Organic Face Oil - How to use oils in your skin care routine

Many people are confused about how to use oils properly on the skin.  When using oils topically on the face, it’s important to use and apply them correctly to get the best results. You can incorporate these oils into your daily routine easily and discover how clear, smooth and ageless your skin can appear.

Oils need to be applied differently to your skin than a cream or moisturizer.  Oils should be patted into the skin to ensure superior absorption of essential nutrients.

Place 5-7 drops of our Organic Face Oil into the palm of your hand and warm the oil by gently rubbing your palms together and then push and press onto your face and neck.

If using oil for the first time always “patch test” a small area of skin first to check for any possible allergic reactions. I recommend testing on upper lip skin or under eyes; those are the most delicate areas, if you are allergic a reaction will occur within 12 hours.

You can use it once to twice a day as a moisturizer and healing treatment for your skin problems. You will see benefits within 24 hours to several weeks of consistent use.

Green Tea Extract

Best For: Anti-Aging

Hasan Mukhtar, PhD, a professor and the director of research in the department of dermatology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.

Mukhtar believes, as do others, that green tea's antioxidant property is key to its skin-protective qualities. "Of all the antioxidants known to mankind, the components of green tea are the most potent," says Mukhtar. "Antioxidants are those agents which can counteract the effects of oxidant radicals." Oxidant radicals -- or free radicals, as they are commonly called -- are byproducts of the body that can cause damage to cells and tissues. Antioxidants bind to the free radicals, deactivating them before they can cause harm.

Most of the polyphenols in green tea are antioxidants by nature, have also been shown to function as anti-inflammatory and anticancer agents. Green tea has been shown to be the most effective agent against skin inflammation and cancerous changes in the skin.

In their review of the scientific literature, Mukhtar and his colleagues found evidence that the compounds in green tea protected mouse skin from cancer caused by sunlight. Additionally, his team conducted a few experimental studies on human skin, and found that the polyphenols in green tea also had anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties.
