I'm often asked about facial oils & how to apply them. There is such an array of advice online! Different experts say different things.
Face oils can vary, a lot. They have very different compositions. Some, like ours, are full of "dry" oils, which have an affinity with the skin & absorb quickly & easily. Some have mineral oils as their base. Some contain heavier oils. Ours contain essential oils, some don't. And so on.
So how to apply your facial oil all depends on the composition of the product and also on the condition of your skin. Is it lacking in moisture? Flaky? Oily? Are you having breakouts? Do you have allergies or sensitivities?
As you can see, there are rules of thumb (apply your products from the lightest to the heaviest), but there isn't really a "one size fits all".
There is, however, an easy & uncomplicated way to approach this. Watch our 1 minute video to discover how.
If your skin feels it needs more than just a moisturiser, then you can add a facial oil in the palm of your hand & blend the two together to create a truly bespoke product just for your skin. Late nights, exposure to harsh weather conditions or air conditioning, a lack of sleep... all play havoc & can leave our skin out of kilter. Pair an unfragranced moisturiser like our amazing Organic Face Cream (which is vegetarian not vegan due to a small amount of beeswax) with one of our Organic Facial Oils & you'll start to see a difference very quickly.
Enjoy! Please share far & wide.
