Never has there been a simpler way to make big changes to your skin, oil cleansing is incredible for ALL skin types. Enjoy a new oil cleansing blend and skincare routine that's just perfect for hyperpigmentation, acne prone or mature skin.
Oil cleansing may sound counter-intuitive to some but when you consider that oil breaks down oil it begins to makes sense, even for acne prone skin. Why? Certain oils (high in linoleic acid) go after the grime without stripping your natural oils which in turn prevents your skin from overreacting and producing more oil. I love the simplicity of oil cleansing and how my skin feels afterwards, soft and moisturized rather than dry and in need of a thick moisturizer.
Traditionally, carrier oils like olive, coconut and castor oil are used but they're not super successful for many of us because of the high oleic acid content. For some, these oils can make breakouts worse and have proven to be too drying for mature skin.
When skin's sebum is high in oleic acid sebum becomes hard and clogs pores. Applying (feeding) our skin natural carrier oils that are high in linoleic acid balances sebum to also be higher in linoleic acid which helps tired skin look vibrant and clear.
If what I just said resonates with you, I think you'll love my best alternative!
Rosehip seed oil is the only vegetable oil to contain retinol (vitamin A). It is also high in the essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and linolenic acid (omega-3), as well as the antioxidant lycopene and beta-carotene. The essential fatty acids are naturally moisturizing while the anti-oxidants and beta-carotene help prevent premature aging and promote wound healing while regenerating tissue. Vitamin A (retinol) fights wrinkles, sun damage and hyperpigmentation. It's really great for all skin types, high quality (organic, unrefined, cold pressed) Rosehip Seed Oil is incredibly nourishing. You may remember me referring to this oil as a "dry oil", this only means that the high essential fatty acid content is absorbed by the skin rapidly, a good thing!
I never thought skincare could be this easy or inexpensive but as it turns out, I was wrong for many years!
The best skincare is the simplest skincare.
