When most people think of facial oils the image that springs to mind is something messy and something…. quite frankly “oily” that will cause major skin breakouts and leave your skin with an unpleasant greasy feel!
But you need to think again!
Used as far back as 3,000 BC this ancient treatment for radiant skin is making a very modern comeback in the form of Jane Scrivner’s Face Oils. In fact using one of these oils as part of your skincare routine (Jane recommends at step 4) can actually reduce breakouts as well as solving many of your other skincare needs!
Facial Oil can actually reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Jane’s facial oils are packed with antioxidants which can protect against further skin damage and dryness and heal some of the damage already done.
Research from the University of Santiago in Chile found that with Jane’s Intense oil, “..After the third week of use, wrinkles started to disappear, by the end of the fourth month the disappearance was almost complete. Skin presented a smooth, fresh aspect”
Still nervous? If your skin tends to be on the shiny side and you’re nervous about trying oils, prefers start with a dab of Affirmative Oil because it’s light and beautifully non-greasy.
They’re good for dry skin.
At this time of the year the cold weather outside and the cranked-up radiators can literally suck moisture straight from the skin. Jane’s facial oils are the ideal antidote to those rough, rosy cheeks — and using an oil that can penetrate deeper into your dermal layer, can actually be even more effective at moisturising than your standard lotions and creams. If Redness is your key issue then try Jane’s Rose Gold oil, containing organic Bulgarian Rose Otto, which has both tonic and astringent effects, this oil works to soothe, moisturise and reduce redness caused by enlarged capillaries (thread veins).
They really protect your skin.
Because oils are lipophilic, they can penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water and other moisturizing goodness in, while keeping toxins and other bad stuff out. Some oils also help to fortify and strengthen our own natural skin barrier. This is especially important for big city dwellers that need extra protection against pollutants and smog, a known source of unwanted wrinkles. If you are not sure which oil to use Skin elixir is a multi-tasker that is suitable for all skin types.
They’re the perfect undercoat for applying your makeup.
Applying facial oil smoothes out your skin and provides an immediate plumping effect to creates the perfect canvas for your makeup
They can calm down rashes and other skin conditions.
Many of Jane’s facial oils also have anti-inflammatory properties, helping to quell irritated skin. Her Un Condition Oil contains 100% Organic, cold pressed Argan Oil alongside an organic essential oil of Frankincense. High in Vitamin E and rich in hydrating, essential fatty acids (polyphenols, squalene and ferulic acid) and full of anti-oxidants. Whatever your skin condition (acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea) the properties of Un Condition Oil will calm and soothe it.
