Every day I look in the mirror I see the signs of my mother, and her mother emerging in my skin and face. Expressions I make are so clearly indicative of those who came before me, and it startles me from time to time, to see their stories in my face. Their stories tell of a time of poor lifestyle choices in nicotine and alcohol, and synthetic cosmetic fillers. Their stories speak to solvents and sacrifice to cover imperfections and scars from a more difficult time in history. Their stories speak to sun damage, and aging long before their time.
I do not live their stories, however. I live my own, and I want my face and my skin to tell the story of my journey. My journey in natural choices in health and wellness. I want my skin to tell a story of a quality of life that is steeped in natural, mineral- based cosmetics, and plant based hygiene, that accentuates my beauty. I want my story to reflect a good diet and lifestyle choices. I want my story to be soft aging and graceful acceptance of the lessons I have learned and the impact I have had, while emitting the joy and gratitude for this life most blessed.
Then I discovered Cannatera. Developed by a remarkable young woman who sees beauty the same way I do; as a natural, healthy, reflection of the woman within, Amy K took her beauty background into a lab and formulated a ground-breaking, anti-aging skin care line that is likely to shake up the beauty industry.
Made with phyto-cannabinoid rich extracts, chalked full of regenerating active molecules, Cannatera is the perfect blend of skincare and plant science for results you can see and feel, without the synthetics and fillers that are so damaging to the skin and cause premature aging.
How does the science work exactly? When hemp oil is applied topically, it is absorbed directly through the skin. Present in the composite of our skin cells lies cannabinoid receptors. A topical delivery of Cannatera through any number of the brand’s products, delivers the compounds of the plant extract directly to the skin to go to work. without having to pass through the blood stream first.
CBD as an antioxidant is even more powerful than Vitamin C, E, A, or omega 3 fatty acids, which are all also present in hemp oil, making phyto-cannabinoid rich oil a good source for antioxidants. Protecting the skin from free radicals, like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants, is critical to having younger looking skin. Free radicals in the atmosphere cause fine lines and wrinkles; antioxidants found in the hemp extract protect our bodies from the damage of these free radicals, including fighting the effects of aging.
Additionally, with the changes we see in diet and exercise, as well as the side effects of any given medication, from birth control to hormone therapy, we are always prone to increased oil production and acne. CBD, the Cannatera Skincare line’s base compound, can be used to affect the output of oils in the skin and hair. Specifically, the CBD used in the products inhibits the lipid production in skin cells, making it an effective preventative option for acne, while at the same time, during an outbreak, the anti-inflammatory properties of the CBD in Cannatera’s skincare, can also control the other effects of acne. The best part is Cannatera’s use of CBD in preventative care, can act as an antibacterial agent, decreasing the likelihood of further infection spreading.
Cannatera’s 3 step skincare system is easy, and simple. It has no harsh odors, no perfumes and no dyes. It smells fresh and clean and goes on easily, while absorbing quickly, and I now swear by it!
I am proud of my age, and I am proud of how I reflect my age to the world around me, naturally and beautifully, and I will age gracefully with Cannatera every step of the way. This is not my mother’s face, it is mine; a story I will tell with every smile, wink, tear, and laugh…naturally.
