Do you feel like your skin needs a boost? I don’t know if it’s just us Cornish outdoor gals but I often feel like my skin is ageing quicker than I would like!!
We have some 100% natural, chemical and cruelty free solutions that you can use at home to give your skin some TLC and help reduce the signs of ageing. Don’t blame us if you get ID’d next time you are buying some bubbles at Tesco!
There are so many anti-ageing products on the market but this can be an expensive mine field.
If you, like me prefer the more natural, simple approach then aromatherapy is for you.
There are a huge range of natural oils that can ensure that the skin is well nourished, protected from environmental damage and suitably moisturised.
Aromatherapy oils have a variety of skin care benefits including:
stimulating dead skin cell removal
stimulating skin cell regeneration
assisting with lubrication and moisturising
balancing sebum output (natural oil produced by the skin)
anti-inflammatory action where the skin is inflamed
antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic properties
astringent action, helping to close pores.
Essential oils can also help us maintain a healthy complexion by being used holistically to improve our physical and mental wellbeing .
Oils that are fantastic at improving ageing skin are:
There are also a number of brilliant carrier oils that are wonderful for ageing skin:

Let’s face it; an hour lying down in a quiet room is likely to make you look younger for a start!!
