Make your face glow with Ursa Major Clear, Healthy Skin Kit

make your face glow with ursa major clear healthy skin kit
The skin is the largest organ in your body, so we need to take the best care of it that we can. We shouldn’t let the sun’s harmful rays hit our skin, unless we want a leathery texture, annoying spots or the other countless things that can happen to our skin. We also need to give it the nutrients it needs.

The folks at Ursa Major, an organic grooming line, created the brand “to provide a healthy and highly effective skin care solution that’s also a real pleasure to use – a robust, natural alternative to the bland, toxin-laden products that pervade today’s marketplace.” Everything is 99 to 100 percent natural, cleanly processed, and has zero toxins.

They also use nature’s finest ingredients to produce grooming products that nourish your skin, ingredients that they refer to as “super natural.” You can have clear, healthy skin in three-and-a-half simple steps. First, start out by lathering your face up with the foaming gel cleanser with a natural brightening complex. Next, spray on the 4-in-1 essential face tonic to clean, exfoliate, soothe, and hydrate your skin. Afterwards, use the fortifying face balm to moisturize and prevent those pesky wrinkles. When you’re on the go pack up the essential face wipes — single-use versions of the 4-in-1 essential face tonic to freshen up while you’re on the move.

If you’re interested in seeing just how well the three-and-a-half steps work for you, Ursa Major made the perfect trial kit. The Clear, Healthy Skin Kit is a two-week supply of all of the products, so you can decide if you’ll want to go full sized — and we’re pretty sure you will — or, if you need trial sizes when you’re going a trip half way across the world. That way you’ll have everything you need to keep your skin looking fresh, healthy and youthful.

When you have healthy skin, you’ll feel great about everything else, and the Ursa Major Clear, Healthy Skin Kit will put you on your way to the skin you’ve always wanted, so you can impress everyone else.
