Anti-ageing Skin Oils.


Remember what I said in my earlier statements…Use an oil first on your skin at night as it penetrates deep then make it work even harder by using a serum or cream on top If you only use creams on your face it won’t work on the layers of skin…cream cannot penetrate the skin it just lies on top.

Sterols?
Sterols are a common compound found in skin cells.
Plant sterols are called phytosterols and animal sterols are called Zoosterols .
Zoosterols=cholesterol=cell membranes
Phytosterols=soy bean, food grains, vegetables, nuts and trees. These have a similar chemical structure to cholesterol.
Plant sterols have been shown to mimic the effect of cholesterol and provide increased elasticity and anti-wrinkling benefits and aid in the repair of damaged skin. Plant sterols have a similar structure to Cholesterol  sterols however applying cholesterol straight on to the skin results in acne and inflammation.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil
This oil is exceptionally rich in both vitamin E and sterols which help protect the skin from free radicals. Containing fatty acids such as Omega 3 & 6 makes this oil excellent for softening and healing. It is absorbed through the skin, regenerating and restructuring. The slight tightening effect makes it ideal for mature skin.

Borage Oil
                When the body is short of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), it can lead to skin dryness and other problems. This oil is a rich has high amounts of GLA and when massaged into the skin it restores the cellular structure of your skin. Really excellent for skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
Rosacea…It will help reduce redness by producing prostaglandins which stimulate the contraction of blood vessels and reducing redness.
Restores smoothness and increases moisture reducing wrinkles, fine lines and ageing.
Blackcurrant Oil
A natural remedy for acne and scars blackcurrant oil is another one of those oils high in GLA and great for all skin types. It is restorative and replenishing for ageing skin. Add it to facial skin, body and hands to help slow premature ageing.
Use all of these oils on hands and body, we so often forget about our hands and they are often used without thought I:e washing dishes, gardening etc. And quite honestly if you want to know how old someone is just look at their hands because in my experience woman forget to put in as much care and attention to them as they would there face…there hands need it more.
