Who says oil should be nowhere near our faces? As dewy, luminous skin never leaves our sight, it comes as no surprise that beauty oils continue to be a hit.
To help you get glowing this party season, here’s how you should be using those wonder oils:
1. Put your best (glowing) face forward
Mix loose shimmer pigment (try powder highlighters) with a beauty oil and tap along the cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and brow bones for an extra-glow up factor.
When applied on the face, this 100% rosehip seed oil naturally leaves a healthy-looking sheen, sans the greasy texture.
2. Wake up with hydrated skin
Worried about looking like a grease ball by day? Infuse the beauty oil into your p.m. routine for a midnight recovery instead. Do this right after you cleanse, leave it on, and wake up with a smoother face.
Its texture isn’t too thick, making it easily absorbed by the skin. For an added bonus, its luxurious scent will leave you feeling pampered all night.
3. Even out your skin tone
Beauty oils go way beyond the glow. If you’re having trouble correcting dark marks on your face, oils can help even out skin tones and improve the appearance of scars too.
With its active ingredient called Purcellin oil, this wonder bottle goes deep within the skin and promotes skin renewal, leaving you with a more even complexion.
4. Prep your pout
Apart from your face (see number 3), dab a multi-purpose oil on your lips to keep it hydrated overnight, leaving you with a prepped pout in the morning. Gliding a lipstick will come at ease!
This sunflower oil, housed in a pocket-sized tube, gets the job done without feeling too heavy or sticky on the lips.
