The Ultimate Question...answered!

we answer the ultimate skincare question...
oil or moisturizer?

 

 

so many choices...so little time!

The ancient old secret of using plant based oils has made a huge comeback...but does this mean giving up our trust worthy jar of lotion or cream? There are two basic deciding factors...skin type and what you need from your moisturizer! There are some obvious variables (oily, dry, weather worn, anti-aging, acne battling)...and the not so obvious (anti-oxidants, AHAs, BHAs, glycolic acid. Here, we break down what you really need. The real question is, does your skin need oil or water?

Creams + Lotions...
Creams are multi-taskers! These powerhouse products can hold more ingredients than a concentrated oil (aloe, vitamins, glycolic and lactic acids). Texture is easier to play with..lightweight moisturizers, heavier protective balms, and more luscious night creams. Most creams are water-based so your skin will soak in the moisture leaving your skin hydrated and super soft.

Oils...

Cold pressed, concentrated oils pull out the natural healing properties from plants, flowers and herbs. They are packed with anti-oxidants and are great for targeting specific areas (such as dry spots, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles). Oils serve as a protective barrier for moisture preventing it from evaporating quickly. A little oil goes a long way...while creams often need reapplication.
