A Guide To Facial Oils: 6 Hero Products and How To Use Them

We’re willing to bet your daily skincare ritual looks something like this: 1) micellar water, 2) facial cleanser, 3) toner, 4) eye cream, 5) moisturizer. If so, kudos for taking care of your skin! 

But what about those pesky skin problems that never seem to resolve, no matter how consistent your routine or how many products you’ve tested. Dryness. Blemishes. Scarring. Redness.

Allow us to introduce your new favorite, miracle-working, holy grail skincare staple: facial oil! No matter your skin type, the benefits of applying beauty oil on a regular basis knows no bounds. Ditch those long-standing skin frustrations, and say hello to new levels of hydration, a radiant glow and flawless complexion – all day, every day.

The Perks of Using Facial Oil

1) Moisturize and nourish: Facial oils seal in the hydrating ingredients of a daily moisturizer, while providing added hydration for a long-lasting glow. If you are prone to dry skin, apply one or two drops day and night after moisturizer – once at night for oily skin types.

2) Radiant, all-natural glow: Dehydration, lack of sleep and age all play a role in the amount of natural oil the skin produces. (We’re talking about the good oils - the kind that determine how hydrated and illuminated you appear.) Beauty oils restore moisture and radiance for a head-turning glow.

3) Protect the skin: Facial oils act as an added layer of protection against harmful environmental toxins. Keep blemishes and irritations at bay!
