Facial oils are one of those products that even skincare lovers tend to be hesitant towards. But why is that? It was the same story when hair oils first started to become popular on the market, and gradually made their way onto our shelves and into our beauty routines. We work so hard to make sure that our hair isn’t greasy and our skin isn’t oily, so it can be counter-intuitive to put oil on our face or in our hair.
But I’m here to urge you to move past that fear. Because, trust me, you won’t regret it.
If you have combination or blemish-prone skin, it can be difficult to find a facial oil that works for you. Well, there is no need to look any further, because the Manuka & Vitamin A Clarifying Facial Oil could be just the thing that your skincare routine is missing.
We all go through stages where our skin isn’t looking at its best. And it can seem like a vicious cycle: the blemishes appear, which stresses you out, and then you get more blemishes because you’re stressed! In these moments, it can be difficult to know which products and ingredients are aggravating your skin, and which are helping it to heal.
Well, look no further because Green Keratin has the perfect, organic oil for your skin type.
The best thing about this facial oil is that it is specially formulated to clarify the skin, helping to eliminate any impurities that could lead to blemishes.
Manuka Oil - The Key to Fighting Off Blemishes
The Manuka Tree, native to New Zealand’s North Island, is known within the health and skincare community for being the source of some of the most luxurious and unique ingredients. Manuka oil is derived from the leaves of the Manuka Tree through steam distillation, making it more concentrated and potent than Manuka Honey. This method of harvesting is great due to its sustainability, as only the leaves and branches are being collected.
In this facial oil, the luxurious Manuka Oil is carefully formulated along with Jojoba and Watermelon Seed Oils. These oils are all rich in natural antioxidants which help fight off bacterial growth, which is what makes this oil so perfect for blemish-prone skin.
You may still be questioning whether an oil can really help heal spots and other nasty blemishes. But I can truly vouch for this one. Even after just a few uses, my blemishes, which have been very aggravated recently, appeared diminished.
Vitamin A Palmitate
Vitamin A is another exciting ingredient contained within this facial oil. This is a type of Vitamin A that is formed from Retinol and Palmitic Acid, which acts as a fantastic conditioning agent for the skin. It helps to reduce flaking skin by providing intense hydration and restores the skins natural suppleness.
As well as this, Vitamin A Palmitate is also a natural antioxidant. By now you can probably tell that this facial oil is just stuffed to the brim with antioxidants! As an antioxidant, Vitamin A Palmitate helps stimulate the skins collagen production, plumping out the skin and improving the appearance of fine lines.
So, not only is this oil great for those with blemish prone and combination skin, but it’s also suitable for those with signs of ageing.
Who knew one facial oil could do so much?
Add Some Pampering into Your Evening Routine
Facial oils, especially one as luxurious as this, are perfect for adding a bit of pampering into your evening routine. This oil is perfect as the next product following your toner, after you have removed any makeup and cleansed your skin.
Top Tip: If you are using a toner, then try applying this oil while your skin is still slightly damp to lock in all the precious moisture.
This little bottle packs a big punch, so all you need is a few tiny drops applied to the trouble areas of your skin. Make sure you don’t use too much otherwise your skin will become greasy and it will clog your pores! So just use enough to give yourself a healthy-looking complexion. But don’t worry, the pipette is perfect for ensuring you use the right amount.
And now the real pampering begins: massage the oil into your skin using small, upward circular motions to give it an extra boost. And the best part? You don’t even have to follow with a night cream as this oil does all the work!
One of the best things about this oil is that it has a lightweight texture which sinks into the skin very easily. This means that your skin isn’t left feeling greasy or tacky. Also it has such an amazing, fresh, fruity scent.
