We know the word oil and your face may not seem like the best mix, especially if you have skin that’s prone to breakouts. You might have sensitive skin and the thought of slathering your complexion in oil may seem like a strange concept. But we want to change your mind on using oils for your face.
Natural oils have been used for skincare for centuries. At Aromatic Ingredients, we are seeing the beauty market shift from creams and lotions, to the now popular serums and oils to hydrate and nourish your face. But you may still be asking which oils should you use, and what’s the real difference between them all?
We have named the oils we are getting the most requests for to help give your complexion a radiant, healthy glow and the types of skin they are being used for from dry and sensitive through to problem and oily.
