Face oils for every skin concern

When it comes to face oils, blends are better than individual oils and not just any blends, there is a world of difference between a basic blend curated at home and a sophisticated well balanced one. You could ofcourse copy a recipe and mix up the various component oils by yourself, but first do your math it might not be as cost effective as you would like it to be.

If like me you’re not much of a DIY person, you might want to try one of these.

Dry skin

Clarins blue orchid face treatment oil

£33.99 amazon.co.uk

 $47.99 amazon.com

This leaves your skin so soft and hydrated, once you’re hooked you won’t bear to forget to use it.

This best-selling face oil contains extracts of Rosewood, Patchouli and Blue Orchid. Added Hazelnut Oil helps prevent moisture loss and the formation of fine lines Suitable for dry or combination skin.

It has a pleasant smell but as someone who suffers from migraines I should mention that the scent is somewhat of a migraine trigger, but there’s hardly anything to worry about if you use during the day when headed outdoors, the smell will dissipate fast enough.

Anti-aging

Looking for a product to prevent signs of aging? If this is your first foray into anti-aging skincare rosehip oil is perfect for you, I say this because no-one should be using retinols before their time, once you start with retinols you need to keep it up.

Retinols can reverse the signs of aging but not without a cost, for more clarity on this visit yesterday’s post.

Now back to rosehip oil, It protects the skin and increases cell turnover because it contains vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin D and B-carotene, a form of vitamin A, and which are all antioxidants that help fight free radicals.

£11.95 amazon.co.uk

$13.95 amazon.com

Rosacea

When you have rosacea It’s important to treat your skin gently. Avoid potential irritants such as alcohol, retinol, AHAs and preservatives.  Avoid hot showers too as they can increase skin flushing. Not everything works for everyone but additionally I would recommend this balance me rose otto face oil, it contains essential fatty acids that ease the redness and help to rehydrate and calm your skin.

£32 amazon.co.uk

$154.49 amazon.com

Dark spots

When dealing with dark spots or hyperpigmentation, almost everybody now knows the important role played by skin resurfacing, AHAs come highly recommended for this purpose.

There’s a multitude of reasons why some can’t use AHAs one of which is the resultant dryness that comes with using acid toners, if you’re worried about dryness but still want to treat your hyperpigmentation, how about citrus oils?

 Don’t make the mistake of using them straight, they are always better diluted (as most other essential oils). I’ve included some links of facial oil blends that have citrus oils in them, personally I use luron stimulating massage oil but it’s not available online. 

amazon.co.uk

One thing you want to remember is to always skip your acid toner when using citrus oils, don’t worry about exfoliation, citrus oils will do that as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. When I was younger I had quite oily skin and would have run a million miles from the idea of putting yet more oil on my skin. These days it’s less so, but still on the oily side of normal, but I’ve now experienced the benefits of face oils and I LOVE them 😍
    I would just say though to anyone reading, please don’t ever put citrus essential oils directly on the skin – they are phototoxic and can cause burns.

    • If you strictly want to use an oil, there’s drunk elephant C- firma day serum. If you would go for something hard hitting but not necessarily an oil there’s the ordinary vitamin C suspension.
      What is your current routine like?

      • Well I’ve always had a really great skin. Then I fell pregnant and got hyper pigmentation on my face so trying to get rid of it. Some say you can’t others say you can. I’m using Dr Organic which a friend recommended but I’m assuming I’ll have to use it for weeks before I see any results.

      • It’s true hyperpigmentation comes back, but only when it is triggered. With a proper regimen you can keep it away. I’ll do a post on it to answer your question comprehensively.
