The extracts of Rose, Stevia and the Opuntia fruit potentiate the collagen stimulating action of the Hibiscus flower and protect the skin from free radicals and premature aging. This formulation fights skin inflammation, impurities and is extremely soothing and calming.
The potent whole-plant extracts of this formula preserve the hundreds of different plant components, which make antioxidants such as natural vitamin C more potent than in its isolated or synthetic form.

The flowers of the Hibiscus have antioxidant properties that help to reduce inflammation on the skin caused by acne or other skin problems. They also inhibit elastin degradation, helping to maintain the skin’s elasticity and thereby offering anti-aging effects.

Here are some application ideas according to climate conditions, skin phototypes and skin alterations:
Applying 2-3 pumps of this antioxidant essence on the eyes is a refreshing morning ritual that decongests the eyelids and alleviates swollen and dry eyes. It is a truly pleasurable way to wake up your eyes and skin. For an extra wakeup call, store Velvet Hydration in the fridge and apply it cold.
We often wake up with fresh and luminous skin in the morning, but as the hours go by our face gets increasingly tired and expression lines are settling on the skin from periods with high concentration, prolonged hours of screen work and air conditioned or heated rooms.
Apply 2 pumps of Velvet Hydration, take 3 deep breaths and connect to your body. This microritual can be repeated every 1-2 hours and can have an extraordinarily positive impact on your skin as well as your stress levels during an intense work day. Your skin will look less tired and your energy levels will be higher at the end of the day.
In case of sensitive skin, apply 2-3 pumps of Velvet Hydration and massage 1-2 doses of the Midnight Rejuvenation oil into the damp skin.
This is also the ideal morning and evening treatment for sensitive, reactive skin, and skin with redness, inflammation, eczema or rosacea.
The purifying plant extracts of Velvet Hydration have antiinflammatory and antimicrobial properties and help to treat and purify acne throughout the day. Apply the essence every 2-3 hours to keep the skin hydrated and purified. Avoid touching the skin as this adds bacteria from your fingers to the inflamed areas.
Apply 2-3 pumps after the application of the makeup cream Perfecting Illumination. Velvet Hydration fixes the foundation and gives the skin a wonderful extra glow. Repeat this application as often as desired. This is a pro tip from our collaborating makeup artists.
The cold application of Velvet Hydration can be an extremely enjoyable and refreshing experience, especially in the warmer months or during hot flashes. Applying this antioxidant essence cold is also an ideal treatment in case of couperose and in case of broken and fragile capillaries.
The formulation of this organic face spray does not change when exposed to cold temperatures and can therefore be stored in the fridge.
Please note that most other LE PURE formulas should NOT be stored in the fridge as it can have a negative impact on their texture. To find out more, review our post about which formulas are best stored at room temperature.
After sun exposure and light sunburns apply Velvet Hydration to the affected areas and massage a small amount of the Smooth Addiction balm into the skin. After a few minutes the skin will be well nourished and any redness will start to fade.
Spring and fall often cause allergic reactions such as swollen eyes, sneezing and itching skin. Applying Velvet Hydration can calm the eyes and irritated skin.
While travelling on airplanes, the skin tends to dry out. The regular application of Velvet Hydration and the Smooth Addiction balm keeps the skin hydrated and protected.
If you have to wear a protective face mask for many hours, apply Velvet Hydration every 2-3 hours to purify and protect the skin from the bacteria that are accumulating on the inside of the mask, which touches your face.
