Welcome to Skin Care Saturday #1
In order to share the fabulousness of the Gorgeous Woman, Gorgeous Girl and ManOil8 skin care ranges, I have decided to start SKIN CARE SATURDAYS – a day each week where I share some information about the products, the ingredients within the products, their benefits, some history on WomanOil8 Australia (who produce these skin care ranges) and more!
If you’ve never heard of WomanOil8 Australia and their skin care ranges then this blog post will tell you all you need to know but meanwhile I can tell you that I believe in and love these products so much that I not only use them, but have become a distributor of them! They are 100% natural botanical plant-based skin care oils for your face, body and hair and they are deliciously beautiful! The blog post referred to above also contains a ‘Giveaway’ where you can win some free products. To enter is very simple and easy and you know that saying – “you’ve gotta be in it to win it”! It closes at 5pm (Brisbane time) on 22 February 2018.
As part of Skin Care Saturday’s I’d like to work my way through the 29 ingredients used within the products (A – Z), letting you know of their benefits. It’s one thing to see a listing of ingredients, but it is quite another to truly understand the benefits of each ingredient and how they will nourish your skin. Listing the benefits of each ingredient is something that the co-founder of WomanOil8 Australia and developer of the products, Anne McBride, is currently doing on her blog, so I will quote what she has said, link to her post, and add my own little bits of information!
Before we start, Anne has made a point that I feel is important to reiterate here:
Please note, I would never recommend that you use any plant oil individually for skincare. Oils are incredibly rich, nourishing, and restoring and can cause irritation, redness or even burning if not blended correctly with other oils. In a perfectly balanced blend, using a dozen or more plant oils, even the most sensitive skin will benefit.
So, today we’re going to learn about …
Apricot Kernal Oil (Australian)
(Prunus Armeniaca Kernal Oil)
Apricot kernel oil is extracted (pressed) from the seeds of Apricots (Prunus armeniaca).
Anne has listed the following benefits in her post as follows:
Rich in oleic, linoleic and linolenic fatty acids, which combat oily/acne skin, inflammation and dryness, while locking in moisture.
Linoleic acid balances oily/acne skin and strengthens the skin’s barrier function.
Vitamin A healing, restoring, leaves skin smooth and supple.
Vitamin E combats free-radical damage and inflammation. The oil’s unsaturated fatty acids enhance elasticity by making cell membranes more flexible. Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, anti-aging.
Vitamin C promotes collagen production, which gives skin extra stability and suppleness. Repairs sun damaged, dry, rough skin.
Apricot Kernal Oil (Australian) is an ingredient in the following products:
