Why we should use facial and body oils

Upon hearing the word ‘oil’, many people will think, ‘oh no, that’s not for me, too greasy and heavy for my skin!’.  Let me dispel that myth because in actual fact, facial and body oils are gre

at and come with many benefits for all types of skin. They can set you on the path of gorgeous complexion in no time.

Simply put, facial oils are friends not foes and are one of the many options for your skincare routine that help to work with your natural oils to help keep your skin nicely balanced.

Our skin makes its own oils and fats naturally to protect itself from water loss and drying out and to keep it hydrated. Facial oils simply complement this process. They have many benefits and one the of the most important is the extra level of protection for your skin. Thinking of skin as a wall, for example, your skin cells are the bricks and fats and oils are the mortar for holding it together and keeping it smooth, preventing anything seeping through. They are considered a type of emollient that means they strengthen the outer layer of your skin by sealing it, thus preventing the loss of vital water.

Being entirely plant based, our facial oil has endless benefits for your skin. Made using Apricot Kernel base oil (made from apricot seeds), it is extremely light and highly absorbent which, combined with the added benefits of calendula and chamomile which are both anti-inflammatory and healing, reduces skin redness and puffiness. The added scent of rose we added for a little extra touch. Why? Well, simply because it smells divine. It is beneficial for all skin types as it does not clog pores and enables the skin to breathe easily. You can put your makeup straight on without having to wait for it to absorb.

But with so many facial products out there, where do our oils slot in? Well, depending on the dryness of your skin, the facial oil can be used before your face moisturiser or instead of. It can also be applied as an “on the spot treatment” directly to any patch of dry skin for a little extra moisture.

As for body oil, the benefits are great and many. It moisturises dry skin, absorbs very quickly and contains antioxidant properties to keep skin healthy from the inside and out while preventing premature ageing. It contains sweet almond oil as well as grapeseed oil that is high in omega 6-fatty acids and Vitamin E which is again a powerful antioxidant. With added benefit of black pepper and juniper berry essential oil to warm your joints and orange essential oil for a beautiful scent, it is a joy to rub all over your body after a hot shower or a bath.

So not only are these facial and body oils fantastic for your skin, they smell great too!
