BEAUTY TREND: OILS WITH ALOHA
Growing up, it was standard practice to look for the words "oil-free" when buying beauty products. Today, not so much. Beauty oils are everywhere and I'd recommend getting your hands on these concentrated concoctions. Essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and natural plant, nut and fruit extracts are just some of the power-house ingredients you can add to your vanity with just one little bottle. And despite what you may think, many oils are non-comedogenic (meaning they won't clog your pores). Along with moisturizing, nourishing, repairing and soothing your skin, these beauty oils feel and smell heavenly. Use all-over post shower, tame split ends and frizz, and even fight against acne by using a blend with jojoba oil. Below, my list of Hawaii-made beauty oils to use from head to toe!
