I have always been a fan of oils in beauty and skin care and have tried numerous types and brands throughout the years. I have found certain types of oils working much better for me than many expensive skin care products. My skin is normal/dry with a tendency to become dehydrated in the winter and when I’m traveling. These oils are my favorites right now and I wouldn’t want to be without any single one of them!
ARGAN OIL. This dry oil has been a staple in my house for many years. I love to take a few drops and brush it through my hair when I go to bed and then wash it out in the morning. It also works brilliant as a moinsturizer. I massage it into my face when going to bed in winter (once in a while) and always wake up with a hydrated glowy skin!
TEA TREE OIL. This strong smelling oil works miracles on pimples, cuts and burns as it has disinfecting qualities. A small drop goes a long way. I could not bee without this oil in my teens, but I still use it from time to time for small spots or pimples.
ALMOND GLOW. This is actually a mix of different oils of which one is rose oil and this is something I use for hot baths. I love to put just a few drops of this oil in a bath as rose is very soothing and relaxing. It is perfect for massages as well.
HUILE ORCHIDÉE BLEUE. This face treatment oil from Clarins is my newest addiction. It is an oil that you can use temporarily if your skin feels dehydrated (like after a long and cold winter!). I currently use this one at night on its own and I love how it really balances the skin and gives it moisture.
AVOCADO OIL. This oil is packed with vitamin A, D and E and potassium (known as the youth mineral). It has the power to increase the amount of collagen in the skin (which we loose as we grow older) as well as help healing sun damage and scars. I sometimes use this oil with some yoghurt and honey to mix a mask and put on for around 30 min. Or I use it as it is, as a moisturizer. Anyway, it works miracles!
