It’s been very, very cold in Scotland for the last few days.  The central heating is working overtime, and the air both inside and out is harsh on the skin.  The area around my nose is red and sore.  Time for some intensive treatment.

This facial oil is wonderful for dry, aggravated, red winter skin.  It’s easy to mix and bottle, and it should last a good 18 months if stored away from heat and sunlight.  Simply blend the following ingredients together and apply as needed.

1 Part Camelina Oil – This oil offers wonderful soothing properties, as well as being incredibly mild on the skin.   It’s rich in vitamin E which will help repair winter damage.

1 Part Prickly Pear Oil – This oil has unbeatable hydrating abilities.  It penetrates the skin quickly to immediately relieve dry, irritated skin.  It’s full of antioxidants which help speed up recovery.

1 Part Oat Lipid Oil – When it comes to reducing redness and irritation, oat lipid oil is hard to beat. It soothes and protects the skin with its high beta glucan content.

I hope you enjoy this oil.  If you do try it, please let me know what you think.
