We know that for years, the rule of thumb has been to avoid oil in skin care and makeup at all costs. It’s true, low-quality oils, like mineral oil, are still considered a no-no for healthy skin. But today’s beauty oils contain the best ingredients available to give your skin, hair and nails a soft, silky-smooth feel and a major boost of moisture. We love them for spring! Here’s some of our favorite daily uses for beauty oils:
1). Apply a fragrant oil, like LIERAC Huile Sensorielle Aux 3 Fleurs, to your wrists, neck, backs of your knees and any other spots you would normally spritz with perfume. Your body heat will activate the scent and it’ll stay put till evening. Bonus: Huile Sensorielle reminds us of vacation and cheers us right up on still-cold, late-winter days.
2). What if we told you you could make your favorite moisturizer even better? Just add two or three drops of PHYTOMER Rosee Soin to your go-to lotion or cream for a boost of extra hydration and a gorgeous, dewy glow.
3). The ends of our hair are super susceptible to dryness and heat styling damage because they make up the oldest and weakest section of growth. Adding three or four drops of NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil can help soften hair and prevent split ends and breakage.
4). Beauty oils make wonderful lightweight moisturizers all on their own! Remember, oil attracts oil, so you’ll actually be drawing out impurities—no need to worry about clogged pores or a greasy finish, we promise. Warm a few drops of Eminence Facial Recovery Oil between your palms and apply it to your face, neck and decollete.
5). Dry, cracked nails and cuticles are no match for a high-quality oil. Just a drop per hand of Dr. Hauschka Neem Nail & Cuticle Oil can help smooth and soften cuticles and promote healthy nail growth.
