The Best Beauty Oils for 2020
Christmas; it’s that time of year again. You open your curtains to reveal a beautiful misty morning, with the frost glistening in the first rays of light. Frozen leaves crunch beneath your feet as you go for a walk and the smell of festive food drifts across the chilled air. Your outdoor excursion has left you bitterly cold, but inside the fireplaces are roaring and you warm your soul with a decadent hot chocolate.
Romantic, isn’t it? But we all know that it’s not all mistletoe and wine. Winter presents its own set of challenges, especially for our skin, which is why beauty oil should be at the top of your Christmas wish list this year!
Why Are Beauty Oils Important At Christmas?
It’s sometimes easy to forget how many external hazards our skin protects us from. During the winter months, these struggles become more apparent. The cold weather drys out our skin and indoor heating only makes it worse. What’s more, the temptation to snack on Christmas food grows, which affects our nutrition and ultimately the health and beauty of our skin. So it is imperative to find the best beauty oil.
Eating healthy Christmas snacks is obviously a great way to support your skin’s natural protective mechanisms, but topical treatment is just as important. Beauty face oils are a very effective way of providing your skin with some much needed TLC. Not only do they moisturize and strengthen your skin against the elements, but they also help rejuvenate your cells, helping you to look your best at the next Christmas party!
Top 5 Best Beauty Oils
One of the greatest things about having been a practitioner in the beauty industry for over 30 years, is having some of the world’s best skincare products come across my path. Based on effectiveness and value, here are my five top best beauty oil choices for the cleanest and most competent face beauty oils in America. They are all vegan, cruelty-free and eco-friendly. Either buy them as Christmas presents or treat yourself!
5. Elemis: Superfood Facial Oil
Elemis Superfood Facial Oil is what I like to think of as a one-of-a-kind, veritable farmers market for the face. Loaded with the antioxidants of rich greens like broccoli and kale, this lightweight beauty oil will leave your skin balanced and looking healthy this Christmas.
Priced at $55.00, this beauty oil is worth the money, but is the most expensive to buy on this wishlist.
4. Tarte: Maracujá Oil
Tarte Maracuja Oil gets its power to neutralize natural oil production on the skin from the magical maracuja (passion fruit) seeds. Super quick-absorbing, it’s a safe bet even if you have oily skin. Add this beauty oil to your Christmas wish list if you tend to be a little shiny.
3. Sunday Riley: C.E.O. Glow Oil
Sunday Riley is a pioneer in the clean beauty movement. My favorite is her C.E.O. Glow. The cold-pressed oil with high concentrations of Christmassy citrus and turmeric make it one of a kind in its ability to nurture and brighten skin. Plus, compared to some of the other best beauty oils on this wishlist, it’s quite cheap to buy!
2. Youth to the People: Superberry Hydrate & Glow Oil
I love this brand’s name, but more importantly, admire their wonderful fast absorbing berry-infused oil, with maqui, acai, and goji. The high level of Vitamin C present here is your skin’s greatest defense against free radicals and environmental damage, especially important during the cold winter months.
1. KINDri: Bloom Beauty Oil
Sometimes less is more. KINDri’s commitment to excellence and consistency in the green beauty world is reflected in our top selling organic, gluten-free best beauty oil, Bloom. There are just two ingredients: 100 % Organic Cactus (Prickly Pear) Seed Oil and the unprecedented amount of 4 % Apple Stem Cell (the highest available).
Why cactus oil? Prickly Pear Seed Oil has the highest amounts of linoleic acid, vitamin E and K – all hefty anti-aging ingredients - than any other plant. These also play a big part in moisturizing your skin and strengthening its natural defenses.
Why Apple Stem Cell? Scientists have determined that when this is extracted from the stem cells of a rare apple, known for its extraordinary longevity, it shows tremendous ability to stimulate aging skin stem cells. Subsequently, Apple Stem Cell has a powerful rejuvenating effect - superb for that Christmas party!
At just $27.50, Bloom beauty oil is the cheapest oil on this wishlist, making it perfect to buy as a stocking filler or just as a little treat for yourself.
