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.

Bioactive ingredients… Let’s talk about what makes skincare WORK!!!

Why does Skincare have to be so complicated?

All of us want beautiful and healthy skin. We want that youthful radiance to last us for years to come. And most of us continue to fall for marketing gimmicks that tell us THIS is the holy grail product so buy me now!! So we do!! Speaking from experience, it was the constant let down that I got from product after product that led me into my career field of aesthetic dermatology and aesthetics.

They say you are what you eat, but does that really hold true? The answer, in large part, is yes!!  There are many things that can give us beautiful skin. Now, some we cannot control (hello genetics!), but there are others that we can and that includes our skin, which is the largest organ of our body!! We all want that glowing and beautiful skin, and with the addition of foods into your diet that are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, you will be taking an easy first step in bringing your beautiful complexion out.
