One Product, 3 Uses: Palmer's Face Oil

3 uses for Palmer's Facial Oil

As I've been getting more into oils for skincare, I tried and tested a few of them so it was only a matter of time before I "discovered" a couple more uses than it is originally marketed for, making it a very versatile product. 

Last year I got my hands on the Palmer's Facial Oil, which is a facial oil meant to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone and ageing skin. These are the 3 ways I've been using it:

1. Facial moisturiser, which is the most obvious one as it's what it was designed for. The formula with a mix of oils with high oleic + high linoleic acid content makes it suitable for both oily and dry skins. However I feel it is a bit heavy on my skin, so I found myself using it on my face less frequently than the next two other uses.

2. Bath oil: even though it comes in a tiny 30 ml bottle I didn't want it to go to waste as I wasn't using it much on my face. I only use about 3 drops in my bath water and I find that that is enough to make my skin feel moisturised afterwards because the oil spreads out onto a fine layer that covers your whole body as you get into the bath. If your skin is feeling very dry you could even add a few drops to your body moisturiser to boost nourishment. 

3. Scar treatment: last year I had to go through a laparoscopy which left visible scars on my abdomen. After my self dissolving stitches fell off I started applying this oil onto my scars, which has made them less red and visible, as well as helped them shrink a bit. I know they won't disappear completely but it has definitely improved them a lot.

Do you know of any other uses for this product?
