If there’s one thing we all know, it’s that the skin gets dry as hell during the winter. The skin needs moisture, moisture, moisture and the rescue is spelled face oil.
What exactly is face oil? Well, it is exactly what it sounds like, an oil for the face. The face oil is water-free and consists of vegetable oils and sometimes also essential oils that should have different effects for different skin problems. An oil can penetrate deeper into the skin and it is absorbed quickly, so the result is that the skin gets all the nutrients and is deeply moisturized.
A common misconception is that you cannot use oil if you have oily skin or have acne. Because the oil quickly penetrates the skin and acts on the inside of the skin, your skin will not become oily. Oils can stabilize and regulate the production of sebum, and can also both soothe irritated skin and improve acne scars. The important thing is that you choose the right oil based on your skin type.
Why should I use face oil?
Most face creams consist of oil mixed with water – and what happens to water when it’s freezing outside? Yes, it’s freezing. Which causes the skin on the face to become chilled and dry instead of soft and moisturized. Therefore, the facial oil can be a good alternative or supplement in the winter.
