DUSK TO DAWN Overnight Treatment Powder
Dusk to Dawn... overnight mineral treatment (previously known as "Nocturne"from Aromaleighv.1.)
We've very slightly reworked the formula, so if you were a former Nocturne user, a sample is recommended.
A mineral formula with skin-nourishing vitamins, herbal extracts and amino-acid rich silk powder. Our formula doesn't contain minerals that just make your skin "look" good... it contains ingredients that will make your skin ACT better. Active ingredients that provide beneficial purpose for your skin's wellbeing.
Apply a thin layer of Dusk to Dawn before bedtime, and throughout the night, your own skin activates the host of skin-loving and nurturing ingredients.
SHADE: Dusk to Dawn original is a close match for the shade called "Clear" in an alternate brand's night time treatment. It is also available in a slightly deeper shade, Dusk to Dawn II.
How to use: Before bedtime, apply a thin layer to clean skin with a flocked sponge. If you wish to use a basic moisturizer, make sure that it is well-absorbed first. (I realize that many of you will wish to continue using your moisturizer or facial oils at bedtime... other night-time mineral treatments recommend that you forego your moisturizer altogether. I don't feel that this is possible for all skintypes... or you may need to adjust your routine as you transition to this product. As the saying goes, "Your own mileage may vary". You may find you need to continue with moisturization, you may find you don't. It depends entirely on your own skintype, your age, the humidity of the environment in your home, etc...
We suggest that this be applied with a flocked sponge. We find that this offers the best mode of application due to the formulation of the product.

About the Ingredients:
Mineral concentrate powdercontains 72 micro and macro minerals. It is extracted from untouched mineral deposits from the earth estimated to have been formed during the Triassic-Jurassic periods, approximately 150 to 200 million years ago. It is the most complete source of naturally occurring micronutrients known to exist. Mineral concentrate increases cell turnover, is anti-inflammatory and nourishing to the skin. It brings "Mineral Makeup" to a new level... a level in which your minerals are in truly rare form.
Silk powder benefits your skin with 18 amino acids and is a natural moisture balancing product. Silk can absorb or release moisture as temperature or humidity changes.
Zinc oxide is a natural anti-inflammatory.
Ascorbic Acid, or Vitamin C naturally stimulates your skin's collagen growth, brightens your skintone, increases cellular turnover, and aids in the reduction of fine lines.
Ectoin(TM) is a highly advanced anti-aging ingredient that functions on multiple levels as a natural stress defense and moisture barrier for your skin. It protects the skin's immune defenses.
Emblica fruit extract has intense natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and is a natural skin brightener.
Green tea extract is a natural antioxidant.
Spherical silica is added to this formula to assist in smooth application. Titanium dioxide and iron oxides are in minute amounts as part of the coloration of the formula.
