If you have combination or oily skin you’re probably already saying you’ll never purposely add oil to your face. But hear us out - facial oils have tons of benefits. When integrated correctly.
Facial oils are tailored to work with your natural skin oils. Our skin naturally produces oils and lipids, which help prevent water loss and keeps our skin hydrated. The right face oil can help keep your skin balanced and add an extra level of protection and keep you acne free. Yes, you read that right.
Keep your skin balanced and acne free
It seems counterintuitive to put oil on your face when most of us don’t want to look oily – especially if we already happen to have oily, acne-prone, or combination skin. However, facial oils can actually help to balance excess sebum in oily skin types and can be gentle on sensitive skin.
Facial oils can help reduce your wrinkles because they contain essential ingredients like antioxidants and pass through the skin quickly, preventing water loss while keeping skin plump. Antioxidants also boost collagen production and strengthen skin elasticity – another anti-aging perk!
Get a natural-looking glow
Your skin may also look dull if your body is dehydrated during the fall and winter months, or if you haven’t had enough sleep. No matter the cause of dull skin, facial oil can help restore moisture and encourage glowing skin.
Remove makeup and dirt better than with a cleanser or facial wipe
Instead of using a facial cleanser to remove your makeup, first try applying a gentle facial oil with a cotton ball or your hands across your face. Then, with a clean, warm washcloth gently wipe the oil and makeup off your face. Finish by washing your face with your cleanser and pat dry. You can then apply a natural oil on your skin before bed to allow ample time for your skin to soak them up overnight - leading to reduced lines and wrinkles, increased firmness and elasticity, and brighter and even-tone skin.
