What Is a Face Oil?

Touted as a pure and natural thanks to improving your skin, botanical facial oils — infused with plant and farm-fresh extracts — have exploded into the mainstream market lately. Still, experts often advise caution when dousing yourself, as not all oils are created equal. “I recommend avoiding essential oils or those with added perfumes, which increase the potential of skin irritation,” Dr. Nazarian says.

4 Benefits of Facial Oils:

  • Intensely hydrate without leaving a greasy residue. Look for: maracuja oil.
  • Brighten and even out your skin tone. Look for: vegetable oil.
  • Rid bacteria and soothe acne-prone skin. Look for: marula oil.
  • Calm red inflamed skin, and ease the symptoms of rosacea. Look for: rosehip oil.

How and When to Use an Oil:

Most facial oils are often used twice daily, both morning and night. They ought to be applied after facial serums and gels but before your creams and lotions. Spread a dime-size amount between your palms and pat it on, targeting the outer areas of the face, then sweeping in toward the middle, around your eyes, nose, and lips.

What am I able to Do When My Skin Gets Irritated?

Many times skin irritation, from acne to eczema, is often traced back to overzealous habits. “Unfortunately, tons of what I do is get people back to having healthy skin from overuse of products — stripping cleansers, items that over-exfoliate or contain sensitizing ingredients — which they were using as a foundation for healthy skin but it took them farther faraway from it,” Holey says. To bring your skin back to its baseline, she suggests the subsequent holistic remedies:

  • Run cold water over your pulse points, like your wrists, to lower your internal blood heat, which calms your skin, too.
  • Apply an oatmeal mask to rid yourself of inflammation. Mix dried oats with a couple of spoonfuls of water. Spread this paste on your skin, and let it sit until it’s semi-dry, then rinse.
  • Use chilled, steeped tea as a rinse that you simply splash on your face. EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), a polyphenol in tea, has an “immediate soothing effect,” Holey says.
  • Try acupuncture to enhance circulation, digestion, and immunity internally, all of which support healthy skin externally. Holey recommends weekly treatments initially, then monthly maintenance sessions.
  • Live well: you’ll read stress on your face since high levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) can weaken your skin, cause acne and even accelerate wrinkling. Holey’s advice? Exercise regularly, get your rest, meditate, or find ways to feel positive. The results will show.
