Keep reading to see why you must invest in facial oils from Teami Blends and which ones would work best for you.
What are facial oils?
As the name suggests, facial oils are oil-based formulas that are designed to be used on the skin. Most of them are formulated using botanical and essential oils, plant extracts, and antioxidants, minimizing the chances of breakouts and clogged pores.
Although an organic beauty product, it is important to find the best facial oil product for your skin, to reap its complete benefits. The facial oil ingredients act as emollients, softening the skin and promoting skin rejuvenation. Facial oils infused with plant oils are also rich in antioxidants, which help in neutralizing free radicals in the sun’s UV rays, protecting and reversing the damage caused by it. The antioxidants also provide a barrier from environmental pollutants. In short, the right facial oil can enhance the natural strength and firmness of your skin, leaving your skin looking healthy and radiant.
Some of the common oils seen in facial oil products are rosehip oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, grape seed oil, marula oil, tea tree oil, etc. To minimize the potency of the plant-based oils, facial oils also contain other soothing ingredients, making the final product considerably diluted and gentle on the skin.
To experience the full benefits of facial oils, our experts recommend understanding your skin type and what exactly your skin needs. Here is how you can do it.
Skin types and needs
Every skin type reacts differently to different skin products. So before you jump ahead and grab something, even an organic beauty product, read the label to ensure that those products comply with your skin type and specific needs.
To do this right, first, you need to understand your skin type. There are four skin types- normal skin, oily skin, dry skin, and combination skin. So how do you identify what type you have?
Start by thoroughly cleansing your face with our Teami Blends Superfood Liquid Cleanser. Pat your face dry and wait for half an hour or so for your skin to return to its natural state. Once your face is dry, observe your skin. Look closely at your forehead, nose, and cheeks. If you look shiny, your skin may be oily. On the other hand, if your skin feels tight or flaky chances are that you have a dry skin type. If your cheeks look normal, but your forehead and nose look shiny, it may suggest that you have a combination skin type.
Once you have a better understanding of your skin type, you can choose the best skin care products that work for your face.
Facial oils are great for dry skin as it traps moisture in the skin and prevents water loss. The oils also strengthen the skin by penetrating the skin layers and keeping it hydrated. Many facial oil products are well suited for oily skin types as well. Contrary to popular belief, plant-based oils will help balance out your natural oils, making your skin hydrated, but less oily in effect. For combination skin and acne-prone skin, the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of the facial oils cleanse out the toxins and excess oil, balancing out the sebum production.
Benefits of facial oils
There is a reason why dermatologists recommend facial oils. Now that we know that facial oils are for all, let us look into their benefits.
- Reduced wrinkles
As people age, their skin loses its elasticity, making it sag and wrinkle. Too much-unprotected exposure to the sun's UV rays also sets for free radical damage, leading to wrinkles and sunspots. The antioxidants in facial oils fight the free radicals, preventing further aging of your skin and thereby the wrinkles. Additionally, its hydrating property helps maintain skin elasticity by promoting cell rejuvenation.
- Perfect makeup primer
Facial oils are also great makeup primers as they seep deep into the skin and brighten it from underneath. It provides necessary hydration to your skin, creating a plumping effect. This gives you a great base to apply your makeup.
- Shrink large pores
If you have large or enlarged pores on your face, facial oils will help make them less noticeable. The oils go into the pores, pulling out fats and dirt from them, thereby effectively shrinking them.
- Soothe rashes and reduce pimples
Facial oils have anti-inflammatory properties, which help in soothing irritated skin. The oils work in reducing redness from pimples. Some oils are also useful in treating acne. A little number of oils keep the acne from drying out and pull out grime from your face, keeping the skin healthy.
