Oils have really taken over the skincare market in a big way. When we used to reach for day and night creams and micellar water so many of us have now choose cleansing oils for makeup removal and facial oils to add a bit of glow and moisture beneath our foundation.
I was definitely guilty of swerving oil skincare because I hate greasy feeling products. But even I am a convert and not only do they feel good on the skin there are so many benefits!
Oils are great for hydration and it doesn’t have to be matter of one or the other – a drop of oil in your favourite moisturiser can give your skin an added boost and make the most of both products. But oils do boast healing and antioxidants properties that your moisturiser may not.
If you’ve read our latest posts you’ll see I love Infinatura, Cura Oil which is treats hair, skin and nails as well as reducing acne and stretch mark scarring. It’s rich in Vitamins A-B-E and Omega-9, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help protect the skin from free radical damage.
Every skin type can benefit under even if using under your normal moisturiser to give your skin that extra boost when it really needs it.
There’s an oil to meet every skin need – if you are on the look out here’s an oil to meet every skin need.
Argan oil – nourishing with and anti-ageing benefits. Good for skin, hair, lips anything that is dry as its full of Vitamin E and antioxidants.
Abyssinian oil – boasts fatty acid Omega 6 for skin and hair regeneration and Omega 3 which is anti-inflammatory and healing.
Rosehip oil – ticks all the boxes! Full of vitamins, antioxidants, hydrates dry skin and also reduces fine lines.
Jojoba oil – great for healing, contains vitamin E, vitamin B complex and zinc. It also has a very high percentage of iodine which fights harmful bacteria growth that leads to breakouts. Jojoba oil can also accelerate the wound-healing process, as indicated in a study done at the Department of Environment and Life Sciences in Italy. The results proved that jojoba oil speeds up wound closures and stimulates collagen.
