If you were told that putting oil on your face could cause really bad breakouts, think again. Oils have been used in beauty products for thousands of years.

Face oils are an elixir of different essential and plant-based oils specifically chosen to not clog pores. They are typically derived from flowers, leaves, roots and other parts of plants. While they are predominantly known for their hydrating properties, oils help anti-aging routines, and provide antibacterial and healing benefits. Topical applications of oils have many benefits on the skin.

So here’s why you need to add a face oil to your skincare routine:

  1. Works with any skin type

Whether your skin is mature, dry, oily, or blemish-prone, all skin needs oil to be healthy. Many people shy away from adding oil because they fear it will only cause more problems or will enhance their already oily skin. Nothing is further from the truth. Providing your skin with these oils will lessen overall oil production. Hydration is really a function of water balance, so oils help keep water in, and prevents the environment from stripping water out.

  1. Of course for anti-ageing!

With age, skin moisture levels decline, causing skin to become dry and dehydrated, and making fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. Oils not only hydrate the skin, but because they are rich in antioxidants, they also fight free radical damage to cells, thereby preventing further aging.

Vitamin E can also act as a natural preservative and prevent free radical damage that may accelerate the aging process and premature aging.

Ubiquinone (CoQ10) is known for its anti-aging effects. Ubiquinone (CoQ10) keeps your skin firm, plump and smooth. It accelerates collagen production, helps reduce fine lines and facial wrinkles.

  1. Oil doesn’t make you skin oilier.

It mimics the skin’s natural top layer which includes a lipids, ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids, all of which can be found in natural plant-based oils. When you offer your skin an ingredient it knows how to use, it will make them more likely to be accepted and absorbed by the skin.

With its high compatibility with skin, it can penetrate the lower layers to create a barrier for moisture while keeping toxins at bay. Specifically, jojoba oil is ideal for balancing the skin because its makeup is so close to that of natural human sebum. When it penetrates the skin, it mimics the sebum, which encourages the skin to stop feeling dehydrated and start encouraging balance.

  1. Great for sensitive skin types

It reduces irritation due to allergies or reactions to other ingredients. Oils like Evening primrose oil contain anti-inflammatory properties to soothe things like redness and irritation due to skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, while also repair and heal damage.

Because face oil is so effective at strengthening the skin’s barrier to outside irritants and calming irritation due to things like allergies, they are highly recommended to those who suffer from sensitive skin.

  1. Essential fatty acids… even the name says its essential.

Incha inchi oil contains omega-rich nutrients like omega-3’s and omega-6’s. These fatty acids are called essential fatty acids, the body does not produce naturally. We know how important it is to get essential fatty acids from our diet, but there are also benefits to applying them topically.

They play a big role in regenerating the skin natural lipid barrier. Lipids are found in the skin’s outermost layer and act as the skin’s barrier to protect skin from external irritations. Lipids are produced by cells in the stratum corneum, the protective outer layer of skin that functions as the skin’s primary protection against water loss. However, as we age, the speed of renewal of lipids in the epidermis decreases rapidly, plus the UV rays, air pollution and poor sleep quality could also cause damage to our skin. Because face oils are composed of fatty acids, they can penetrate skin easily, passing through the lipid layer, and help lock in the moisture, and offer anti-inflammatory effects, thus rejuvenating the skin and restoring a balanced complexion.

Face oil is an incredible multitasker and can fit easily into your skincare routine, especially if your overall skincare goal is to improve and maintain skin health.
