Often our skin care routine can suffer when modern life takes over. Rushing to get to work, taking the kids to school, looking after a household and family. We are usually the last person on our list to get some self-care – including looking after our skin. I am often asked “What is the best natural oil for your face?”, so I set off to find a beautiful nourishing face oil, that is suitable for ALL skin types!
The best natural oil for your face
I have combination skin, and to be honest ‘ageing skin’ (those dreaded words). So finding and using a beautiful, natural face oil as part of my beauty routine was high priority.
There are many face oils on the market, so it can be hard to narrow it down to just one. What was important to us, was that it was suitable for all skin types, which then narrows down the field a lot. We were so excited when we came across the Paudha Healing’s Nourish & Repair Face Oil, and their gorgeous range of natural skin care.
Paudha Healing’s Nourish & Repair Face Oil is a unique blend of natural oils that have been carefully selected to provide maximum benefits to the skin, with minimal ingredients. The Nourish & Repair Face Oil is made using Jojoba Oil, Rosehip CO2 Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Helianthus annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Rosemary Extract, Essential Oils of Rose Geranium and Frankincense.
Jojoba oil is closest to the skin’s own natural sebum. It helps to modulate oil production, which makes it ideal for both oily and dry skin conditions. It also provides a protective barrier for the skin and is deeply moisturising. Rosehip oil is rich in vitamins A and E, which help fight the signs of premature ageing. While Calendula provides anti-inflammatory properties to calm the skin and reduce redness. The essential oils of frankincense and rose geranium also provide skin healing properties and a calming aroma.
Your skin will drink this oil up and be forever grateful!
The best natural face oil for dry skin
Although I have combination skin, it tends to be more dry than oily, so finding a face oil that worked for all skin types was an important item on my list.
I apply the Nourish & Repair Face Oil each morning before my make-up, and then use a Rose Quartz Facial Roller to reduce puffiness, improve skin tone and improve my skin elasticity.
I have oily skin, so I can’t use a face oil
So often I hear people say ‘I have oily skin, so I can’t use a face oil’, and they couldn’t be more wrong! By using products that are harsh and strip your face of natural oils, in fact means that your body will begin to overcompensate and produce even more oils. This then leads to the clogging of pores and breakouts, which is not what we want for our skin. Using an oil on your face can help you to balance your complexion naturally.
Natural face oil made in Australia
It’s important to me to try & support local businesses and Australian made where possible. So I absolutely love that the Nourish & Repair Face Oil from Paudha Healing is made in our very own Blue Mountains, NSW here in Australia. All their gorgeous skin care is lovingly handmade, making it extra special, and so wonderful to know that you are helping a family-owned and operated business. Paudha Healing are also a Vegan and cruelty free brand, and most of their products also using certified organic ingredients, which is an extra tick of approval from me.
How to apply the Nourish & Repair Face Oil
Using the dropper supplied, apply 2-3 drops to the palm of your hand and gently massage into your face. You can use the natural face oil in place of your normal moisturiser, or before moisturising for added hydration. It really is so simple & easy to include into your skincare routine.
The verdict – is this the best natural oil for your face?
I have been using this beautiful natural oil on our face for over a year, and we absolutely love it! I have put it through its’ paces during both the warmer and cooler months and have been impressed with its’ versatility. I like to use the face oil in a few different ways. Firstly, I apply a few drops each morning before I use the Rose Quartz Facial Roller. With their powers combined, the Nourish & Repair Face Oil and Quartz Facial Roller improve circulation and lymphatic drainage, reduce puffiness and enhance your overall skin tone and complexion. The coolness of the Quartz Facial Roller is just amazing…. and I always enjoy those few minutes of bliss each morning. I then simply apply my foundation over the top of the face oil, and it acts just like a primer. My foundation glides on after applying the face oil, and feels amazing.
I also apply the Nourish & Repair Face Oil after my evening moisturiser before I head to bed. This allows the face oil to assist in nourishing and repairing my skin each night. The Paudha Healing Nourish & Repair Face oil is the best natural oil for your face, and we would highly recommend it!
