Whatever the season or weather and whatever your age or skin type, facial oils can be the difference between ‘okay’ skin and ‘oh wow’ skin.
Wear Park Spa Manager, Amber, (in between playing with her daughter at home!) explains how to use facials oils to invigorate your skin for maximum radiance and glow.
There are many, many facial oils available, so it’s important to choose the right one for your skin. Facial oils offer nourishment for all skin types, from oily through to dry.
Choose the right facial oil
A common mistake is that you shouldn’t use on oily skin. This is not true. It’s a case of ‘fight fire, with fire’, you can fight oil, with oil! Avoid stripping oily skin by using a facial oil with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial properties to heal and rebalance sebum levels. Oils plump the skin with deeper hydration to penetrate skin layers for long-term, anti-ageing. Elemis Superfood Facial Oil contains a whopping 9 oils, packed full of nutritious ingredients including broccoli seed, poppy seed, cucumber seed, macadamia, rice bran, daikon radish, rosehip seed, flax seed and meadowfoam seed, its vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids recharge and renew the skin. Doesn’t that sound better than trying to dry out the skin?
If dry or aging skin is your concern. There are a two options in the Elemis range that have proven results. A quick visit to Wear Park Spa will help determine which one will benefit you the most. A good place to start, is the ultra replenishing Pro-Collagen Marine Oil. Over 90% of users agreed their skin was softer, healthier and glowing after four weeks. The trio of seaweeds – Padina Pavonica, Golden Seaweed and Roaring Water Kelp – deliver maximum hydration, whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If your skin needs that bit more, the Pro-Collagen Definition Oil will reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve skin tone and redefine and regenerate your skin. Raspberry plant stem cell technology, Himalayan Gentian extract, omega-rich Evening Primrose and organic Barbary Fig oil, plump the skin with essential fatty acids, locking in moisture for all day hydration – 98% of women agreed that the product hydrated the skin all day.
How to apply
We know that every drop of oil will pack a punch of nourishment direct to your skin, but you can easily enhance these benefits by incorporating a facial massage. Facial massages boost circulation and help to drive the oil deeper into the skin leaving your skin looking detoxed and radiant. Increasing the oxygen and blood flow in the skin will give you fresher, glowing skin while the massage can also encourage collagen production, which we all know helps to prevent wrinkles. It also strengthens muscle memory.
The experts at Elemis recommend the following massage technique, morning and night, after cleansing the skin.
Put 5 drops of facial oil into the palm of your hands, cupping under the nose and deeply inhaling the natural essences to stimulate the senses.
Using all of your fingers:
Repeat this sequence 3 times every morning and evening to treat your skin and your senses to a moment of deep relaxation.
