If the thought of putting oils on your face brings breakouts to mind, think again. Ancient Egyptians kept their skin vibrant and flawless with all kinds of precious oils. And this old-school beauty secret is making a pretty big comeback right now. In fact, according to top dermatologists, facial oils may be that missing step in your beauty routine.
For thousands of years, Botanical oils have been used all over the world and in all ancient traditions to protect, moisten and nourish the skin. They are an excellent source of natural skin-loving nutrients such as essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Oils are very similar in composition to skin sebum, one of the components of the skin’s hydrolipidic layer, whose function is to protect the skin from the outside. That’s why oils are recognized chemically by our body and interact positively with the other compounds on our skin.
Balms and oils are a great alternative to face creams. As scary as they sound, not all are heavy or greasy. Compared to creams, oils are more concentrated which means a very small amount is needed for best results. Water based creams are diluted and often require additives to preserve the products and maximise shelf life. In contrast, oils have the unique ability to capture and store specific liposoluble botanical ingredients such as herbal extracts and essential oils, which act as natural preservatives and antioxidants, so extra additives are not necessary.
