Facial Oils For Glowing Winter Skin
Glowing, nourished and hydrated skin in the Winter is a skincare priority. Because we don’t always have time for sheet masks and layers of product, I’ve discovered two facial oils that work wonders. In the past, I’ve talked about these three facial oils which I still love. All gorgeously indulgent with amazing scents. However, today I want to cover two facial oils that really promote glowing Winter skin and can be easily injected into both your morning and evening routines.
KIEHL’S DAILY REVIVING CONCENTRATE*
Don’t let the term “concentrate” put you off. This is a very lightweight formula, almost like a dry oil. I prefer to pat this into the skin but it also massages in easily leaving behind a radiant glowy skin finish. It’s nothing greasy or heavy and mixes well with a light moisturiser (if you need that added boost) or layers well underneath. I use this as a part of my daily morning skincare routine to boost and perk up my skin whether I’m wearing makeup or not.
With key ingredients of ginger root, sunflower and tamanu oils, this oil blend provides protection against environmental aggressors and free radical damage. They also work together to replenish the skin. This pairs very well with its hero partner, the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, to add that injection of nourishment and care into the skin at night. Although I love both products, I actually prefer this Daily Reviving Concentrate because of its light formula. There are not many oils I find suitable for daytime use so I’d highly recommend this one. And that’s coming from someone with dehydrated, blemish prone skin with an oily t-zone.
Ingredients: caprylic/capric triglyceride, dicaprylyl ether, dicaprylyl carbonate, squalane,canola oil,helianthus annuus seed oil,unsaponifiables / sunflower seed oil, unsaponifiables tocopherol,limonene,citrus aurantium dulcis peel oil / orange peel oil,coriandrum sativum seed oil / coriander seed oil,calophyllum inophyllum seed oil,rosa rubiginosa seed oil,citrus grandis peel oil / grapefruit peel oil,zingiber officinale root oil / ginger root oil,linalool,citral geraniol,malpighia punicifolia / acerola fruit extract
ZIYANDA KALAHARI MELON & MARULA FACIAL OIL*
At night, I love a luxurious oil to make my skin feel plump and juicy and “well fed” (that’s an odd term to use, isn’t it?). I am so in love with this antioxidant rich natural blend Ziyanda oil. It contains a concoction of oils that have been known to work wonders for the skin in terms of replenishment but also in aiding with skin renewal and repair. The latter is ideal if you’re looking to help fade acne scarring.
I find the scent very light and non-intrusive. It’s not a heavy, meaty scent that lingers in the air with richness. The oil itself is very lightweight but not thin and runny. Again, it's another almost like a dry oil formulation. I pat 2-3 drops into my skin at night. Massaging it in leaves the texture of my skin feeling beautifully smooth. This is recommended for normal, dry and mature skin types.
For me, I tend to use this as my moisturising step at night or, if my skin is feeling particularly parched and lack-lustre, I’ll apply a layer of a gel moisturiser on top. It does work well when mixed with other products though and if you have very dry skin, I’d recommend it for morning use too. It doesn’t leave behind a greasy finish, just a welcomed glowy one. I also love that the ingredients used in Ziyanda’s products are all ethically sourced, organic, natural and fair trade.
