Incorporating facial oils into your skincare routine can give you seriously envy-inducing, glowing results (even if you have naturally oily skin). Keep reading to learn the benefits of using facial oils, and how to add them to your skincare ritual.
Facial Oil Skincare Benefits
1. Locks in Moisture
Our skin produces a natural oil called sebum to keep itself hydrated. Facial oils make excellent moisturizers for our skin because they mimic our natural facial oils – the way our skin prefers to hydrate itself.
Because facial oils create a protective barrier, they’re also great for locking in hydration, especially on dry skin. We recommend dabbing a facial oil onto skin before bed, after apply serums and moisturizers. This will ensure that your skin stays hydrated all night long, and promotes healthy nighttime skin regeneration.
2. Protects Against Irritation
Well-made facial oils contain smaller molecules that are readily absorbed by the epidermis, where they add a barrier of protection against free radicals and irritants. This is great news for those with sensitive skin, which needs extra help to protect it against inflammation.
3. Smooths Fine Lines and Wrinkles
To diminish signs of aging, choose an antioxidant-rich formula with several types of skin-loving oils like our Anti-Aging Oil. This powerful blend of andiroba, camellia, rosehip, and buriti oils deeply penetrates the skin to moisturize and repair. The result? Skin feels smoother and softer and looks years younger.
For best results, pat one or two drops of Anti-Aging Oil into the skin in the morning or evening. Patting (rather than rubbing), helps the oil to further penetrate into the pores and work its magic.
