Winter skin tips: cleansing
Winter can be very harsh on your skin, so you don´t want to make the things even worse by stripping the epidermis of its natural oils by using too strong cleansers and exfoliators. Traditional cleansers can irritate the skin, cause excessive dryness, exacerbate acne and ultimately result in the skin overproducing oil after washing.
Many women have turned to oil cleansing as a way to gently remove makeup, soothe sensitive skin, and tame unrelenting breakouts.
They have witnessed themselves that oils used for cleansing have healing properties. Oils have also important nutrients and other skin-boosting benefits (as long as they are non-comedogenic).
Let us introduce the game changer in cleansing routine:
💛Oat oil nourishes and soothes dry and sensitive skin. The anti-fungal properties in oat oil helps to cleanse the sensitive and damaged skin, and also helps to reduce inflammation and seriously calm itching.
💛 Lingonberry seed oil has known to reduce wrinkles and increase skin hydration and elasticity. Berries contain polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants. Sterols reduce redness and skin sensitivity, promote tissue regeneration, and have anti-inflammatory properties.
💛Castor seed oil helps to grow thicker, longer eyelashes and eyebrows. It also helps fight
inflammation, reduce bacteria and soothe irritated skin.
💛 Jojoba oil regulates sebum production because it’s so similar to the sebum that your body produces naturally.
When you put jojoba oil on your skin, your skin is soothed and moisturized.
💛 Sunflower oil is extremely high in vitamin E, A, C, and D, making it effective in the treatment of acne. Sunflower seed oil contains vitamins and fatty acids that act as antioxidants to regenerate new skin cells and help your skin rid itself of acne-causing bacteria.
💛 Sweet almond oil is excellent at purging the skin of toxins, opening up pores, and retaining moisture that blocks the entry of dirty microbes.
