Face oils are very on-trend at the moment, but they’re not exactly new. In fact, men and women have been moisturising with oil for millennia.
In fact all moisturisers are is essentially emulsified oil, so it’s not an alien concept for your skin to be lathered with some good quality plant oil.
Facial oils are suitable for people with oily skins, who often avoid them. In fact, stripping the skin is the worst skin sin, provoking the skin to produce more oil to compensate. Applying just a few drops of facial oil helps regulate the skin and persuade it to produce less oil, according to the Daily Mail.
However, do bear in mind that dry skin may also be a question of dehydration. Do you sip-sip-sip through the day, to the tune of about eight large glasses of still water? Do you eat plenty of fruit and vegetables – that means five portions of fresh vegetables at meals (a rainbow of seven is tops) and fruit snacks (berries are excellent)? Do you consume enough oily fish, nuts and seeds, and actual oils – or take an Omega-3 supplement?
REN Rose O12 Moisture Defence Oil is an ultra-moisturising oil formulated to give dry and dehydrated skin a powerful shield to lock in moisture and restore glowing softness, comfort and radiance.
Dry skin lacks the natural lipids responsible for binding in moisture. As a result, its ability to act as a protective barrier is compromised and it can feel tight and uncomfortable. This nourishing, rose-infused face oil locks in moisture to plump, protect and soothe dry and dehydrated skin. It absorbs easily without feeling greasy or sticky and gives skin a natural healthy glow.
Omega 6 Ceramides from Cathame Oil (also known as Safflower Oil), Phospholipids from Soybean Oil and Omega 7 Essential Fatty Acids from Seabuckthorn Berry Oil help to boost skin’s lipid content, repair and strengthen its natural moisture barrier and protect it against further moisture loss. Ocnoic Acid from Ximenia Oil, a plum-like fruit from Africa rich in Vitamin C, locks in moisture to soften, condition and soothe skin while Tocotrienols from Cranberry Seed Oil protect the skin against oxidative damage and the signs of premature ageing. Rosa Damascena Oil from Damask Rose further calms and soothes skin and gives the product its natural, uplifting fragrance.
