Hello to this year's new savior, the Prickly Pear Oil.
This may seem counterintuitive, but as summer rolls around I rely even more on natural oils to heal and protect my skin. My skin type is combination: oily t-zone and dry everywhere else. Using a natural oil twice a day actually helps curb my skin from producing too much shine, leaving a balanced, dewy look all day.
My current skincare wardrobe spotlights the luxurious new Moroccan brand Ormana, which bottles pure, organic ingredients like Argan Oil and Prickly Pear Oil designed with natural beauty in mind. Every morning after I cleanse my skin, I dab a few drops of pure Prickly Pear Oil on my t-zone and any problem areas before my daily moisturizer. Prickly pear is high in essential fatty acids like Omega 6 and in the antioxidant vitamin e, making this ingredient a double duty hero for skin of all types. After just a week of use, my skin became so soft and glowing. To keep the rest of my body hydrated and smooth, I use Ormana's Luxurious Dry Oil every night before bed. It contains the beauty world's cult ingredient Argan Oil, along with Grape Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil for deep nourishment. I've haven't traveled all summer long without these products from Ormana!
I can't remember now if my natural skincare routine inspired my healthy diet or if it started the other way around, but nonetheless a natural skincare routine goes hand-in-hand with a diet high in natural, healthy ingredients and antioxidants for achieving your best skin. Even when I'm stuck in airports and in cities where healthy options are limited, I stay committed to the diet I need for the wellness of my skin and body by packing fruits, vitamins, and a green powder. If you believe in a well-rounded, natural lifestyle like me, then Ormana skincare is an intuitive brand to embrace.
