Regardless of type (dry, oily, combination), your skin naturally produces and excretes oil, so using oil-based products to replace and replenish this lost oil makes sense.
As we age, our skin continues to lose moisture, making wrinkles and fine lines more apparent. It’s extra important to use the right oils which are light and easily absorbed as a protective measure against this.
It’s a common myth that oils cause acne. Not true. What often happens is people tend to over-cleanse in an attempt to strip back oily skin, but all this does is cause the skin to produce more oil to replace the lost moisture. So, what you need is the right oil as part of your skincare regime.
Which oils are best?
Jojoba – a powerful moisturiser that soothes the skin and smooths lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. Can also be used as a makeup remover. Perfect for all skin types.
Rosehip – full of antioxidants and vitamins, rosehip oil moisturizes and reduces sun damage. Great for dry skin thanks to the essential fatty acids.
Almond – used to soothe and nourish sensitive skin, almond oil is full of vitamins A, E and D. It can also be used to minimise dark circles around the eyes. All
Combination Oil – ideal for oily and combination skin which needs a lighter touch. This wonder oil combines Macadamia, Primrose, Rosehip and Jojoba to name a few.
