Choosing a botanical oil to combat facial redness

Which botanical oils can help deal with redness?

They’ve been one of the big beauty trends for the past few years, yet botanical oils have been used for centuries in eastern civilizations! Boasting countless benefits (and we’re still learning more about them), plant oils can be used for different skin types, and some are recommended for irritated skin. If your skin is easily irritated and prone to redness, read on! Absolution tells you more about anti-redness botanical oils that you can incorporate into your beauty routine…

Why does the skin go red?

Redness that appears on the surface of the skin is the result of dilated capillaries. Many factors can be responsible, including changes in temperature, stress, strong emotions, smoking, drinking alcohol, and using unsuitable cosmetic products. But there are also some skin conditions that can cause redness or irritation, for example rosacea, acne, psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis. In such cases, medical treatment is often required, and specific anti-redness products must be used.

Anti-redness botanical oils

At Absolution, we’ve been harnessing the benefits of organic botanical oils for a long time! Rich in active ingredients and free from pesticides, these oils are bursting with benefits for the skin. Regulating, antioxidant, energizing, repairing, nourishing… There are oils to meet all needs.

The plant oils used in Absolution skincare products are cold-pressed to preserve all their qualities and are guaranteed free from chemical preservatives, parabens and endocrine disruptors. If your skin is prone to redness and irritation, a botanical oil could be just what it needs!

Which botanical oil is best for sensitive skin?

Both soothing and protective, Hemp oil is very rich in omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, and calms fragile skin. You’ll find it in our Le Masque Riche Réconfortant face mask, which gives your skin all the nutrients it needs. Evening Primrose oil, meanwhile, is rich in linoleic acid. It promotes cell renewal and helps to rebuild a weakened skin barrier. This oil is often combined with Jojoba oil, which has a soothing and repairing effect that calms facial redness.

Another oil recommended for reactive skin is Sesame oil! Rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, it softens damaged skin and helps it to regenerate. You’ll find it in our Addiction oil, along with Evening Primrose oil, which works to renew and revitalize skin cells, and 24 other botanical and essential oils.
