It is said that Cleopatra the ancient great Queen of Egypt used oils to enhance the beauty of her face. The elite make up artists and beauty gurus are also doing the same. How many times do you hear people saying that oils are not good, they clog pores etc? More and more people are realising that, that is not the case.
Yes, our skin is made of multiple layers; firstly the epidermis, dermis and then the hypodermis. Our facial oils are made from organic botanical extracts and natural components. They are easily absorbed therefore they penetrate through the layers of the skin and retain moisture making the skin plumper and reducing the appearance of fine lines. This is the thing that makes facial oils a ‘one hit’ wonder!
However, you may ask, but how can oils be good for oily skin?!
Facial oils work best on cleansed skin. It is not meant to add extra oiliness to your skin this way. (Do try a patch test before smothering oil all over your face though). Celebrity dermatologist Dr Gervaise Gerstner (Stylist.com) advises “Facial oils should not cause oily skin to break out. Use a small amount at first to test,” “The oils absorb instantly so the skin does not look greasy or shiny but rather has a sheer glow.”
The best time to apply oils on the face is in the evening as that is the time the skin is resting so the oil can work to repair and protect the skin. Applying facial oils during the day as a daily moisturiser can also benefit the skin.
Oils like grapeseed oil, almond, avocado, jojoba oils and whipped butters like shea are all good contributions to protecting the skin and retaining moisture for the skin throughout the day. By using the right blend of oils, you can cleanse your pores of dirt and bacteria naturally, gently and effectively. Its done by replacing the dirty oil with beneficial ones extracted from natural botanicals, vegetables and fruit that heal, protect and nourish your skin.
