It may seem counterintuitive to apply oil as part of your skin care regimen. Many of us already have greasy complexions, so adding more oil seems counterproductive. And most women dislike oily textures on their skin. However, applying the right kinds of oils – i.e., essential oils – can make anyone’s skin more radiant. Certain plant extracts are known for their ability to encourage healthy skin. By selecting beauty products that are based on select botanical extracts and essential oils, you can achieve whatever goals you may have for your skin.
This is a beauty secret many celebrities already understand. For instance, Julianne Moore and Gwyneth Paltrow are loyal customers of fashion stylist Linda Rodin, who experimented with a plethora of essential oils to create a luxurious facial product based on eleven different skin-smoothing extracts. RODIN Olio Lusso is the result of her experimentation. It includes antioxidant and anti-inflammatory oils such as argan and calendula, along with fragrant essential oils such as jasmine, to create a sumptuous experience. Just a few drops of RODIN Olio Lusso applied morning and night to your freshly washed face and neck will smooth out and rejuvenate any type of skin.
Here are some of the other ways botanical oils can improve the skin:
Many plants have healing qualities to encourage healthy skin. For instance, Skyn ICELAND offers Pure Cloud Cream to repair skin ravaged by wintery conditions. This light cream contains oat and aloe extracts to eliminate irritation and inflammation. Other Skyn ICELAND products contain willow bark extract, which is known for its anti-inflammatory, astringent and conditioning properties.
To understand the power behind RODIN Olio Lusso and other essential oil-based products, consider that oils easily penetrate to the dermal layer of skin, where new cells are created. This means essential oils can quickly heal damaged skin.Read More »
The ingredients that make for a great day of skiing – sun, wind rushing by your face, high altitudes and cold temperatures – can do a real number on your skin. Below, we examine how each of these elements damages skin. We also provide recommendations on how to protect your skin before heading to the mountains, and how to best nourish it after a hard day of skiing, snowboarding or sledding.
Red, irritated skin is a common aftereffect of a snow play day. When wind blows on the same patch of exposed skin over the course of a day, windburn can occur. Like sandpaper tearing up wood pulp, the friction imposed by wind can chafe your skin and, in extreme conditions, cause blistering.
To protect your skin against the wind, be sure to apply a moisturizer before leaving for the resort or trail. Ultra Comfortable Face Cream, by Nuxe Paris, is an excellent choice. It contains Vitamin E and sunflower derivatives to protect against wind and other external irritants.Read More »
