Everything You Need For a Summer Glow
RAYYAN, BEAUTY EDITOR | JUNE 8, 2022
If you love warm weather and a healthy Cali girl glow, look no further. No matter your skin type, facial oils are the ultimate skincare product to help you radiate from the inside out this summer.
There are many features to consider when implementing a facial oil into your routine. Firstly, we need to understand what occurs with our skin barrier function. Because the microbiome’s function is to protect our bodies from foreign aggressors, it can be difficult to find products that can penetrate deep into the skin. As our founder, Dimitri, says: Our skin is hydrophobic. So, it can reject foreign water to protect us. This is why facial oils with a light molecular weight are key to better absorption and maintaining your overall skin health — more specifically, our Divine Elixir Luminous Facial Oil.
We know from how we layer our skincare products during our routine (refer to our Order of Usage 101 article for all the scoop), the lighter the weight, the deeper the penetration through the skin’s barrier. This is why the Luminous Facial Oil is beneficial for your skin, especially with the hero ingredients of Manuka Honey and stabilized Vitamin C. Manuka Honey is wildly known and accepted as an ingredient that supports healthy barrier function and improves the skin’s microbiome. This ingredient is also an antioxidant; and some studies have shown that Manuka Honey aids in skin healing. We also know that Vitamin C helps to boost radiance, improve texture, and protect your skin from environmental aggressors like UV and UB rays — specifically Blue Light Damage. So, with the combination of these hero ingredients, the Luminous Facial Oil serves as protection and further aids your skin to achieve your ideal glow.
