There is so much being said about the right skincare ritual, and selection of products that will help achieve our best skin yet. And among all of this, safety of products, clean ingredients, natural sources are soon becoming a top priority in the consideration set, without ever compromising on the efficacy. And one finds that there is almost never complete information available out there which can help us make the right choice.
One such mysterious product is the facial oil that always seems to have people wondering whether to accept it as an all-in-one wonder or to run away from it. So today at amaiaa, we decided to demystify it for you, so you know all that there is to learn about these amazing beauty potions.
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.
Facial oils can include any fragrant plant oils. These fragrances are not artificial and therefore absolutely safe for skin. Some oils are also non-fragrant plant oils, which work just as effectively. It really depends on the source of the oil, for example Rose oil or Jasmine or Sandalwood will likely have a fuller fragrance that have amazing sensorial experience, lifting one’s senses instantly while some oils, for instance, avocado oil might have no fragrance at all. Blends of essential oils, curated by experts, are known to have beauty benefits that surpass other regular beauty products.
