There is not a skincare product that gives a more luxurious feeling than a face oil. Face oils seem to deliver results for each skin type and/or conditions. However, the idea of applying oil on the skin may frighten some people; too much oil can cause problems, right? Well no, this is not the case. The right face oil can balance you skin’s oil production and prevent skin problems like blackheads, dryness or even premature aging. Lorde+Belle takes great pride of Radiant Face Elixir because we have created the best oil blend for every skin type. We have chosen potent ingredients to deliver amazing nutrients into the skin. Let’s take a look at those ingredients.
Radiant Face Elixir ingredient spotlight:
1. Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract- has been used for centuries by Asian women as a great ingredient to smooth, hydrate and brighten the skin. This ingredient is source of more than 100 antioxidants that protect the skin from environmental aggressors, ultimately preventing pre-mature aging, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and supporting skin barrier. The bran is also rich in polysaccharides and omega-3 fatty acids; great for moisturizing the skin, especially for those who struggle with redness and dry patches. Vitamin B, Vitamin E present in rice bran extract help with hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, acne, and aging.
2. Hippophae Rhamnoides Fruit Oil is another great oil found in Radiant Face Elixir. Also known as Sea Buckthorn, this oil is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B, vitamin E and numerous phenolic compounds that provide antioxidant benefit. Studies show that this ingredient carries 10 times more vitamin C than an orange and is the third-highest source of vitamin E among other plant oils. The oil from the fruit of Buckthorn absorbs quickly and has high cell-regenerating, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It is particularly suitable for mature skin because it helps with skin regeneration.
3. Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil - Carrot seed oil is one of the most powerful natural retinol alternatives. According to a 2004 study, beta-carotene acts a precursor to vitamin A when it's applied topically(1). This way, it increases cell turnover resulting in younger and healthier skin. Carrot seed oil is rich in beta carotene; powerful antioxidants that protect the skin from UV rays, pollution and stress.
4. Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract is an underrated acne treatment with plenty of science to back up its power. Rosemary's antioxidant and antibacterial properties make it suitable for acne prone skin as well as for those suffering from skin conditions like eczema(2). The biggest component of rosemary leaf extract, rosmarinic acid, has calming and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Other primary ingredients include caffeic acid, carnosol, and carnosic acid; amazing antioxidants that help reduce signs of aging, make the skin firmer and more youthful.
Every ingredient used in the formulation of Radiant Face Elixir is purposely chosen to have certain benefits on the skin. It helps to combat free radical damage, balance skin oil production as well as fortify the skin's barrier and reduce water loss from the skin. Radiant Face Elixir is superior to other elixirs in the market because it has a lightweight formula, doesn’t leave an oily finish and it’s suitable for every skin type.
