facial oils

I love facial oils! The radiance and plumpness that they give to my skin is brilliant. Especially for winters my skin just drinks it up! But you know the best oils to add to your skin care routine? Well this post is a must read if you also want to get into facial oils. And NO! They do not give you clogged pores and breakouts 😀

Oils have a bad reputation in the market and many are really scared to use them. Especially our oily skin beauties. When I made my serum and gifted it to my sister she was so scared to use it! But the truth is that not all oils clog pores. Oils in fact give you the required moisture and make your skin soft and plump. But if you are still scared using oils on your face just add a few drops of tea tree oil and you should be good! 🙂

5 Facial Oils to add in Your Skin care Routine:

1. JOJOBA OIL:

The composition of Jojoba oil is very similar to your actual skin composition. It is because of this, the oil just disappears into your skin! I love using this oil and find it very versatile. It can also be used for your body and hair (lovely right?) The presence of Jojoba oil has replaced animal fats in the skin care business since it closely resembles our sebum. Jojoba oil is a carrier oil hence can be used on its own. Additionally, it can also be an amazing accompaniment with any essential oils 🙂

2. GRAPE SEED OIL:

The black grape seed oil is pure love to me! Do you want to see your fine lines (premature) just vanish within 3 months of time? Use grape seed oil. Also a carrier oil I love mixing this with any oil or using it on its own. It seeps into any skin type (trust me) and also works on STUBBORN ACNE. Did I just say an oil working amazing on ACNE? Hell YES! Try it out 🙂

3. ROSE HIP SEED OIL:

Early signs of aging, dark spots, acne blemishes, anti-aging, loss of moisture, dull skin – If you want to heal it all, you cannot miss this oil! The essentials fatty acids in rose hip seed oil are responsible in making your skin plump and rejuvenated. It is so powerful in healing dry skin that it heals cracked lips, heels, knees and elbows. Having said that oily skin beauties must not miss this either since it works like a charm in restoring moisture in your skin too, just don’t over use it 🙂

4. PURE ALMOND OIL:

Almond oil had to be on the list! But the reason I mentioned ‘pure’ was because there are so many fakes available in the market. You need to check the smell, color and consistency before picking it up. I trust local market more than anything for almond oil. Usually Ayurveda stores, store good quality almond oil at very reasonable prices. Almond oil gives your skin a high dose in Vitamin E that helps your skin heal from any irritation/issues. It also helps in healing scars, wounds and blemishes. You might need to work on this oil for it to absorb, but nothing that you cannot fix; after a nice massage you will feel like you have no oil over your face 🙂

5. CASTOR OIL:

I was initially not so much in awe of this oil, but then I learnt that I was not using it right. Castor oil is tricky to work with hence be careful or you might dry up your skin. Take a little castor oil and mix it with any of the above mentioned oil say in 1:3 ratio. Once you get used to working with castor oil the benefits are astounding! Castor oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, making it ideal for breakout-prone skin. It is high in unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, proteins, and minerals. In addition to helping reduce acne-causing bacteria and inflammation associated with breakouts, it can help heal discoloration and scars from acne.

As much as I really wanted to add ARGAN OIL in the list of facial oils, I skipped it because of its price and the fake ones available in abundance in the market. However if you do come across a really good quality Argan oil, buy it without thinking twice! You can also read this article to know the difference between real and fake argan oil.

Important Tip: Always use oils over damp face for it to absorb better. This was told to me by an Ayurvedic doctor 🙂

These facial oils are wonderful when used on your skin and trust me you will feel and see the results soon after you start using them. Add them into your skincare routine and let me know how you find them!? 🙂

Love and Light,
