Neal's Yard have a great range of Frankincense skin care products, which are most suited to mature or prematurely ageing skin.
The Frankincense range is extensive and it can get a little confusing as to which products are most suited for your skin. So I decided to write this short post to help you choose the best products for you.
All of the Frankincense products contain anti ageing ingredients plus the natural organic essential oils used in the formulas are also very useful for stress, anxiety and tension. When you apply products containing essential oils onto your skin, they are absorbed into your bloodstream and so have thereapeutic properties above and beyond skin care benefits.
Here is a summary of the different Frankincense products for mature skin:
Rejuvenating Frankincense - early signs of mature skin
Frankincense Intense - lines, wrinkles
Frankincense Intense Lift - lines, wrinkles and loss of collagen and elastin which leads to sagging skin
If you have normal or dry mature skin, I would advise that you use the frankincense cream cleanser, serum and a moisturiser.
If you have oily or combination mature skin, I would adivse that you use the frankincense facial wash (unless you just prefer a cream cleanser) and just one of the frankincense serums. During the winter time you could also add one of the Frankincense creams if you have patches of dry skin.
Neal's Yard frankincense products are available to buy individually and also as collections. There is also a mini "try me" kit available.
The Frankicnese anti ageing products I use:
I am 47, have fine lines around my eyes and wrinkles on my forehead and my skin type is dry/oily combination. I am a skin care junkie so do switch my products up regularly a) so my skin dosn't get used to using the same products all the time and b) because I love skin care products lol.
Anyway of the Neal's Yard range, I use the frankincense cream cleanser, toner, frankincense intense serum and frankincense intense moisturiser. These products cater to my dry skin and target my fine lines and wrinkles. My T Zone is not that oily so using the lightweight frankincense intense cream doesn't turn me into a grease ball. Whilst the Frankincense intense cream is lighweight and easily absorbed, it also provides me with sufficient moisture during the winter time when my skin becomes more dry.
