You’re familiar with what summer heat does to your skin, like sweat-induced breakouts, excessive sun exposure, or dull and dry skin from being in too much air conditioning. But the summer doesn’t have to wreak havoc on your face, and Prickly Pear oil is jam packed with ingredients that will actually help your skin.
But why would you want to load your skin with oil when you’re already battling sweat and sebum every day? Turns out that summer is perfect for your skin’s ability to respond to the handpicked botanicals in our Prickly Pear oil.
So just looking at the main ingredient, Prickly Pear, how could it possibly help your skin?
First, the oil penetrates to the deeper levels of the dermis, which makes it extra effective. Second, Prickly Pear Oil can help target skin problems such as eczema and heat rash, hyperpigmentation, severe dryness.
Add to that, there’s also pomegranate oil in the mix, which features powerful antioxidants that reduce cellular skin damage and increase cell regeneration. It also decreases inflammation, which benefits skin with acne or eczema.
Tea tree oil works wonders on dull, dry skin by reducing itching and irritation, plus it combats oily skin that tends to work overtime in the summer heat. Sunflower oil contains several compounds such as oleic acid, vitamin E, sesamol, and linoleic acid. It’s a highly absorbent, non-comedogenic oil that’s great for every skin type.
And there are 10 additional botanicals in our oil that all work so well to smooth and fight the signs of aging! The amount of skin nourishing elements makes it beneficial year round, and because it just sinks right into the skin, it won’t leave you feeling like an oil slick. You only need 4-6 drops, warm it up by rubbing your hands together, and press it into your skin after cleansing, while it’s still damp. When you’re done, sweep your palms over the backs of your hands because the skin on your hands needs love, too!
Add our Sunless Glow Drops, and you can still get all natural color and an extra dose of sun protection to your Prickly Pear oil. No sticky, streaky, orange mess - just great feeling skin with a light bronze glow!
Another great facial oil to try in summer is our Hydra-Boost Oil, which honestly will rock the skin boost to another level. For hydration, dewy-ness, and protection, the humectant properties of Jojoba oil plus the benefits of grape seed, rosehip, carrot, pomegranate, and other oils simply can’t be beat.
Hydra-Dew Spray is a great pick me up for any time of day or night, as well. A quick mist and your skin is hydrated, illuminated, and gives that cooling wash of relief that makes you feel like you just walked past one of those misting fans on the boardwalk.
With a natural glow this good, you won’t need makeup.
