I enjoy taking care of my skin, whether it’s my face or body. I personally don’t buy the store bought Vaseline or Dove products or even the really expensive high end cremes like La Mer. The store bought brands are filled with so many ingredients I can’t even pronounce and the high end brands put an expensive price tag to make it seem like it works.
I’ve always believed simplicity and purity is key; 1-3 ingredients, natural products. I have also come to realize that oils are much more effective at penetrating and moisturizing the skin than cremes. The molecules are smaller, the texture is usually thinner, so they seep into the skin quicker.
I want to share the current body/face oils that I use right now.
TIP: If you have little ones, you can use these on them as well, Bonus!
Sacha Inchi Oil: A plant found in the Peruvian Amazon Forest with many beneficial properties. Inchi Oil is packed with Omega-3 and Omega-6, Vitamin A and E. This oil is a powerful antioxidant and anti aging, maintaining the skins elasticity, calming redness and irritation. Inchi oil can be used to prevent sun damage by nourishing the skin with hydration.
Wheat Germ Oil: Extracted from the kernel of the wheat grain. This oil is also packed with antioxidants and vitamin E. Wheat Germ Oil helps to nourish the skin, firm the skin and help with wrinkles and dryness. It can also be used on sensitive skin.
Almond Oil: Again, packed with vitamin E and antioxidants. Vitamin E helps with premature aging and the effects of sun damage. Almond oil helps prevent water loss from the skin, keeping it hydrated and smooth (no wrinkles).
I use all of these oils on a regular basis. They are light and non comedogenic (wont clog pores). I apply the almond oil after showers, while my skin is damp; its always better to apply any serum or oil to damp skin, it penetrates better.
I use the Inchi oil and Wheat Germ on my face day and night, combined or alone for a nice hydrated clean glow!
