Why We Love Facial Oils
We love, love, LOVE facial oils here at The Clean Beauty Edit. They are a firm favourite because they can make an immediate difference to the look and health of the skin. In fact, we like to think of them as the ultimate skincare secret. Why is that, you ask? Because when you compare them to a cream moisturiser, you need very little - just a few drops after cleansing will leave skin luminous, soft and plump, needing less make up and skincare products overall. We find that our skin looks so glowy and healthy when using oils that we end up using less make up too, and the oils tend to be so versatile that they can also be used on hair, lips, eyes and cuticles too (cutting out the need for separate products and streamlining our bathroom shelf).
Facial oils will help to calm, hydrate and brighten the skin and are ideal for sealing in water and forming an additional protective barrier, especially during the colder, harsher months. The reason facial oils have endured for thousands of years (the ancient Egyptians loved Moringa Oil), is that they are easily available, visibly effective and you can usually see some benefit immediately after use. You have got to love the texture too which feels wonderfully luxurious and comforting on the skin, meaning that those who love using facial oils usually remain very loyal to their favourites, buying them time and time again.
