The Oil Boom: A Secret to 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.

When did you start blowing out your ears? Was it at a concert by the Grateful Dead, Parliament Funkadelic, or the Ramones? You can peg many of us by which era of live music left our heads ringing. A funny thought for sure, but the damage is all too real and serious.
