Here in the northern hemisphere today is Spring Equinox meaning we experience a balance of day and night, equal amounts of light and dark. This Equinox marks a turning point towards more light. It is a time of year when we begin to experience more life force in our bodies and creativity in our spirits. We here at Olja are celebrating with a brand new batch of Balancing Face Oil, our Spring/Summer blend of Seasonal Face Oil. This batch is alive with antioxidant-rich infusions and extractions that will support vibrant and glowing skin through the light-filled half of the year, while protecting against UV and free radical damage.
During the warmer, lighter months, we like our raw oils to be rich in Linoleic oils. These oils are best for quick absorption, not clogging pores, hydrating the skin without a heavy or greasy feel and layer well with other products. Balancing Face Oil features our house made Calendula Infusions that are rich in beta-carotene and Vitamin A which helps combat photoaging, and free radicals that attack collagen and elastin. Antioxidants promote hydration and elasticity. Rosehip, Pomegranate seed, Red Raspberry and Grape seed oil pull double duty in being beneficial both pre and post sun care. These beautiful antioxidant-rich oils offer a wide variety of essential fatty acids. They are high in both carotenoids and flavonoids and have been closely studied for their ability to prevent UV induced skin damage. Honor the changing season by giving your skin what it needs to be healthy and radiant through the spring and summer.
