We know, it sounds like the worst combination ever—after all, you've been avoiding oils in all your beauty products for the past ten years, because no one wants to wake up with a breakout after applying moisturizer. It turns out that face oils actually do a better job of moisturizing than your facial moisturizer. Here's five reasons why you might want to change your opinion on face oil:
The wisdom of the ancients. Believe it or not, the Greeks and the Romans actually used facial oil to moisturize against the elements!
Europeans are usually a couple steps ahead of us Americans, so for what it's worth, Europe prefers facial oils to lotion.
Facial oils don't have to be filled with the same artificial preservatives that clog up lotions.
Your skin will more easily absorb the oil when it comes in its most natural state, which is a cold-pressed oil.
Oils are packed with healthy vitamins for your skin. Check your specific oil to see which ones are contained therein.
