When it comes to facial oils and serums, those with dry skin tend to rely on them for an instant burst of dewy hydration for skin; while those with oilier skin types tend to eye them with skepticism!
Before we go any further, let’s just bust that myth in the you-know-what!
Oil will not create more oil!
Yes, certain processed oils, such as mineral oil, may clog your pores and contribute to breakouts, but the oil we are talking about is brimming in antioxidants to take care of our oily-skinned guys and gals as much as our dry skin loves!
Today we wanted to shine a spotlight on beautiful guava seed oil, found in our Skin Superfood Serum.
This luxurious oil contains a very important fatty acid that is fantastic for ensuring the skin stays clear and perfectly balanced.
So if you want to learn more about it, let’s dive into the article, shall we?
Why does our skin love fatty acids anyway?
Fatty acids are the building blocks of all oils, including your skin’s natural oil (sebum), and therefore, it is absolutely essential for a radiant and glowing complexion.
There are two fatty acids naturally present in our skin, namely linoleic acid and oleic acid, but today we want to tell you more about linoleic acid because this one can be found in guava seed oil.
Oily skin types often have lower levels of naturally occurring linoleic acid in their skin so it is important to increase levels through an oil rich in this important fatty acid.
How can Linoleic acid help my skin?
Linoleic acid is a wonderful fatty acid for helping to balance excess sebum, while still ensuring the skin stays perfectly moisturized by encouraging the formation of ceramides, one of the skin’s primary moisturizing elements.
Linoleic acid strengthens the skin’s barrier, essential for healthy skin as this ensures water cannot escape through the pores and pollutants cannot enter.
Guava Seed Oil
Guava seed oil is bursting in potent antioxidants, including Vitamins A, C, and E, all of which work beautifully together to repair, brighten, and strengthen the skin while fighting off and neutralizing aging free radicals.
Of course, these fantastic antioxidants along with linoleic acid make this oil one you will want to introduce to your skin, whether it’s dry or oily!
Guava seed oil never feels thick or heavy, it is lightweight yet wonderfully hydrating and absorbs fully.
Your skin deserves the best and that’s what you can expect for it when you treat it to our beautiful Skin Superfood Serum!
