5 Common myths about facial oils debunked
Facial oils are for mature skin
Natural oils mimic the lipids naturally occurring in your skin, this gives you a younger-looking complexion and it can slow down aging and repair cellular damage. Other types of skin can also profit from this skin barrier enhancement.
Facial oils can cause acne
Just because your skin already overproduces oil doesn't mean that they are going to worsen your acne. Some oils, like jojoba or frankincense oil, have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that can help clear acne. Did you know that acne could be caused by dryness? When your skin is dry, it tries to overcompensate for the lack of moisture and ends up causing skin breakouts.
Use a facial oil instead of a moisturizer
Facial oils and moisturizers work together to hydrate the skin. Moisturizers are usually water-based, this is when a facial oil comes in, apply a facial oil after moisturizer and it will trap the moisture.
Oils can replace serums
Facial oils and serums are both concentrated, but they also have different functions. It is important to combine them for better results.
Any facial oil will do
Not all facial oils are the same. It is important to find oils that are not packed with fillers, additives or synthetic fragrances.
