I remember watching my mom use oils on her face when I was young but always read that it would clog your pores. I never believed everything I read considering my mom had a glowing complexion. I quickly adapted her routine and I’m thrilled to see that facial oils aren’t receiving the bad rap that they use to.
After much research and testing of numerous products I wanted to pass down a few great facts on products I love. Applying oil to oily skin can actually help manage pore-clogging, it sounds crazy but it’s true! Oils are also linked to delivering powerful antioxidants and antiaging ingredients which reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I’m aware that some people are under the assumption that oils can leave you looking greasy but that’s simply not true. The right oils deliver moisture, boost radiance and keep your skin hydrated all day. They can be used day or night and are great for all skin types, including acne prone. Here are some of my favorites.
My neighbor introduced me to this particular oil and she raves about it. I decided to give it a try and she was right! My skin felt replenished and hydrated. It’s a night oil that helps to repair and regenerate the skin. Packed with primrose and lavender makes this oil an ideal treat before bed.
I’m a huge fan of Sunday Riley products especially their night oil. Luna helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while simultaneously correcting damage caused by the sun, time, and pollution. I pat this into my skin before bed and wake to hydrated, firmer skin by morning. The oil is made up of blue tansy, combined with German chamomile, cold pressed avocado, chia, and concord grape seed oils. The blue tansy pure essential oil possesses calming and anti-inflammatory properties, which aid in the support of healthy skin. The aroma is very strong but in a therapeutic way. Some people are turned off by the smell but I personally love it.
This facial oil offers a balanced hydration to combination and oily skin. It reduces redness and clarifies the complexion very similar to Luna by containing blue tansy. Herbivore absorbs deeply and effectively into the skin without clogging pores for balanced overall hydration. You will find no parabens, sulfates or phthalates. Each ingredient is added for therapeutic reasons which is what I love about this oil.
I hope you love one of my favorites from above and thanks for stopping by!
