You know that amazing glow we’re always searching for at the bottom of the highlighters and illuminators? I have news for you – it’s not there. Sure, I know, they give your skin a little sheen and a touch of glitter sometimes, but it’s not natural, not really. BUT it’s not a skincare secret restricted to the A-list, it’s a simple addition to your skincare regime – face oils.
What you’re really after is lots of hydrations. There’s nothing that zaps away a healthy-looking complexion faster than dry skin. As someone with a visage drier than the Sahara, face oils have become a life-saver. And if you’re thinking “well I can’t use them, I have oily skin” I’m afraid you’re wrong. Face oils are packed with vitamins, amino acids and anti-oxidants to heal and hydrate stressed-out skin. Many people with an oily complexion use drying products that strip the skin to stop it from being oily. But, what this actually does is make the skin over-compensate and produce more oil. Are you still with me?
The great thing about face oils is that there’s one for every skin type and as someone with both dry and sensitive skin, Clarins Blue Orchid face oil is my new best friend. Made from 100% pure plant oils, it combines rosewood, patchouli and hazelwood oil to rebalance the skin and, you guessed it, give you that natural glow! And the best part? A little goes a long way, a few drops is all you need for beautifully hydrated skin. I always apply face oils when my skin is a little damp still because it helps the product to be absorbed.
