Pamper And Palliate Stressed, Scarred Skin

If reading the labels of your beauty products isn't one of your top priorities, Blaire Kessler may just manage to change your mind. A survivor of breast cancer in her early thirties, she has strongly considered the possibility that common chemicals and carcinogens played a role in her disease, since genetics did not. Her unwillingness to use the same unnatural ingredients but desire to return her skin to its pre-diagnosis prettiness motivated her to launch her own line, Pristine Beauty.

Within the collection, presented with loads of kitschy old-Hollywood charm and not an ounce of self-pity, is an especially relevant array of products called Pristine Recovery, which includes the tongue-in-cheek-titled Hooray for Brallywood Butta. Although it's ideal for skin that's been scarred by surgery, it can work wonders for skin showing signs of stress of any sort.

Completely natural, vegan and paraben-free, this luscious lotion, with its dessert-like scent, feels like a pampering potion going on, but its results are truly that of a therapeutic formula. It helps restore decollete and bust-area skin to a healthier-feeling, lovelier-looking state, reducing the appearance of scars all the while.

No matter where you choose to apply this creamy concoction-face included-its blend of sunflower, citrus and sesame oils mingle with shea butter, rose hip, vitamin E and amino acids to soothe and heal skin that needs it, whether badly or barely.

And you'll help others heal when you buy Brallywood Butta, because a portion of the proceeds benefit breast cancer patients and survivors.
