Bespoke Face Oils blended with oil soluble, bio active botanicals to soothe, hydrate, nourish and protect
“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do” Rumi

In keeping with my Bespoke approach to the skin I have, for many years, been blending bespoke face oils for my clients. I was fortunate enough to learn from the late Kolbjorn Borseth who instilled in me a lasting love and enthusiasm for oils for the skin. I do not just use oils but also oil soluble, bio active botanicals which blend well with the oils and have a positive and direct impact on the skin.

When you apply my oils on to your skin they are absorbed directly into the top layers of your skin where they instantly work to replenish the top layer of the skin and improve the lipid barrier function. I favour the omega rich oils which are known as “thin” and “dry” and therefore absorb quickly without leaving a greasy residue. They can make a noticeable improvement to skin texture, helping the skin to feel more nourished and hydrated as well as look more healthy.

My Bespoke Face Oils can be:
* Used as an overnight treatment
* Applied over a moisturiser to prevent trans epidermal water loss
* Used to provide slip for face massage
* Combined with the use of gua shas, jade rollers and facial cupping
* Used as a lovely added extra to your skin routine in the winter
* Gifted to someone as a lovely, unique gift

Benefits:
* 100% natural
* Prevent moisture loss
* Improves texture
* Are readily and rapidly absorbed the the skin due to their fine molecular structure
* Stimulate the skin to function more efficiently
* Soothing, protecting, nourishing, hydrating

If you would like me to make a Bespoke Face Oil for you please get in touch. I will email you a list of questions to find out a bit more about your skin so that I can blend an oil that will be of optimum benefit.

The oils I use are either organic or cold pressed. Many are from plants grown by local famers in developing countries who do not have organic status though they are not using insecticides or pesticides.

Below are some of my favourite oils:

Other natural and plant derived actives that I use in my oil blends:

Due to its anti inflammatory protective and repairing properties it plays an important role in the skins barrier function making it relevant to all skins. The micro algae in this extract is grown in purpose built eco facilities in Italy which guarantees the purity of the algae and doesn’t disrupt the eco balance of the oceans by harvesting it.
