What are Face Oils and How Do I Use Them?
There’s been a lot of buzz around face oils and how they can help boost your skin care ritual.
But what are face oils? What skin types are they suitable for? And how can just two precious drops of these high-performance treatment oils hydrate and revitalise your skin?
What is a face oil?
Face oils – or treatment oils – provide deluxe hydration for those with dry or age-related skin concerns. They add intense moisture to dehydrated or mature skin, alleviating uneven, sun-damaged or crepey textures to promote natural radiance.
They’re also perfect for those times when your skin needs an extra boost – for example, when the changing seasons cause it to dry out and look dull. At these times, concentrated face oils can help give back what the day takes away, and restore your skin’s natural radiance and vitality.
And it’s a myth that face oils are no good for oily skin. If your skin’s prone to oiliness, the right face oils can actually help rebalance excess sebum production, meaning your skin will actually be less greasy. For example, the pure plant oils we’ve selected for our face oil range are similar to sebum, meaning they’re easily absorbed and won’t leave behind an oily residue. They’ve also been shown not to clog or irritate pores, or disrupt normal skin function.
How do I use a face oil?
While face oils can be used as standalone moisturisers, a key benefit is their ability to multitask with your favourite moisturiser to give your skin an ultra-hydrating boost whenever you need it. Used this way, face oils join moisturisers in the fifth step of your Jurlique skin care ritual.
To apply a face oil:
● Following your essence and serum, add two precious drops of treatment oil to a small amount of moisturiser, and warm between your fingertips. This activates the natural plant oils and optimises absorption, enriching skin with a hydrating boost.
● Gently combine and press onto your face, neck and décolletage.
● Use morning and night as part of your daily skin care ritual.
