Valentinue's Smiles&Kisses, from Big River Silk Skincare

by George Woodbury Jr. M.D. (02/13/2022)

A radiant smile is a great way to build relationships with your loved ones. As a Board-certified Memphis Dermatologist and President of Big River Silk Skincare, helping you and your family smile and kiss well for Valentine’s Day February 14th is my goal.

So let’s take a look at two of Bog River Silk Skincare’s star kiss-enhancers and smile-makers: HypoShea Moisturizer Cream and GlycoShea Facial and Neck Cream:

HypoShea Moisturizer Cream is what’s called an organic emulsion, with the lubricating qualities of Refined Shea Butter and the beauty of natural water from the Memphis Sands. It’s a special moisturizer best applied liberally for the red part of your lips, what’s called the vermillion border. Best of all, HypoShea is free of added perfumes, dyes, propylene glycol, acids, and sulfates.

HypoShea Moisturizer Cream: 1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz: $39.95.

But what about the skin around your upper and lower lips? What about your chin? What can work against dryness, cracking, fissuring, and wrinkling?

Our Dermatologists at Big River Silk Skincare developed GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream especially for the areas around the red part of your lips. It blends the beauty of Shea Butter with the skin-smoothing effects of a chemical called Glycolic Acid, an AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acid, originally discovered in sugarcane and pineapple. GlycoShea is convenient for use as a night cream, and best of all, being designed by Dermatologists, it’s sulfate-free, dye-free, and fragrance-free.

GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream could be called an “exfoliating” moisturizer, because it helps the outer layer of the skin, the Epidermis, to more effectively release older, drier, tougher skin cells, making it into an anti-wrinkle cream, or a best under eyes cream. So it has both the beauty of a natural moisturizer while also working against wrinkles

GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream: 1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz: $179.95.
