Four oils to drag your skin out of the winter blues

Only three oils in this pic Caudalie, Tammy Fnder and Delarom

Man, oh, those winds, that cold crackling air is doing a number on your skin. It’s gasping for some hard core moisture, something that doesn’t politely intercede between your face and the bad effects of the frosty weather. It wants someone who will take plumpness back by force, with a fight if necessary. Oils are your answer to this conundrum.

Delarom’s Oxygenating Balancing Aroma has got something marvelous for you. A light oil that sinks into the skin with the elan of a cheerleader at a state game. The divine aromatic scent of bitter orange, lemon peel and hazel will relax you, while the oil promotes collagen production. It’s an intoxicating concoction for a healthy skin.

Caudalie’s Huile Divine is a newish panacea for all dehydration problems, whether it’s face, body or hair. A wonderful reinvigorating scent and a light formulation will make you feel infallible.

Tammy Fender’s Quintessential Serum is a great rose oil that leaves your skin glowing. It’s quite thick and moisturizing and has a lingering rose fragrance. Omega and Alpha-Linolenic Acid rich, with rosehip seed oil, avocado oil and evening primrose oil, this should perhaps be used by the hardcore dry skin sufferers. It gives one a glow but it’s a bit heavy-handed for the normal-combination skin.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse is already a cult product. Coming in 2 versions – simple dry oil or golden (for a tanning sheen), with a multi-purpose use on skin and hair, it contains essential oils including borage, sweet almond, hazelnut, St. John’s wort, camellia, and macadamia. So you can smell amazing while looking like a Aphrodite emerging from the foam of the sea. Get it from Escentual at 1/3 off during March.
