There are certain ingredients that without us noticing they could give a positive or negative effect in our brain when it comes to our mood and state of mind, one easy example are perfumes they can make us feel sexy, happier, fresh or certain oils like lavender they could relax our mind and give us a better sleep, so here I’m going to share a face oil that I have been using and the results I noticed.
NeuroSkinFeeds is a new brand in the market that have a blend of oils in one bottle that work in the skin to keep it nourished but at the same time those oils send a message to the brain to release it from stress for example, all those negative thoughts and mood and stress end up manifesting themselves in the skin.

These oils were selected for inclusion in The MicroOil because of their skin benefits and their
positive effect on mental well-being. 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.
Now my experience, I used it on top of my moisturiser mostly at night to give an extra and have a better rest and it helped a lot during these crazy moments we are living, I have combination skin but sometimes it gets dry with a bit of rosacea this oil worked perfectly woke up with a nice glow, healthy look, didn’t clog my pores at all no bad reaction (my skin is very sensitive to many ingredients). So if anything of what I mention before sounded like a solution for you I suggest it to try it out, and this oil is vegan, 100% natural and cruelty-free.
