21 Aug Suffering from Flaky Skin? These Luxurious Facial Oils Can Help!
Is anybody else’s complexion suffering the effects of cold and windy Winter weather? Thanks to both changed weather conditions and common changes in our lifestyle (i.e. diet and level of activity), the cooler months can play real tricks on our skin and leave you looking and feeling dry and dull.
Facial oils are fantastic for suffering skin and best of all, they’re suitable for all skin types (yep, even acne prone or oily skin). Formulated with a huge range of different ingredients, facial oils are luxuriously nourishing and help to regulate our skin’s natural production of sebum. With the right blend of ingredients, they can even help to target things like fine lines, hyperpigmentation, inflammation and dullness.
A healthy glow is a must-have year-round so we’ve rounded up some of the best face oils to help give your skin an injection of nourishment and return it to its former glowing glory.
This lightweight oil is intensely nourishing and absorbs quickly so you can easily layer the rest of your skincare on top or even your makeup of a morning.
