Well, we all love facial oils for so many reasons. First, the radiance and plumpness they give to our skin are brilliant. But, unfortunately, especially in winters, our skin drinks it up! The skin tends to dry and look flaky, which is not ideal for conscious or who like to use different products on their skin.
Do you know the best oils to add to your skincare routine? This post is a must-read if you want to invest in the best facial oils. And NO! The oils won’t clog up your pores or cause breakouts.
Oils have a terrible reputation in the market, and many people are scared to use them. Unfortunately, the truth is some oils can clog your pores. Instead, fats give you the required moisture and make your skin soft and plump. So if you are still scared of using oils on your face, add a few drops of tea tree oil to your skincare products, and you should be good!
It is interesting to note that Jojoba oil contains a composition very similar to the composition of our skin. It is because of this that the oil blends into your skin seamlessly! When it comes to using Jojoba oil, there are many ways! You can use jojoba oil for your body and hair. Its presence has replaced animal fats in the skincare business since it closely resembles our sebum. Jojoba oil is a carrier oil; hence can be used on its own. It can also be a fantastic addition to any essential oils. Jojoba oil is an excellent option for anyone looking for light and nourishing.
GRAPE SEED OIL
The black grape seed oil is pure love to many! Do you want to see your fine lines vanish within a few months? Use grape seed oil. Also, you can mix carrier oil or any other oil or use it on its own. It seeps into any skin type and works on stubborn acne. Did we say grapeseed oil works amazingly on acne? Well, absolutely yes!
The treatment might not be effective if you suffer from an extremely severe case of acne. Consult your doctor.
ROSEHIP SEED OIL
Early signs of aging, dark spots, acne blemishes, anti-aging, moisture loss, and dull skin – If you want to heal it all, you cannot miss this oil! The essentials fatty acids in rosehip seed oil are responsible for making your skin plump and rejuvenated. It is so powerful in healing dry skin that it heals cracked lips, heels, knees, and elbows. Oily skin beauties must not miss this either since it works like a charm in restoring moisture in your skin, too, don’t overuse it.
PURE ALMOND OIL
Almond oil had to be on the list! But we mentioned ‘pure’ because there are so many fakes available on the market. You need to check the smell, color, and consistency before picking it up. Usually, organic stores have good-quality almond oil at very reasonable prices.
Almond oil gives your skin a high dose of Vitamin E that helps heal from any irritation or skin issues. It also helps in healing scars, wounds, and blemishes. You might need to work on this oil for it to absorb. But there is nothing that you cannot fix; after a lovely massage with pure almond oil, you will feel like you have no oil over your face.
Castor oil is tricky to work with; therefore, be careful, or you might end up drying your skin more than usual.
Take a little castor oil and mix it with any above oil, say in a 1:3 ratio. The benefits are astounding once you get used to working with castor oil! Castor oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, ideal for acne-prone skin. In addition to its high unsaturated fat content, it contains minerals, proteins, and vitamin E. These elements combined can help reduce acne-causing bacteria, inflammation, and scarring related to breakouts and help heal discoloration and scarring associated with acne.
Many other oils can benefit you significantly and up your skincare routine. As much as we wanted to add Argan oil to the list of facial oils, it’s not on the list because there are not many good quality ones available on the market. Many of the argan oil that you may find in the market are not effective and good enough in quality to give results.
However, if you come across an excellent Argan oil, buy it without thinking twice!
Using these facial oils on your skin or hair gives excellent benefits. You will feel that your skin is doing better in winters as soon as you start using them. Include them as part of your daily skincare routine to see the results for yourself.
