Scared Of Oils in Skin Care?


ATTENTION: Women of all ages and skin concerns. French cosmetics brand Clarins have just launched three wonderfully hydrating face treatment oils - one for each skin concern - and you are going to love them.

If you are scared of oils then don't be. Over the years I have studied and discussed the skin of many women who believe that oils in skincare will cause break-outs, oil-slick issues and blind pimples under the skin's surfaces but the truth is far beyond that. Like all beauty products on the market, oil facial cleansers and moisturisers are designed specifically to serve a particular purpose: to help your skin, not hinder it. You may not know but many foundations are oil-based, not water based so it is important to understand oils and their purpose.

For dry and mature skin, oils will really help to hydrate and plump the skin's surface due to its intense hydrating properties. Many oils are naturally derived and these sources are not only good for the skin but full of moisture-binding humectants.

If you have oily skin then try oils suited to your skin type. Oil-based makeup removers are great for oily skin because oil sits on water but latches on to oil which mean that it will grab on to excess oil that water may have been unable to remove on its own.

INTRODUCING: Clarins Face Rebalancing Oils. Made of 100% pure plant extracts these three rebalancing facial moisturising oils have been designed for different skin types (and did I mention that they smell amazing!!) While these popular products have been on the market for sometime, Clarins Face Rebalancing Oils have had a facelift and will be on counter and in stores from 30th January with this pretty packaging. Bottles now contain a dropper feature for application. With three different kinds to choose from and an affordable price point of $49, there is no reason you cannot try the one best suited to your skin.

Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil for dry, dehydrated skin.
This best-selling oil contains extracts of Rosewood, Patchouli and Blue Orchid to tone, revitalize and restore radiance to moisture-depleted skin. Hazelnut Oil helps prevent moisture loss and the formation of fine lines. 

Santal Face Treatment Oil for dry and very dry skin.
Clarins’ essential oils of Sandalwood, Cardamon and Lavender tone, soothe, comfort and decongest skin that is dry, irritated or stressed. Hazelnut Oil softens, smoothes and reduces redness. Santal helps prevent moisture loss and the formation of fine lines. 

Lotus Face Treatment Oil for oily skin.
Clarins’ exclusive blend of Rosewood, Geranium and Lotus extracts purifies, tightens pores and refines the skin texture. Hazelnut Oil softens, soothes and seals in moisture to prevent fine lines.
