Why we love using facial oils
Oils are wonderfully nourishing and hydrating for the skin but they also have many other benefits including anti-oxidant, healing, balancing and anti-microbial properties. Oils are beneficial to all skin types, even oily and blemish-prone.
Oils can be used alone as a hydrator, a booster in your routine, used at night, added to your moisturiser or used on any specific areas of concern e.g scarring or patches of eczema.
