Things You Misunderstood About Facial & Body Oils! How to apply oil correctly?
Learn how to choose and apply facial/body oil!
We all have had dehydration problems before. Other than applying serum and lotions, a moisturizing facial and body oil can help save your dry skin. If you haven’t used one before, or that you think it’s not that ‘magical’ after using one, you may have some misunderstandings towards the oils, or that you don’t know about the correct ways to apply oil. As long as you choose the right one, you can get the highly moisturized and glowy skin!
1. Is Facial/Body Oil not suitable for Oily Skin?
Many of us think facial/body oil may block our pores, and therefore cause acne problems. But if you choose the correct one, it can instead prevent the skin from getting allergic and help skin recovery.
2. Will facial/body oil break the balance of oil and water?
Healthy skin will have a perfect balance of oil and water. Facial/body oils can help lock the moisture in the pores, and also build up a barrier for the skin.
3. Is facial/body oil necessarily greasy?
Many people stay away from facial/body oils because of how greasy the feeling is. But the truth is, if you choose the right one, and apply the right amount of oils according to the instructions, you won’t have the disgusting greasy feel as all the oil will be absorbed into your skin.
1. Choose the right facial/body oil for your skin type
Before purchasing body or facial oil, check carefully its ingredients. Quality is the key. You can choose those enriched with natural oils like flowers or berries. For those who have acne or oily skin, you can choose the oils that are infused with tea tree or almond oils.
2. The correct order in your skin care routine
There are different views in terms of the correct order in your skincare routine. Somebody says the oil should be used before moisturizing essence. But some others say you should moisturize before using the oil to lock the moisture. Either way, you should choose the best way that fits your skin type.
3. Massage your skin with oils
Don’t apply facial or body oil onto your skin by rubbing! You should put a few drop onto your balm, then warm up the oil with your bare hands. Then gently massage your skin so as to facilitate the absorbing process.
