The Ordinary 100% Organic Virgin Chia Seed Oil is a natural, cold-pressed oil derived from chia seeds, packed with nutrients that benefit your skin. Here’s how this oil can enhance your skincare routine:
- Chia seed oil is rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid that helps strengthen the skin’s barrier function. This is especially advantageous for dry and sensitive skin since it helps maintain moisture and lower irritation.
- Antioxidants included in the oil help to shield the skin from the harm caused by free radicals. These unstable molecules can accelerate skin aging and lead to various skin concerns.
How to Use
- Use a little chia seed oil on your face and neck after cleaning and moisturizing. Based on your skin’s demands and tolerance, apply it once or twice daily.
- Apply a little quantity of oil and increase as your skin adjusts. Patch tests are recommended for sensitive skin before applying to the full face.
- Hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and retinol work well with chia seed oil.
- Always apply sunscreen during the day, as some skincare products, including chia seed oil, can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
