What is a facial elixir?
A facial elixir is an oil based product that has the ability to penetrate the deeper surface layers of the skin (there are 6 layers of the skin that need to be nourished). A moisturiser is designed to keep the moisture escaping from the outer, surface layer of the skin. A moisturiser has larger molecules than a facial elixir which is why a moisturiser stays on the outer surface of the skin and elixir penetrates to the deepest layer of the skin.
A facial elixir is specially formulated with gentle oils such as Organic Almond Oil, Argan Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Calendula Infused Oil, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil plus more. Organic, cold pressed oils are extremely high in nutrients and vitamins which are delivered directly to your skin.
What are the benefits of using a facial elixir?
An organic facial elixir will assist in making your skin more nourished and hydrated as products are designed to penetrate deeply to the skins’ surface layers. By using it in conjunction with a moisturiser suited to your skin type you will find your skin will feel incredibly nourished and noticeably softer.
Another benefit of using an elixir is that you’ll find you may need to use a small amount of your regular moisturiser as the skin will receive incredible skin nourishing benefits from using a facial elixir.
How often should I use a facial elixir?
Recommended usage of a facial elixir is twice a day after cleansing and before you moisturise. Generally only a tiny amount is needed and if massaged into cleansed, warmed skin, the elixir will be easily absorbed by the skin.
