Oils and waxes in natural cosmetics have been MaiWistik's direction since the beginning. Why? It must be stated that they are the best supporters for your skin. Dry skin is no longer a problem for you if you become friends with the oil world.
Why is body oil important in skincare?
Oils have been around since the dawn of time, so it's only natural that they'd be the best skin-care support. Consume and add to your physical structure!
The protective lipid layer covers our entire body, regardless of the season. As a result, we're already oily. Lipids, which are natural fats that protect us from the sun, keep moisture in our cells and help to heal skin that has been damaged by scratches or wounds. Our daily habits, on the other hand, only remove the fat that is necessary. Hand washing, disinfection, the use of alcohol-based products, soap, and relaxing, long showers and baths in warm water are all recommended. Hot water strips our bodies of their natural oils, and the longer we soak, the worse our skin becomes. As a result, after washing, the skin has a "tightening" sensation, which is a very common sensation.
Ending your shower or bath with cold water, on the other hand, is an effective way to improve blood circulation and skin condition.
Effect of temperature
Cold weather improves blood circulation in the face and body, reducing swelling around the eyes and face. To avoid frostbite, however, the skin must be supported. It is beneficial to moisturize yourself at least twice a day. Some people, particularly young children and the elderly are more sensitive to climate change than others. Our skin's natural fat components decrease as we age, and our skin becomes thinner.
When it comes to your face, the skin under your eyes is ten times thinner than the rest of your face. It should also be well-supported and moisturized several times per day. We use lip moisturizer several times a day, and that's correct. However, I'd like to emphasize that the skin under the eyes is just as important and requires hydration several times a day. The simplest method is to use the same lip balm that you use on your lips. However, the composition should be checked; if the lip balm contains strong essential oils that may irritate the eyes, choose something else.
Use an oil or body lotion that does not contain water after washing or disinfecting your hands. Make sure to concentrate on all of the body's parts.
Water-based products are not recommended during the autumn-winter season, because the constant changes in indoor and outdoor temperatures cause water to evaporate quickly, leaving you with a constant need for cream throughout the day. Oils and waxes, on the other hand, help to keep moisture inside the cell and form a protective layer around it. Throughout the day, your skin is well moisturized.
How to choose the right oil?
Your fat production is regulated by oils. Many vegetable oils mimic the natural lipids found in our skin, which helps to improve and regulate the skin's natural moisture barrier. The oils are advertised for their absorbent properties.
Furthermore, if you have acne or oily skin, facial oil is a good option. Even many dermatologists claim that the oil helps reduce the skin's natural oil production when there is a risk of overproduction, no matter how strange it may seem. If you support the body externally, it won't have to do it on its own. Anti-inflammatory properties are found in many oils, which can help soothe irritated skin.
While terms like "organic" and "eco" refer to the cultivation of ingredients and are already well-known, "cold-pressed" or "unrefined" refers to the method of processing. Heat treatment or chemical solvents are the most common methods for extracting oil from raw nuts and seeds, and the result is refined oil. Both methods reduce the number of natural vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids in the oil, lowering its quality. Consider this process to be similar to cooking, in that even if you start with a healthy vegetable, its nutritional value is significantly reduced once it is cooked.
The oil you select must be cold-pressed. Because refined oil loses its strong natural scent and can easily add everything it needs, it is commonly used in the beauty industry. According to studies, cold-pressed or unrefined oil contains more antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E, and thus provides better skin protection than refined oil. Cold-pressed oils have a longer shelf life and can often be used without the addition of synthetic preservatives. Overall, cold pressing produces a product that is clean, strong, and efficient.
Using a body oil or face oil
When it comes to oils, it's also important to understand that different oils absorb at different rates due to their different molecule weights. For example, grape seed, almond, and hemp oils are quickly absorbed. Olive, jojoba, and argan oils are absorbed moderately. Avocado and castor oil are absorbed slowly. In some ways, all oils are beneficial, but knowing when to use which one depends on the situation. Evening bath rituals benefit from slow oils, but fast and medium absorption oils are better for quick morning rituals. In the winter, it's also beneficial to use oils that are slowly absorbed in outdoor sports for a long time. To avoid pore-clogging or soiling, it is always a good idea to wipe away any excess oil that remains on the skin.
It's a great way to moisturize your feet by making them oily and wearing socks overnight. If sleeping with thin gloves on is possible, the same can be done for the hands.
In our online store, you'll find a wide variety of oils, all of which are guaranteed to be first press.
