January can be TOUGH on SKIN, so we’ve found three great OILS to help SOOTHE and MOISTURISE it. Best of all? They’re IRISH too…
For skincare that’s simple and effective, an oil is a good place to start: they’re versatile, work wonders on dry skin, and can lift your mood with natural fragrance. Not all oils are created equal: buy Irish as there are so many good ones available, including Yogandha and Voya. Here’s our pick of the best:
Modern Botany This multi-tasking essential for face, body, hair and nails is formulated in Ireland and will be made here from early next year. Ingredients are ethically sourced, and co-founder Simon Jackson, the botanist who’s also behind Dr Jackson skincare, is encouraging Irish farmers to grow ingredients like flax and chamomile. Look out for further launches this year. Fairly priced and high quality, this is our new staple. €35; www.modernbotany.com.
Flora + Fiona Dublin-based aromatherapist Fiona Hedigan has been making bespoke oils for private clients for years. Her first official launch is this blend of sweet almond, apricot kernel, jojoba and rosehip seed oils, ideal for ages 45-plus when skin becomes drier. From
€25 for 10ml. www.floraplusfiona.com.
Bare Chic Skin One of my favourite finds of the year, Fiona Carr’s Bare Chic organic skincare, made in tiny batches in Galway, is among the loveliest and most natural stuff you can put on your skin. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for now, and buy it online from early this year.
