If you think face oils are just a new trend that will soon go away then you couldn’t be more wrong. Applying oils on the face to nourish the skin is an ancient Egyptian practice. They used to put Moringa Oil on their face for its innumerable benefits.

There has always been some kind of stigma around the regular use of face oils. Most of us grew up thinking that applying oil on the face would bring nothing but disastrous results. Due to a lack of education about skincare, there was no one to tell us that face oil doesn't work like regular oil that we put on the scalp. Good face oils do get absorbed into the skin quickly without leaving that greasy residue.

Well, if you still aren’t convinced and want to learn more about face oil then you have come to the right place.

What are face oils?

In all the things that we used to make our skin better especially during our teenage years, oil somehow never made the cut. Well, to be fair two decades ago skincare wasn't what it is today. Modern skincare researchers are doing their best in finding more benefits from the old trustworthy ingredients. One such product "oil" which usually comes from natural resources got more refined in all these past years. Now, there are specific oils available that are suitable for your skin type.

What are the benefits of face oils?

The main job of face oils is to hydrate the skin. However, keep in mind to only buy facial oils that are made from a natural source and not synthetic ones. Natural face oils are pure oil that commonly comes from one main ingredient like almond, coconut, tea tree, or argan.

You can either decide to use the one made from a single ingredient or you can try mixing some oils to create a perfect blend. You can also buy facial oils that have some other natural ingredients that add more efficiency and effectiveness. Now, let’s talk about some of the main benefits of using facial oil.

Great for Reducing Wrinkles

No one’s skin is safe from harsh UV rays and free radical damage. This is why some oils have antioxidants that keep early aging signs away from your skin. You may be thinking why use oils for reducing wrinkles instead of some expensive product? Well, oils, in this case, grapeseed oil gently work on those fine lines and wrinkles. The best thing is that even people with oily skin can use grapeseed oil as it is non-greasy and lightweight.

No More Dry Skin

This one’s a no-brainer. What can hydrate dry skin better than oil? Losing moisture from the skin is a natural phenomenon which is why it is recommended to start providing skin moisture, externally through serums and creams. While most of these perform the same function which is moisturizing the upper layer of skin, face oils do go one extra mile. In addition to hydrating the skin, oils also create a protective barrier that doesn't let moisture evaporate from the skin.

Top-Tier Skin Protector

Oils are lipophilic, which means they can penetrate the skin deeply. This helps them in creating a thick layer between the skin and the external pollutants. These oils also nourish and strengthen the skin so that it doesn’t break out easily. If you live in a big city where air pollution has just become a regular part of your life then you need to apply face oils more than anyone else.



Substitute for Makeup Primers

There is no greater joy in finding a skincare product that also works well for makeup. Fast-absorbing oil can also be used as your basic primer. Take a pea-sized amount of the oil and then put it on your face before applying the foundation. This will quickly smoothen your skin and even erase any dry patches or bump.

Shrink Enlarged Pores

One of the biggest reasons for enlarged pores is uncleaned dirt trapped in them. When oils go into these pores they soften the grim and dirt. After this, it becomes easier to clean and pores appear smaller. When the pores aren’t dirty they don’t seem as noticeable. However, read the oil formula carefully and only use it if it's non-comedogenic. Otherwise, the oil will also get settled in the pores.

Calm the Irritated Skin & Zits

Most oils are made from sources that have anti-inflammatory properties. Due to this reason, irritated skin with bumps and pimples can benefit greatly from facial oils. Tea tree oil is most well-known for cleaning the bacteria from the skin which reduces acne and pimple marks rather quickly.


Who should and should not use face oils?

There was a time when face oils weren’t considered for everyone but now things have changed. Today every skin type has an appropriate face oil for it. Although if you have an extreme skin condition like dermatitis or rosacea, you should try consulting with a doctor first. Let’s take a look at the perfect match of face oils with their suitable skin type:

Dry and Dehydrated Skin: Try using oils that are high in omega-3 and fatty acids. The good news is you have a wide range to choose from like coconut, rosehip, Abyssinian, marula, moringa oil, etc.

Aging Skin: Try acai, borage, or argan oil to get rid of aging signs.

Oily or Acne Prone Skin: Try using pumpkin seed or grape seed oil for regular use. For specifically removing the acne use tea tree or black cumin oil.

Sensitive Skin: Try using single-ingredient oil e.g squalane and avoid blends.


How can you add face oils to your skincare routine?

To maximize the advantages of using facial oil, you should know how to apply it properly. If you think you can apply face oil just like a serum then you are highly mistaken. You need to understand the proper order before using facial oil.

Face oils should be the final product in your night or daytime skincare routine. The reason behind this is the thick texture of face oils traps whatever product you applied before it. Also, any serum or lotion that you apply after the face oil won’t be effective for your skin.

Use face oil only when you are done with all the other products like cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer. Take 3 to 4 small drops of the oil on your palm and massage it gently on your face and neck. Remember, unmassaged oil sits on the top of your skin so don’t just pat it on your skin.
