Do I Need A Face Oil?

Do I Need A Face Oil?

At Nakin we are often asked the question of if a face oil is needed in a skincare routine, and we always answer yes, as face oils are fantastic products that can do wonders for skin. Of course they are not as essential as a cleanser and moisturiser, as these are the real essentials in any face routine. However, if you have the time to incorporate a face oil into your routine, then we definitely recommend it. If you are weighing up whether to use a face oil or a face serum then we recommend going for the oil option if your skin is sensitive, prone to redness or in need of some healing. At Nakin all of our products help with these issues too, but our Revitalising Face Oil is the hero for these types of skin concerns. Face oils are also excellent for nourishing our skin, easing dehydration, plumping and leaving a hard to beat glow.

At Nakin we produce award-winning natural skincare and although we only have a small collection of anti-ageing skincare it was essential for us to include a face oil in this. There are so many reasons why we love face oils and recommend using them on your face and neck. They are a luxurious addition to a face routine and offer the benefits listed below.

  • Good face oils will be 100% natural, as they do not require the addition of any synthetic ingredients. So, when using a natural face oil like ours you are applying nothing but healthy plant-based goodness to your skin.
  • Face oils glide onto skin beautifully and are an excellent way to give your face and neck a daily massage, to revive the skin and boost the circulation.
  • Face oils can instantly make your skin look super healthy and radiant because the oil combines with our natural skin texture and sebum. They are like a subtle all-over natural highlighter for the face and neck.
  • When you apply a good face oil you are giving your skin a topical boost of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which help to prevent and correct skin damage.
  • As well as feeding skin beautifully, they also lock moisture into the skin, so help to offer skin long lasting hydration and comfort.
  • The combined properties of face oils make them an incredibly anti-ageing product. At Nakin our anti-ageing face oil has been specially designed to keep skin looking youthful with its nutritious blend of special plant ingredients.

Use a face oil after cleansing your face and applying a natural face serum but before applying a face cream moisturiser. There are lots of ways to apply a face oil. You can massage them all over the face and neck, or instead apply a small amount to the inner hands and finger pads and then press them all over the face and neck, until everywhere is covered and it has been applied evenly. You do not need much, just a couple of drops in the day and then again at night. If you use a small amount, then you do not need to worry about that over shiny look, and always wait about one minute for the face oil to absorb before applying the face cream on top.

Incorporating a face oil into your skincare routine can yield significant benefits. Unlike creams or lotions, face oils are highly concentrated with active ingredients that deeply penetrate the skin, providing intense nourishment and hydration. They are particularly beneficial for reinforcing the skin barrier, making them ideal for individuals with dry or sensitive skin. Additionally, face oils can help in balancing sebum production, making them suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin. They are rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which help protect the skin from environmental stressors and improve overall complexion. By integrating a quality face oil into your daily regimen, you can achieve a healthier, more radiant skin.

Face oils are versatile and can be used in various ways. When selecting a face oil, it is essential to choose one that is suitable for your skin type, at Nakin we use high quality plant ingredients to make our Revitalising Face Oil suitable for all. It contains lots of skin loving ingredients like jojoba oil and argan oil. 

To incorporate a face oil into your skincare routine, start by cleansing and toning your face as usual. Then, with clean hands, gently massage a few drops of the oil onto your face and neck in upward motions. You can also use a facial roller or gua sha tool to further promote absorption and lymphatic drainage. Finally, seal in the moisture by applying one of our moisturisers on top of the oil. Remember to patch test new products before incorporating anything new fully into your routine.

We hope that you found our article outlining why you need a face oil helpful. As you can see, we thoroughly recommend them and always say that we do need a face oil in our beauty routines. We love them for many reasons including their texture, nutrient content, and ability to lock moisture into the face. The result is that your face and neck are left looking super healthy and radiant.
