Stay minty fresh with peppermint skincare

Pleasingly tingly, peppermint cools down hot bodies and acts as a gentle pain reliever thanks to the menthol occuring in the oil (sunburn anyone?!)

It makes skin brighter, helps headaches and nausea (perfect if this heat is making you feel queasy) and has amazing antibacterial qualities to keep those breakouts at bay.

2. Aloe Vera

The best ever sunburn treatment

There’s a good reason why nearly every aftersun has aloe vera in it! It acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish it’s moisture. Because of it’s nutritional qualities and antioxidant properties, the skin heals quicker.

The anti-aging beta carotene, vitamin C and E in aloe leaves help improve the skin’s natural firmness. Aloe is perfect for oilier skin  due to it’s non greasy residue.

3. Cucumber seed oil

Cucumber saves and soothes

A must have for sensitive, damaged or irritated skin. Anti-inflammatory properties from Omega 6 fatty acids in Cucumber Seed Oil are said to soothe eczema and psoriasis. It is rapidly absorbed into the skin leaving no residue.

A genuinely refreshing oil with a comedogenic rating of 1 means it suits acne prone skin as it is very unlikely to cause breakouts. It’s also light in consistency, rich in the antioxidants that are needed to fight off acne or bacteria.

4. Citrus fruit oils (lemon/lime/orange/grapefruit)

Citrus fruits are a rich natural source of vitamin C, which helps destroy free radicals in your body while providing a radiant glow to your skin and rejuvenating skin from the inside. Citrus oils provide exceptional cleansing benefits to the skin.

However, these oils not only cleanse, they can deodorize. Oils like lime and lemon enjoy popularity in deodorants or soaps as they also help inhibit odor-producing bacteria. They do a great job deodorizing armpits, feet, hands and controlling sebum production on an over-reactive scalp.

  1. I love using organic Peppermint oil for everything for moisturizing my skin. Rough knees and elbows, smoothing my feet and rough heels, cuticles and nails, chapped lips and I also use it for oil pulling.
