When we suggest oil as a moisturiser replacement it is more often than not received with a face of 'are you serious?' In fact yes we are. Especially in winter time when hydration is an issue that effects most of us.
Using a nutrient dense oil can not only help repair the skin but they don't clog pores the way a lot of moisturisers do. So if you are looking for something a little more lightweight you should be looking more towards an facial oil to add to your nightly routine. Even if you have oil prone skin believe it or not facial oil is the way to go. When the skin is adequately moisturised it will stop the over production of its own oil and therefore you will avoid that shiny t - zone. A huge bonus of the facial oils is the shelf life! When using oil a little goes more than a long way and due to the ingredients it can have a shelf life of up to two years making it much more cost effective than a lot of other products on the market.
We have chosen two of our favourite oils as recommendations for different skins but both from the organic range Skin Juice.
The first option is the REJUICE face oil. It has a mix of ultra calming, skin nurturing ingredients and is a healthy replacement for your night cream. It contains NO nut oils and is pregnancy safe. Vital nutrients in Rejuice help regulate oil production, soothe inflammation, treat breakouts and reduce redness to unveil a healthy balanced glow. Ideal for all skin types but especially for hypersensitive and problematic skin. The addition of anti-inflammatory chamomile calms sensitive skin and symptoms related to rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
Our second option is the Superfood Face Oil. The oil-soluble nutrients are fed to the skin to strengthen and repair its essential barrier function, regulating natural sebum (oil) and secretions to flow uninterrupted through the night without the blocking the pores. The oil will nourish dryness and dehydration with moisturising sunflower seeds, camellia and prickly pear oils. The use of oil will help fight free radicals to keep the skin younger with antioxidant dense pomegranate and red raspberry.
We highly recommend including a daily facial oil but if you cant decide between the two or have questions do not hesitate to come in and have a test or a chat.
