The low down on face oils. There is something terrifying in the eyes of customers when I suggest using a face oil on their face. It is noticeable instantly. The gasp of air, the holding of the breath, and then finally the, "Oil?? on my face?" YESSSSSS!!!!
The facts are that oils are actually good for our skin. Throw away all the old marketing ploys of stirpping the oil off your face to have flawless beautiful skin. Here are some solid facts to consider.
1. Facial Oils Moisturize Dry Skin
Facial oils are better at moisturizing while nourishing the skin than lotions and creams. Most moisturizers are water based, and have a good place in skin care because our skin needs water. But to really achieve optimal effectiveness, face oils win, hands down. If your skin is dry, flaky and rough, like during winter months, oils replenish the skins natural oil content, form a healthy temporary barrier between you skin and the environmental elements of harsh weather, and will go to work almost instantly!
2. Facial Oils Reduce Wrinkles
As we age, the skin's natural oil production slows down, and this causes the moisture barrier to break down, the skin dries out, and wrinkles deepen as dehydration sinks in. Facial Oils restore, maintain and strengthen the moisture barrier and help lock in hydration. When the barrier is hydrated and restored, your skin can better absorb the nutrients in your skin care product or products. In turn, your skin is hydrated, and premature aging signs are reduced. Facial oils are full of antioxidants that help fight free radicals, that cause skin damage and helps delay the signs of aging.
3. Facial Oils Protect the Skin
What? Yes!! Good oils penetrate deep into the inner layers of your skin, trapping water, (good hydration) and fortify and strengthen the skins barrier as mentioned above, keeping out environmental pollutants, so the barrier the oils provide, defends your delicate skin.
Last but not least, the formulation must be done properly. Facial oils should be elegant, delicate and perfect for layering if needed, meaning, no greasy mess after use.
