Ever thought Canadians are comparable to trees? It’s not so far fetched when you consider our national flag waves a maple leaf as its emblem…so hear me out.

We Canadians are rooted, grounded and known for our proudly stoic behaviour. We bend and sway with resilience under the stress of a fluctuating loonie and our southern neighbours’ choice in political candidates. And we know how to survive the harshest environments including glacial winter weather, while resurfacing optimistically in the spring. Like those indigenous to our country, the Western Red Cedar, the Lodgepole Pine, the Rocky Mountain Fir, the Red Oak and the Sugar Maple to name a few, we stand tall and strong, despite what comes our way. So it only seems fitting that we should benefit from what the trees have to offer. Specifically, the Black Pine trees found in Korres Black Pine Active Sleeping Oil.

Sure, these trees are more Mediterranean-based than North American oriented, but they capture the Canuck spirit. The Black Pine is resilient and continually improves its defense systems against all stressors, weather included. Sounds familiar doesn’t it.

The Pines are also highly adaptable (another Canadian quality we’re not saying: I’m sorry for), renowned for synthesizing polythenols (a binding agent used in skin care) and tannins (a natural chemical found in plants that helps prevent against destruction).  When extracted and mix-mastered into Korres’ Black Pine Active Firming Sleeping Oil, the end result is a formulation that stimulates our collagen and elastin producing genes to promote ageless, softer, plumper and firmer-looking skin. All you need to do is rub a little in before you go to bed at night. Sleeping with the trees is optional.

Korres Black Pine Active Firming Sleeping Oil comes in 30 ml for $79, available at Shoppers Drug Mart  Beauty Boutique stores across Canada.
