Why Facial Oils are Good For Your Skin

Why use a facial oil? 

Every skin type can benefit from using a facial oil. In fact, even oily skin needs a moisturizer[1].  A properly designed facial oil can be lightweight, quick absorbing, and offer benefits of an effective moisturizer and barrier repair.  Skin naturally contains lipids and essential fatty acids; however, as we age less of these are produced and it affects the appearance of the skin.  No one wants dry, crepey, or wrinkled appearing skin.  A facial oil is a great way to add some of these lipids and fatty acids back to the skin.  Taking advantage of several different cold pressed plant oils with varying fatty acid profiles can create a super-powered and effective blend to get your skin glowing.  Moisturizers and facial oils can also compliment each other. Moisturizers draw moisture into the deeper layers of the skin and a facial oil works to lock in the moisture.  Added benefits are that using facial oils can enhance and preserve a strong skin barrier.  They instantly give your skin a glow and improve texture.  Relieving dry skin with a facial oil is a great way to treat yourself and your skin.  

Using a facial is easy, apply a drop or two as needed, massaging upward into the facial area, neck, and décolletage. 

For oily skin, this may be all you need, apply right after cleansing and let it sink in. 

For dry skin apply over your moisturizer to seal in the product and allow for additional benefits from the facial oil. 

Having trouble getting your foundation to easily blend in?  Try mixing it with a drop of facial oil.
