Beauty Rx: Skincare OilsAugust 9, 2017
When it comes to putting our best face forward, there’s one skincare staple, in particular, that we’ve been calling on like crazy lately: beauty oils. At once illuminating, cleansing, and restoring, they’re the ultimate get-gorgeous fix in our morning and evening routines, thanks to everything from anti-aging botanicals, to hyper hydrating properties. Here we share four key benefits behind the everyday essential.
1: Pepping dull skin
Oils have long been known to stand up to wrinkles, sun spots, and dull, uneven skin tone. With only a few drops, elixirs containing age-defying botanical and seed oils—including chia, pumpkin, rose and ylang ylang—can help to create a more radiant and youthful appearance.
2: Just add moisture
The secret behind many a glowing complexion and shiny mane? Moisture, moisture and moisture. Oils such as tea tree, argan, geranium and coconut are just a few of the stars in some of our favorite hydrating blends.
3: Clean thinking
It may seem a counter-intuitive idea, but oils are expert cleansers. Formulas enriched with almond, apricot, and olive can gently remove impurities and clear pores without stripping away your skin’s vital nutrients. Thanks to emulsifiers, they rinse right away for a fresh, clean finish.
4: Soothe operator
Extra-sensitive complexions require special attention, which is where soothing oils such as chamomile, sage, and sandalwood come in, helping to calm skin and reduce the appearance of redness. If your mood also mellows, you can thank their aromatherapeutic properties—just one more perk of an oil-savvy beauty routine.
