Is your skin trying to tell you something?

by Ellen Jenkinson

You might not realise but your main skin concern is probably not oiliness or acne, or dryness, but in fact - dehydration.
Dehydration is a temporary skin condition, not a genetic skin type. It is often found, in oily, combination or normal skin that is lacking water (not oil) which causes the skin to feel tight.
Dehydrated skin actually stimulates more oil production, which can potentially cause breakouts.
Those with acne prone or oily skin are more likely to suffer from dehydration, as they often choose to use harsh products which strip the skin of moisture (in a effort to dry out oil/blemishes).
Caffeine and alcohol are the main culprits of depredated skin. Can you relate?
Everyone needs a balance of moisture (oil) and hydration (water). This balance is the key to healthy skin and applies to all skin types, regardless of whether you’re 18 or 80. Use a skincare routine that does a better job at balancing out the water levels in your skin.
Choose your cleanser carefully. Use a face oil. Never skip moisturizer.
Our Best Selling Face Oils treat dehydrated skin and blemishes. They are Natural. Vegan. Cruelty Free. Each of our Face Oils has been developed in response to an overwhelming desire from customers to minimize their skincare routine and stabilize their skin. We think that the beauty industry tends to overcomplicate information and products in an effort to sell customers more - when really we believe all we need to do is slow down and take some time to understand, not overwhelm our skin. We believe in single, pure oils as the quickest way to return to and stabilize our skin's natural living patterns. Usually, there is an adjustment period (2-4 weeks) for our skin to recalibrate and get used to any new products, especially if it's simplifying our routine.
Face Oil #1 for adaptive, combination skin that needs rebalancing and glow. It is 100% Certified Organic Jojoba Oil. Its molecular structure is the closest to our skin's naturally occurring state - which means it is suitable for most skin types and that application can result in restored moisture levels. Our founder, Erika uses this product every day - it's super lightweight and easy to wear under makeup or on its own/with moisturizer. 
Face Oil #2 for dehydrated and dry skin lacking in moisture and needing a boost. It is 100% Meadowfoam Seed Oil, derived from the Meadowfoam Seed Flower. It's a thicker oil than Face Oil #1 and #3 and is more suited to dehydrated skin or as an intense, nighttime oil. It is one of the most stable oils available, in that its expiry date is longer than most - it can also be mixed with other oils to prolong their shelf life.
Get them together in the Triplet Set. A three-step routine for dewy, hydrated skin: Fluff Cleanser, Face Oil #1, Face Oil #2. Get 10% Off with code: FLUFF:HIFB
Face Oil #3 was developed for more mature skin types, and those looking for a natural retinol alternative e.g pregnant women or women looking to target lines and pigmentation. The hero ingredient here is Bakuchiol. It is light upon application with a natural, earthy smell (whereas Face Oil #1 and #2 are unscented). Face Oil #3 does contain Frankincense Essential Oil at a very small % which may cause irritation to sensitive skin. As always, pregnant women should check with their doctor before trying any new products.
These Face Oils all contain essential fatty acids, powerful antioxidants, and vitamins. Naturally rich in vitamins A, D and E these gentle oils work to regenerate skin cells.

For all oils you can use 2-3 drops under your moisturizer or apply liberally day and night on their own.

We also have a Sample Set (10mls each of our Oils) if you are looking to try and see which works best.
