in the Pod & at our Edamame Spas!
Naturopathica has been the trusted destination for 100% skin-loving, high performance products and services since I founded our Healing Arts Center & Spa in 1995. That’s because every ingredient in my formulas works in harmony with the skin’s natural processes and never causes irritation, so skin can focus on looking younger and feeling healthier.
As a clinical esthetician, I’ve seen that many women are dismayed to discover that their skin changes drastically during pregnancy and new conditions emerge, such as hyperpigmentation. My goal is it to create safe skin care solutions with products that deliver real results. Here is my recommendation for this concern:
According to The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, up to 70 percent of pregnant women develop melisma, or hyperpigmentation due to increased hormone levels. Many of the treatments for this condition involve harsh, irritating topical solutions such as bleaching creams that are not only unsafe during pregnancy, but also may lead to premature aging.
The Naturopathica Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum addresses hyperpigmentation safely and effectively with 15% L-Ascorbic Acid, a pure and potent antioxidant that helps reduce redness, fade dark spots and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In clinical trials, the Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum showed significant and continuous improvement in the appearance of skin radiance, smoothness, firmness and fine lines and wrinkles.
Try this & other Naturopathica products to see personal results and enter now through Friday, 5/16 to win a gift set of Naturopathica favorites in partnership with A Pea in the Pod (over $300 value). This curated assortment of Naturopathica 100% skin-loving favorites is safe and efficacious for use during and post-pregnancy.
