Before you run to your kitchen cabinet to use the coconut oil, you may want to find what natural oil works best for your skin. Typically, moisturizers help with hydrating your skin’s surface, while natural oils help with protecting and curing your skin.
We do not recommend completely skipping moisturizers, but adding natural oils such as argan oil and rosehip seed oil can enhance the anti-aging ingredients that are already in your night time cream.
Skin care is more than just using a good cleanser and heavy moisturizer. We know that using oil on your skin face sounds messy and intimidating so we recommend that you ease into introducing your skin to natural remedies.
Here are some natural oils that you will want to pick up on your next visit to the health store.
One of our favorite oils is in fact not an oil at all, it is extracted from North American indigenous plants. Jojoba oil can be used for everything from acne to sunburns. It mimics the structure of your skin and it can help balance out sebum production and eliminate acne.
While avocado oil is typically used for cooking, it can shield your skin from ultraviolet radiation and protect your face from skin damage. Think of it as skin care with a kick. If you really want to go natural, you can also rub the inside skin of an avocado on your face the next time you make an at-home mask.
If you suffer from dry skin, argan oil can help with nourishing and restoring your skin by adding just a few drops directly on your skin and face. When you think of oil on your face, you may think that it will cause your face to appear oily, but in fact it can also help control oil production by reducing sebum for people with oilier skin.
Rosehip Seed Oil
For those of us who are looking to fight aging skin, Rosehip seed oil is a powerful skin nourisher and is one of the top anti-aging oils. It is extracted via a cold-press method from the seeds of a specific rose variety, predominantly grown in Chile. This oil is rich in essential fatty acids and contains vitamins E, C, D, and beta carotene.
If you use any moisturizer, one of the ingredients you may find on the bottle is shea butter. Although “oil” is not in the name, it holds high concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins that make shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using shea butter on your body, especially your face, can condition, tone, and soothe your skin. Just be mindful of how much you use, especially if you have oily skin.
How to Include Oil in Your Skincare Routine
Now that we know the benefits of some of the most powerful natural oils, let’s explore how you can include them in your skincare routine and which steps for skin care you can skip.
For dry skin on your face, you will want to include a blend of oils before applying night cream. If your skin is oily, we recommend that you apply the oils after your toner, but using a clean cloth to remove excess oil, and avoid using extra moisturizer. A few dabs of your day lotion or night cream will do.
We already have enough steps for skin care, so why not make it easy. The best bang for your buck is to purchase a blend of oils that you can include in your daily skin routine. Skin care is much like your diet in that you will want to get the most out of what you pay for.
Our 3-in-1 Radiant Face Oil is a combination of organic avocado oil, jojoba oil and vitamin E. Although you may intake vitamin E in different forms, we included this special ingredient in our blend to add a beautiful glow to your face. Instead of purchasing several oils and making a messy mix, give our Radiant Face Oil a try, you'll wonder what you used before.
Once you try our Radiant Face Oil, you will never want to try another face oil product again!
