There is a misunderstanding with face oils. A lot of people think that they are greasy, oil and will leave your face looking like you have dunked your head in a bucket of oil – this is not true!
Oils have different densities, which means that some oils are heavy, for example Pomegranate Seed Oil is a thick, sticky oil, but others like Squalane (derived from Olives) is very light and thin and sinks deep inside the skin.
The key is finding the oils that work with your skin, not against.
The new SEB Gold 23K Gold Elixir Face oil is a light weight oil targeted to dry, ageing and acne skin. Yes this oil is the answer to all your skin concerns, anyone can use it.
Not sure whether to use a face oil well let’s first explore why a face oil is important to include in your skincare routine.
Why using a face oil is important?
Face oils provide the skin with moisture and locks in hydration because of this face oils are good for dry skin and can be more effective than lotions or creams.
Face oils create a natural barrier, this is because when they sink deep into the skin they trap water inside the skin and keep any dirt, grime or toxins out! Your skin will be appear “lifted” and plump which helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Don’t underestimate the power of a face oil as a make-up primer because face oils help to plump up the skin by targeting dry patches which means that your make-up glides easily onto your skin evenly.
Now you understand why face oils are important let’s explore why and how the SEB 23K Gold Elixir Face Oil can help you!
Is this face oil anti-ageing?
Yes! This face oil will help you achieve a youthful appearance.
This face oil is packed with real 23K Gold, Squalane and Bakuchiol which all have anti-ageing properties.
Gold repairs skin damage so if you have any scars on your face this will help to repair the skin layers.
Gold calms inflammation including redness and acne. The Gold in this formula works with the six natural oils to protect against toxins in the environment and is anti-ageing so reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Gold helps to boost the skin’s circulation meaning that there is a healthy supply of oxygen rich blood to the skin giving you a natural glow.
Squalane, derived from Olives is often used in face oils to hydrate and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This is because Squalane is easily absorbed deep into the skin and locks in moisture.
Bakuchiol, from the Babchi plant found in India, is an oil that has been used since ancient times in Ayurvedic medicine. It has healing, soothing and regenerative properties. Together with the Squalane oil the two oils work together to make a powerful, effective but natural anti-ageing ointment. Take a look at the image below for all of the Bakuchiol skin benefits.
