They Lock in Moisture
Temperatures that are too cold or too hot can suck the moisture from the skin. Loss of moisture leads to dry, flaky skin and premature fine lines and wrinkles. Using a moisture-locking face oil can be much more effective than moisturizing with lotions and creams. Moisturizing with a vitamin and mineral-packed face oil can nourish and plump the skin, keeping it hydrated and healthy.
They Trap Nutrients While Blocking Pollutants
Face oils are lipophilic, meaning they can penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water, vitamins, and minerals. Some oils create a natural skin barrier, helping to block pollutants and smog which can lead to premature aging and create unwanted wrinkles.
They Can Reduce Wrinkles.
Our skin is constantly exposed to ultraviolet light, a set up for free radical damage, which leads to wrinkles and discolorations. Using a facial oil packed with antioxidants (like our Brilliant Baobab Oil) can prevent damage from free radicals.
They Can Shrink Enlarged Pores
Some face oils not only block pollutants, but they can also pull out grime and unwanted fats from pores, making them appear smaller. But not just any oil will do. Look for higher-end oils like baobab, jojoba, and macadamia. Baobab oil has the added benefits of being antibacterial, which can help prevent clogged and infected pores.
They’re A Perfect Makeup Primer
Lightweight, quick-absorbing oils like baobab and pumpkin seed oil quickly absorb into the skin, giving an instant plumping effect while creating a smoother surface for better makeup application.
