4 Reasons To Add A Face Oil To Your Skincare Routine

Face oils are oil based skincare products that are usually applied after your moisturiser or mixed with your moisturiser. They function as emollients, this means they help to fill in the cracks and lines on your skin—which makes it look smoother. Face oils are suitable for most skin types and this includes oily and/or acne prone skin. Below are some reasons to add a face oil to your skincare routine;



Moisturises Dry Skin: Face oils could be a good addition to your skincare routine if you have dry skin as it helps to soften and soothe dry skin.

Seals In Moisture: Face oils seal in the moisture from your hydrating skincare products. Sealing in moisture helps to keep the skin hydrated, reduces dullness and encourages healthy looking skin.

Repairs Damaged Skin Barrier: The skin barrier helps to keep out harmful substances/toxins from penetrating your skin. When your skin barrier lacks the natural lipids (oils) it needs to protect itself from these harmful environmental toxins, your skin barrier becomes damaged. Adding face oils to your routine can help replenish, protect and heal your skin barrier.

Keeps The Skin Balanced: Face oils help to balance or regulate excess sebum (our skins natural oils) production. Using a face oil could help keep your oil levels balanced and stop your skin from producing excess natural oils. This could help to reduce the occurrence of breakouts.

We hope these benefits are enough to convince you to add a face oil to your skincare routine. By using a face oil daily your skin will become softer, smoother, brighter and healthier. You can shop our face oil here.
