According to the media and all the information we have consumed before we knew we were even consuming the information all paint oil as the bad boy. They all paint oil as just bad and they advice that we stay away from it. They claim that oils are responsible for oily skin and since oily skin breaks out, scrubbing off the oil will lead to less breakout. Right….well they are dead wrong.
During my skincare class I learnt how to make serums using oils. We used all these exotic orishirishi oils to make a serum. I was skeptical about using the serum but I wanted to experiment and try new things. I used all the products we made and I eventually got to use the oily serum with no hopes. Boy was I amazed at the result. I used the oily serum at night before I slept and I was blown away with all the blocked skin pores that became clear. My skin pore was as clear as sunlight. It was as if I was looking into a microscope and it took years off my face. I repeated the experiment and I loved the result. Since then whenever I see that my skin is acting up my trusty oil cocktail does the trick.
Some reasons why oils are the bomb dot com
- Oils are packed with vitamins C and E among other antioxidants it has which help to reverse the clock literally
- Oils have a higher concentration of active ingredients. You get the active ingredients full strength
- Oils help to reverse sun damage.
- Some oils help fight skin blemish examples include Rose-hip oil, Borage oil among others.
Not all oils are created equal. The type of oils you use depends on your skin type, your skin goals and the time you use it. I advice that you use it at night. Go to bed shiny and wake up glowing like I do. Frequency of application depends on how much your skin can handle. But I advice everyday if u can or once in every two days.
