Origins Best Selling Mega Mushroom relief and resilience lotion
Great Skin? its all about the Shrooms…
Formulated with Dr Weil’s signature blend of soothing mushrooms, the Origins Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion helps calm skin sensitivity and irritation,provides deep hydration, and boosts skin resilience over time. The Mega-Mushroom formula is great for all skin types but particularly dry to weakened/ sensitive skin prone to redness. The major mushroom ingredients in this lotion are Reishi, Cordyceps and Fermented Chaga. For a few years I have been taking all three of these mushrooms in powdered form as a health food supplement in my daily smoothies. Which explains why I just had to try The Mega Mushroom treatment lotion on my face!
Reishi, also hailed as the ‘Mushroom of Immortality’. Used for over 7000 years in promoting health, vitality and longevity. Reishi is rich in Betaglucans, which help calm and soothe dry, itchy skin. The mushroom also possesses anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce swelling, redness in the skin, flakiness and decrease the chances of allergic reactions in people with sensitive skin while protecting the skin against harsh environmental damage.
Chaga, also known as the Birch mushroom, is known to be high in antioxidant enzymes that helps to keep your skin moisturised and to retain moisture throughout the day. It improves skin’s elasticity and radiance, thus reducing the signs of ageing. Chaga is also high in zinc, which works to reduce inflammation.
I train regularly at the gym and my cordyceps food supplement definitely gives me an energy boost and makes my recovery time shorter! Many athletes also credit cordyceps for giving them this energy boosts. Cordyceps helps boost cellular activity, including skin cell regeneration, healing, and inflammation, as well as collagen and elastin production. Amazing!
How to use the Product?
The mega-mushroom skin relief treatment lotion isn't exactly a lotion/ cream as the name on the bottle suggests. It has a thin, watery consistency (with the most amazing natural herbal spa smell I might add) can be used as a toner after cleansing your face the morning and evenings, or as a wet compress mask (A tissue saturated in the product and applied to your skin for a few minutes as you would a facial sheet mask). Mainly, I use this product as a hydrating toner after cleansing my face twice a day. Because I have dry/ combination sensitive skin this is perfect for my skin as it feels so hydrating and soothing after, and not stripping like many facial toners on the market that are too harsh for sensitive skin types like mine
