What does it do?
Itchy Skin Oil will gently soothe and relieve skin that has become irritated by the effects of chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments. It can also be used as a moisturiser for dry and itchy skin and is suitable for sensitive skin.
How does it help?
Itchy Skin Oil can do wonders for your skin. Its magic ingredient is Calendula, a soothing herbal macerate that has been shown to improve moderate-to-severe dermatitis (sore, dry, and itchy skin). This oil also has the added benefit of being rich in antioxidants which are great for your skin cells.
The goodness does not stop there! Itchy Skin Oil is full of beneficial oils to help your skin such as apricot kernel oil (which closely resembles the natural sebum produced in human skin) which provides healing power for irritated skin. We also include rosehip oil which can be easily absorbed into the skin, to rapidly soothe skin dryness and accelerate skin regeneration. Additionally, sunflower oil works to help skin to lock in moisture for longer and defends your skin cells against external damage such as dust particles and debris.
Another amazing ingredient that we use in our formula, is peach kernel oil which is known for its ability to calm inflamed skin. And if that was not enough, we enrich our oil with lots of Vitamin E to help with treating flaky skin. Use this oil if you want your skin feeling smooth and luscious once again.
How to use it?
You will only need to take a small amount of oil into your palms and warm slightly by rubbing your hands together. Apply in gentle sweeping motions over affected areas of your skin.Extra tip:
Ignore the itch – scratching can damage sensitive skin cells. Apply body oils to areas that you know are prone to itching during the day and throughout the night. Keeping your nails short can also help if you find yourself scratching in your sleep, but it’s best to avoid it as much as you can. Applying a cool compress such as a cold gel pack or a damp towel can help when you feel a burning sensation in your skin.
When to use it?
Although you can use Itchy Skin Oil at any time during the day, we suggest that you apply the oil before a bath or shower so that excess oil can be washed away. You need to be very careful about when you apply the oil. You should NEVER apply the oil before treatment, only afterwards and during breaks in treatment.
What to use it with?
You can use a light moisturiser (such as our Defiant Beauty Cleanse and Moisturise Balm), before applying Itchy Skin Oil to your skin to gently layer and lock in moisture.
For a lovely way to end the evening we recommend using alongside one of our gentle foot soaks., as a gentle massage oil by gently rubbing Itchy Skin Oil into your skin using small circular motions.What do our customers say?
