Face oils: look younger, feel younger.
Face oils are not restricted to those suffering from extremely dry skin. It’s one of the best ways to achieve supple skin and to attain the highly coveted dewy look.
Whether you go for for grapeseed, coconut, jojoba, argan or almond oil; keep in mind that they vary in texture and richness. Test and trial, and inspect results. Generally, the higher the saturated fat content; the heavier the oil will feel.
If you are a brand lover and want to try some of the best face oils in the market, here is a list.
|L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Youth Oil: Interestingly, the Divine collection is formulated with Corsican Immortelle; the everlasting flower that never fades, even after it has been picked. Initially, I thought it’s just a marketing angle, but this oil does leave your skin feeling soft and it’s said to have anti-aging properties as well.
Clarins Face Treatment Oil: Clarins offers three kinds of face oils; lotus (combination to oily skin), blue orchid (normal skin) and santal (very dry skin). Use according to your skin type, as these rebalancing oils are made from pure plant extracts.
Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil: With a very calming fragrance, it moisturizes and softens the skin. A blend of Vitamin E, sesame, sweet almond, olive and jojoba oil. Apply before your makeup application for a soft base or before bed. For normal to dry skin.
Dior Instant Gentle Cleansing Oil: Dior hasn’t come out with an independent line of face oils yet, but this oil promises thorough makeup removal. A great option if you don’t want to use makeup removing pads or tissues that can leave the skin overly dry post-cleansing.
Jojoba Oil: Excellent for sensitive skin, jojoba oil acts as a natural barrier to environmental allergens. Due to its anti-microbial properties, it helps to slow the growth of bacterial and fungal microbes. Get your hands on a bottle from healthcare stores or apothecarist.
Estee Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality Essence Oil: This oil can’t be used by itself, especially if you have dry skin. Use a few drops along with your moisturizer for an added skin boost. It is heavily fragranced, but if you don’t mind the scent, go for it.
Clinique Revitalizing Treatment Oil: For all skin types and a good moisturizer; it refines your skins texture too. Reasonably priced and moderately sized, you will have no regrets.
