The word antioxidants gets tossed around a LOT in the skin care biz. And for good reason! Effective antioxidant use prevents premature ageing and keeps your skin healthy, bright and firm. Here’s how: antioxidants basically act as a bodyguard for your face. They neutralise pesty, unstable molecules called free radicals which are found in UV rays, smoke and pollution. And that’s essential, because free radicals are notorious for causing havoc on skin, and causing pigmentation, wrinkles and sagging. But with antioxidants? Your face is protected! Your skin stays healthy, happy and plump! And you don’t have to stress about those collagen-damaging, wrinkle-causing jerks.
The perfect way to let your best mates know how much you love them, while ALSO subtly encouraging them to compete for your love.

They’re not just suitable, they’re INCREDIBLE for oily skin. And here are four very compelling reasons why:
1. They hydrate! Which is a biggie ‘cos even oily skin can be dehydrated. And using a face oil is a speedy way to save thirsty skin.
2. Face oils are completely different to the oil your skin naturally produces. Completely! So using one isn’t going to make your face oilier. Using the right face oil will actually: revitalise, soothe and balance your skin.
3. They can regulate oil production. Oily skin happens when your skin’s natural oils get stripped away (from over-cleansing/exfoliating). This causes your face to freak and start over-producing oil. But! Using a face oil keeps you properly hydrated, which regulates your skin and stops it from producing all that oil in the first place.
4. Did we say four? We meant three. Soz.
