What: The anti-aging elixir with major X factor: pure, omega-rich Marula Oil.
Who: All skin types.
Why it works: An age-old East African beauty secret, this does-it-all oil comes from the fruit of the Marula tree and is legendary for its antiaging powers. Thanks to its record levels of antioxidants (yes, it has even more than argan oil), Marula Oil helps protect skin against environmental stressors and free radicals that can lead to wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging. It also helps treat existing wrinkles with tocopherol (vitamin E), tochotrienol, phenolic compounds and flavinoids. Plus, loads of fatty acids help the oil absorb deeply and rapidly to boost hydration and moisture retention—yet it always leaves skin looking beautifully matte, never greasy. Other benefits include: controlling oil, warding off bacteria that cause breakouts, calming irritation, reducing redness and diminishing the appearance of scars. Use it alone as an antiaging moisturizer, add it to other products to boost their benefits, smooth it over over-exposed skin for soothing and healing effects, or use it as a makeup primer to create an even, hydrated canvas.
