Who said skincare isn't romantic? Healthy beauty products inspired by nature and designed by a board-certified dermatologist are every skincare junkie’s dream. Whether you are celebrating St Valentine’s, St Galentine’s, or giving yourself a gift of self care, treat a skincare junkie in your life to a gift that keeps on giving! 

Dive into some of the latest and greatest skincare ingredients that your skincare junkie will love: Romantic Resveratrol, Soothing Cica, TLC Green Tea, and a Bouquet of Antioxidants! 


Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant found in red grapes, red wine and dark chocolate. Resveratrol belongs to a group of compounds called polyphenols, known for their health benefits, including anti-aging properties.  

Resveratrol is used in skincare for its anti-aging properties. It neutralizes free radicals, which helps prevent early aging and improves the appearance of early signs of aging by boosting collagen production. This enhances skin elasticity and firmness. Resveratrol is also known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, helping calm the skin and reduce redness and irritation. 

Resveratrol can be found in various skincare products like moisturizers, serums, masks, and creams. It is another versatile and powerful ingredient in skincare that is suitable for various skin types and concerns. 



Cica, scientifically known as Centella Asiatica, is an ancient plant with a rich history in traditional Asian medicine. It has been used for centuries in various cultures, including China, India and Africa for treating a range of ailments. In contemporary skincare, thanks to its powerful healing properties, cica is used to treat dryness, irritation, acne, and even wounds and burns. 

Dr. Murphy-Rose, a board-certified dermatologist and creator of Skincare Junkie, calls cIva a superstar ingredient. It is known for its antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces redness, contributes to skin healing and repair, and is great for those looking to calm and soothe irritated or inflamed skin. Cica is effective in stimulating collagen production, which is essential for maintaining youthful skin and preventing signs of premature aging. 

Cica helps improve the skin barrier function and is suitable for dry, acne-prone, and sensitive skin types. Cica is a trending skincare ingredient, but it’s more than that. It is a time-tested, versatile plant extract with proven benefits for various skin conditions, making it an excellent choice for a skincare junkie. 

Green Tea 

Green tea, derived from the Camellia sinensis plant, is celebrated for its medicinal and health benefits. It is a superfood that boasts a higher antioxidant content than regular black tea because it does not undergo the same fermentation process.  Green tea is another powerhouse anti-aging antioxidant with great bioavailability in the skin. 

Dr. Murphy-Rose calls green tea one of her favorite topical antioxidants. Due to its rich antioxidant profile and excellent tolerability, green tea has multiple skin benefits: 

  • It is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, making it effective against acne. Its polyphenols balance sebum production, tackling a primary cause of breakouts. 
  • It helps combat signs of aging — green tea compounds protect against free radicals and aid in skin repair. 
  • It is rich in vitamins A and E, which help keep the skin moisturized and healthy. 
  • Other benefits include brightening and evening skin tone, smoothing skin texture, and reducing redness. 

A super ingredient indeed! Green tea in skincare is a powerful skincare ingredient, used in different forms: moisturizers, serums, toners, face masks. It is suitable for most skin types. 

A Bouquet of Antioxidants  

Brighten Valentine's Day with a bouquet of antioxidants. Dr. Murphy-Rose created the first moisturizer on the market that combines 10 of the most powerful, clinically proven topical antioxidants in a non-comedogenic, safe formula that is free of fragrance and feels great - a perfect Valentine treat for your skin.
