Wondrous Skin PM 1.7oz
The Nighttime Formula - with 2% melatonin...a deep, deep "beauty sleep" for your face! Some of my clients use Wondrous Skin PM as a sleep aid.
Melatonin is a hormone with many vital influences on health, including its skin-rejuvenating properties. It is made by the pineal gland at night in the presence of darkness. Published scientific studies have indicated that melatonin applied topically may well afford the skin all of the many health benefits associated with healthy sleep. As we age, melatonin production at night slows down, causing insomnia and the disruption inadequate sleep - hence, bags under the eyes and that haggard, dull complexion.
In a paper published in the medical journal ENDOCRINE - "On the Role of Melatonin in Skin Physiology and Pathology," the authors conclude: "Therefore, we propose that melatonin (synthesized locally or delivered topically)could counteract or buffer external (environmental)or internal stresses to preserve the biological integrity of the organ and to maintain its homeostasis. Furthermore, melatonin could have a role in protection against solar radiation or even in the management of skin diseases."
Another paper published in the journal DERMATOLOGY -"Suppression of UV-lnduced Erythema by Topical Treatment with Melatonin (N-Acetyl-5-Methoxytryptamine)"was addressing the effects of melatonin topically applied to the skin and its effects on burn from exposure to UV-rays. The authors conclude: " Topically applied melatonin has a clear-cut protective effect against UV-induced erythema. Free radical scavenging of UV-generated hydroxyl radicals and interference with the arachidonic acid metabolism are possible mechanisms of the melatonin action."
In the early stages of developing this melatonin-laced version of"Wondrous Skin," I used some human "guinea pigs." One of them stated on ordering her second jar that since she had run out, not only did she notice a difference in her skin, but she wasn't sleeping as well either. This make sense and is why I recommend this as a nighttime skin treatment only.
"Wondrous Skin PM" is identical to the original "Wondrous Skin"formula in every way other than the addition of melatonin.
"Wondrous Skin" is one of my most popular creations, each jar contains many, many sumptuous servings of nutritious food for your face (or hands, or feet, or body!). Actually entirely edible - though I don't recommend you eat it! - this exquisite creation boasts a nutrient content unrivaled in premium skin-care products I've evaluated, even those that sell for much more! Originally formulated for cosmetic use, this creamy invention has prevented and healed radiation burn, healed bed sores and softened surgery scars, leaving them nearly invisible! Safe and beneficial for the delicate eye area. Will NOT clog pores!

Chamomile, plantain, St. John's wort, lemon balm, Schizandra berry, rosehips, sage, green tea, watercress, rooibos, cilantro, skullcap, passionflower; flowers of jasmine, calendula, rose, lavender; red root and burdock root, parsley leaf, yarrow flowers; oils of avocado, Kukui nut, sweet almond, macadamia nut, Meadowfoam seed, Sea buckthorn, wheat germ, hazelnut, Tamanu, safflower, sunflower.

Suggested Use: Apply small amount to palms of hands and massage into clean face and neck before bed. Each ml in this 50-ml jar contains 1 mg of melatonin. The nightly dose of an oral melatonin supplement is anywhere from 1-10 mg, usually around 3 mg. So if you use a 3/4 tsp application of "Wondrous Skin PM" the melatonin content will be around 2-3 mg. The melatonin will first "hit" your skin, which is the point; internally taken or produced melatonin has a difficult time reaching the epidermal layers to effect real change when it comes to anti-aging and skin rejuvenation. BUT. It doesn't end there, some of this melatonin will be absorbed into your system, along with its other health benefits. This is why the treatment is not recommended for the daytime, when melatonin levels are naturally low.
So far, so good. It makes my skin soft and smooth and has lots of wonderful toxin free ingredients! Going to try the lotion next. Thank you.you.
I think I should have put my review here.... sorry It is above
Love, Love this night cream!! It's luscious, rich and so moisturizing but not greasy and the biggest bonus is that it puts me right to sleep! Highly recommend
I am mildly addicted to this lotion - I notice a difference in my skin and my sleep quality when I run out. It's excellent on my skin (which tends to be oily). I highly recommend it!
This is a wonderful product. My skin is already showing the beneficial effects. It doesn't clog my pores and just a small amount goes a long way.
In addition to a lovely and mild scent, this cream goes on quite smoothly and leaves my skin feeling soft and looking bright. I have very oily skin and this cream helps keep my oil production down by giving me great hydration with healthy oils. In addition, the melatonin really does help my sleep. The jar lasts a long time. I'm hooked and don't use any other night cream!
I have found Wondrous Skin PM to be a huge help in getting to sleep at night. I put it on my face and neck, and about 15-20 minutes later, I'm falling asleep! Would definitely recommend giving this stuff a try! (And the lotion in itself is wonderful, my skin loves it!)
