Mikel Kristi Skincare Cosmeceutical ingredient highlight - Witch Hazel, Hamamelis Virginiana shrub, bark, extract

  

Potent, Plant Based Ingredients

At Mikel Kristi, we believe in using ingredients that have been proven to not only nurture, but that also greatly enhance the health of your skin and radiance of your complexion. Witch Hazel is one of these amazing ingredients.  

Witch Hazel comes from the native North American plant, Hamamelis Virginiana, and has long been used for its benefits to the skin and many other internal ailments. The leaves and bark of the plant are used to make ointments, teas, and extracts. These extracts are used in skincare products for their astringent and anti-inflammatory benefits. Witch hazel contains tannins which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help protect and calm skin.  The astringent nature of this ingredient has also been shown to contract and tighten pores. 


Mikel Kristi Bio Peptide Revitalizing Serum uses Witch Hazel in conjunction with peptides to give your skin that “Photoshop” look. With the collagen building support of the peptides, and the astringent nature of Witch Hazel, clients fall in love with the visibly noticeable pore refinement and smoother skin. Add Bio Peptide Revitalizing Serum to your skin care regimen, twice daily,  for age defying benefits.

C Radiance Moisturizer 15ml, 30ml 50ml airless pump bottles
We also use this powerful ingredient in our newest product, C Radiance Moisturizer. Witch Hazel, along with 3 active forms of vitamin C, deliver potent antioxidant properties that help protect your skin from environmental stressors. This lightweight silky moisturizer has become one of my favorite products for defying the signs of aging. 

 

Witch Hazel is a powerfully effective, plant-based ingredient that enhances the efficacy of Mikel Kristi Skincare and helps deliver impressive results.

Book Release - Your Beauty Advocate by Christy Hall

Advocate:A person who speaks or writes in support or defense of a person, and/or cause.

For all the ways to describe who I am and what I do, the word advocate feels the most right. I am not just a PA-C, injector, skincare formulator, and entrepreneur. Those are simply the tools I use to carry out my life’s passion. My mission is to help educate people on the power they have to work with aging on a deep and impactful level, and to help my clients see themselves in a new light that they have control over. The truth is that too many people waste money and sanity on products and procedures that either don’t work, or don’t deliver on the intended outcome. And it's only by education on the structure of the skin, and how aging takes place in the body, that we can intelligently choose what to do when.

An Introduction To Cosmeceuticals
So, you may ask, “Why don’t all skin products work?”  Many of us have bought the newest trendy product that we have read about in a beauty magazine or seen on TV, used it for a few weeks, see no results, and then put it in the cabinet never to be touched again. The fact is that YOU WANT TO SEE RESULTS!  You want your skin to look and feel healthier and younger. However, many beauty products fall short because those amazing “active ingredients” that they advertise aren’t delivered to the right place in the skin, or in the right form to be effective.

Skin Type Myth Busted
Skin Type Myth Busted

by Christy Hall February 03, 2020

Many companies in the business of “Big Beauty” have capitalized on the notion of a customized skincare plan based on your particular skin type. I think we have all taken the quiz, received the result, and went straight to the cash register confident that this custom regimen would be the answer to our skin woes. Cut to three months later, and we are back at a different register, listening to different set of promises … and lather, rinse, repeat.

It really doesn’t matter what “skin type” you have. The four basic daily needs for skin health and anti-aging do not change
