What’s all the fuss about Oils?
Oils slow ageing, stop breakouts and penetrate deeply into the skin.
Oils Slow Ageing
The secret to younger-looking skin is hydration and antioxidants – and oil has both in bucket-loads.
Look for products that contain emollient oils, including sunflower, safflower and sesame seed, combined with the antioxidant benefits of rosehip, argan and grapeseed oil.
They Stop Breakouts
The cosmetic-g oils produced today have a consistency similar to water, so they won’t clog pores.
Naturally derived oils with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits are ideal for acne-prone skin. Look for oils containing coconut, tea tree, sandalwood or neem oil.
Skin Likes the Familiar
Oil, which is compatible with your skin’s natural functions, can penetrate deeper into the skin and carry active ingredients where you need them.
