Why Oil-Based Moisturizers are Great for Your Skin?

Why Oil-Based Moisturizers are Great for Your Skin?

July 30, 2015

Oil. Why are we so afraid to use it on our skin? As I said in this earlier post, the right oils are actually GOOD for your skin!

So let’s all just agree that oil based products are, in the very least, worth looking into, okay? Okay!

We’ve already talked about oil cleansers but what about oil-based moisturizers?

Young-looking, radiant skin is skin at its healthiest and healthy skin means a wealth of oils! As we age, we produce less of the oils that give our skin a healthy glow. So, our job now is to add them back!

When natural and essential oils are applied to the skin, they are absorbed directly into the top layers of the epidermis, where they instantly go to work to repair and protect. The result is healthy, glowing skin and no clogged pores!

Compared to synthetic products, natural oils and oil-based moisturizers (Such as our Antioxidant Serum) bring all of the benefits with none of the disadvantage of that waxy build-up.

So… what are you waiting for? Go give oil moisturizers a try!

Exfoliation: What is it and Why is it important?

While you may be cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen, daily. If you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be. It is very important to exfoliate your face and body all year round. But after the winter, sloughing away all that dead skin seems even more necessary.
