As this skin type is sensitive and reactive, I feel it would be wrong to use essential oils. Instead, the aim is to gently provide hydration and nourishment to the skin as well as reduce redness, inflammation and other discomforts by using carrier oils that are high in antioxidants and fatty acids.
Directions: Use morning and evening as the final stage in your skincare regime. You can mix with moisturiser on the back of your hand by dropping the desired amount into moisturiser and mix, or use alone. Apply to the face, neck, décolletage and back of hands, then press into the skin with an upward motion for 1 minute. I personally like to apply the oil, then perform a facial massage. Facial massage increases circulation (which in turn increases collagen production and prolongs the signs of ageing!), decreases puffiness, firms and strengthens the facial muscles.
Hemp Seed Oil. This is my favourite oil and found throughout all of my pre-made formulations. High in vitamins A & E, Omegas 3 & 6, antioxidants and minerals to nourish the skin. Hemp seed oil helps reduce redness and irritation and is an effective moisturiser thanks to the lipid similarity in the skin.
Rosehip Oil. High in vitamins C & A encouraging cell turnover, hydrating, high in antioxidants and Omegas 3, 6 & 9. Assists with anti-ageing and regulating sebum production.
Evening Primrose Oil. High in gamma linolenic acid, antioxidants and vitamins C & E. Hydrating and has anti-ageing and antibacterial benefits.
Black Cumin Seed Oil. Contains vitamins A, B and C, minerals and fatty acids and has oil balancing and anti-fungal properties.
Argan Oil. Very high in antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamin E to nourish and soothe.
Hazelnut Oil. A very gentle, astringent oil that tightens and smooths textured skin, it has a unique ability to break down build up in pores. Antibacterial properties with a high antioxidant profile. Known to moisturise, plump and rejuvenate the skin.
Apricot Kernel Oil. Very rich in the less common vitamin K which lightens the skin in areas that have darkened due to damage and scarring. When combined with the high content of omega 6 and vitamins A & E, they penetrate deeply, encouraging regeneration of cells and collagen production.
Blackcurrant Oil. A wonderfully healing oil that is high in antioxidants. Anti-inflammatory, antibacterial properties help to fight against various skin disorders.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil. Closely resembles our own skin sebum, therefore helps deliver its rich nutrient profile deep into the epidermis and encourages the skin barrier to retain moisture.
Neem Seed Oil. Wonderful for acne prone skin due to the powerful anti-bacterial properties. Rich in essential fatty acids, triglycerides, vitamin E and minerals means it helps with inflammation, irritation and redness and deeply nourishes the skin, restoring elasticity.
