Why Your Skin Needs Facial Oils


Why Your Skin Needs Facial Oils


For far too long, oil has been deemed the enemy when it comes to skincare. Many people believe that applying oil to the skin can lead to breakouts, excessive greasiness, and clogged pores. However, this belief is based on a misunderstanding of the complex nature of oils and their interactions with the skin. 


Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of oil-based skincare products.


Balancing and Regulating

Contrary to popular belief, oils can actually help regulate sebum production and be suitable for both dry and oily skin types. When the skin is lacking moisture, it may overproduce oil to compensate for the dryness. By providing the skin with the right kind of oil(s), we can signal to the sebaceous glands that they don't need to produce as much oil, thus, promoting a balanced complexion. 


Nourishment and Hydration

Natural oils such as Jojoba, Rosehip, and Avocado oil are rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins that nourish and hydrate the skin. These oils help to replenish moisture and strengthen the skin barrier, leading to a healthier complexion. Our facial massage oil contains Jojoba and Rosehip oils, and our Body Glow oil contains Avocado oil.


Protection and Antioxidant Power

Certain oils, like Grapeseed oil (found in our Body Glow Oil) and Marula oil, contain antioxidants that help protect the skin from environmental stressors, such as pollution and UV damage. These antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals, minimizing the signs of aging and promoting a more youthful appearance.


Gentle and Soothing

All our face and body oils are formulated with gentle, non-comedogenic oils that are well-tolerated by most skin types. These oils have a lightweight texture that absorbs easily into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. They can also have a soothing effect on sensitive or irritated skin, reducing redness and inflammation.


Incorporating Oil-Based Skincare into Your Routine

When incorporating oil-based products into your skincare routine, it's essential to choose high-quality, cold-pressed oils that are specifically formulated for the face. Or choose our oils, since they were carefully formulated and handcrafted to offer your skin the optimal balance and nutritional value.


In case you want to experiment with oils in general, here are a few tips:


Patch Test: Before using a new oil-based product, perform a patch test on a small area of your skin to ensure you don't have any adverse reactions.


Customization: Different oils offer unique benefits, so consider your skin type and concerns when selecting an oil-based product. For example, Rosehip oil (used in our facial massage oil) is excellent for hydration and reducing the appearance of scars, while tea tree oil is known for its antibacterial properties.


Layering: You can layer oil-based products with other skincare products like serums or moisturizers. Apply lighter products first and follow up with an oil to seal in moisture.


Moderation: A little goes a long way with oils. Start with a small amount and gradually increase if needed. Remember, it's all about finding the right balance for your skin.


It's time to dispel the myth that oil is bad for our skin. Embracing oil-based skincare products can unlock a world of benefits, from nourishment and hydration to protection and balance. By choosing high-quality oils and incorporating them into your skincare routine, you can experience the transformative power of these natural wonders, revealing healthy, glowing skin.
