Comforting Cold Skincare, Winter 2016 Edition...So Far.

By Laura Medina

This scribe has been slathering, rubbing, patting, testing, and reviewing much-needed healing oils, balms, and creams, like no one else, in order to give an updated, comprehensive review of Winter/Holiday skincare when folks need it the most.

Now, the majority of people are suffering from minor baking and roasting burns, not only will be great to refer back to "Balms, Oils, & a Cream for Wrinkles & Minor Kitchen Burns, while Roasting & Baking."

Thank god, these healing oils and creams aren't only just good for scrapes, chopping nips, and searing burns, they make damn good wrinkle and fine line moisturizers...

The oil that started all trendy craze for healing and wrinkle "miracle" oils, Marula Oil.

Light and hydrating, Pure Marula Facial Oil absorbs quickly into the skin without a greasy after-feel providing immediate and long lasting hydration and improved skin elasticity. Pure Marula facial Oil by Marula Pure Beauty Products is the only doctor endorsed, scientifically validated facial oil, with 60% more antioxidants than the leading Argan Oil.

Pure Marula Oil is completely virgin, wild harvested, hand-selected, and cold pressed with no added heat or chemicals ensuring that its beneficial properties are captured in every bottle. This superior Marula facial oil leaves the skin soft and plump with increased firmness for healthy, beautiful, age-defying radiance.

EO® Certified Organic Body Serum 01 Revitalizing

As an soakable alternative to heavy creams,  this light, revitalizing body serum replenishes dry skin, leaving it silky soft and smooth. Sustainably sourced organic Palm Oil (Ethyl Palmate) creates a protective layer on your skin. The nourishing oils of Jojoba and Coconut are combined with refreshing Orange essential oil and Vitamin E to deeply moisturize skin. Packaged in a 4oz recycled blue bottle.

 Jojoba Company Australian Golden Jojoba Oil 85ml

Before Marual Fruit and Oil were discovered, there was good ole carrier oil, Jojoba.

The closest thing to human sebum, this is because sebum is also largely comprised of wax mono esters, the primary constituent of jojoba oil. In most cases, it can act as a substitute while giving similar or added benefits compared to sebum. 

Jojoba oil is non-toxic, non-comedogenic and non-allergenic. This means that it will not clog pores and will not cause any allergic reactions. It is also not an irritant, so it can safely be used around the eyes and on the skin. In addition to that, it does not cause a greasy feeling when used on the skin like other oils do.

It contains many different varieties of tocopherols which make up Vitamin E and many other natural minerals. Vitamin E is well known for promoting healthy and clear skin.

Jojoba oil is an antioxidant and protects you from the damaging effects of free radicals, which is believed to contribute or cause various chronic diseases and cancer.

It is antibacterial. Most bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus and the fungus Candida albicans cannot reproduce and die when they come into contact with jojoba oil. In fact, it is so antibacterial that it can be used as a fungicide to control mildew. 

REN Bio Retinoid Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate Oil

For those whose dry, delicate turn into crinkly, wrinkly crepe paper and can't tolerate real Retina-A, here's a more gentle alternative.

This synergistic complex of pure, potent, 100 percent naturally derived vitamin A, pro-vitamin A, and retinoid analogue combat the appearance of wrinkles, imperfections, and age spots. The complexion appears brighter, toned, and healthy without the effects of synthetic retinol.

Reduces hyperpigmentation by decreasing tyrosinase enzymes by 80% and melanin production by 50%

Decreases inflammatory cytokine (redness) by 40%

Reduces prostaglandins receptors (redness) by 26%

Increases superoxide dismutase (a natural skin antioxidant) by 189% 

This formula is for all skin types, including sensitive skin and especially prematurely aging skin. For optimal results, follow with your favorite moisturizer.

Don’t stop using the cream, just use it less.
