The Oil Boom: A Secret to Smoother Skin

Next Tribe face oil for smoother skin

“Oil me!” was what the Tin Man squeaked out in The Wizard of Oz, and when Dorothy and The Scarecrow administered a few drops, it worked like magic, right?

I took some time to get on board with this skin oil trend, but I have to admit that the Tin Man was onto something.

For years, I was afraid to use oils on my skin, especially my face, thinking (wrongly) that they would make me greasy, slimy, and possibly pimply. Now, I live for oils, slathering on products balanced with multiple wellness benefits, a veritable A to Z ingredient list from Argan to Zea Mays (corn) oils. My body loves me for it. My skin looks and feels smoother, less lined, and glow-ier. Oils have become my fountain of youth as my aging skin produces less natural lubrication.

While I’ve found that coconut oil is fine as a daily go-to, I’ve become devoted to Angela Shore’s divine oils from her lovely Jiva-Apoha (or “soul-healing”) collection. Not only does her Sundara face oil make me feel (dare I say, look?) younger, but it smells delightful, imbued with rose, lavender, chamomile and jasmine, among other essential oils.

At $110 for a 15ml bottle, it certainly isn’t inexpensive, but it’s made with the highest quality ingredients, minimizes and fights lines, improves skin tone and texture, and you only need a tiny bit at a time. Plus Angela is a modern day shaman, an Ayurvedic healer with a deep understanding of holistic wellness; this oil is worth it.

Colorado high and dry country girl here! Love oils. La Mer has a great oil for face/neck and Décolleté. And I love love Neutrogena Sensual Oil, used to be “sesame” oil, but hey sex sells. I actually love it so much I hazard packing it when I travel…
Thanks for the good advice Kimberly.

Summer Read: Pamela Druckerman’s Latest Is a Nora-Ephron-Like Take on Midlife

There Are No Grown-Ups, a recent collection of essays by the wry and wise best-selling author Pamela Druckerman, is just the thing for those of us who are missing Nora Ephron’s stellar voice. This book offers up Druckerman’s take on life in her 40’s—with musings on how waiters suddenly know to call her Madame instead of Mademoiselle (she lives in France), and what it’s like to honor her husband’s unusual gift request for a big birthday (it involves a certain act, in bed, and not just with the two of them).
