OILS IN SKIN AND HAIR CARE


Oils were used in healing and nursing the skin for thousand of years, and fragrant essences were integral part of everyday rituals and religious ceremonies almost from the very beginning of mankind. For example, it is known that 6000 years ago balming of the mummies was executed with etheric oils, while in Cleopatras age there were as many as 21 aromatic oil utilized by women for aleviating stretch marks, wrinkles and cellulite, and wealthy Egyptians, tending and keeping it's youth and beauty, treated various skin conditions with the help of oils. From dry and normal to oily and mixed, oils are the foundation in the care of all skin types, due to their inner and outer nurturing. Given that the selection, as well as benefits, is quite enormous, it's up to us to choose the suitable one. I picked for myself Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse dry oil for face and body, L'Occitane Sublime Repairing hair oil and Nikel and Bio-Oil oils for stretch marks.

Purpose of body oil is deep hydration. It penetrates the deeper layers and provides intensive care and recovery while at the same time polishes the surface. Aside from ensuring required moisture and nutrients, oils acts like antioxidants, slow down the aging, creates the protective barrier and stimulate regeneration.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse is multifunctional body, face and hair oil apt for all skin types. Without mineral oils and silicones, it contains 7 nutritious constituents: nourishing and rejuvenating Tsubaki oil, softening and sweet almond oil, moisturizing camellia oil, anti-wrinkle borage oil, soothing hazelnut oil, cultivating macadamia oil and refreshing argan oil. Because of its demulcent effect it has gained followers globally and achieved starry status in the cosmetic industry. Primarily I use it for body care because it leaves the skin nourished, smooth, soft and scented, but also in several ways for my hair. The first one is that I apply it on the lengths few hours before washing, with the same result as If I applied it on wet hair before drying. Occasionally I employ it on dry hair just to gloss over and scent it. I have to mention that my hair is thin, but this oil doesn't weight nor grease it at all.

Although I've been avoiding using it on my face, lately I tend to that area more and more often. Specifically, I've found YouTube videos for solo face massages which can be performed at our house. I regard them excellent for retaining youthful and healthy skin appearance and preventing aging and sagging. If you don't have time or means to visit a salon or you just haven't found the right one, you can always do it at your home. It's very simple, it can be done every day and you decide how much time you are willing to spend. All you need is natural oil and Nuxe is one such oil. Now I use it regularly for facial massages and the outcome is gentle, even and radiant skin.


In addition to Nuxe Multi-Purpose Dry Oil, I also use L'Occitane Néroli & Orchidée Huile Parfumée Body Oil. This perfumed oil helps to nourish the skin and creates a fine finish with a seductive and hypnotizing scent, born from a delightful blend of orange blossoms and orchids. You can read a detailed review of this oil here.

Previously the hair oils were reserved for women with dry or curly hair, mostly because they produce a greasy film and weighten the hair, but recently they become very popular among wider range of consumers. Today's market is literally flooded with vast selection of oils for all hair types, even for my thin. They nourish, regenerate, protect and deeply cultivates the hair making it shiny and slick but simultaneously silky and dashing. All of the above is encompassed in L'Occitane Sublime Repairing oil which derives glow and feeds, renews and shields dry or splitted hair.

With 98% warily chosen natural ingredients, this bi-phase formula combines the power of 5 uniquely blended essential oils that reveals hair's innate beauty. Meadowfoam and jojoba oils smoothens the hair and in collaboration with provitamin B and omega 3 and 9 continuously hydrates it. I use it after washing my hair, in a way that I firstly shake it to connect all the constituents, then squeeze two doses and smear it between my palms and rub it on the ends and along the lengths and finally dry my hair with a blow dryer. The wonderful odor is constant for a long period, sometimes I can smell it when I return from all-day city outing.

In my teenage years, when I suddenly lost weight, the stretch marks appeared on my thighs. Since they're durable and difficult to get rid off, I accepted their existence and never stressed about it nor limited myself in wearing bathing suits. However, I strive to ameliorate that area and ensure additional care. I tried miscellaneous creams up untill the moment I discovered Nikel oil for stretch marks with tangerine, to which I've been faithful ever since and in turn it significantly improved my skin's complexion. Nikel is a cosmetic line launched by pharmacy master Mirjana Brlečić. Initialy she started the company Nature heals where she had a chance to meet numerous patients. Conversing with them about allergic reactions caused by products' ingredients, she decided to devise natural cosmetics without unnecessary additives, free of preservatives, artificial dyes and aromas, in another words healthy cosmetics with 100% natural components. That's how Nikel was founded and soon its quality was recognized by women in search for healing and nursing preparations. I'm a great fan of this brand and oil itself which delights me with 100% natural oils of almond, hazelnut and jojoba, without preservatives, parabens and artificial coloring, with high concentration of vitamins that offer everything required for fine elasticity and tonus.

Except for nursing and nourishing, it also prevents formation of stretch marks or, like in my case, relieves those already existing. It's advisable to apply it in the morning and/or in the evening on the entire body, with a special attention to places prone to occurence of stretch marks.

I place it on inner side of the thighs, but also on the stomach, back and along the legs. It quickly absorbs, leaves no trace and makes the skin tighter and plump. Fragrance is really beautiful, so far I haven't encounter a product with tangerine scent, which I adore by the way. It comes in a 100 ml dark brown bottle and is one of my favorite Nikel products.

In my personal routine I included Bio-Oil oil that is recommendable for scars, stretch marks, uneven, older or dehydrated skin. PurCellin Oil reduces density of the formula so it's more susceptible to imbibe and daub, which is why the distinction in relation to Nikel is immediately noticeable. Key ingredients of vitamins A and E and natural oils of marigold, lavender, rosemary and chamomile swiftly reaches requisite areas, and hypoallergenic formula is appropriate for sensitive skin of face and body. I practise leg massages with it because, as I saw on YouTube, I can exert them at home too. Even though I visit physiotherapist from time to time, the advantage of home massages is that I can do it while watching TV or listening to music.

As I’ve already mentioned, Bio-Oil is easily coated and perfect for massages, and after the treatment skin feels glib, balmy, nourished, tight and full. It’s gently pink colored and can be purchased in 25, 60, 125 and 200 ml packaging.

In the end I will yet again applaud to the beneficial effects of oils. Nowadays you can indisputably acquire multiform sorts of oils intended for all types of skin and hair. They are permanent and indispensable items in my daily cosmetic routine.
Do you use oils in your skin and hair care routine and if so, which ones? Do you have a suggestion which I should try? Have you tried any of the described? What are your impressions? Write me in the comments.
Best wishes till the next post!
