Is great skin all in the mind? Ask anyone with fine lines, wrinkles, dull or sensitive skin and they would probably disagree. Leading Spanish counsellor and addiction specialist, Tatu Cutillas has discovered there is a strong connection between what you put onto your skin and your mood, with certain ingredients having a negative effect.
After several years of research, Tatu created The MicroOil (£49.00 for 50ml), the first product from NeuroSkinFeeds™. The antioxidant-rich oil is based on the camelina sativa flower and has a calming effect on both the mind and skin. Key ingredients include:
- Camelina sativa seed oil – a strong antioxidant due to high vitamin E content; acts as an anti-inflammatory, calming sensitised skin, whilst adding moisture; boosts the immune system; packed with omega-3 fatty acids; suitable for all skin conditions
- Plukentia volubilis seed oil – protects against the damaging effects of sun exposure; regulates oil production; maintains elasticity; soothes and prevents inflammation; promotes softness, smoothness, and suppleness; hydrates the skin without clogging the pores; helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines; gentle enough for all skin conditions
- Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil – skin-conditioner which helps soften, nourish and hydrate; adds nutrients including calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, and vitamin E; replenishes and reduces dryness in the upper layers of the skin; helps reduce fine lines, adds moisture and relieves itching; helps to minimise signs of premature ageing and create a glow
- Squalene oil – fights off skin-damaging free radicals which contribute to the signs of ageing; balances oil production; anti-inflammatory; helps with skin conditions such as acne and eczema; helps to boost blood circulation, promoting the formation of collagen for firmer, plumper skin
These oils were selected for inclusion in The MicroOil because of their skin benefits and their positive effect on mental wellbeing. The oils contain ingredients such as tryptophan, a precursor for serotonin. Serotonin is a feel-good hormone and neurotransmitter which helps us deal with stress and feel calm and happy. The omega 3 also reduces inflammation in the brain, as inflammation can cause mood shifts, headaches and more.
As a multi-functional product, The MicroOil takes care of your skin, your mind and your mood – naturally.
