6 Reasons To Switch To A Face & Body Oil
It’s the time of year when even the most nurtured dry skin becomes parched, cracked and unresponsive to your usual moisturisers. The lack of humidity and cooler air often leads to problematic skin and the need to revamp your beauty regime.
Switching from your regular moisturiser to a body oil can offer an ideal solution to even the most inflammatory skin conditions. Body oils are often surprisingly non-greasy and quickly absorbed, delivering much needed moisture to the places where your skin needs it the most. Typically they are clear in colour, with the most effective being free from chemicals and artificial colouring and suitable for use on your face too.
A face and body oil may be just the thing your tired skin needs during the autumn and winter months.
Oils add essential moisture to even the driest of skins. With grapeseed, sunflower and rosehip oils, My Trusty’s face and body oil is packed with essential fatty acids to replenish your skin, leaving it soft and supple. To revive weary skin, apply immediately after your bath and shower to lock in much needed moisture.
The skin’s lipid barrier is continually battling a barrage of environmental effects in cooler weather, including low humidity, biting winds and extreme temperatures. Lipids are fats which help to retain moisture and prevent dirt and impurities from penetrating your skin. A natural face and body oil will enable fatty acids to penetrate the epidermis (outer layer) of your skin and replace lost moisture. For maximum effect, apply your oil after washing or splashing your face with water. It’s important to be aware that over-cleansing can also strip lipids from your skin so use only the gentlest cleansers in your beauty routine.
Perfect for distressed skin
Cooler air may lead to a flare-up of often painful skin conditions such as eczema and acne. A nourishing oil is ideal to ease distressed or irritated skin. My Trusty face and body oil is 99% natural and suitable for use on a range of inflammatory skin conditions and sensitive skin.
Suitable for oily skin too
It may come as a surprise to learn that face and body oils are also suitable for use on oily skin as they can help to restore its pH balance. Light, non-greasy oils may also slow down your skin’s production of natural oil, revealing a healthy, radiant complexion.
Enhanced sense of well-being
Long dark nights and dull days lead to higher incidences of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). Face and body oils may help to counteract its effects by offering a boost to your sense of well-being and improve relaxation levels. Fragranced with neroli, rosemary and bergamot, My Trusty face and body oil both uplifts and energises to lift your mood on uninspiring winter days.
Value for money
Investing in a face and body oil is a cost effective skincare choice. A little goes a long way and you need only a few drops of oil to cover a significant area of your skin. Again, follow our advice above and apply immediately after bathing or showering for maximum skin hydration.
My Trusty face and body oil is specially formulated to deeply moisturise dry skin and is suitable for use on sensitive skin and skin prone to eczema, as well as babies over the age of eight weeks and mums-to-be.
