Whether you have rosacea,
contact dermatitis or skin that
burns, these are all common
types of sensitivity. Triggers
include chemicals in beauty
products, stress and pollution.
Fortunately, however, there
are oils that work wonders to
comfort and heal troubled skin.
'If rosacea is a concern,
look for soothing ingredients
such as chamomile and
calendula, as well as those
antibacteria ro erties such as
sea buckthorn,' says leading

'Potent ingredients such as
retino or g yco ic acid o en ound
in anti-ageing products, can cause
irritation. Argan and moringa oil are
perfect for soothing the skin.'

TRILOGYPRODUCTS.COM) is loaded
with antioxidant-rich maqui berry oil,
to help target free radicals, and apricot
oil to soothe irritation.

As you get older, your skin produces

seed and vitamin E not

brimming with lecithin,
a lipid that aids delivery
of nutrients to the skin's
deeper layers, which aid
hydration,' explains Jo.

'Warm three or four drops of oil by rubbing your palms together
before gently massaging it into the skin, starting at the centre
of the face, working outwards and upwards in small circular
motions,' advises celebrity facialist Nichola Joss. 'Work down
the neck and across the chest in sweeping motions, too.'
