Have you given facial oils a try? I was skeptical at first. You want me to put oil on my face? That seems counterproductive. Facial oils are a great tool in your beauty arsenal for preventing wrinkles. Many facial oils are packed with antioxidants which can help to prevent aging. They are great for dry skin and can be much more effective at moisturizing than lotions and creams. Facial oils can penetrate deep into the skin and trap moisture in while keeping out dirt and other toxins. Facial oil mists are great for priming the face before make up, setting make up adding a dewy finish, and keeping skin hydrated throughout the day.
These are the facial oils and mists I’m currently obsessed with:
Farmaesthetics Nutrient Dense Fine Facial Oil is packed with 9 organic beauty oils including evening primrose oil, sweet cherry seed oil, carrot seed oil, borage seed oil, arnica & calendula infused in sunflower oil, natural vitamin e, and orange blossom essential oil. These natural oils are full of skin-boosting nutrients, luxurious compounds and powerful antioxidants that build tone and texture.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil is a blend of oils including, naturally-derived lavender, evening primrose and squalene. It’s formulated to use at night, when your skin is most receptive to repairing itself. This oil smells so calming. I like to place a few drops in my hand and take a deep breath before patting it on my face.
NUXE’s Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse nourishes, repairs and softens the body, face and hair. Not only does it moisturize: it also smells and feels great. It is made with six precious plant oils that ensure optimal hydration for the skin. This face and body oil is always out of stock, so if you ever see it available be sure to snap up a bottle or two. I grabbed mine at City Pharma while in Paris and am so thankful I did!
Caudalie Beauty Elixir is formulated with grape extracts and clarifying ingredients to provide an immediate burst of radiance. The complexion treatment reduces dullness and is infused with toning rosemary, astringent mint, and soothing rose essential oil to prepare your skin for further treatments. Spray on as toner before applying serum and moisturizer, or at any time of the day, for an immediate energizing sensation.
Pixi Glow Mist is enriched with 13 natural oils plus propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts. It gives a glowing, luminous and smooth complexion while hydrating, protecting and nourishing. I love using this mist throughout the day for a shot of moisture. Like an expresso shot for your skin.
