Ooh! - Oils of Heaven Organic Milk Thistle Face Oil


Applying the Ooh! - Oils of Heaven organic milk thistle face oil to the skin can be beneficial because of its anti-aging, soothing, and dark spot fading abilities. The 100% Sylibum Marianum content that comes from the milk thistle plant contains antioxidant polyphenols and flavonolignans which contribute to the oils reparative and soothing abilities when applied to the skin, but that is not all. The plant ingredient also has the ability to neutralise damaging radicals such as UV light that influences depleting collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid which all lead to visibly aged skin. Inhibiting enzymes in the upper most layers of the skin to counteract damage, studies have also shown that when applying milk thistle topically it can help fade discolouration without any adverse side effects. 

The Ooh! - Oils of Heaven organic milk thistle face oil content contains alpha tocopherol (vitamin E), phospholipids, squalene, and polyphenols such as vanillic acid and p-coumaric. The anti-inflammatory benefits are also ideal for chronic inflammatory disorders such as psoriasis, constitutional dermatitis, and acne. Finally an oil for oiler skin types and spot-prone skin because it wont block your pores while also having antioxidant benefits to protect (though always wear a broad spectrum SPF) and improving skin tone! The oil is a great substitute if you have tried other antioxidants such as vitamin c but your skin has kindly said no thanks and disagreed. 

Applying onto clean skin either on its own or over your water based serum, this is what i like to do so the skin is supplied with hydration (water) and nourishment (oil), i was amazed at not only how easily this oil spreads but at how quickly the skin absorbs it. I then follow on with my chosen moisturiser and sunscreen because this is a treatment oil i want it to be applied first and the oil to not disrupt the effectiveness of my sunscreen's protection. It does work well with other ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and retinol which is ideal at night if you do experience any dryness retinol products can cause then you can apply as your last step in your evening skincare routine.

The Ooh! - Oils of Heaven organic milk thistle face oil is priced at £19.00 and available here: Organic Milk Thistle Face Oil 30ml x Neil.
