We all know that facial skin is the most delicate part of our body. The skin tissues are so fragile that if not taken care of properly, they end up getting dull and age quickly. The skin needs natural oils to keep hydrated and protected. Good quality facial oil tricks the skin into thinking that it’s produced enough and therefore doesn’t need to produce more, which is one of the major reasons for the skin’s breakouts.
It is ideal to use facial oils regularly as they help in rejuvenating and due to the application procedure, helps to relax the facial muscles. Facial oils are an excellent way to revive antioxidants and vitamins quickly into the skin, at the same time adding a natural glow and help to maintain skin from anti-ageing.
Both, moisturisers, lotions or crèmes and facial oils can be used simultaneously as facial oils are great for layering. It is best to apply oils right to freshly cleansed skin in the morning and at night right before applying the moisturiser. Otherwise only the oil would do well. Facial oils are best for every skin type (dry, oily or combination) as they re-balance skin and restore a naturally healthy complexion. Essential oils are also good for boosting your mood and for health benefits.
