#1 - Your skin age slower when you use a face oilOil is a natural agent for preservation. If you notice, some preserved food is kept in a glass container with a layer of oil on top of it. The oil works as a barrier to keep away free radicals (molecules that responsible for fastening ageing) from attacking the top layer of the skin. The ageing process slows down by half when you use face oil frequently.
#2 - Face oil doesn't clog the poresIf you think that face oil clogs the pores, it really is the mineral oils that do that. Natural face oil that comes from natural ingredients binds together harmoniously with your skin oil so it doesn't clog the pores. Instead, it helps to keep the oil balanced on your skin.
#3 - Face oil can be worn as a makeup baseTypically, face oil is worn at night because it is perceived as too heavy to be worn under the makeup. It is not true when you use a natural face oil. The face oil layers up as a perfect canvas for your foundation and even make the foundation glides smoothly. If you're going to try this, remember to apply some loose powder to set the makeup. The face oil will keep your skin conditioned at all times.
#4 - Face oil reduce acne problemsContrary to popular belief, face oil doesn't cause acne, in fact, it reduces acne problems. Artifical face oil such as mineral oils tends to clog the pores and create acne due to the bacteria growth happening under your skin. With natural face oil, the oil is a perfect barrier for dirt and bacteria from entering your skin through the pores.
#5 - Sensitive skin can't go wrong with face oilIf you have sensitive skin and your skin breaks out every time you use a new skincare, maybe it is time for you to switch to a natural face oil. Natural face oil is often harvested from flowers, seeds or fruits so they don't cause inflammation.
The face oil that I am currently loving is the L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Youth Oil. As the name suggests, it keeps my skin youthful. Believe it or not, I don't have to wear foundation anymore. All I use for the day is just tinted moisturizer. Thanks to the face oil, most of my skin problems have subsided.
