If you are new to the world of facial oils, you might be wondering about the best way to use them. Here are a few tips to make the most of your skin’s newest friend.
Look at the ingredients. Certain oils are best for certain skin types, and a little internet sleuthing can help you figure out what you need. For example, those with oily skin might look for a blend that includes jojoba, while someone with sensitive skin might check for argan oil. Look for the ingredients that target the issue you have or the nutrients you wish to add to your skin routine.
Keep trying until you find what works for you. Everyone is different with their own unique needs, and the same is true when it comes to your skin. What works for your friend or your favorite blogger might not work for you – but don’t worry. If a certain oil blend isn’t having the results you expected after a reasonable amount of time, switch to something different. Keep trying different oils until you find your perfect match.
Order is everything. Because facial oils are composed of bigger molecules and only reach the outer layer of skin, they should be one of your final steps. This will lock in moisture and create a protective barrier for your skin.
Dry skin? Don’t skip the moisturizer. Some like to add a few drops of oil to their moisturizer for an added boost of hydration and nutrients.
Nighttime is the right time. For best results, use at night after cleansing and toning. When you use at night before you go to bed, it will let the oils work at repairing any damage while you sleep and your skin rests.
