using oils in your skin care routine
Our skin is a complicated, dedicated, diligent organ that depends on certain natural oils to maintain a healthy balance and vibrant complexion. When we’re young, the oils in question are produced by our skin. As time goes on, we produce fewer, and our skin needs help adding them back in order to promote a healthy lipid barrier, locking in moisture and preventing dehydration.
There’s a common misconception about oil-based skincare products: that they’re only right for a certain skin type, and women with oily or blemished complexions shouldn’t be using them because they’ll further clog your pores. False. The proper oils have the ability to dissolve bad oils, helping to preserving the PH of your skin and regulate blemishes for a well-balanced complexion.
Oils are a luxurious, indispensable step in our daily regimens. They delicately clean without stripping you of moisture, which promotes exactly the type of graceful aging we’re after.
Everyone should know their oils. Here are ours.
Nourishing Oil Cleanser is a most delicate, sensorial experience. It’s the perfect first cleanser, as it’s so effective at dissolving makeup and other impurities, giving the skin a thorough cleanse with a silky blend of biocompatible oils and esters, leaving the lipid barrier intact.
Beautifying Face Oil is an incredibly light-weight and fast absorbing face oil that helps instantly energize the look of your silky soft skin. The freshly hydrated finish promotes a brighter, firmer appearance. Use it alone or over a rich moisturizer to lock in hydration.
Retinoic Nutrient Face Oil, how we—and seemingly, everyone who tries you—love thee. This is a concentrated face oil that infuses the skin with essential vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and antioxidants to transform, dry irritated patches into balanced and radiant skin. Mixing it with your serum is kind of like topically delivering a super-vitamin to your skin on a daily basis.
Revitalizing Body Oil: because you’re more than a face! This fast-absorbing body treatment provides comprehensive hydrating and invigorating benefits to the entire body for a youthful-looking appearance. Essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients help moisturize to relieve dry, rough patches. Most importantly, the finish is so soft, silky, and smooth.
