Top 3 Facial Oils For Glowing Skin
Prickly pear seed oil
This hero ingredient comes from the seeds of the prickly pear cactus, and is packed full of antioxidant and anti-bacterial goodies for your skin. It contains 150% more Vitamin E than argan oil, a vitamin that's important for encouraging cell renewal and reducing the appearance of fine lines. It's also a superb moisturiser, hydrating skin and locking in moisture. Vitamin K is another benefit: this helps brighten complexions and even skin tone, and is rumoured to also improve dark eye circles.
Oily or acne-prone skin? Have no fear: prickly pear seed oil has plenty of zinc, which works to calms acne, and reduce inflammation and excess oil production. It also absorbs relatively quickly, without leaving behind any greasiness.
Watermelon seed oil
Nothing quite beats a slice of fresh, cooling watermelon on a hot summer day, but did you ever stop to think about the seeds that get chucked away? You'd be surprised, but watermelon seeds are an amazing source of Vitamins A, B and E, which help to protect against free radicals, keep skin supple and brighten your complexion. It's a lightweight, anti-inflammatory oil that also works to regulate sebum production, making this oil perfect for acne- or breakout-prone skin.
Camellia seed oil
Camellia seed oil has long been hailed as a super ingredient in Asian beauty, bursting with Vitamins A, B, D and E – antioxidants that protect the skin and encourage cell repair. Because it's so rich in oleic acid, it's extremely moisturising and hydrating, which makes it the perfect solution for dry or mature skin. What's more, it's able to counteract the effects of hard water, making it a total godsend for us Londoners!
