Why are face oils good for the skin?

Face oils have gained popularity in recent years as a natural and effective solution for skincare. Many people wonder why face oils are good for the skin and how they can benefit their complexion. Here we will explore the science behind face oils and why they are a valuable addition to your skincare routine.

Face oils are formulated with a blend of natural plant-based oils that are rich in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins. These oils penetrate deep into the skin, providing nourishment and hydration to the underlying layers.

One of the key benefits of face oils is their ability to moisturize the skin. The fatty acids in the oils help to strengthen the skin's natural barrier, preventing moisture loss and keeping the skin hydrated throughout the day. This is especially beneficial for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin, as face oils provide an extra layer of hydration that traditional moisturizers may not offer.

Face oils also have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to calm and soothe irritated skin. The antioxidants present in the oils help to neutralize free radicals, which are harmful molecules that can damage the skin and accelerate the aging process. By reducing inflammation and protecting against oxidative stress, face oils can help to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.

Contrary to popular belief, face oils are suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin. In fact, using a face oil can actually help to regulate the skin's natural oil production. When the skin is stripped of its natural oils, it can overcompensate by producing more oil, leading to breakouts and congestion. By applying a lightweight face oil, the skin's oil production can be balanced, resulting in a clearer and more balanced complexion.

When choosing a face oil, it is important to consider your skin's specific needs. For individuals with sensitive or acne-prone skin, look for oils that are non-comedogenic and have a low comedogenic rating to avoid clogging pores. For dry or mature skin, opt for oils that are rich in fatty acids and antioxidants to provide deep hydration and nourishment.

In conclusion, face oils are a valuable addition to any skincare routine. Their ability to moisturize, soothe, and protect the skin makes them a versatile and effective product. Whether you have dry, oily, or sensitive skin, incorporating a face oil into your daily regimen can help to improve the health and appearance of your complexion.

Use four to five  drops of face oil, this amount will be enough for face and neck, avoid using the oil close to the eyes, apply the face oil with wet hands or on moist skin, you can use just water. Water becomes the vehicle that helps the face oil penetrate the skin rather than the face oil sitting on top of the skin’s surface. Gently massage the skin until the oil is fully absorbed. This can be a great time to give yourself a rejuvenating facial massage.

 You don’t need to use an additional moisturizer when you use our face oils, they are nourishing and moisturizing and provide the skin with the right amount of fatty acids that the skin needs to keep the balance. We recommend you the use of a serum before the Face Oil like our Botanical Hyaluronic Serum for the morning and our Night Serum or Enzyme Serum for the Night. These serums are designed to deliver high concentration of actives ingredients and nutrients to the skin.

For the morning routine apply SPF after the Face oil.

What is LED Light Therapy?

 LED light therapy is a process that manipulates or regulates cell activity using portions of the visible/invisible light spectrum that do not contain any Ultra-Violet rays. 

The various wavelengths of light are absorbed by the epidermal cells and stimulate cell regeneration in multiple portions of the skin. This therapy is a non-thermal, non-invasive and non-ablative method to rejuvenate the skin. 

What are the benefits of LED Light Therapy Treatment?

  • Stimulates healing and natural collagen production
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Stimulates fibroblasts, which improve circulation and help re-build and strengthen tissues from the inside out
  • Non-invasive, non-abrasive and non-thermal
  • Safe for all skin types, colors, conditions and ethnicities
  • Improves acne conditions by destroying bacteria (Blue LED Light)

Why Peptides are important in our skincare routine?

 Peptides are the building blocks of proteins needed by the skin and organs, they reinforce essential proteins like collagen and elastin.

These proteins are responsible for the skin's texture, strength, and resilience.
There are three main categories of peptides used in cosmetic skin products: signal peptides, carrier peptides, and those that inhibit nerve signals. By acting as messengers, signal peptides can trigger collagen synthesis, which then increases skin firmness.
Studies show that the benefits of using a skincare routine with peptides in its formulation include: helping boost collagen production, improving skin's firmness and elasticity, hydration and much more.
Our Night Serum, Light Weight Moisturizer, Cucumber Eye Gel and Peptide Moisturizer are some of the products in our skincare line that have been formulated with Peptides. They also include components like undiluted hyaluronic acid, plant derived amino acids and botanical antioxidants. Together, these ingredients support the skin's natural ability to regenerate and rejuvenate itself. Many of you have already seen the great power of peptides when using these products.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It makes up 70-80% of the skin composition, with most of it found in the dermis. With age, collagen levels deteriorate and  start to become visibly apparent in our mid-30’s and more so in our mid-40’s. Studies show that women’s skin loses one-third of its collagen during the onset of menopause and continues to gradually decline every year. 

Collagen provides the structural integrity that gives the skin its strength and resilience.
