Using seasonal fruit and veg in your cooking is a great way to ensure you’re getting the right vitamins, minerals and nutrients from your produce right when it’s at its best, and right now, apricots are at the peak of their growth. Luckily, we don’t have to wait until May every year for apricots to make it into our beauty products and today we’re showcasing four products which are packed with them!
Apricots contain several elements which are very soothing to the skin, and this toner is the perfect way to calm the skin after a thorough cleansing. It can be used with a cotton pad or spritzed onto the skin for an all-over calming effect, and preps the skin, aiding the penetration of the moisturiser or night cream. It helps maintain the skins natural pH level, without the use of alcohol or other harsh detergents, making it perfect for sensitive skin.
If you want to get your skin clean to a professional level, then using a pre-cleanse before you cleanse your skin is a must. This Precleanse from Dermalogica uses apricot kernel oil, which is an excellent source of fatty acids, vitamin A and linoleic acid and helps to soothe irritation, nourish and moisturise the skin. It can be used all over the face and neck and will offer superior results against cleansing alone.
This eye balm harnesses the power of apricot oil, which is high in Omega-rich fatty acids, to recontour the eye area and give a firmness where it has been previously lost. It’s compatible with make up and can be applied wither before or after and also has a built-in soothing applicator to further reduce the signs of puffiness around the delicate eye area.
This product is a balm-version of the Dermalogica Precleanse and comes with a soft-touch, double-sided mitt applicator and exfoliator to help ensure a more thorough, professional level of clean. It uses apricot kernel oil as it does not leave behind a greasy coating, and its lightweight feel and exceptional rehydrating properties make it ideal for any skin condition. It dissolves make up and other dirt without affecting the skin’s natural balance and won’t clog the pores.
