questions about facial oils
What are facial oils?
Facial oils are those lovely magical natural oils that are extremely nourishing and emollient in nature and hence are great for delicate facial skin. They have excellent rejuvenating properties and quickly work to restore our skin’s health and glow.
Most natural oils are good for the skin, but not all oils can be used on our face. Every oil has a different property and density and is used accordingly. To make it simple, we can divide the oils into two categories: one is the ‘oily’ oils, and second is the ‘lighter’ oils.
The ‘oily’ facial oils
They are saturated and are very heavy. They hydrate the skin from the outside by way of occlusion, which means they lock in our skin’s natural moisture by creating a protective layer on top of it. Oils like olive oil, shea butter and coconut oil are some examples of ‘oily’ oils.
‘lighter’ facial oils
On the other hand, lighter oils are unsaturated and high in linoleic acid. They work from the inside by building the skin’s lipid layer, thus restoring its natural balance. Some examples of ‘lighter’ oils are argan oil, almond oil, grape-seed oil and jojoba oil.
Essential oils are a rich source of antioxidants and replenishing emollients. If you are new to facial oils and still unsure about their goodness, you can also add a few drops of essential oils to your daily serum or your moisturizer, and be sure to follow it up with a good SPF product, as sun protection is key.
Facial oils work best for people with all skin types, especially for dry skin. And once get used to the goodness of oils, gradually you can start suing them directly on skin. We believe you will never look back! Oils are a great way to boost the moisture and replenishing benefits of your routine. Oils are naturally replete with vitamins that repair and protect, which works wonders in healing dry skin or even reducing scaring caused by acne or any other stresses.
Facial oils are helpful for keeping skin’s vital hydration locked in and they have incredible, instantaneous skin-smoothing properties. Facial oils are for anyone whose skin could use a boost of nourishing, smoothing renewal, especially when seasonal cold or drier climates disturb your skin.
How to apply facial oils on your skin?
For best results, we advise to do this ritual twice a day: morning and before going to bed.
Step 1: Cleansing is the first step to healthy skin. Use a mild cleanser that exfoliates to gently scrub off dead skin cells and clean your face of all the make-up and excess sebum. This is an important step, as the oil won’t penetrate the deeper layers of yourskin if your pores are blocked.
Step 2: After cleansing, take about 3 – 4 drops of your lovely facial oil on your palm. Using your fingertips lightly dab it in small dots all across your face and neck area. Avoid the sensitive eye area.
Step 3: Gently use a patting motion to allow the oil to absorb into your skin. Followed by a gentle massage starting from the center of your face outward toward your hairline. Also, smooth it from the base of your neck towards your chin. Voila! You now have happy glowing skin!
Remember to always massage in upward and outward strokes. The light patting and massaging action improves blood circulation and allows the luxurious oil to be absorbed quickly into the skin. You can also use it by mixing it with your favorite moisturizer or layer on your moisturizer after applying the facial oil. Light patting post application is also a great trick to get that blood flow going.
Once you get comfortable with this ritual, you can experiment with different types of oils and see what you like best- both for results as well as sensorial experience.
Yes that is correct, oils have therapeutic quality to relax and rejuvenate one’s senses. After all, beauty should be inside out and overall wellness is number one priority.
Should you use Facial Oils with Makeup?
The silky, luxurious feel of facial oils make it a great skin care product to apply before your concealer or liquid foundation. If your skin is dry, flaky or has blemishes it can be difficult to apply makeup with a seamless finish.
Facial oils help your makeup brushes glide across the skin for a flawless finish, making it less likely to clump or streak. Facial oil can protect skin from harmful pollutants. When applied as the last step of your skin care routine and first step for makeup in the morning, facial oil can act as a barrier on the outer layer of the skin. Facial oil can help keep moisture in, thus ensuring your makeup stays intact longer.
