List of plant oils to protect the skin from the cold.

It is in winter, when the skin is harshly tested by the cold and sudden changes in temperature, that the daily application of a vegetable oil becomes essential. Directly extracted from plants, they nourish the skin and help restore the hydrolipidic film of the epidermis, preventing water from evaporating. Here are our top three favourites:

  • Theavocado vegetable oil for nourishment:

    Undoubtedly, avocado vegetable oil is the most coveted among vegetable oils, due to its highly nourishing and emollient properties. Rich in oleic acid, its primary benefit is to provide immediate relief in cases of skin discomfort, while simultaneously performing a profound effect on the epidermis, particularly by promoting its restructuring. Its concentration of phytosterols, active ingredients with antioxidant properties, also makes it an excellent ally against the consequences caused by prolonged exposure to the sun, which remains equally dangerous during the winter.

  • ThePrickly Pear Oil for firming:

    ThePrickly Pear oil is relatively unknown and particularly challenging to extract. Rich in Vitamin E, this exceptional oil combines nourishing and softening properties with a tightening effect, particularly recommended during winter, when temperature fluctuations can contribute to a slight loosening of the skin tissues. Due to its high content of essential fatty acids, it stimulates cellular regeneration, providing the skin with increased suppleness and firmness.

  • Therosehip oil for a healthy glow effect:

    It is due to its slightly orange hue that the rosehip oil provides an excellent natural means of brightening a dull complexion during winter. Particularly suited to dry and sensitive skin, its high content of antioxidants and provitamin A allows it to protect the skin from photoaging, reduce brown spots and the early signs of ageing. It is also known for its regenerative properties.
