Skincare after travel: Review of NUDE ProGenius Rescue Oil
A great travel companion for perfecting irritated skin
Treatment for post-travel bleary skin
I recently traveled to and from Fiji, logging over 30 hours in flight. Skin really takes a beating under those conditions, not to mention days in the intense equatorial sun and in ocean spray. It's not surprising, then, to return home with a complexion that's a dry mess. That was the challenging environment under which I tried NUDE Skincare ProGenius Rescue Oil. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!
Facial oils are the hottest thing this year in skincare, but they're not all created alike. ProGenius Rescue Oil contains naturally antimicrobial ingredients, which could prove to be beneficial with breakouts and irritated faces. Bakuchiol from India is a natural alternative to retinol, which is a recommended anti-aging agent. Retinol has its drawbacks, though, so a natural alternative may be more gentle for you. Coleus root, rosemary and thyme extracts clarify the skin and help protect the outer layers, while organic rose hip oil smooths and nourishes the skin. The product is all natural and vegan.
This oil is perfectly sized for 3-1-1 carry-on travel bags/TSA requirements. It applies with an apothecary-style dropper. With the faintest herbal scent, it has the lightest weight, with good slip. You only need to use 2-3 drops for your whole face and neck.
When your skin is irritated from traveling, it would be understandable if you were hesitant about applying oil. After all, a heavy oil could cause sun-burned, dry skin to blister or become rashy. But a virtually weightless oil penetrates without being greasy.
