I absolutely love this time of year! With dazzling flowers in bloom and the sun shining bright, the weather is not too hot or too cold but just right! Springtime also brings with it the racing season here in Australia and what better way to prep for the big races (Melbourne Cup day in particular) than by starting with skincare. After all, the long day in the sun with a full face of makeup, day drinking and I don’t mean water, can be detrimental to our skin. Today we’re chatting about two essential beauty items by Lux Aestiva that I have been using to achieve beautiful glowing skin and get me race day ready. Prickly Pear Oil and Gypsy Oil Tigers Eye are two deeply nourishing dry oils that have been breathing new life into my skin.
Aussie-made Lux Aestiva produces natural artisan skincare and hair care products created using the finest ethically sourced raw ingredients, without the chemical nasties.
Lux Aestiva Prickly Pear Oil
The multi-purpose skin loving oil is rich in Vitamin E, unsaturated fatty acids, Linoleic acid, Vitamin K and the highest levels of Betalains (super antioxidants) which has powerful anti-aging effects. It is an intensely nourishing oil designed to fortify dry skin and diminish signs of sun damage, redness and hyper-pigmentation. It’s also formulated to help lighten and brighten dark under eye circles, tighten pores and prevent signs of premature ageing. As it works its magic to stimulate cell renewal, this beautiful lightweight oil can even be used to nourish fragile nails and cuticles. How to use: Night serum – warm 5 drops in hands and smooth over face. Under eye treatment – dab 3 drops under each eye.
All Lux Aestiva products are free of Parabens, Sulphates, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Synthetic Fragrance, Synthetic Colours, TEA, DEA, Glycols, Silicones + PEGs.
Lux Aestiva Gypsy Oil Shimmers – Tiger’s Eye
This shimmering fast-absorbing dry body oil is your best bet for the races on the big day. Not only does it provide a boost of hydration as well as enhance overall skin tone and texture, but it also contains natural mica particles which add a radiant subtle sun-kissed glow without looking streaky or patchy. The best part is that it is enriched with antioxidants, omegas 3,5,6 + 9, vitamins A, B, C, E + K, rich in protein and minerals. It contains a delicate blend of infused oil such as Neroli, Prickly pear, Meadowfoam, Camellia, Apricot Seed and non-phototoxic Bergamot making it the ultimate skin indulgence! How to use: Shake well and apply to the skin using circular motions, make sure to wash hands after use.
