Face oils were always associated with dry skins, but actually an oil will balance an oily skin. Most people can benefit from a little barrier support and I’d say there are a big percentage of people who will happily have a little help on the ageing front.
These are my 3 favourite face oils that are suitable for all skin types.
If you can get past the smell it’s gonna be a love affair. Pai says “Suitable for all skin types, this highly regenerative multi-tasking face oil tackles blemishes, dryness, dullness, pigmentation, redness and fine-lines.” I think that sums it up pretty nicely. It’s good healthy skin in a bottle and I think we could all do with a little bit of that. I’m onto my 3rd bottle of this so think that says how great it is. My main concerns are skin health and pigment marks left from breakouts. I have used this day and night but love that if you use it at night you wake up to healthy skin and my pigment marks are calmer. Over time it has completely healed up old blemish marks.
Zelens say “A high potency concentrate rich in provitamin D and bio-mimetic lipids structurally similar to those found in the skin. Formulated to deliver multiple skincare benefits, this unprecedented, lipid-replenishing treatment helps to restore the skin’s natural barrier and build skin’s resilience. Protects skin against environmental aggressors and strengthens skin’s resistance to stressed conditions. Leaves skin plumped, supple, protected and healthy-looking.”
I mean where do you start it not only sounds amazing but it is amazing. Caroline Hirons is the reason I bought this and she was not messing around. My skin has never felt healthier, it looks glowing and feels so soft and supple. It is skin health in a bottle. The texture is super light weight. For me it’s the one that everyone needs for great skin health.
Had to include my beloved Medik8 didn’t I. That said this has every right to be here. I was surprised to love it as much as I do. I actually bought this so I could sample it to a client. She loved it too and has since purchased a bottle. Bakuchiol brightens, evens skin tone and texture, prevents fine lines. In addition it reduces redness and inflammation and has a calming effect. If you don’t like or can’t use Vitamin A this is a great alternative. It is very much a different oil to the Pai Rosehip Oil but for me and my skin I feel I get similar results. It’s brilliant on pigmentation and not only that I feel like I’m keeping the wrinkles well and truly at bay.
All 3 of these although different are great skin in a bottle. They work in different ways and have different ingredient but you get that waking up with healthy happy skin.
Do you need all 3 oils at once no. Pick which you think gives you what your skin needs most. I do like to have a little bit of variety because different seasons, different times of the month make one more beneficial to another and I like to give my skin what it needs rather than continuing with something to use it up or just for the sake of it.
Let me now your favourite face oils in the comments.
