It’s Almost Fall, Y'all !!🍁 

And I don’t know about you, but my skin is really feeling the change of seasons.  It’s so much dryer, more sensitive and doesn’t feel as nourished and resilient as it did during the summer.

What can we do? Let's talk about it?

The best thing you can do is reach for fatty plant oils (Carrier Oils) and oil yourself up everyday!

Carrier Oils, a.k.a. Vegetable oils or Fixed oils are the lipid (fatty) extracts that are cold expeller pressed from nuts and seeds. Think almond oil, argan oil, marula oil and jojoba oil.  They are made up of the kinds of molecules that help our skin stay strong, hydrated, moisturized and resilient.

These amazingly unique molecules are what we identify as essential fatty acids, or EFA's, vitamins, minerals, wax esters, sterols and other vital nutrients that are needed for our skin’s wellbeing.

As we age, our skin loses its ability to make its own natural oils that help protect and keep it lubricated and resilient.  So applying oils to our skin helps to actually replace the oils we’ve lost, and ensures that our skin’s barrier function stays strong and uncompromised.

Here are 5 Carrier Oils that are Best for Nourishing our Skin this Fall:
