Spend any lazy Sunday scrolling your Instagram feed and you’ll likely see your favourite influencers talking about an array of beautiful elixirs and face oils wrapped in gorgeous packaging. So, as you’re increasingly exposed to clean beauty, we think it's important to understand the true benefits of natural ingredients, including what they do and how they do it. Elixirs and face oils are the most talked about products in the skin care world, but what is the actual difference between them?
Elixir vs. Face Oil
Elixirs provide skin with a concentrated blend of active ingredients that specifically target areas of concern. From fine lines to inflammation to acne, our carefully selected botanicals absorb deeply to treat and improve.
Face oils contain various essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, and work in partnership with elixirs to nourish and seal in hydration while absorbing directly into the top layer of skin. As we age, we begin to lose our natural ability to produce sebum, thankfully the properties of your face oil improve lipid barrier function and mimic that process to help retain moisture and protect from environmental stressors.
The Power of the Potion
There are many benefits to combining our elixirs and oils together. It’s an all-natural way to create a perfect potion, by customizing the various properties of our elixirs and oils, creating superior all-natural nourishment. Face oils absorb much deeper into the skin when blended with an elixir allowing your skin to drink up all the key ingredients in a way that’s never too light, never too heavy!
The OM Protocol
Take a dime size of elixir in the palm of your hand and add 1 - 5 drops of face oil directly into the elixir. Use your palms to blend the products together before smoothing over face and neck.
Youth Infusion Age Defying Elixir & Rosehip + Black Cumin Seed Face Oil creates a potion that increases your production of collagen to tone and tighten, and clarifies your complexion while improving skin tone, texture and pigmentation.
We love switching things up and customizing our protocol based on the current needs of our complexion. Have you given it a try?
