From improving fine lines to intense hydration, these highly-concentrated potions will do wonders for your complexion.
Read on to see why we think it's time you say 'YES' to facial oils.
They're Time Tested
While facial oils are definitely a hot topic right now, they are not new to skincare routines. Historians have proven that they played a significant part in ancient beauty regimens.
Aboriginal tribes have been using emu oil for 40,000 years (hard to believe!), and archaeologists have proven that the Egyptians have long used a variety of plant-based oils. Because while avoiding the sun is impossible, sun-damaged skin was still undesirable 40,000 years ago!
Those who came long before us knew the power of a good facial oil.
They Reduce Wrinkles and Fine LinesYears of basking in the sun and being outdoors can take a toll on your skin. Enter: facial oils.
Ingredients in facial oils vary from product to product, and many contain antioxidants which will reduce further aging. Antioxidants will also act as a protective barrier against free radicals in our air.
For reducing the appearance of fine lines, we suggest trying our O2 Organic Balancing Face Oil.
This luxurious oil contains high-quality organic ingredients, including green tea and geranium oil that reduce the appearance of fine lines and help plump and firm your skin.
They Are A Great Base LayerWhile the ingredients in facial oils differ from product to product, there is one thing they all have in common: they serve as a great base layer for your makeup and other products.
Because facial oils dissolve quickly on your skin, they penetrate deep into the skin which keeps moisture in and toxins out. This smoothing process creates a natural primer for your makeup.
Applying a facial oil at the start of your routine will fill in fine lines and plump up your skin so that your makeup goes on smoothly and evenly.
They Give a Healthy GlowA "healthy glow" is something we're all looking for when it comes to skincare. And a tried and true way to achieve one is with a great facial oil.
As we age, we naturally produce less oil in our skin, which can leave it looking dull. But aging isn't the only factor leaving skin looking dull: lack of exfoliation and hydration are two significant factors.
Whatever the reason you may be seeking a healthy glow, facial oils are your friend.
Facial oils return that healthy look and help restore moisture and encourage hydrated, glowing skin.
How to Use Facial OilsNow that you're thinking of incorporating facial oils in your skincare routine, you're wondering how to use them. Here's what we suggest:
- Start with clean, exfoliated, and toned skin.
- Warm a few drops of oil in your hands, which will activate the ingredients and allow for even distribution.
- Apply face oil by firmly pressing into your face and neck area.
- Finish with a face cream.
So, you’re equipped with the facts and know-how about facial oils, and we hope that you'll add them to your AM or PM routine. You're sure to be pleased with the benefits of these great oils!
