Why our Lux Glow Oil made of 100% organic Marula Oil is so amazing
Firstly – our Lux Glow Oil contains no fragrances or additives. The marula oil itself is so perfect it doesn’t need us meddling with the incredible, natural composition of this must-have skincare product.
Marula oil is simply teeming with anti-aging ingredients. We are talking packed full of Vitamin C and antioxidants. Marula oil has loads of delicious Vitamin E and oleic acid (one of the potent Omega-9s that is know to work hard on dryness, lines, and wrinkles).
The marula oil locks in moisture and has anti anti-inflammatory compounds that work together to fight free radicals. The marula oil will hydrate and boost your skin. Incredibly, the makeup of the marula oil means that using it will promote collagen formation and skin regeneration. It is even considered to have such powerful anti-oxidants that they protect against sun damage! But remember, SPF everyday, always, please.
Moisture, moisture, moisture
The emollients in the marula oil (Vitamin E, Omega-3 fatty acids, Omega-6 fatty acids, and Omega-9 fatty acids) work wonders on dry skin. It is super high in oleic acid (78% vs 83% in olive oil). This means it is an incredible addition to your skincare routine, adding that amazing hydration boost we love (especially in winter when our skin is more prone to drying out).
And something we think is really amazing about his wonderous oil – it does not clog up your pores. It is readily absorbed and while it can help you have a divine glow about your skin during the day, it will not leave you feeling greasy or oily.
Works to minimise acne
Yes, hard to believe that an oil can be such a saviour – but because marula oil is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and non-comedogenic, it can heal acne breakouts. The hydrating effect it has can also work to reduce inflammation and scars.
We absolutely love Lux Glow Oil as a primer. Because it moisturises but also absorbs quickly, it is the perfect base before makeup. It is lightweight and not greasy so it gives your skin an incredible glowy base to work with.
How we use it
We love this in all sorts of ways. Some favourites – as a top layer before sunscreen during the day to take advantage of that emollient effect and really lock in moisture (especially in cooler weather); as a primer (glow baby, glow), as a treatment serum before using our skincare tools, or as an overnight mask to have you waking up with that clear, dewy glow.
However you enjoy your Lux Glow Oil, remember that it is a luxurious and immensely beneficial oil. Enjoy every drop xxx
