Rich natural oils like coconut, olive, macadamia and argan are the epitome of all-purpose, multitasking beauty products. If you're out to streamline your beauty routine without compromising on benefits, I can't imagine a safer bet. Oil is a skin (face or body), hair and nail cure-all. One thing to keep in mind when choosing your beauty oils is that it pays to look twice at the ingredients. There are plenty of beauty brands out there right this moment (haircare brands seem to be the worst offenders) that advertise pure, natural oils (which they do contain) but forget to mention the other preservatives, fragrances and chemicals additives that join the party.
If you need a place to start, check out these natural oil products that meet Beauty Is Wellness standards:
Kaé Argatherapie Pure Argan Oil, Body Massage Oil and Repairing Night Balm. Kaé's argan oil is just that- pure argan oil. Use this oil, an abundant source of Omega 6 and vitamin E, sparingly to nourish face, hair, hands and any lingering dry areas. There might not be anything as nourishing as pure argan oil applied to clean skin- it feels amazing! The massage oil is an essential oil-scented version of argan oil for body (try the citrus 'slimming' scent, great for stretch marks), while the balm is a rich argan and shea butter blend that will restore glow to mature skin.
**Tomorrow, April 1st, select Kaé argan oil products will be 50% off at HauteLook.com. It's a perfect opportunity to try out the brand!**
Amazon Beauty Rahua Finishing Treatment. This creamy balm is made with rahua nut oil that erases dry ends without greasy, heavy hair. Using it convinced me that natural remedies can more magical than any beauty product created in a lab! Work a small amount through damp hair for smooth, shiny locks. Expect to be running your hands through your hair all day in amazement. The line also includes shampoo, conditioner and an ultra-luxe (and pricey) elixir.
Intelligent Nutrients Anti-Aging Serum. This serum is actually a blend of over a dozen natural seed oils- red grape, carrot, cranberry, black cumin, pumpkin and red raspberry among them- known as the Intellimune Seed Oil Complex. Simply put, it's a powerhouse antioxidant blend for your skin. If you enjoy the earthy, herbal scent of this serum, you're likely to become obsessed with the entire skincare line.
