lets face it, many people have a fear of skin care that contains oil. This is where the “oil-free” craze in skin care came from. I even sell an oil free moisturizer for that reason. I get asked all the time. Do you have any oil free products? Well I have news for you, oil is not all bad. Our skins job is to adapt to environmental changes. Every time we strip the oils from our skin with our routine, our skin needs to kick oil production into overdrive in order to protect us from moisture loss and to re-balance.
What is the fear of fats? Fatty Acids are refereed to as essential because our bodies do not have the ability to create these fatty acids on their own. It has to come in the form of diet. Fatty acids (lipids) protect the skin from weather changes, sun exposure, pollution, and other free radical sources. Since these lipids have such and important function in creating a barrier and protecting the skin. With a strong barrier the skin is less exsposed thus resists aging effectively.
