STYLEwise: The good oil on skincare

A-LIST celebrity trendsetters like Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Stone are onto the latest in skincare by including natural face oils in their beauty regimes.

If you too are looking to have healthier, younger-looking skin without exposure to chemicals, toxins or harsh treatments, consider adding face oils to your skin care routine. Yes, it turns out the skin care ingredient we've feared most of our lives can actually transform our skin. Just as oils rich in essential fatty acids are required in our daily diet to keep our bodies healthy, the right skin care oils are also necessary to keep your skin healthy.

When you look at young, luminous skin, you are seeing skin at its healthiest skin cells held together by an abundance of oils. As we age, we produce less of the oils that give our skin a healthy glow. So, your job is to add them back. Doing so is one of the most important ways you can support your skin, because a healthy lipid barrier prevents dehydration by helping skin retain moisture.

When oils are applied to the skin, they are absorbed directly into the top layers of the epidermis, where they instantly go to work to improve the lipid barrier function. More often than not you'll see immediate results from the first application (it's true).

So who will benefit? The great news is -- all skins. Facial oil balances oiliness, nourishes dryness, strengthens skin against irritation and plumps the signs of ageing.

Why not give it a whirl while it's still cool. Replace your night cream with an oil like Skin Juice's Superfood Face Oil to ensure your skin is getting the essential nutrients it needs to help maintain optimum skin health and a youthful glow. This non-greasy, fast absorbing potent mix of 21 nutrients is toxin free, nut free and safe for expectant mums.

Superfood face oil is 100% skin digestible, enabling nutrients to be delivered deep into the skin, supporting the skins essential barrier function while allowing natural oils and secretions to flow uninhibited at night. This ensures the skin can absorb all the nutrients it needs without the fear of clogged pores. For extra skin nutrition during the day apply alone or add drops to your face cream.

The non-greasy blend will help to balance oiliness and treat breakouts with purifying broccoli and healing tomato, while antibacterial citrus fruits help to cleanse congestion. It nourishes dryness and dehydration with moisturising sunflower seeds, camellia and prickly pear.

This juicy mix contains skin nurturing essential fatty acids from chia, blueberry and kiwi fruit, along with Omega 7 rich seabuckthorn berries. These keep the skin moisturised from the inside to comfort skin sensitivity, while anti-inflammatory turmeric and chamomile help to sedate redness.

Fight free radicals to keep the skin younger with antioxidant dense pomegranate and red raspberry while it plumps the signs of ageing with commipheroline, an Indian extract that will convert the essential fatty acids into a fat that will plump and feed the deeper layers of the skin.

An extra special squeeze of anti-ageing micronized algae helps to increase the production of skin supportive collagen. What a busy bottle!

It's also easy to juice you skin. You only need to rub a squirt of this nutritious oil onto the face, neck and chest, allowing the goodness to absorb and you will wake up with a fresh, nourished face thanks to this lightweight, non-greasy, skin-loving oil.

For extra skin nutrition during the day apply alone or add drops to your face cream. We are also excited that this oil contains NO petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, mineral oils, silicones, glycols, PEGS, synthetic colours, formaldehyde, sulphates, phthalates, BPA plastic. Make sure you check the labels when shopping for facial oil.

See you next time when we will talk all things Spring, Sharon @ So U Beauty.
