Allow us to lay down the facts. For us to take an informed stand, we need to understand first how the skin functions. Our skin naturally produces oils which help us look young and luminous. However, with age, the amount of oil skin secretes start to reduce. In no time we can see those wrinkle lines appear on our otherwise healthy skin. Thus, to get that glow again all we have to do is add those natural oils back. Oils are lipophilic by nature, which means they can easily combine with or dissolve in lipids/fats. Hence, they can penetrate deep into your skin and can be the best gatekeepers that your skin can get. They keep water and moisture tucked in, and flush toxins out. Face Oils of Argan and Coconut protect the skin from UV Rays and pollutants, thus fortifying your skin.
WHERE TO FIND THESE NATURAL OILS?
Sometimes we tend to overlook answers to the most complex issues in the simplest of places. Mother Nature has given bountiful gifts to replenish our skin through the use of natural oils, which unlike synthetic creams do not seize your senses or require you to shell out the big bucks to restore your natural self. Essential oils are extracted from different parts of the plant like leaves, stem, flowers, roots, fruits and other parts of a plant through Steam Distillation. These oils penetrate the skin’s deeper layers to rejuvenate the cells naturally.
It is high time you considered adding facial oils to your daily skin care routine. Did you just read oils? Yes, why would you apply “oil” on your skin? Would it not make your skin too “oily”? These are some of the biggest misconceptions associated with the usage of oil on the skin.
So Who is who?
Creams are mostly made up of water, wax, and an emulsifier of some sort, and there are a few essential oils/ fragrance mixed to make them smell nice.
You might be wondering why they show such immediate results. Well, the wax forms an obstructive layer on the skin that helps in holding the skin’s moisture. However, in the process, it also clogs the pores hence preventing the oil component of the cream (the real beneficial element) from entering the skin. This is exactly why you often see immediate but rapidly diminishing effects of creams.
They work initially as they create a strong protective film to hydrate. But, this barricade prevents skin from receiving compulsory nutrients. Oils are extracted naturally from parts of a plant. They contain lipids that exfoliate much better as compared to scrubs and other similar treatments which strip off all the moisture from your skin. There are two types of oils that work on our skin- Essential Oils and Carrier Oils. Essential oils penetrate deep into the skin while carrier oils stay on the surface to moisturize and seal the effects of these oils.
ARE FACIAL OILS SUITABLE FOR OILY SKIN TYPE?
If you have oily skin, you would feel paranoid about using oils. After all, your body is already secreting so much of it that you would not want more. But what if we tell you that essential oils are actually composed of botanical extracts which provide you with just the right amount of sebum? Confused? Pure botanical face oils have the exact ratio of antioxidants, nutrients, and vitamins which are lightweight and moisturize the skin by balancing your sebum production.
Face oils are the best cleansing resources that you can find. Massaging your skin with oil will dissolve the oil that is hardened with impurities and stuck in the pores of your skin. It not only cleanses your face but also balances your skin’s natural oils whereas soaps or other cleansers strip your skin off it. Use a combination of castor oil and extra virgin olive oil to cleanse your skin. When you massage oil on your body, it removes dirt and dead skin. Not only does it help you stay clean but also gets rid of tanning, thus brightening your skin.
WHO IS THE REAL SAVIOR?
It is for you to weigh the arguments and decide the best regime for your skin. Beauty is a notion and to each, her own. But skin is a tangible component of our body that we wear regularly. It needs long-term investments in terms of our time, attention and a careful pick of products. Natural facial oils combined with aromatherapy will help you experience a divine sense of wellness. With many other benefits, massaging oil on your body, it removes dirt and dead skin. Not only does it help you stay clean but also gets rid of tanning, thus brightening your skin. Here are some natural face oils and their benefits, some of which are even found in our products. Remember, that these essential oils must always be used with a carrier oil.
1. Jojoba Oil
2. Frankincense Oil
3. Neroli Oil
4. Cypress Oil
Plummeting heat or spending time only in air-conditioned areas might often lead to drying of your face. Hence, Face Oils are the perfect antidotes for dry skin. They have a natural ability to hydrate and nourish a variety of skin types and are in fact more effective than OTC moisturisers. Apart from moisturising your skin, Face Oils also have a positive implication on your mental and physical well-being. Apply 2-3 drops of lavender oil/ peppermint oil, with a carrier oil on your temples and feel relaxed instantly.
With this, we hope that oils become an essential part of your beauty regimen and find a permanent place in your beauty cabinet.
