I rub a succulent plant known as stone crop on my face and here’s why

Why Stone Crop?

Stone crop (sedum) is a succulent that is known for it’s many medicinal uses. However, it’s ability to survive in dry climates, while still retaining enough water to survive, makes it a special case when applied topically to the skin.

It’s GREAT for people with sensitive skin or pigmentation issues. But, it really works on ALL skin types because of its multi-functioning ways. Stone crop is capable of regenerating cells (which leads to skin renewal) and due to it’s antioxidant property, it keeps skin protected from the pollutants in our air.

When applied topically, stone crop helps to regenerate, firm, and moisturize the stressed skin. It works as an awesome toner, helping to reduce pigmentation and lighten dark spots. Basically, stone crop serum gives “looking old” a good fight!

Stone Crop Hydrating Mist

One of my FAVORITE ways to hydrate my skin, especially on a hot summer day is with this stuff! This hydrating and intensely-satisfying facial tonic is made from the beloved stone crop. In addition to the benefits of the stone crop, there is also salicylic acid in it, which also helps to remove surface skin impurities.

No wonder it’s a best seller. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love the smell of this stuff, too! There hasn’t been ONE single person that I’ve used it on who hasn’t just fallen in LOVE, and I can’t blame them because I did it too while working in a salon retailer on a photo shoot. #guiltyascharged #sorrynotsorry
