The idea of slathering oil on the face is scary for most women (or men!), particularly those with oily skin. We get why most people would think twice about it, after all, oil on the face? Won’t that aggravate the skin and produce more oil?
The quick answer is no. On the contrary, facial oils not only restore skin’s youthfulness and glow; they also help balance your skin, delay aging and add radiance. So whether you have dry or oily skin, three to four drops of facial oil each night is all you need to wake up to gorgeous skin! Here’s 5 reasons why we think you should get over your fear of facial oils and start adding it to your skin care routine:
1. Facial Oils Work For ALL Skin Types
Contrary to popular notion that facial oils are best used by people with very dry skin, it will work for any and all skin types. Regardless if you have dry, oily, sensitive, combination or acne-prone skin, you will benefit from facial oils. Facial oil not only restores the tone and texture of the skin, it also soothes, rebalances and calms the skin. Argan oil and Rosehip oil are also known to heal acne and fade acne scars!
2. Professional Facialists Approved!
Professional has used facial oils for years and advocates the use of it on the daily. And if you’ve had a facial before, chances are, you already experienced the potent power of facial oils. It’s amazing how facial oil can transform the skin and give back its radiant glow, overnight! It’s the secret backstage weapon of models and celebrities to revive stressed out skin.
3. Encourages Facial Massage
Slathering on facial oil at night encourages facial massage. Massaging the face regularly helps relax and tone the muscle, relieve tension and remove stress in the face. Facial massage also boosts the blood flow to the skin and awakens the senses. Best of all, treating yourself to a nightly mini face massage helps the oil seep deeper into the epidermis. The result? Radiant, touchably soft skin in the morning! Not a bad thing to wake up to.
4. Cheaper, More Effective Than The Most Expensive Face Cream on Your Vanity
There’s no need to shell out a hundred or even two hundred bucks on super expensive night cream (we’re looking at you, Crème de la Mer). Just a couple of drops of facial oil and you get the same results. You will notice the difference the morning after and you didn’t have to spend more than you should! You can also mix your favorite facial oil to your day or night cream to boost the efficacy of both products.
5. Light, Non-Greasy
The idea of adding oil to the skin brings to mind super greasy skin before midday. But that’s just a myth. Most facial oils are so light on the skin that they can even replace your pricy day moisturizer! And unlike most face creams that take a while to absorb to the skin, facial oils absorbs easily, plumps up the skin instantly and leaves a dewy, soft glow, not the oily kind but the kind you see on the red carpet or the runways!
