Facial Oils, The Good, The bad and The Oily

Hey everyone :-),

I am a real sucker for a good face oil for many reasons, it can do incredible things for your skin, a lot of people who have oily skin can really shy away from something that can really do wonders for their skin, a good cleansing oil for example will get into their pores and clean out the dirt and bad oils lurking there leaving your face lovely and mattified.

Moringa balm has to be tone of the best cleansing oil, for me  worth every penny in my book, so light and refined it gets into every pore and cleans it out, it comes in a balm form and just melts deliciously onto your face .. and it smells incredible ..

A cleaned out pore is in turn smaller and less noticeable on your face :-), there is not lots of cleansing balms/oils about and its up to you to choose what is best for your skin type, just make sure its as pure as possible if you can, organic cold pressed oils are the way to go!

I am using an amazing oil at the moment from Elizabeth Beckett made with golden flax oil, rose oil and Frankincense and it is a very powerful trilogy indeed, it sinks completely into the skin, rejuvenates, soothes and balances, it really leaves your face glowing in the morning and not a trace of oil in sight, perfect for an oily skin after a good cleanser.

Another oil i am never without is rosehip oil,in lots of different forms in an Elemis bliss capsule or Pai regenerating rosehip oil, or in a blend of oils for my face, i swear by it as it calms any redness which i am prone too and it is so soothing on really dry, angry skin and is renowned for helping to fade scars, it really is a wonder oil, i will not be without it!

I really love my lavender oil too, i use it at night it is very balancing, mildly antibacterial, it will dry out spots and promote skin rejuvenation … keep skin clean and stop spots spreading.

Please remember people a good quality oil is not the enemy, it can and will help your skin immensely, what we need to ditch are the face wipes and alcohol based items that are stripping the natural oils from your face, sending your skin into panic mode so it over produces the bad oils and leaves you fed up all day because it ruins your make up! So get the bad stuff binned and step into the light with the good stuff and nothing but beautiful glowing skin ❤

I love to dabble in my facial oils and put together a few drops of this and that depending on what i feel my face needs on any particular night, they not only help my skin but the scents are very therapeutic too, soothing and relaxing 🙂

You can buy lovely blends/synergies already made up and packed full of essential fatty acids, perfect for mature skins like mine, but whatever shape they come in embrace them because as your skin starts to age they will be your very best friends .
