Facial oils nourish the skin and provide it with fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. These valuable substances care for and protect your skin for a long-lasting natural glow. Make sure that it is a face oil made from vegetable oils, because these are metabolized by your skin. Using mineral oils is like eating cardboard. You get full, but you don't give your body anything to use.
Facial oils should always be applied to the damp face so that they can be absorbed quickly and develop their nourishing effect. Apply the facial oil immediately after washing and massage it in gently. For an additional care effect, you can use a plant hydrosol instead of water, which you spray on. However, the facial oil absorbs most quickly in combination with the moisturizing FIVE facial serum. To do this, mix one drop of facial oil with two drops of serum in the palm of your hand and apply both products together.
A classic face cream consists of water (main component) and oils, which are combined with emulsifiers to form an emulsion. The ideal composition for our skin, because it needs moisture and fat. However, the cream concept requires a number of auxiliary substances such as emulsifiers, consistency enhancers and preservatives. All components that we do not find in the cream because of their positive effect on the skin, but to keep the product stable. A face oil, on the other hand, doesn't need any of that. It consists exclusively of nourishing vegetable oils and does not contain any fillers, preservatives or additives. Facial oils are the secret stars in skin care: pure plant power for maximum effect.
Not directly. Facial oils do not moisturize, but they do help retain water in the skin. You do this in two ways. First, high-quality vegetable oils, such as those found in natural facial oils, are related to the oils in our skin. They are metabolized by her and can integrate into the skin barrier. An intact skin barrier protects your skin from water loss, which is stored in the deeper layers of the skin. Secondly, facial oils also protect against moisture loss on the skin's surface. The light film that forms after applying the oil seals and retains the water in the skin. Note: Because facial oils are not directly moisturizing, it is important to apply them to damp skin.
If you are under 25 years old, yes. With increasing age, the water content in the skin and its ability to store moisture decreases. That's why a facial oil alone is no longer enough, the skin also needs water-binding substances such as hyaluronic acid or glycerin. That's why it's best to combine your facial oil with the moisturizing FIVE facial serum, which additionally hydrates your skin and ensures that it looks plump and fresh.
Face or body oils based on natural vegetable oils do not dry out the skin, quite the opposite! However, you have to pay attention to the handling so that your skin can absorb the valuable fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. Care oils therefore always belong on damp skin. This creates a spontaneous emulsion that nourishes and cares for your skin. Take the time to massage the care oils well into your skin and you will see that the result is anything but dry.
