The one beauty product you need to add to your skincare regimen if you haven’t already is a FACE OIL! No matter what your skin type is, adding a face oil to your daily beauty routine is super essential and is a must have all year long. Ever since I religiously started doing this a few years ago, I honestly can tell it has made a huge difference in the overall health of my skin.
Why do you need a face oil ?
The benefits of using a face oil are plenty and here are some of them :
- highly moisturizing, they seal in moisture and add extra nourishment.
- rich in vitamins and antioxidants
- help to repair skin’s barrier function by replenishing your skin’s natural oil content (essential fatty acids).
- help reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
- helps in anti aging by plumping your skin
- improves texture, reduces inflammation, and evens skin tone
- protects against environmental stressors and pollutants.
- helps improve the overall health of your skin. It softens and hydrates your skin leaving you with a dewy healthy glow.
How to use it?
Most face oils come in small ampules since they are highly concentrated. So a little goes a long way. I usually mix a couple of drops of my fave face oil into my day moisturizer. After years of being used to adding face oil, for my nighttime routine I now apply it directly onto my face. But if you are new to it, I recommend mixing it in with your fave nighttime moisturizer. Also while applying the oil onto your face gently press the oil onto your face and don’t rub.
Five favorite face oils :
I have tried out a bunch of face oils over the past couple of years and here are my top 5 fave face oils :
1 ) Kopari Save Face Oil : Always been a huge fan of Kopari, so when they released their new anti aging face oil I had to try it and I am so obsessed! This sheer coconut oil is a plant-based, anti-aging oil that fights free radical damage, hydrates like crazy, and reduces the appearance of fine lines for a more youthful appearance.
2 ) Biossance Squalene + Vitamin C Rose Oil : A long time fan of this product, this is a great face oil for all skin types. It brightens, firms, and evens skin tone and has planet derived squalene oil which is mega-moisturizing molecule that instantly hydrates while locking in essential moisture.
3 ) Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury face oil : This product is always in my travel kit! This wonder-working, luxury facial oil is rich in critical antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids that help moisturize, rejuvenate and nourish skin while restoring a youthful glow. The oil is derived straight from the “pip” of the marula fruit.
4 ) Fresh Beauty Seaberry Moisturizing face oil : Fresh Beauty is another fave skincare brand and I love this particular product. This beauty concoction is packed with nourishing omegas 3, 6, 7, and 9 that help preserve a youthful appearance.
5 ) Josie Maran Argan Oil : This cult favorite argan oil is a do-it-all essential that is super moisturizing and smooths fine lines and wrinkles to preserves skin’s youthful radiance. It also comes in this lightweight version which is also a great alternate if you are looking for an oil lighter in texture.
