Rosy cheeks and a natural shine that radiates youthful glow.
There are two ways you can achieve glowing skin. The most common is through a highlighter.
The other way, though it requires a little more effort is through skincare.
snowperk® Skin Studies
Source: snowperk® consumer survey conduced on April 2020
We surveyed 33 women on their top skin concerns. 45% stated that they often experience signs of stress and fatigue. 70% stated their biggest concern is skin dullness.
In our fast paced society, it is not easy to be in a stress-free environment.
But ensuring that we are stress-free and well-hydrated is crucial. Especially if achieving a radiant skin complexion that glows from within is your goal.
What prevents natural glowing skin?
Often, emotional and environmental stress disrupts your cell metabolism. This leads to visible signs of fatigue in skin cells*.
Insufficient skin hydration can also result in in duller-looking skin. Are you haggard and exhausted 24/7? Poor hydration can heavily compromise skin texture. And in the long run, damage your skin.
Some Skin-Deep Knowledge
Let us take a look at dull skin
Let’s learn about how our skin is able to produce its own natural radiance. Allowing our skin to have that glow that all of us desperately seek.
Dull skin is caused by the build-up of dead skin cells on the skin surface. The build-up causes your skin to be uneven. Which creates a rough and bumpy texture.
The uneven texture of dull skin causes light to deflect at random angles causing the skin to appear duller as less light is reflected. The presence of enlarged pores may also affect the intensity of which light is reflected.
Smooth skin, on the other hand, reflects light evenly.
Think of a mirror, where its smooth surface allows light to be reflected evenly making the skin look brighter with a more radiant glow.
Roses are Red, Stress Free and Energizing!
What would be better to supplement to our otherwise hectic lifestyle than an energy-boosting and stress-relieving skincare?
Roses have a long history of fighting stress induced aging and providing anti-dullness and anti-fatigue benefits.
Relax and Breathe in the Roses
Ever wondered why roses smell so good?
In traditional aromachology, rose essential oils are used to relax the soul, lower anxiety, and reduce insomnia.
These scented compounds from fresh rose extracts are proven to help elevate visible signs of stress, such as dark eye circles, dull and tired skin.*
Roses are such a great de-stressor that they are found in many skincare products that target skin radiance!

The Ancient Roses
Out of 4,000 rose species, there are 2 ‘Ancient Roses’ which possess the delicate and intense aroma.
They are Rosa Damascena (Damask Rose) found in Turkey and Rosa Centifolia (May Rose/Cabbage Rose) found in Grasse.
The unique Damask Rose extract, which is cultivated by local farmers in Turkey are handpicked in the early mornings, where their fragrance is the strongest.
They are then brought immediately to be processed to prevent fermentation and bad smell.
Only blooming for a single month in a whole year, it takes about 3,000 individual roses (approx. 10kg in weight) to produce 1kg of Damask Rose extract.
Its powerful anti-stress and anti-fatigue properties on skin of Damask Roses earns its title as a super Skin Glowing ingredient that plumps up dull skin with its strong relaxing fragrance.
As a fair-trade initiative, all farmers are local and the industry supports local farmers and implement several projects to enhance local families’ livelihoods, such as pre-financing and offering education and support for best farming practices.
Science behind the Damask Rose
Extracting from both its essential oil and floral water, the Damask rose is a revolutionary ingredient that incorporates all the scented molecules of the fresh Damask Rose petals.
