Why you need a nourishing face oil
If you are like most women, then you’ve probably been using a moisturiser on your face for years. Choosing the right moisturiser can be confusing because there are so many different brands out there. But what if we told you that your skin needs more than just a moisturiser? It needs nourishment as well! That is why we decided to create the Beauty Glow Nourishing Oil, but first, let’s talk about all things oil and if you really need one in your skincare routine:
You have been using the wrong moisturiser for too long.
If you have been using a moisturiser every day for many months or even years, but your skin still appears problematic, dry or dull, then you need a nourishing boost!
Facial oils are not like your traditional face moisturiser. While both products are used to hydrate and nourish the skin, they do so in different ways. A good face oil will have a number of beneficial ingredients (think seabuckthorn, avocado and jojoba oils ) that help balance out your skin’s complexion, texture and tone, while adding moisture back into dry areas.
You see, while it may seem counterintuitive at first (especially for those with combination/oily skin types), facial oils actually absorb into the skin much better than moisturisers due to their smaller molecule level, which allows the formula to penetrate the skin deeper. Therefore, a good facial oil can provide long lasting hydration, without leaving behind an oily residue like some moisturisers tend to do after application.
More than a Moisturiser
Your skin needs more than moisturiser. If you are experiencing dry and dehydrated, or oily and dehydrated skin; it's a sign your skin is not getting what it needs from your regular moisturising routine. Moisturisers may help with hydration on a short-term basis, but they don't actually provide the nutrients and antioxidants that your skin craves to maintain healthy cells in the long-term.
Facial oils are designed to be absorbed deeply into the layers of your epidermis where they deliver nutrients that plump up your skin from within - promoting elasticity and reducing fine lines as well as smoothing uneven texture.
You may think that face oils are a new thing, but they've actually been around for years and are nothing new! They are not a moisturiser and they're not a serum either. In fact, they’re kind of something in the middle! Instead, facial oils are designed to provide moisture without clogging pores, making it ideal for all skin types. Their lightness means that they can easily slip into your routine without interfering with any existing products.
The Beauty Glow Nourishing Oil is made with Chia seed Oil, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil and Sea Buckthorn oil. But what makes these ingredients so good? Here’s the facts:
Chia seed oil is an amazing moisturiser. It is high in omega-3 fatty acids which help to fight inflammation and redness. This can be especially helpful for those of us with rosacea or sensitive skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis.
Avocado oil has a high content of vitamin E, which helps to increase collagen production and reduce fine lines, helping to soften the appearance of wrinkles. It also contains oleic acid which helps to nourish the skin, leaving it feeling healthier than ever before.
Jojoba oil has many benefits including being anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. The antioxidants found in this oil help fight off bacteria that causes blemishes, while also helping to fade hyperpigmentation so your complexion looks fresh and revitalised.
Sea Buckthorn oil contains Omega 7 fatty acids known as Gamma Linolenic Acid, which has even been proven to help treat sunburns when used topically. Sea buckthorn Oil also eliminates inflammation and inhibits the skins ageing process.
How to use it
Nourishing face oils are rich, moisturising and can be used on their own or in place of a serum.
To use our Beauty Glow Nourishing Oil, simply apply 1 - 2 pumps on your face and gently massage into skin, avoiding the eye area. Best applied after your serum and before your moisturiser so your skin can receive the maximum skin benefits. For best results, apply morning and night after cleansing, or whenever you feel like your skin needs an extra boost throughout the day. Although this wonderful oil is designed for your face, your body can also safely enjoy the benefits of hydrated, nourished skin.
