For about 3 months I have been applying oil to my face – sounds yucky but what I’ve experienced is smooth, dewy looking, comfortable skin-despite how dry the air is right now!
I wanted to know more, and asked my Arbonne consultant, Hannah Wilhelm to elaborate on the benefits of facial oil: “As we age our skin becomes drier, tighter and it loses the elasticity of our younger years. This unfortunately leads to lines, wrinkles and a dullness that we all want to erase. Oil helps combat this!”
If you decide to try facial oil, I want to share two things I’ve learned:
1) Don’t rub: oils are applied differently than a moisturizer. Dab or pat the oil -pushing it into your pores, rather than just sliding them around on your skin’s surface. This will help your skin absorb the oil and make use of its benefits much quicker
2) Less is more: because face oils contain such concentrated amounts of nutrients a little bit goes a long way. One to three drops of your choice of oil is enough to cover your whole face and deliver the benefits your skin needs
I use Arbonne face oil because I love everything else they make, but Hannah has specifics as to why it is one of the best: “Arbonne’s oil is a multitasking, revolutionary oil. Our Intelligence Nourishing Facial Oil is made with key botanical ingredients that maximize your skins potential. Clinical testing has shown that after just 4 weeks 100% of participants showed significant improvement in skin moisture barrier protection, fine lines, wrinkles and hydration. The oil is odorless and it’s sheer, dry formula spreads smoothly over your skin creating a radiant, more even-toned complexion and luminous beauty.”
