Perricone MD Chia Serum...magic in a bottle.

Ever heard of chia seeds? This seed sounds really new and interesting to me. Upon some research, I've learned that chia is an edible seed that comes from a desert plant called Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family that grows abundantly in the country of Mexico. It is said that this small yet amazing seed was used as a staple food by the Indians of the south west and Mexico as well. Just a teaspoon full is good enough to sustain the energy of the Indians of the south west when going on a 24-hour march. 24-hour?!!! Wow, look how small this seed is...


This small little seed is also notable for its high oil content and it is the RICHEST vegetable source for Omega-3. And if you can well remember, omega-3 is an essential fatty acid which is vital for normal metabolism and has a lot of health benefits. 



So why am I talking about chia seeds? Well, it's because the chia oil found in chia seeds is the main component of this new revolutionary product from Perricone MD called Chia Serum. Chia Serum is a multi-tasking serum with rare extracts of chia oil and fat-soluble essential vitamins: vitamins A, C and E. It is scientifically-formulated to rapidly transform dull, dry skin to a visibly vibrant, glowing and healthy complexion. And because of the powers of chia oil, the Chia Serum also protects the skin from oxidative stress that accelerates the signs of aging. 

The application and usage of the Chia Serum is also very amazing and convenient. You can apply it directly after cleansing your face or after treatment or before make-up application or as a make-up finish. Talk about multi-tasking! Just rub 1-3 drops in between your palms and pat gently in circular motions over the entire face. You can even mix it with your favorite Perricone MD moisturizer. You can apply it several times a day, as often as you feel your skin needs. The bottle can easily be placed inside your cosmetic pouch and bring it with you the whole day!
