CoValence Active Lights Up Moisturizer

Just as a ray of light is most meaningful after an extended period of darkness, CoValence’s Ray of Light puts the reverse on years of skin care neglect. One of Ray of Light’s brilliant ingredients is called the Sea Daffodil, which is a gorgeous white flower that blooms at dusk on the Greek island of Crete. According to CoValence, this “steel magnolia-type” flower has survived centuries of harsh elements, yet it still survives… and it is those survival methods that help to brighten skin. Along with Sea Daffodil, Ray of Light has a number of brighteners that fight a multitude of functions that cause premature aging of the skin. CoValence says that in addition to brightening, the actives inhibit tyrosinase activity, prevent damage caused by the environment and protect nuclear and mitochondria DNA. The company says skin will look younger and more luminous after using Ray of Light for just five days. But the more often it’s applied, the more beautiful skin will become.
