Always Go Organic
Choose facial oils that are made our of organic ingredients. Why? Many of the ingredients we put onto our skin is absorb into our bloodstream. Organic ingredients often have fewer toxins, do not have any unnecessary additions that will dilute the benefits of the oil, and is better for the environment. So look for a plant-based organic facial oil and enjoy the amazing benefits our planet has to offer.

Many fear they will break out when using a facial oil. The key to using face oils and actually getting benefits from them is finding the rights oil for you. Talk to a dermatologist or do some research on the ingredients in the facial oil to find out their individual benefits.
How to Apply
Facial oils can be used both on morning and in evenings. They can be combined with other products as serums (to treat) and moisturizers (to lock in hydration) to get enhanced effects.
Don't rub the oils into your skin like you would a moisturizer. Instead, dab or pat the oils, pushing them into your pores. This will help your skin absorb the oil and make use of its benefits much quicker. Since face oils contain such concentrated amounts of nutrients, a couple of drops is all you need to deliver the benefits to your skin.
