FACIAL OILS – the low down
Today’s wave of eco-conscious beauty has sparked a surge of interest in facial oils.Using natural ingredients containing essential and botanical plant oils, which have a small molecular structure, make them much more able to penetrate the skin, locking in moisture and balancing the skin’s natural oil production. All leaving you with a healthy, radiant glow.
They’re also rich in healthy skin essentials such as moisturising fatty acids, including omega 3, 6 and 9, which strengthen the skin’s lipid layer and help stabilise natural oil production.
Most facial oils are mixed to suit various skin types, and many contain therapeutic essential oils such as geranium, neroli and rose. This ensures the scents are just as pleasant as the effects they’ll have on your skin. People with sensitive skin could find relief from them as they primarily use pure plant oils which do not contain preservatives, which could increase the chance of skin irritation and allergic reaction.
For Oily skin, Yes Really!
Those with oily, blemished skin probably shudder at the thought of putting oil on their face, but plant-based oils are non-comedogenic. This means they’re not as likely to clog pores and cause breakouts. Natural oil production in the skin can happen when the oil isn’t balanced as it should be – by ridding the skin of all oil, the body then tries to overcompensate and produce more oil. By using a good quality facial oil (Oleo Skin Balancing Facial Treatment Oil), your skin regains its balance and so not as much oil is produced, leaving the skin looking radiant without being shiny.
An Essential For For Dry Skin
For dry skin a richer oil is advised such as Oleo Dry Skin Facial Oil which contains vitamin-rich avocado and wheatgerm oils. These will soften, nourish and hydrate the skin. In addition, this contains the rejuvenating properties of rose and neroli essential oils, which also lend a sublime fragrance.
And Not forgetting Aging Skin
A facial oil could be just what you need in your anti-aging skin regime. As you age, your skin produces less oil. For many women, that means dry skin, which exaggerates the look of wrinkles. Applying a facial oil or serum between cleansing and moisturising will add an extra layer of hydration, reducing dryness and fine lines. The Oleo Essential Skin Serum will also minimise future damage with ingredients like argan, pomegranate, seabuckthorn and rosehip seed.
How To Use
A little goes a long way with facial oils.
- Start with a clean face and neck, ideally cleansing and toning
- Take a few moments to massage the oil into the skin using upward circular motions from the neck up.
- Facial massage gets your complexion glowing by increasing blood circulation and enhancing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the skin.
- The added benefits include the relaxation of muscles, melting away tension to soften fine lines and wrinkles, reduces puffiness and expels toxins.
- complete your skincare routine with your favourite moisturiser.
There really is no better time to introduce a complete skin care routine what ever your age and don’t forget that with 60% of what you put on your skin ends up in your blood stream try to stick to organic and natural products.
