While the idea of applying oil to your face might seem strange, oils in skincare have come a long way! We’re past the days of oil-free skincare and face oils are now among the most effective products in skincare with nourishing textures to boot. With a huge range of benefits from aiding hydration to brightening, there are face oils to suit every skin type (even oily and combination skin). Read on to find out what are the best face oils for skincare now available!
While oils in skincare sound like they’re super moisturising, that’s not what they’re all about. Unlike moisturisers, oils don’t absorb deeply nor draw moisture into the skin, which are what moisturisers do. Rather, oils sit on the surface of the skin to prevent moisture from escaping.
As a result, oils have an occlusive effect, which means that they form a protective layer on the skin to lock in moisture.
When face oils are coupled with moisturisers, they make for a seriously hydrating one-two combo.
There are plenty of other positives to using these amazing oils, including:
