The unexpected natural oils your skin needs right now
Facial oils are a wonderful way to nourish your skin, thanks to universal benefits like hydration and barrier strengthening. You’ll be hard-“pressed” (get it?) to find an oil blend without argan or jojoba, but there are countless other under-the-radar oils that that can be used to address specific skin concerns in addition to delivering much-needed moisture.
Shea Terra Organics recently launched three new unprocessed, unrefined products that give seldom-used oils the attention they deserve—and they all contribute to preservation efforts and promote economic sustainability for women in the regions where they are harvested, which makes them even better! (And these are just three of the 30+ oils in Shea Terra’s expansive collection!)
100% Pure Kenyan Green Tea Oil: We all know the health benefits of green tea, and now your skin can get in on the action even if you prefer to stick with coffee. Ideal for dry and more mature skin, this skin-softening, radiance-enhancing oil packs a major antioxidant punch to help shield skin from damage as it smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
100% Pure Andean Raspberry Oil: Bursting with vitamins A and B along with skin-strengthening linoleic acid, this oil is perfect for all skin types (including oily and acne-prone) that that need hydration and protection from the elements. And it actually smells like berries!
100% Pure Egyptian Cucumber Oil: A lightweight, fast-absorbing oil that provides soothing and antioxidant benefits that won’t clog pores, this option is fantastic for balancing acne-prone and reactive skin.
If you’re a fan of switching up your skincare routine to address specific concerns at specific times, these oils are a great way to start a facial oil “wardrobe.” And at just $24 each, you get a lot of bang for your beauty buck.
