For Nourishing Healthy Skin
As we move into the cooler months of the year, our skin needs to retain and maintain as much moisture as it can. One of the ways I achieve that is by the use of facial oils. Facial oils can be benificial to all skin types long as you select the properly and apply them correctly.
What are facial oils made from and why should I use one?
Facial oils are usually derived from botanical sources such as seeds, fruits nuts and other parts of a plant. They contain fatty acids, vitamins and nutrients that nourish the skin. They should be applied on top of your facial moisturizer by pressing it into the skin, to prevent water loss and to lock in hydration. It creates a nourishing barrier that supports radiant supple skin.
When should I use a facial oil?
Personally I like to use them at the very end of my night time skincare routine. At night, the skin heals and repairs it self while the body is at rest. Some people opt to use it during the day, thats a personal choice as well. During the day, I would want to put sunscreen over it, but it may roll off with white clumps and leave unappealing finish on the skin….
What oil should I choose?
When choosing your facial oils, look for ingredients that will be most helpful to your personal skin needs(besides moisture) Decide what it is you may want to improve. For instance:
For anti aging benefits, look for blends that contain oils such as Argon, Acai, Flaxseed or Sea-Buckthorn oil. For Calming and repairing properties look for blends that contain Chamomile, Black Currant, Evening Primrose , or Carrot oil.
