The Power of Oils in Skincare
How To Incorporate Them Into Your Routine
Plant and botanical oils have been used for centuries in ancient cultures for their medicinal and cosmetic properties, and at Lina Hanson, we believe that they are one of the most effective and nourishing ways to care for the skin.
When it comes to skincare, there are two main types of oils: carrier oils and essential oils. Carrier oils, such as Jojoba, Avocado, Grape seed, Baobab, Camellia seed, and Marula oils, are derived from the fatty portion of a plant and can be used to dilute essential oils before applying to the skin or as a stand-alone treatment. Essential oils, such as Mandarin, Yuzu, Frankincense and Neroli oils are highly concentrated plant extracts and are used for their therapeutic properties. Both types of oils can provide many benefits for the skin, and it's important to choose high-quality, pure oils that are suitable for your skincare needs.
One of the key benefits of plant and botanical oils in skincare is their ability to support the skin barrier. The skin barrier is a thin film that sits on the surface of the skin and acts as a barrier to protect it from environmental aggressors, such as pollutants and bacteria. It also helps to keep the skin hydrated by retaining moisture. Oils can help to strengthen the skin's natural lipid barrier, replenish the skin's natural oils, moisturize the skin, and calm inflammation and irritation.
At Lina Hanson, we understand the importance of skin barrier health and that's why we have created two face oils that are specially formulated to support the skin barrier.
Beyond just hydration and supporting the skin barrier, oils can also address specific skin concerns such as dryness, acne, or aging. For example, oils that are high in antioxidants can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to aging. Oils that are high in vitamin E can help to moisturize the skin and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Our Global Calm Soothing Face Oil contains Jojoba oil, Avocado oil and Grape seed oil which work together to calm redness, nourish and soothe the skin, making it great for sensitive, or acne-prone skin conditions.
Our Global Face Serum contains Baobab Oil, Camellia Seed Oil and Marula Oil, which are great for dry, dull, aging skin. Baobab oil is rich in vitamins A, D, E and F, which are known to nourish and revitalize the skin while Camellia Seed oil and Marula oil are rich in antioxidants and fatty acids that help to moisturize and protect the skin from environmental stressors.
By using our Global Calm Soothing Face Oil and Global Face Serum, you can rest assured that you are getting the highest-quality and most effective oils that are suitable for your skincare needs.
At Lina Hanson, we believe in the power of natural, plant-based oils to improve skin health and that's why all our products are pure, organic, unadulterated and extracted using the cold-pressed method to preserve the purity and potency of the oil.
Our oils can be used as a nourishing facial cleanser oil, a gentle eye makeup remover, a post-shave soothing oil treatment, a moisturizer, used in combination with our Global Face Trio as a face mask, and in combination with other skincare products to enhance their benefits.
