During the fall and winter I adjust my skin care routine to meet the ever changing needs of my skin. The cold weather can leave skin dry and chapped so I try to protect my sensitive skin. Instead of lotions in the winter, I prefer to use body oils. Oils absorb quickly and can lock in moisture, especially if you use them right after your shower. Lotions are often filled with mineral oil, wax, emulsifiers, preservatives and synthetic fragrances. None of those items can properly moisturize skin and in fact some waxes can even clog pores.
Lately, I’ve been using a new body oil, Zen Society Skin care Replenishing Macadamia Body Oil. This body oil contains Macadamia Nut oil which is rich with palmitoleic acid, this has been found to help slow the rate at which skin matures. Zen Society’s body oil does not contain any water so every ingredient is 100% pure and absorbed immediately into your skin. This body oil contains just four ingredients Sunflower Seed Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil Rose Canina Fruit Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil – all USDA certified organic, 100% vegan and cruelty free. Take a look at your lotion or body oil; do you recognize every ingredient? And if you can pronounce it, then you probably shouldn’t be putting it on your body!
The body oil is not scented, which is fine with me since I sensitive skin, it has a light natural scent of macadamia nuts, which I love. This body oil is lightweight and absorbed very quickly into my skin leaving it feeling silky soft and not greasy. Sometimes my legs get very dry that they feel itchy, so I apply this body oil and it’s so incredibly soothing and not irritating. It’s a very gentle product so I use if often on my temperamental skin with great results. I’ve also used this body oil as a massage oil, it warms up nicely in the hands and feels great as it’s being massaged in.
This is my first time trying Zen Society’s Replenishing Macadamia Body Oil and I loved it, I can’t wait to try some of their newer products. Have you tried any products from Zen Society?
