Beauty Ritual: Face Oil
Posted on March 02 2018,
If you haven’t tried a face oil, you're missing out! For noticeable, immediate results, face oils are one of the best products you can incorporate into your beauty ritual.
High-quality face oils are typically made with 100% natural ingredients which is why their starting price points are slightly higher than your average moisturizer. But those superior ingredients are what deliver the extra dose of antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids that help your skin look younger.
For some, the idea of putting additional oil on their skin can seem like a strange one. But not all oils are created equal and the right one will never leave your skin feeling oily or greasy In fact, face oils can address many skin concerns, including excessive dryness and even oily and acne-prone skin.
Face oils are highly concentrated, so they typically require only a small amount to be effective. We recommend starting with three drops of oil and adjusting the amount from there depending on your skin care needs. Another important thing to keep in mind is application. Most people simply rub it in, but we suggest that you first warm the oil between your hands and then gently press it into your skin to avoid unnecessary dragging.
Unlike traditional moisturizers made with water, oil, and an emulsifier, high-quality face oils are exactly what they claim to be: Oils and nothing but. They act as a sealant, locking in the moisture from your serum or lotion, which is why oils should be the final step in your beauty routine.Tip: Want to quickly brighten up dull skin? Try dabbing a bit of oil over your cheeks, around your laugh lines, and under your eyes for an instant boost to your skin tone!
