A Face Balm for the 40 Plus Woman February 24 2015
After I’ve had a shower in the mornings I’m looking to put on my facial moisturiser most of the time I will use a face balm but there are times I use the serums as I like to mix it up a bit for my skin.
Generally I find that my face is dry, from time to time I can have that T-zone thing happening but overall my hormones are settled and my skin tends towards dry.
With this in mind I reach for the mature age dry skin face balms. There are 3 face balms that are suitable for me within this category:
Rosehip & Pomegranate Face Balm – a lovely 100% natural selection of oils that will smoothe over my wrinkles, soften my skin and replenish the oils that I have lost. If I were looking for a lighter option I would go for the
Ricebran, Raspberry & Rosehip Face Balm this face balm is definitely our most popular of the facial moisturisers. The light texture on your skin is silky and the benefit of ricebran in harsh climates is an added bonus. Raspberry & Rosehip again add the extra ant-aging benefits as well as dealing with any skin repair / improvement that might be needed. If I were however looking for an Ultra Rich cream I would definitely reach for the Macadamia with Frankincense & Myrrh Moisturising Cream. Macadamia has long been touted for its incredible anti-aging benefits as well as it’s great ability to heal scars and soften skin. When you add to this the benefit of the Frankincense which is reputed to tone skin and the anti-bacterial and healing benefits of myrrh which can be useful for those middle age skin issues then you have a deluxe skin lotion.
You may know already or have noticed that once you got over the age of 40 your skin reduced the amount of natural oils it was able to produce for you. This is why it’s so important that we now assist it with the nurturing and nourishment that it previously did.
Tight dry skin though can often be the result of chemicals and toxins that are in many personal care products so be aware of what you are putting on your skin.
If you find that your skin is incredibly dry and tight then I would suggest perhaps you need to review what you are using on it or look at your diet and drinking habits. Remember we are what we eat and what we put on our skin does soak in, so I encourage you to massage on the good stuff and let your skin delight in the decadent oils provided by Mother Nature.
As with all of our products because they are 100% cosmeceuticals and not watered down a little goes a long way. For best results apply a small amount to your face, neck and chest area in the morning .
