Facial Oils are the ultimate boost in your skincare routine. They have multiple benefits; from essential hydration to keeping your skin protected from environmental damage, and not to mention – the GLOW UP, youth in a tiny bottle!
What exactly is a face oil?
Face oils complement our natural oils; our skin naturally makes oils and lipids, which help prevent water loss from our skin and keep it hydrated. A facial oil serves as an extra level of protection and hydration for your skin, while strengthening and repairing the natural skin barrier.
Can a facial oil replace my moisturizer?
Facial oils are best used prior and in support of your moisturizer – they help keep water in but do not actually contain water themselves, so they don’t moisturize.
What does a face oil do for my skin?
First of all, there is a range of facial oils and they each benefit different skin types.
Here are the main benefits overall:
• They are rich in essential fatty acids
• Balance oily and combination skin
• They absorb quickly leaving no oily residue
• Moisture trapping
• Protect skin from environmental elements
• Strengthen and repair your natural skin barrier
• Assist with plumpness and reducing wrinkles
