Why we love using facial oils

Oils are wonderfully nourishing and hydrating for the skin but they also have many other benefits including anti-oxidant, healing, balancing and anti-microbial properties. Oils are beneficial to all skin types, even oily and blemish-prone.

Oils can be used alone as a hydrator, a booster in your routine, used at night, added to your moisturiser or used on any specific areas of concern e.g scarring or patches of eczema.

Here are some oils that we love and use during our treatments at re:lax.
