THE BENEFITS OF BEAUTY OILS


USING COOKING PRODUCTS IN A BEAUTY ROUTINE ISN’T ANYTHING NEW. BUT OILS ARE BY FAR ONE OF THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL. HERE’S THE TRUTH TO BEAUTY OILS AND WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER WHIPPING THEM INTO YOUR SKINCARE: 

HELP ABSORB YOUR TREATMENTS



No, you don’t replace your moisturizer with an oil. Oils are great for layering because that can can lock in anything that’s on your skin. So, apply an oil after your moisturizer, serums and whatever else you use to get the full benefits.

TREAT YOUR ACNE

Despite popular belief, oils should not cause breakouts. If your skin has an acneic reaction to one, you just shouldn’t use it. In fact, tea tree oil can be used to fight acne. It’s gentler than other acne treatments, but when used regularly, it can have a non-irritating effect.

WARD OFF ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE



Oils have a ton of antioxidants packed into them. So, while they create a barrier that holds in all of you treatments and helps them absorb better, they also use that barrier to keep out free radicals like pollutants. 

WASH OFF THE DAY

No need to run to Ulta or Sephora! If you have a little EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) in your kitchen, you’ve got the ultimate beauty oil. Just soak a cotton pad with EVOO and you have the best makeup remover.

GET ZEN WITH THEM


You don’t just need to slather on oils for the above reasons. Aromatherapy body oils can be rubbed behind your ears and on your temples for soothing purposes. You can get different scents for different purposes. For example, jasmine and chamomile can be used for relaxation and something citrusy for happiness.
