Spotlight On: Face Oils
Forget the misconception that oil doesn’t belong anywhere near your face – the opposite is actually true.
If used properly, beauty oils can boost the performance of your current routine and take your skin to the next level. According to our Ultimate Beauty Expert, Rebecca Nicholls, some oils (including those used in Jurlique’s facial treatment oils) easily absorb into the layers of the epidermis, making it the perfect carrier to deliver beneficial ingredients and nutrients to the skin.
Using oil on the face doesn’t equal a greasy face. The pure plant oils Jurlique has selected are similar to sebum (the skin’s natural oil), meaning that they are easily absorbed and won’t leave an oily residue. Furthermore, they’ve been shown not to clog or irritate pores, or disrupt normal skin function; for oily skin, the right treatment oil will actually result in the normalisation of the skin’s sebum production, meaning the skin will actually be less oily. Good facial oils enrich, hydrate, soften and revitalise skin, while also helping to protect from environmental aggressors.
Here’s how you can incorporate beauty oils into your skin care regime:
Hydration helper. After cleansing, if your skin feels too taut and dry, simply pat on a small amount of oil wherever needed.
Moisturiser boost. Skin feeling extra dry and dehydrated? Add a few drops of oil into your day cream to give your moisturiser an extra skin-nourishing boost.
Night treat. Apply to cleansed skin to help strengthen your moisture barrier and target your specific skin concerns while you sleep.
Massage aid. Work a few drops over your face, neck and décolletage (make sure skin is cleansed), breathing deeply for a relaxing experience.
