DIY Facial Oils for a Radiant Glow

I love a good oil made with beneficial essential oils for the fab results you get and the luxurious and calming feeling of putting it on at night. I am way more likely to spend more time on my skin with the application of an oil rather than a moisturiser or balm. You really feel like massaging the skin and that is a little bit of pampering in itself, especially as a night time ritual when you have time. I have found that massaging the skin is really great for the lymphatic drainage and also the muscle tone of your facial features over time. It has been proven to improve circulation and even prevent wrinkles. Well at least delay the ageing process anyway! That explains when you go for a facial, they always massage your face. Its also a relaxing and nourishing ritual. Just use circular motions and use upward sweeping motions to enjoy the rewards and gain optimum results when using your facial oil. Another great reason to try these is that they are all natural and cheap to make! read more

It really is a fantastic all-rounder and everyone should have this in their bathroom cupboard. It can be used to exfoliate, cleanse, moisturise, fix cuticles and tame brows.
