There aren’t too many people who haven’t heard about the wonders of Rosehip Oil (‘Today Tonight’ and ‘A Current Affair’ have done many stories on them – it’s practically yesterday’s news!). Rosehip Oil is a fantastic facial oil but it is not for everyone.
For me and many others Rosehip Oil causes breakouts so I have had to look for facial oil alternatives. Luckily the plant kingdom provides us with many to choose from. Here are 4 favourites that deserve cult status just like Rosehip Oil.
Hemp Seed Oil
It has the perfect balance of omega 3 to 6 and is the only plant to contain vitamin D. It is has a very similar structure to the skins own lipids so it doesn’t clog pores while being able to penetrate cells and provide hydration and lubrication. This capability and hemp oil’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties make it the perfect oil for whatever condition your skin is in.
Chia Seed Oil
The health benefits of Omega 3 are well documented and your skin thrives on Omega 3. Now you wouldn’t be very popular if you rubbed yourself with a salmon (especially on a hot day) so chia seed oil is a much better option. It is the richest botanical source of omega 3, which maintains moisture levels and encourages collagen and elastin creation, supporting the skin’s structure, shape and texture.
The #1 super-food is also a super-skincare ingredient for the exact same reasons. It not only has the highest level of antioxidants it also highly moisturises, restores elasticity, protects from free radicals, rich in B vitamins and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Sea Buckthorn Oil
This little wonder contains omega 7 which is vital in maintaining the skin’s protective lipid barrier or acid mantle. It is high in vitamin A, B, C and E which are the building blocks for clear, healthy glowing skin.
So which one do I choose?
Why not all of them? Each of them is a fabulous solo act but they make an even better team. That is because by blending them together you get a perfect balance of omega 3, 6 and 9 which all skin types will love.
The ‘Good Vibes’ Omega Facial Oil has been created with this balance of omega 3, 6 and 9 as well as omega 5 and 7.
And why should I choose an oil instead of a cream?
You may be wondering why should you even contemplate using a facial oil. Well the best answer I can give is that they moisturise better than a cream and provide all the nourishment of a serum.
