Winter has a way of really messing with our skin. As the weather cools and the air becomes dry and harsh, we inevitably wake up one day wondering what happened to our healthy summer complexions. Whether you’re struggling with chapped skin, fine lines, redness, or inflammation, restore your glow with one of the most classic skin care treatments of all time: oil.
Oils have been used for millennia to nourish and protect skin, but not all oils are created equal. We’ve done the hard work for you and handpicked the most well-loved oil blends to solve the most common winter skin woes. There’s no better time than now to treat your skin to a little TLC!
As always when incorporating a new skincare product, we recommend doing a patch test before applying something new all over your face. Apply a tiny amount on one square inch of your face a few days in a row to make sure your skin will tolerate it. A bad reaction is the last thing you need!
It’s always preferable to take a preventative approach to skincare over intense treatments, but nature doesn’t always give us that option. If you’ve been noticing a few unwanted fine lines or wrinkles popping up, L’Occitane’s Immortelle Divine Youth Oil might be just what the doctor ordered. Customers rave that the anti-aging formula soaks right in, leaving their skin plump and glowing. Sounds good to us!
