This time of year is so colourful and warming, the fresh mornings and cosy evenings really help with the transition into the colder months, with the only drawback being the toll the seasons takes on our skin.
Don’t worry, we have the perfect solution with our exclusive winter skin serum recipe, featuring none other than our Apricot Kernel Oil.
When you think about oil, the last place you would expect to find it is sitting in your makeup bag or on your dressing table, but surprisingly (and excitingly), that is all about to change. Not only are our oils pretty versatile in the kitchen they also carry many health benefits which can be utilised up in your beauty regime.
Avoid those skincare woes this season with the aid of your kitchen essential, from firming and toning to reducing itchiness and redness, we’ve got it all covered! We are going to let you into the secret of having nourished clear skin all winter long!
Apricot Oil is high in unsaturated fatty acids, Vitamin A and Vitamin E, and is an absolute skin-saving miracle. As it is a light and dry oil which immediately sinks into your skin, it can be used as a non-greasy moisturiser that can be applied to your face as well as anywhere else you please!
The dryness of Apricot Oil also makes it great for firming and toning and can be used simply on its own to gently remove eye makeup. Apricot Oil also has amazing anti-ageing benefits and can help with the reduction of dark circles, so no need for balancing those cucumbers slices on your eyes ever again!
The unsaturated fatty acids and Vitamin E in Apricot Oil help to promote youthfulness and suppelty in your skin AND the Vitamin K deeply nourishes your skin and allows nutrients to reach your blood cells. It’s the oil that keeps on giving!
So without further ado, here is your winter skin serum recipe! You can adapt this mixture to suit your own tastes, but by combining our Apricot Kernel oil with essential oils and argan oil you can create your own hormone free, paraben free, and 100% pure anti-ageing serum… A polite warning, this may be life-changing!
