Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil has a light-weight texture and quickly absorbs into the skin. Add a few drops of this wonderful oil to your skin care regime and tackle all skin problems such as acne, psoriasis, cysts and rosacea. Massage a few drops on cleansed skin in the morning or at night and see the difference.

Argan oil

Liquid gold or argan oil offers an array of benefits for all skin types. This oil is packed with vitamin E that helps repair damaged skin cells. It regulates sebum production and does not clog pore which is usually the main reason for acne and breakouts. The Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum soaks into skin and gives you nourished and radiant skin in the morning.

Rosehip oil

Enriched with Seabuckthorn, Rosehip oil is known as nature’s super healer. When applied on a regular basis, this oil improves skin tone and reduces scars and blemishes caused due to acne. It also assists in reducing pigmentation, age spots and other skin damage caused by sun damage.

Tea tree oil

Rich in anti-bacterial properties, tea tree oil kills bacteria and germs thereby preventing acne and breakouts. It seeps deep into the skin by unclogging pores and disinfecting them. Add a few drops to your daily moisturiser or your facial steam water to get maximum benefits.
