Once you try facial oils, you never go back – here are five reasons why you will fall in love with this skin care superhero.

1.

Plant seed oils are already naturally packed with ingredients like antioxidants, polyphenols, carotenoids and omega fatty acids. Thus, a tiny drop can contain more good ingredients than a moisturiser.

2.

Oils can prevent the irritation caused by environmental factors. Oils such as Black currant and Cranberry all decrease inflammation, calm and soothe skin.

3.

In your late 30s, wrinkles suddenly look deeper because the skin's natural oils decrease, the moisture barrier breaks down, and the skin dries out. Most creams contain a little oil, but not enough to make a big difference in water loss. Because oils are lipophilic, or fat loving, they pass though the lipid layer of the skin faster, preventing water loss and plumping skin with moisture more effectively.

4.

If you apply an oil before your anti-aging cream, the oil molecules behave like tiny Trojan horses, delivering active plant ingredients deeper into the skin and closer to the collagen-producing fibroblasts, all without irritating the surface.

HOW TU USE FACIAL OIL?
A DROP OF OIL MIGHT BE ALL YOU NEED

- Exfoliate often so the oil can penetrate easily, otherwise it can sit on top of the skin and make it look greasy.

- Freshly cleansed and slightly damp helps the oil to slide on, be absorbed and lock in moisture.

- As a general rule oils can penetrate moisturisers but not the other way round, so moisturise first, allow it to sink in and pat oil onto dry areas, or all over, to seal in the moisturiser.

- For ultra-dry skin, massage in some face oil, then layer over it with rich moisturizer.
