They go skin deep
Facial oils have a small molecular structure, which allows them to easily penetrate the skin. This means that rather than the oil staying on the top layer of the skin, it can sink in further so that the skin is hydrated at a deeper level. This results in the skin feeling softer and more supple for longer. DAYTOX Natural Day and Night Facial Oil (£24.00, Ocado), contains Meadowfoam oil which not only helps maximise penetration to the lower dermis of the skin, but thanks to its long chain fatty acid structure has a cushiony effect— helping to keep makeup from settling into fine lines after hours of wear. Another advantage of Meadowfoam oil is that it is ecologically sustainable ingredient making it a popular alternative to Jojoba oil.
They encourage a facial massage
Facial oils glide onto the skin and in order to rub the oil into your face, you will naturally use a massaging technique. Massaging your face has a range of benefits from relaxing the skin; to releasing stress and tension in the face, to toning the muscles, which can over time make the skin appear more contoured and naturally sculpted. Through gradual use, this method will support a plumper and healthier complexion, thanks to the increase in blood circulation at the skin’s surface.
Makes the most of your moisturiser
All skin types can benefit from using a facial oil, not just those who suffer with dry skin. Facial oil is perfectly formulated to not clog your pores if applied correctly and the right amount. Facial oils can help boost your moisturiser’s hydrating efforts as they are more concentrated, and when applied before your moisturiser can help to seal in the hydrating and beneficial ingredients. Apply just a few drops in the morning and at night before your moisturiser to deter dehydrated skin.
Get that natural glow
As we age, natural oil production decreases, which can lead to skin looking dull and lifeless. Introducing a facial oil into your skincare routine can prevent this from happening, by replacing natural oils to achieve a youthful, dewy glow. Facial oils that include Argan Oil, found in DAYTOX Natural Day and Night Facial Oil, are packed with omega fatty acids and vitamin E which help to soothe redness and irritation, increase hydration and even reduce acne! Revealing a natural healthy glow.
Protect your skin from free radicals
DAYTOX Natural Day and Night Facial Oil (£24.00, Ocado) is a light, dry oil that easily absorbs into the skin. Containing vitamins E and C to help fortify and strengthens the skins natural barrier, and Almond oil, a powerful natural antioxidant that prevents the effect of stress and harmful ultraviolet radiation rays to the skin. This is particularly important for city dwellers who need extra protection against pollutants, which is a common culprit for developing wrinkles and the breakdown of collagen.
