Benefits of Face Oils and Serums
More and more brands are coming out with “face oils and serums” but what are these new products? Facial oils/serums are a great skincare/beauty staple for anyone whose skin could use a boost of nourishment and can make a remarkable difference for all skin types including dry, flaky, mature, acne prone, and oily skin types. When used daily, facial oil/serums will make your skin feel smoother, softer, and add a natural glow!
What are Face Serums?
Facial oils can include fragrant plant oils (essential oils) and non-fragrant, fatty plant oils (jojoba, avocado, grapeseed, rosehip, etc.)
How do I use Face Oils/Serums?
There are many ways to use a facial oil/serum including under your moisturizer, on its own, as a makeup primer, or blended into your foundation! Facial oils are helpful for keeping skin's vital hydration locked in and they have incredible, instantaneous skin-smoothing properties. It is important to remember that facial oils/serums are not a “one type fits all” and that you should choose a product based on your skincare needs and/or personal needs. Facial oils/serums do not replace other essential skincare products such as a cleanser, toner or moisturizer.
The ingredients that make up a facial oil/serum including the essential oils and non-fragrant plant oils are a rich source of antioxidants and replenishing emollients. The blend of essential oils chosen your for facial oil/serum can also have aromatherapy benefits such as relaxation, anti-stress, energizing effects, etc.
