How to Use Face Oil
A few years ago it was difficult to believe that face oil will become one of the most fashionable skincare products. Years ago face care was avoided in every way because of the stereotype that it will make the skin even more oily. The educational work of beauty enthusiasts, dermatologists and cosmetologists rehabilitated facial oils in the eyes of buyers, and now face oil is a trend and useful product that all self-respecting brands started to produce. To get the maximum result from the face oil, it is useful to know a few life hacks as to its use.
Using together with a moisturizing lotion/serum
The most common problems with oil are excessive shine, clogged pores, unabsorbed oily layer on the skin surface and incompatibility with makeup. All of those issues originate from ignorance and not knowing how to handle it. Since the oil itself does not moisturize the skin, do not try to replace it with a moisturizer. Use the following method: wipe your face with lotion or water without alcohol or spray myst, then apply a few drops of oil directly to damp skin and slightly massage it. The oil will deliver water to the deeper layers of the skin and with the help of lipids it will reliably “seal” this moisture.
Contrary to popular belief, oil is an ideal product to take care of the oily skin because lipids dissolve lipids, carefully “peeling off” dead epidermal cells and regulating sebum secretion. Apply special products with the mark “clarifying” according to the method described above, and enjoy the result – there will be fewer rashes since now.
Adding to the cream
If your beauty routine implies layering of cosmetics, it will be good to add the oil to the moisturizer which is usually being applied last. Choose a blend with a rich composition – superfood oils and herbal extracts containing antioxidants, vitamins, fatty acids and other useful ingredients.
This technique can be used when applying undiluted essential oils, such as tea tree, which is excellent against inflammation. Caution: Essential oils are strong allergens. If you are just starting to get acquainted with them, be sure to conduct a patch test – put a little on the elbow or behind the ear to look at the skin reaction.
