Facial oils have become popular over recent years, following indie trends into the mainstream.
Skincare is hot in beauty news right now, with catwalks showing a return to a glossier complexion. This is often created by using facial oils.
If you've never tried a facial oil & the word "oil" feels off-putting, let us debunk some myths for you:
1) Well-formulated facial oils are never oily, they absorb fast & leave a satin sheen on your skin which looks healthy & beautiful, never greasy
2) All facial oils are not equal. A petroleum-derived mineral oil may form a protective barrier on your skin, but that's all it will do. High-quality, natural formulas are like super-serums. They feed your skin with a wealth of nutrients including skin-beautifying vitamins, amino acids, phytosterols & more. Many natural ingredients have been clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines, to help even out skin tone & to moisturise, balance, nourish & protect.
3) Facial massage with oils isn't confined to the spa or salon. Although it's lovely having someone else massage your skin, if you gently massage your face at home using facial oil, it will boost circulation, reduce puffiness & help you to look your best.
4) Oils are not new, although they have been recently adopted by the beauty industry and become mainstream. Ditto the new fashion for 'glossy' skin. We always aim for a healthy, radiant, dewy complexion!
