Ayurveda, a natural Indian medical health system has been around for centuries. It has always been promoted as one of the best ways of balancing your mind, body and spirit.
That is why we recently developed two face oils in our newly re-launched skincare range, that can be used as both cleansers and moisturizers, specifically used at night – as our body’s do most of their repairing, healing and rejuvenating while we are asleep. They are packed with naturally calming, soothing, cleansing and skin-balancing oils, designed to give your skin exactly what it needs to keep it balanced and healthy.
I believe the reason people steer away from these types of products is that it’s very controversial to the public eye – Many people are under the impression that oil is more likely to block pores and will clog the skin. However, in reality, a good facial oil will be far more beneficial.
For example, our Harmonising Face Oil contains carrot oil, capsicum, vitamin E, Tea tree, Rosehip to name a few which are in a base oil of jojoba, which is very close to our own skin’s density. For more sensitive skins or those prone with high colour. On the other hand, our Special Oil contains Rosehip, hemp, saffron, and argan oil. They are designed to be used to cleanse the skin so you get the maximum therapeutic benefit of the oils. So, in a funny way, they are better for you.
As holistic therapists, over the past 40 years, we see the wonderful changes face oils can bring about not only to the skin but also to a person’s well being. Our Special Oil (£35.00) and the Harmonising Face Oil (£29.99) have proven to be our most popular products.
In fact, we have recently updated the oil products and are seeing amazing results from our amazing customers! For the right targets, these two products are perfect additions to your skincare routine, as well as excellent uses for massages and facials at home! Facial oils, including our own, are essential for anyone who’s skin could use a boost of nourishing, smoothing renewal or for attacking the disturbances on your skin.
Who Should Use Facial Oils?
If your skin is more sensitive, less is more so don’t use an oil with too many combinations. Bharti’s Special Oil is a favourite amongst those with more sensitive skin that may be prone to high colour, whereas those with more oily or problematic skin really feel the benefits from our Harmonizing Face Oil. Almond or coconut oils are also good alternatives. Coconut Oil is particularly therapeutic for the scalp.
How Do I Know If I Should Use Facial Oils?
Just like any other skincare product, the only way you will know if a product will benefit you is to try it! With natural caution, incorporate it into your routine and see how your skin responds!

How Can Skincare Affect Natural Oils In Your Skin?
Of course, it can sound counterintuitive to put oil on your face when your skin naturally produces oil anyway. The natural oils your skin produces plays a vital role in protecting the outer layer of your skin
by keeping you hydrated. For instance, one of the most common oils in your skin is called sebum – it’s a type of oily substance that is secreted by the skin’s sebaceous glands and contributes to the oiliness you notice on your face. There are also other oils and fats on the outer layer that prevent water loss in your face, without them your skin will be flaky and dry.
So, if you suffer from dry and sensitive skin, chances are you naturally don’t produce enough oil to protect that outer layer of skin or prevent water loss – affecting the hydration. However, an efficient facial oil is a great solution because it will not only help supplement the natural oils in your skin, but it will create a moisturising barrier that prevents any hydration loss. Aim for a product that contains natural oils including Jojoba oil and Vitamin E.
On the other hand, if you suffer from oily skin, that’s because your skin produces too much sebum oil. The most common causes of over-produced oil are either natural causes or due to the use of harsh skin-care products. This proves our point that not all facial oils are effective for you as they could be for a friend or family member. Different facial oils claim to combat different skin concerns, so it isn’t all about re-hydration or ageing! Tea tree oil, for example, helps control acne and breakouts whereas Rosehip oil is usually included for antioxidant benefits.
What makes the difference is using a skincare routine with knowledge, it’s not just what you use but how you use it too. Facial oils are very versatile with various functionalities that can benefit your skin. Facial oils have plenty of different functionalities that can benefit your skin. Our advice to you would be to be alert on ingredients, check reviews, and most importantly, identify the primary purpose of the product.
