Why It Works

From the Egyptians, to the Greeks, to the Romans facials oils have been around for thousands of years to supplement and replace the natural oils of the skin. Skin oil, or sebum, is necessary in keeping a barrier in place to help our skin to hold moisture. When that barrier is compromised, the result is too much water evaporation, leaving dry and dull skin. The skin barrier is also necessary to keep bacteria and environmental factors out of our skin.

Facial oils are irresistible because they are multifunctional. Facial oils are highly moisturizing, in fact oils are more readily absorbed into the skin than creams. They work at locking in moisture. Secondly, they simply protect your skin. Because oils are lipophilic, they can penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water and other moisturizing goodness in, while keeping toxins and other bad stuff out. Thirdly, they can help reduce wrinkles due to the high source of antioxidants and vitamins in many plant oils. Lastly, facial oils are the perfect primer for makeup. It gives an immediate plumping effect and creates the perfect canvas for your makeup.
