Our skin naturally creates oils and lipids that aid in locking in water to keep the skin hydrated. Without the adequate presence of oils water escapes the skin, known as transepidermal water loss which causes the sky to be dry and flaky. Facial oils have a myriad of benefits but primarily acts as an extra layer of protection for the skin.
Facial oils are beneficial for all skin types including oily skin. Facial oils regulate the level of oils the skin produces in addition to resolving imbalances. Typically facial oils are blended using plant derived oils. Different oils have different healing capabilities. Not only do oils hydrate the skin they are packed full of antioxidants and vitamins which fights free radical damage. Free radicals are responsible for breaking down the collagen in the skin resulting in unwanted skin blemishes like wrinkled skin, saggy skin, fine lines, and dark spots. A facial oil is typically recommended after toning the skin’s surface to lock in hydration. Facial oils are an excellent addition to your skincare routine.
