I admit that when I first heard about facial oils, I was stunned. That’s because when we hear the word ‘oil’ we don’t usually associate them with skin care routine, more so putting it on our face. In fact, who in their right mind would ever think of slathering facial oil all over their mugs? That’s just crazy, right?
Well, apparently, Cleopatra did. Of course we all heard about Cleopatra’s legendary beauty so it must have worked. Yes, despite her living in the harsh desert conditions of Egypt, she still looked ravishing, according to history books. So should I be using it as well? If Cleopatra, one of the most alluring figures in history, is using it, why not?
Aside from Cleopatra using it, here are more reasons why you should start using it as well:
We all know too much ultraviolet light can cause damage to our skin. This means that the more UV light our skin gets, the more wrinkles and sunspots we tend to have. Facial oils have natural anti-oxidants in them. This prevents wrinkles and sunspots, thus using them will make our skin look young and healthy.
Moisturizes & Protects Skin
If you’re having problems with dry skin, using facials oils is much more effective at moisturizing than most over-the-counter lotions and creams. This is because oils are lipophilic, which means that they penetrate deep into the skin, traps moisture in, and keeps toxins away. This only means that using oils will not only moisturize your skin, but will also form a barrier to protect your skin from toxins.
Many oils have anti-inflammatory properties. So when you’re having problems with zits, rashes or even enlarged pores, facial oils are probably the solution you’ve been looking for.
Think of facial oils as a perfect canvas for your makeup. That’s because facial oils settle quickly on top of the skin and hydrates it, which of course will make your skin smoother. This will make it easier for you to apply your makeup. In addition, oils will make your makeup last longer.
With all the nourishing, moisturizing, hydrating benefits of facial oils to the skin, many are actually using them now. And from what I’ve been hearing, it’s been creating a buzz in the skincare industry as it’s been continuously gaining popularity. Do yourself a favor and try it. You’ll certainly feel and see the benefits in no time.
