When it comes to moisturizing the face, there’s nothing hotter than facial oils right now. That’s right – the same stuff you pour on salad and use to lube the engine of your Prius. Of course, facial oils come in a more refined form than your average vinaigrette. When formulated for skin care, these magical liquids work super-hard to add moisture to your skin, balance oil production and provide nutrients. Here are a few ways that facial oils benefit your skin and help you achieve a glowing and hydrated face.
Oils are highly effective moisturizers
Because oils are lipophilic (or “fat-loving”) elements, they pass through the lipid layer of the skin faster which leads to superior hydration. Try Calendula Oil for moisturizing dry skin types. (Allure)
Oils are packed with nutrients
Oils naturally contain nourishing vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids. Our Facial Recovery Oil combines polyphenol-rich olive oil as well as Vitamin E-enriched sesame oil, providing much-needed nutrients for the skin. (Chatelaine)
Oils balance sebum production
If you suffer from overactive sebum production, applying oil can actually reduce oil generation. When skin is properly hydrated, overactive sebaceous glands decrease activity and promote balanced skin. (Huffington Post)
