Dry sensitive skin? This is the number one complaint amongst my customers.
Often exacerbated by other skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and rosacea, it's just another unwelcome addition to midlife shenanigans.
Dry, itchy bits around the hairline? (My absolute favourite… not) Sore, bumpy bits on your cheeks. Flushed cheeks?
And to top it all, dry skin leaves you looking older, parched and stressed and depleted of any glow factor.
But there are plenty of natural helpers available that make a real difference, with plant oils being my favourite way of delivering high concentrations of active ingredients to your skin.
And you don't have to wait forever to see a difference.
These are five of my favourites that I use in my facial oils for dry and sensitive skin that pack a punch and hydrate & soothe naturally.
The Best Oil For Dry Skin
1 - Jojoba Oil For Your Face
One of my top choices, jojoba is a true multi tasker in the world of natural skincare. It's absorbed extremely easily by the skin and because it is a wax and not an oil, it's non greasy and great for hydration but without giving that too-rich feel.
Because it's deep penetrating, it's also super-stable; some of the botanicals we use are potent but fragile, and it's always a balancing act between fabulous benefits of an ingredient versus its' stability.
Jojoba reduces wrinkles, helps to treat psoriasis, acne, and dermatitis, and brings the skin back to its normal vitality and gives it a healthy glow (read pretty amazing).
You can find it in our Deep Nourish Facial Essence, and it's also a key ingredient in our organic Body Oils. Look out for it in its inci format, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil on the label.
