Facial oil is an essential part of any beauty routine. What are the benefits of facial oil and how should it be used for optimum efficacy?
Why should I use a facial oil?
The body naturally produces oil, but as skin ages, its oil production decreases. This is what causes skin to dry out and the appearance of the first fine lines and wrinkles, often referred to as dehydration lines. Facial oil acts deep down to combat this dehydration by nourishing the skin and helping cells to retain water.
Facial oil is a booster, it increases the efficacy of the skin care products applied afterwards by enabling the active ingredients they contain to penetrate more quickly and deeply.
Facial oil is a real shield that protects your skin against internal factors such as medication, ageing and stress, and external factors, like cold temperatures, pollution, etc… It can even play a regulating role in oily skin.
How should I use a facial oil?
Facial oil should be the last stage in your beauty routine. If you have oily skin, it is recommended that you only apply it in the evening. If your skin is dry, you can also apply it in the morning.
Facial oil should be applied to your skin once it is thoroughly cleansed. You can apply it by mixing it with your day (or night) cream, or apply it directly to the skin in gentle massage movements.
How should I choose a facial oil?
There are two types of oil: mineral and vegetable or plant-based. As their name indicates, vegetable oils come from plants and their ingredients are therefore natural. Mineral oils, however, do not contain any natural ingredients. They protect without penetrating the skin, but remain on the surface and fulfil an insulating role. They can, therefore, block pores and cause imperfections, especially on oily skin.
Choose your facial oil depending on the action you are looking for and the type of skin you have, as each oil works differently depending on its active ingredients.
Which oil should I choose for mature skin?
Facial oil is a very effective anti-age skin care treatment that meets the needs of mature skin. It prevents the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by hydrating the skin and providing the freshness it needs.
