Why GO is Critical To Your Skin's Health
Long revered as a superfood, ginger can also deliver energy to your skin. Just as you exercise your heart and muscles, you should energize your skin. That's why you need GO, the first skin care treatment line specifically formulated to improve blood circulation.
Combining a powerful organic ginger essential oil with an organic ginger extract, GO is an effective energy booster for the skin.
But GO's greatness doesn't stop there. The unique ginger actives in GO naturally support bioavailability. Say what? In essence, ginger spurs each active ingredient in GO to work to its full potential.
And that's not all: ginger is a powerful antioxidant, which helps slow the aging process, improve your skin's elasticity and protect against environmental damage.
Incorporating a facial exercise program into your life will enhance the energy-boosting results of GO. Huh? We exercise our core, abs and glutes: why not our face? You can’t hide that under a pair of baggy sweats! Over time the muscles of the face elongate just like the muscles in your arms, thighs and buttocks. The elongation is the result of atrophy of the muscles and gravity. Even though we talk, sing and laugh, the muscles continue to sag. It’s only when the facial muscles are exercised do they begin to support your skin better. Beginning a facial exercise program to firm the face may seem daunting at first because the movements feel awkward. But after a few days of oooos and ahhhhs, you will become familiar with the movements and marvel that these simple exercises can produce a younger looking face! Discover a different facial exercise on each of our products. Try the full GO line to experience the ultimate benefits of our energy-boosting skin care program.
