Oil Essentials

When you think of oils, the first thing that probably comes to mind is that it is an invitation for disaster in terms of putting it on your body or face. However, recent beauty and health studies show that there are good oils on the market that help nourish and beautify your skin. People tend to think that we always have to get rid of oil. In reality, however, the more you try to remove, the harder your skin works to replace excess oil (which creates more oil). There are a lot of good oils out there that are effective antioxidants, such as Argan, passion fruit, and African Marula oils. The morning is the most beneficial time to apply a few drops onto clean skin, just before applying your foundation.

Additionally, oils help prevent irritation. Most people experience irritation caused by anti-aging ingredients. Specific oils that help heal irritated skin are Argan, yangu, and borage-seed oils.
