The winter months wreak havoc on our skin. From dry air to cold temperatures, there’s not much relief from fighting the dry skin battle. Many winter beauty routines tend to help dry skin but not completely eradicate it. That’s why we’re turning to beauty oil, the one product we know will work wonders and will help you find soft and supple skin even during the bitter months of January and February.
While many are hesitant to pick up a beauty oil because of the seemingly counterproductive oil component of the product, a pure and organic beauty oil actually works to balance your skin and reduce facial oiliness while moisturizing the rest of your face.
A few simple components make an organic prickly pear seed facial oil, like Sabrah Oil from Sunia K Cosmetics, a natural and beautiful choice this winter to reduce dry and flaky skin, not just on your face but on your entire body as well.
Combat dry winter skin with a combination of prickly pear seed oil, plenty of water, and healthy foods. Prickly pear seed oil works quickly to eradicate dry skin and restore your complexion to its natural glow.
Benefits of Prickly Pear Seed Oil Against Dry Skin
1. High Levels of Antioxidants
From Omega 6 and 9 to betalains, high level of antioxidants is a beneficial characteristic of prickly pear seed oil and they work to increase the moisture of your skin, protect your skin against the aging process, and remove free radicals from your skin cells.
2. Full of Vitamins
Although Argan oil is known as the top vitamin E based oil on the market, prickly pear seed oil has 150% more vitamin E and also contains a high concentration of vitamin K. Both of these vitamins are essential in any beauty routine, especially during the winter months.
Vitamin E helps fight free radicals in your skin and increases cell renewal, which leads to brighter and balanced skin. Vitamin K works to lighten your undereye dark circles and strengthen your skin so fewer environmental changes decrease its elasticity.
3. Fatty Acid Properties
Although "fatty acid" sounds a bit repulsive, in the beauty world they are the organic properties that boost the moisture of your skin, improve collagen production, and even help tighten your pores.
The fatty acid count in prickly pear seed oil is one of the highest of any beauty oil on the market, making prickly pear oil a natural choice if you’re looking to both moisturize and restore your skin to its youthful brightness and tightness.
4. Lighter and Easily Absorbed
Unlike traditional, lotion-based moisturizers, beauty oil has a much higher absorption rate. This means that your dry skin will drink in the oil almost immediately so you can go about your daily routine without having to wait for a moisturizer to skin into your skin.
Many of the intense moisturizers on the market are heavy so they’ll take longer to completely disappear, whereas a beauty oil, like Sabrah Oil, is so lightweight that just a drop will disappear in moments.
5. Treats Skin from the Inside Out
While many of the beauty moisturizers on the market treat the visible skin, prickly pear oil goes a step further and actually works to restore your skin cells. This process results in long-term anti-aging and moisturizing benefits for the skin.
Additional Uses for Prickly Pear Seed Oil
While prickly pear seed oil is known most for its amazing facial benefits, it’s also extremely effective in other beauty capacities.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil As a Hair Mask
Just one or two drops of prickly pear seed oil in your daily shampoo or a special hair mask will reduce split ends, moisturize your scalp, and restore shine to your locks. Use it as a leave-in conditioner if you’re tight on time or work it into a full pamper session at night.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil As a Body Moisturizer
Although we notice dry skin the most on our face, your entire body may be suffering from dry, itchy skin. Use a drop or two of Sabrah Oil all over your skin for a full-body moisturizer.
Non-Beauty Tips to Decrease Dry Skin
While prickly pear seed oil is truly a wonder-working product, there are a few non-beauty related items that can provide a great defense against dry skin this winter.
1. Drink plenty of water
Our skin is almost completely made up of water so if we’re not staying properly hydrated our appearance will suffer. Common liquids like coffee and alcohol will actually dehydrate your body, so if you’re a daily coffee drinker make sure to replenish your fluids with the correct amount of water for the day.
2. Invest in a home humidifier
You’ve seen one before, no doubt. A humidifier is a small device that will restore the humidity in a room. By increasing the humidity you increase the moisture of a room which will help your skin retain moisture all day long.
3. Don’t spend too long in the shower
Although this tip may seem a bit strange, the hot showers that feel so lovely in the winter are actually doing more harm than good. The heat from long, hot showers will considerably reduce the moisture in your skin and if you’re not restoring it with an oil or lotion it will cause long-term negative effects.
If you’re looking for an easy and quick way to repair your dry skin this winter, invest in a pure and organic beauty oil like Sabrah Oil. Use it all over your body, with special attention to your face, for a luxurious and moisturizing experience.
