Best Oils for Your Skin

January 08, 2016

Did you know there are hundreds of beneficial oils that contain diverse therapeutic benefits for face and body? It's true! Below are some of our all-time favourites.

Sesame Oil

This wonderful oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamin E and zinc, which means not only does it help to protect against the signs of ageing, it also helps to repair damaged tissue as the zinc helps the skin to form new collagen. Found in many skin care products, Sesame absorbs in quickly and has a detoxifying effect as it helps to break down oils that clog pores.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil closely resembles the oil that your skin produces naturally, known as sebum. It’s gentle, and a little bit can go a long way towards hydrated, healthy skin. It contains a host of vitamins including copper, zinc, selenium and chromium. Our Body Oils contain both Sesame and Jojoba Oils and come in three delightful scents.

Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil is a superpower oil especially for the face.  Rosehip Oil is used to lighten age spots and treat hyper-pigmentation. Nourishing Rosehip will calm overactive skin and promote the growth of healthy new skin cells. Rosehip Oil is a star player in our Transformative Cleansing Oil. It’s wonderful for cleaning the skin of makeup, dirt, and environmental grossness but it also works well as an overnight treatment to hydrate and rejuvenate very dry skin over night. After cleansing the skin, apply a thin layer of the oil and in the morning your skin will have absorbed all that it needs and it’ll be soft and fresh looking.

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is one of the worlds most amazing substances that benefits us inside and out.  Full of proteins, vitamins, and anti-aging benefits, Coconut Oil not only naturally smells amazing it also spreads and absorbs easily. Adding a tablespoon of Coconut Oil to your daily diet will also help nourish nails, hair and skin from the inside. Go ahead and give them all a try! Then tell us, which one is your favourite?
