Oils fight everything including the signs of ageing, stretch marks and scars and there’s a type for everyone. In the run up to your wedding day, an oil is a great way of plumping skin, adding radiance and fading blemishes. Bath & Unwind reveal their top picks…
Not just for dry skin, oils are surprisingly beneficial to oily or acne prone skin because they restore the natural balance of your skin’s moisture level so any greasy areas are left less oily. If you don’t want to go too overboard, just add a couple of drops to your daily face or body moisturiser. When applying, warm up the oil with your fingers and pat over your skin. When putting on your face, remember that your neck is the first place to show the signs of ageing, so never forget to target that area.
A couple of drops is all that’s needed and it’s best applied after cleansing but before moisturising. Body and bath oils work the same way and repair and soften skin in a flash – when applying a body oil after showering, put it on while skin is still damp so that it can really penetrate deep into your skin. Versions for hair will treat over styled or extra dry hair, a great pre-wedding hair treatment to boost shine and condition. Leave overnight for best results and rinse off in the morning.
