The essential beauty of face oils your probably missing from your routine...
Does the thought of putting oils on your skin, on your face completely have you shaking in your boots?
Well, if so… this is definitely for you. Here you will learn all the best oils for your specific skin type. If using a face oil isn’t part of your regular routine, then you're seriously missing out. Ancient Egyptians kept their skin perfect and flawless by using moringa oil. And this could be the missing step that you need in your beauty routine…
If you have Acne Prone Skin the first oil that I would recommend to use is…
1. Tea Tree Oil.
Tea Tree Oil is a natural disinfectant which is going to help kill bacteria to help reduce breakouts and inflammation.
2. Maracuja Oil.
Maracuja oil is found in a lot of Tarte cosmetics, and it's great for hydrating underneath the eye. It's very moisturizing, nourishing but also lightweight.
3. Grapeseed Oil.
Grapeseed oil is really great because it helps lower your inflammation, but it can dry out the skin a bit, so be careful… but it is anti-microbial. So, it's great for breakouts.
4. Apricot seed oil.
Apricot seed oil is also a great for acne prone skin. It's light and non-pore clogging and it's rich in vitamins C &E.
5. Evening Primrose Oil.
Evening primrose oil is also a great foil for acne prone skin. It's great for inflammation and it's rich in vitamin C.
If you have Sensitive Skin, a good oil to try is called…
1. Sea Buckthorn Oil.
Sea buckthorn oil is soothing and calming, it's used to heal burn skin. It includes important omegas and is antioxidant rich. It also contains vitamins C and E. It is a little heavier, so can be great for dry skin.
2. Chia Seed Oil.
Chia seed oil is amazing. It actually has 7X the amount of vitamin C than an orange.
3. Avocado oil.
Avocado oil is also a great idea for sensitive skin. What's interesting about avocado oil is it's extracted from the pulp, not the seed, so it's great for healing dry, itchy, and damaged skin… and is especially great for eczema.
If you've got Dry Skin, I would recommend using an oil called…
1. Camellia Oil.
Camellia oil It's super rich in antioxidants and comes from East Asia. It's an oil that the geisha's used to use to remove their stage makeup and nourish their skin… which is really cool.
2. Safflower Seed Oil.
Safflower seed oil helps to nourish your skin. This oil is very rich so if you are prone to breakouts, be careful because it can clog your pores.
3. Sunflower Oil.
Sunflower oil is rich in vitamin E and is great for helping to create a barrier for your skin to protect it from all the pollution that we come across in our daily lives.
Last but not least, we come to Aging and Mature Skin. One of the best oils for aging mature skin is going to be…
1. Rose Hip Oil
Rose hip oil repairs sun damage and helps with hyper-pigmentation. It's also wonderful for scars and stretch marks. It's very rich in vitamin A, it’s kind of like nature's form of retinal A.
2. Argan Oil.
Argan oil comes from the fruit of a Moroccan tree. It's omega rich, high in vitamin E, and it's also an antioxidant. It's super, super rich, so it's going to help with regenerating new cells and helps to turn new cells over. If you're prone to breakouts, or you've got rosacea or dermatitis steer clear of argan oil, it can further exasperate your issues.
3. Marula oil.
Marula oil is super rich in antioxidants, and it's from the Marula South African tree.
When it comes to buying your oils, you're going to get what you pay for. You want to steer clear of anything that's over processed and has cheap fillers in them. You want to make sure that you're looking for an oil that says it's organic, natural, and cold pressed. That will ensure that your product maintains all the nutrients that's intended.
Before I let you go, I think it's important to make sure that you're using these oils correctly. It's important to put your oil on directly after you cleanse your face, before your moisturizer. I prefer to take the oil, heat it up in my hands and then press the oil into my skin. Making sure it really gets in there. And in the summertime, I like to put my oils on underneath of my sunscreen because it has zinc and titanium oxide in it...Those 2 ingredients act as a natural barrier, which means it's going to trap that oil in your skin so that you can really absorb all the benefits.
I hope you found this super informative. I'm very passionate about beautiful and radiant glowing skin and I know that not everybody knows how to achieve it. I think a lot of people are really scared to even put oils anywhere near their face, especially if they are oilier or acne prone. But what people don't realize is that you need oils, everybody needs an oil…everybody! It's just about choosing the right one. If you guys have any questions, I'd love to hear from you.
