Face oils can play a beneficial part in every skincare routine but lots of us wonder how to incorporate them. They work for every skin type and help to balance oil production, calm irritated and sensitive skin, boost elasticity, brighten the complexion, fade scars and pigmentation. Every face oil is different and when we talk about the benefits of a face oil we base this on using a high quality natural anti-ageing face oil like our Nakin Revitalising Face Oil. Read on to find out how best to use an oil in your routine.
The conventional way to use a face oil is to apply it morning and evening after cleansing the face and neck plus applying serum, but before applying face cream and SPF. A face cream is then applied on top of the face oil to seal everything in. We often read that face oils should be applied on top of a face cream; however, this can inhibit the face oil from reaching the skin cells as a good face cream will contain barrier protection from things like the wind and pollution. So, using a face oil before applying moisturiser allows it to better seep into the skin cells for the best nourishment.
One of the lovely things about face oils is that they are so adaptable and work for all skin types and a variety of needs. They are particularly lovely for those with dry and sensitive skin and if this is you then using a face oil twice daily is recommended. For those with oilier skin you are likely to find that a face oil balances the oiliness out and they do not need to be used every day, and instead might be applied a couple of times a week. Face oils can be lovely to use in the morning if you are having a chilled make-up free day, as they give an immediate glow to the face and neck, leaving it soft and dewy.
Face oils have so many gorgeous benefits so we recommend trying one and seeing how they will improve your skin. A good one like Nakin’s Revitalising Face Oil will have an instant boosting effect on the face and neck to leave it looking more alive and glowing. It also helps to enhance and strength skin in many ways with its intense antioxidant and omega blend. This powerful nutrition calms inflammation and irritation, strengthens the skin barrier and helps to fade scarring and pigmentation. Our oil is a big multitasker and is also beautifully anti-ageing. The antioxidants fight free radical damage, and the high nutrient rich formula helps to brighten, hydrate and plump skin, plus smooth away lines and wrinkles. Apply it by warming a couple of drops between the finger pads and press or massage all over the face and neck.
