The vegan secret to glowing skin
Molly Waring-Moore • April 17, 2018
We all know that we need to drink more water, eat our greens and get more sleep to have great skin, but we've got a quick fix to give you that glow.
And what is that fix? Facial oils. But not just any, we're talking about vegan night oils.
Vegan facial oils
If you’re looking for a quick skin fix then this might be it. If you can only add one thing to your routine, try a night oil. The great thing about using an oil at night is that you can leave it to soak in. Some people don’t have time to let an oil properly sink in in the morning and then end up wiping it off before its done its job.
If you want your skin to look fresh and bright without makeup on. Or to have a perfect base for a great makeup day, prep is key.
Even if your beauty routine isn’t completely natural, try to keep your skincare as toxin-free possible - especially if you're letting products sink into your skin.
Living Nature is a brand from New Zealand who are 100% natural. We love their radiance night oil, which has been perfectly formulated for this beauty routine.
If you want to get hold of them in the UK then they are stocked by LoveLula
How to make your skin glow
Think of it as feeding your skin. If you give it lots of nutrients, it’ll thrive.
A key ingredient in this oil blend is Rose oil. Rose oil helps to improve acne and balance any rosacea. This will automatically help to boost the skin’s appearance.
But what’s even more important is that the Rose oil increases the skin’s permeability. This means that it will help the skin to absorb more of the products that you put on it. This will help it to absorb the other oils in the blend to make it more effective.
Here are the specific details about the blend and their benefits:
With finest Rose Oil to naturally stimulate your skin’s own collagen production, Rosehip Oil to aid cell regeneration and repair damaged skin tissue, Calendula to soothe and calm, nutritious Carrot Oil to revitalise and tone, Jojoba Oil to nourish, and Frankincense Oil to repair dry skin and heal blemishes.
How to use
- Before you go to bed, make sure that you’ve thoroughly cleansed your skin. Use a muslin cloth for gentle exfoliation to improve texture and help the oil to soak in.
- Apply one or two drops of the oil to your face or fingertips and gently massage the face. Work in circular motions increase circulation and remove waste products to help clear the skin. You want to move up and out with slight pressure.
- To double the effects, you can apply a light moisturiser underneath that'll get locked in by the oil.
- Leave it to soak in overnight and apply a light moisturiser in the morning.
You should see an immediate improvement in the morning but with regular use, your skin will get even better over time.
