IMAGE Skincare – Prevention +
It is difficult today to find quality skincare that isn’t filled with harmful ingredients. Just take a look at anything you have in your cabinet, and you will be hard-pressed to find a skincare item that isn’t filled with chemical ingredients you cannot pronounce. This was the same dilemma Janna Ronert found herself in back in 2003. Desperate to find a skincare line with safe and productive ingredients, she set out on a journey of her own creating a line of skincare creations with her husband (a board-certified plastic surgeon!), and they have introduced IMAGE Skincare. The Prevention + line has a variety of moisturizers with sunscreen and even tint to help keep skin supple and protected while covering blemishes. With its mineral based SPF, it is lightweight enough to wear under makeup and absorbs quickly for softer, smoother skin. Paraben free and great for sensitive skin, the Prevention + is perfect for all skin types and offers a healthier alternative to modern chemical filled products.
