- 9 February 2017
Skincare is the range of practices that help replenish, hydrate and nourish the skin, relieve skin conditions and enhance its appearance. They can include healthy diet, avoidance of excessive sun exposure, smoking, alcohol, stress and what is really important, the appropriate use of skincare products. Aromatherapy has a lot to offer when it comes to natural skincare.
Essential oils are readily absorbed though the skin, as they are lipid soluble, and ideally suited to skin care because they:
Essential oils have many therapeutic properties and can be easily incorporated into a base cream, mask, lotion, among others.
“While normal cosmetics treatment is symptom oriented and attempts to change the skin in one way or another, the goal of essential oils treatment is always the restoration of balance.

It is not the purpose of holistic essential oil cosmetics to encourage the expectation of miracles as promised by the mainstream cosmetic industry”
It is important to use cold-pressed, unrefined vegetable oils, because they have all the essential nutrients which are important for the health and vitality of the skin.
Please remember to take care of your skin daily. Daily skincare routine is a simple way of making sure that your skin is healthy and glowing.
