I am in love with the Kahina product line; the facial lotion has completely changed my skin, which now is porcelain-like. As I try to incorporate more of your products into my routine (I also use the eye serum and the eye cream) I do not know what to do about the exfoliation part of it. I know the mask offers some exfoliation benefits, but are these enough to comply with that aspect of skincare? If not, do you plan on developing an actual scrub?
I was trying to decide between the eye serum and eye cream. Could you recommend which you think would be more beneficial for me? I am in my mid-30s and am starting to see some fine lines appearing around my eyes. I have 2 young children, and am pregnant with my third, so I am sleep-deprived most of the time with no end in sight. This unfortunately leaves me with some darkness under my eyes. Lastly, I am a contact lens wearer and have sensitive eyes if that makes any difference in your recommendation. Thanks for your help!
I use a day cream that has AHA and a Retin-A cream at night. Do I put these creams on AFTER I apply the Argan Oil? I’m concerned that the oil will block the other creams from absorbing.
I’m in my mid-fifties and nothing seems to be enough for my very dry skin. What would you recommend?
I have a very dry, sensitive scalp. Can I use argan oil on it? What are other uses for hair?
Keep in mind a little goes a long way. Hair products that are not pure argan oil contain a lot of other ingredients that dilute the oil. Less is more with pure argan oil.
For other hair ideas, a little bit of argan oil on the ends should do you, or you could make a deep-conditioning hair mask with avocado and argan oil. I myself like to mix argan oil with water and aloe vera, shake well, and spritz onto my hair- I have thick, almost coarse, wavy hair, and it helps revive the curl between washes.
What is an introductory regimen for normal/combination/sensitive skin? I am in my late 20s and beginning to notice fine lines around my eye area.
In your late 20’s- really at any age!- you should definitely take care of the eye area. Since you specifically expressed concerns regarding elasticity, I would encourage you to use our Eye Cream. It contains argan oil and sodium hyaluronate- both ingredients that help boost moisture levels and keep skin plump. It also contains antioxidant-rich white & green tea extracts– great to treat current & prevent future signs of aging. Aloe vera & sea fennel calm, and peptides help restore collagen (contributing to elasticity improvement).
To begin, I’d recommend Facial Cleanser, Argan Oil, and Eye Cream. This is a bare-bones regimen that can introduce you to Kahina.
Additional products I recommend are our Facial Lotion, which seals in the Argan Oil, and matte-ifies the skin for day. Our Toning Mist helps the oil absorb even more readily, while also being a moisture boost during the day. Finally, if you like masks, ours is multipurpose and for all skin types. It has antioxidant power, exfoliating properties, detoxifying properties, improves skin tone, and will not (like other clay masks) dry skin, thanks to a healthy dose of argan oil.
Can I use Kahina Giving Beauty products with Trentinoin?
What can I use for acne scars?
What Kahina products would you recommend for mature, acne-prone skin? I’ve been using topical retinols but would like to switch to a more natural, less harsh routine.
The new mask is really nice, smells amazing and has anti-bacterial properties to help with break outs (without drying on the skin). I would use it a few times a week.
Do Kahina products contain sunscreen?
We encourage the use of sunscreen in addition to our products and hope to develop a safe natural sunscreen to round out the Kahina Giving Beauty range. In the meantime, we hope you will consider boosting your safe sun practices with the application of our antioxidant and Vitamin E rich Argan Oil and/or Serum and our antioxidant-rich and Vitamin C enhanced Eye Serum and/or Eye Cream.
