Before you're thinking you don't need a facial oil in your life, let me assure you that you probably do. Facial oils are beneficial for all skin types for numerous reasons. Let's see why you need facial oils :)
Although are quickly becoming fan favorites, there’s still some confusion around their proper use and multitude of benefits.
There is some common questions:
- Will it make me break out?
- Is it really an essential product?
In short, no! Face oils will not break you out. And, yes! Facial oils are specially tailored to work with your natural skin oils. Our skin naturally produces oils and lipids, which help prevent water loss from to keep it hydrated and elastic.
Face oils help to keep your skin balanced and added an extra level of protection.
Here are our top five reasons we love them:
1) Helps keep skin balanced – even for oily or acne-prone skin
Typically, when you hear the words "oil" and "skin" in the same sentence, it's a recipe for disaster. It seems counterintuitive to put oil on your face when most of us don’t want to look oily – especially if we already happen to have oily, acne-prone, or combination skin.
Facial oils can actually help to balance excess sebum in oily skin types and can be gentle on sensitive skin.
2) Seals in moisture and adds extra nourishment – especially for dry skin
While anyone – even those with oily skin – can benefit from facial oil, it can be especially nourishing to dry skin. Whether your dryness can be blamed on plummeting temps or regular dry skin symptoms, facial oil can help boost your moisturizer’s hydrating efforts.
When facial oil is applied after your moisturizer, it creates an occlusive layer to seal in hydration. Beside its super water-locking benefits, facial oil can also keep skin better protected against damaging free radicals. Our face oil make a fortifying final step, or can even be blended into your moisturizer for a nourishing boost.
Also help skin absorb other skincare products more effectively. So, if you’re not seeing the flawless skin you imagined you would from serums and moisturizers alone, an oil may just be that extra step to make it happen.
3) Promotes a healthy glow, especially for mature or dull skin
As we age, our skin produces less natural oils; this may exaggerate the look of fine lines. Facial oils can help reduce your wrinkles because they contain essential ingredients like antioxidants, preventing water loss while keeping skin plump. Antioxidants also boost collagen production and strengthen skin elasticity.
Our Amália oil are packed with essential vitamins, lipids, fatty acid and antioxidants for a healthy glow and silky smooth skin.
Made with a pure blend of plant oils, our luxurious oil treatment give skin an instant suppleness that’s kind of addictive.
4) Helps foundation apply more smoothly
The silky, luxurious feel of facial oil makes it a marvelous skin care product to apply before your foundation. If your skin is dry, flaky or has blemishes, it can be difficult to apply makeup with a seamless finish. Facial oil helps your makeup brushes glide across the skin for a seamless application, making it less likely to clump or streak.
5) Helps to make your nighttime products more effective
When facial oils are applied as the last step of your evening skin care routine, they can act as a barrier on the outer layer of the skin. Applying natural oils for skin before bed allows ample time for your skin to soak them up overnight and provide protection throughout the day
In order to maximize the efficacy of your skincare, we suggest applying products in order of lightest to heaviest molecular weight. This way, small molecules, like those in essences, can absorb into skin before larger molecules, like the ones in face oils.
Face oils are the perfect way to round out your skincare regimen with complete skin nourishment by locking in essential moisture and nutrients.
