Oils In your Skincare Routine

Choose the right oil for your skin type

If you’re familiar with our line, you know that we’re big proponents of using oils in your skincare routine. Since our skin naturally produces oils to protect itself, it is able to absorb and utilize oil more readily than an emulsified product (aka lotion).

Oils In your Skincare RoutineThis means that using oils in your skincare routine allows for deep penetration of the healing qualities found in them. We infuse our facial oils with herbs and add essential oils for additional healing properties, but using a simple oil itself also provides the skin with significant benefits.

Since everyone’s skin is unique to their own bodies, it’s important to use the right kind of oil for your skin. It’s entirely possible to over or under moisturize your skin, which can lead to breakouts, irritation, clogged pores, increased dryness, and/or dehydration.

Because our facial oils are designed to work with specific skin types, each contains a specific blend of carrier oils.

We wanted to take some time to explain the differences between these oils and what each of them does for your skin.
