1. Choose the Right Face Oil
Choosing the right face oil depends on your skin type and concerns. For oily skin, consider the lightweight and non-comedogenic nature of extra virgin olive oil. Dry skin may benefit from the richness of this oil, providing deep nourishment. Extra virgin olive oil's balanced properties make it suitable for combination skin, and its gentle nature caters to sensitive skin.
That all being said, here are the main differences between our Nourishing Face Oil and our Ageless Face Night Oil: The Nourishing Face Oil is lighter, while the Ageless Face Night Oil is heavier, made for deep overnight hydration and repair. The Nourishing Face Oil is more suited for daytime use because of that light nature, and because we add red raspberry seed oil, which naturally protects against UVB and UVC rays. Comparatively, one of the star ingredients of our Ageless Face Night Oil is bakuchi oil which contains bakuchiol, a natural retinol alternative. This makes it a wonderful option for those looking to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
It's essential to note that skin reactions vary, so patch testing any new product, including extra virgin olive oil, is advisable.2. Timing is Everything
Incorporate face oil into your routine either as your moisturizer or after your water-based moisturizer for extra hydration. This allows the oil to lock in moisture and create a protective barrier. You can use it both in the morning and evening, adapting to your preferences.
3. The Art of Application
Less is more when it comes to face oils. Start with a few drops and gently press or pat the oil onto your skin. This ensures even distribution without overloading the face. Allow a few minutes for absorption before moving on to the next step.
4. Consistency is Key
Like any skincare product, consistency is crucial. Incorporate face oil into your routine regularly to experience its long-term benefits. It's not just a quick fix but an investment in your skin's health.
5. Listen to Your Skin
Pay attention to how your skin responds. If you notice any irritation or discomfort, reconsider the choice of oil or adjust the quantity. Every skin type is unique, and finding the right balance is essential.
Incorporating face oil into your skincare routine doesn't have to be complicated. With a few simple steps and the right approach, you can effortlessly elevate your skincare game, unveiling a luminous and healthy complexion.
