With the cold winter months fully settling in, your skin probably needs some extra help combatting dryness. Here’s our tried and true six step solution to keep skin plumped and hydrated.
Cleanse without drying skin with our two step cleansing routine. First massage a couple pumps of our award-winning Oil Cleanser into dry skin. Rinse with warm water or remove with washcloth. Use on its own or follow with our milky Facial Cleanser to remove any residue.
Mist with one of our hydrosols to attract moisture into the skin. Our Toning Mist or pure Rose Geranium Hydrosol are ideal choices to minimize pores, hydrate and calm skin and to assist in oil absorption.
Moisturize with an oil or oil blend. We recommend the restorative serum for the driest skin. Argan Oil is ideal for those seeking to balance skin and Prickly Pear Seed Oil works to brighten skin and strengthen capillaries.
Seal in moisture and hydrate with an emulsion. The Face Cream works day and night to prevent signs of aging and deeply moisturize
Don’t forget our Eye Cream to moisturize the sensitive eye area. Kahina Eye Cream relieves tension, moisturize and strengthen the skin around the eyes.
For the most luxurious moisturizing treatment, use our Moisture Mask as a sleep mask overnight and wake up with a plump, moisturized, and brighter complexion.
THE SCIENCE OF ARGAN OIL
The raw argan oil found in Kahina Giving Beauty products is composed of a high percentage of vitamin E (more than three times as much as olive oil) and 80% fatty acids, including hard to obtain Omega 6 and Omega 9 acids. Other components key to promoting skin health include antioxidant polyphenols, phytosterol compounds, and squalene.
The antioxidants and fatty acids in argan oil work together to help stop inflammation and to protect and maintain skin elasticity, smoothness and radiance. Phytosterols help strengthen the protective skin barrier and are also antiseptic.
Squalene is a lipid that is naturally present in, and extremely compatible with, our own skin, which is why argan oil is so easily absorbed. Our body’s own squalene production declines starting at the age of 20 and replenishing helps skin retain its moisture, as well as supporting cell regeneration and oxygenation
