Working closely with a group of doctors and a chemist, Flynn created Love Life Skin, overseeing everything from product development to safety testing to copywriting. All the products (a daily moisturizer, a serum, an eye cream, and a hand cream) feature Recovery Elixir 31, a deeply hydrating blend of organic botanicals, antioxidants, and heavy-duty moisturizers like astrocaryum murumuru seed butter and hyaluronic acid, to reduce redness, irritation, and inflammation. Ten percent of the proceeds from sales will go to cancer research. "That's really just selfish of me," says Flynn. "Research is expensive, cancer tends to revisit, and I don't want to deal with it again in my lifetime."
