Embrace the Glow: The Beauty of Using Oils for Your Skin

Posted by Susan Katz on Jan 23rd 2024

Trends come and go in the skincare industry. One persistent myth continues to deter many from achieving their skin's full potential – the fear of using oils. The common misconception that oils lead to greasy, oily skin has kept people at bay. At Skin Actives, we are on a mission to debunk this myth and illuminate the countless benefits of incorporating oils into your skincare routine.

Benefits of Adding an Oil Serum to Your Skincare Routine

Contrary to popular belief, oils can be a transformative addition to your skincare regimen. We advocate for the use of oil serums as an essential step in achieving radiant and healthy skin. These serums go beyond moisturizing; they provide deep nourishment, hydration, and support for a resilient and balanced skin barrier.

Imagine a serum that combines the richness of Squalane, the rejuvenating power of Rosehip Oil, the nourishment from Argan Oil, and the antioxidant benefits of Vitamin E. Skin Actives' Every Lipid Serum is a testament to the harmonious blend of these ingredients, catering to all skin types. The result? A complexion that radiates health and vitality.

Who Should and Shouldn't Use Oils

The versatility of oils makes them suitable for a wide range of skin types. Skin Actives emphasizes that everyone, regardless of their skin type, can benefit from the right oil serum. The key lies in choosing a formulation that aligns with your skin's unique needs.

For those with dry and sensitive skin, Nourishing Skin Serum is a game-changer. Crafted with Squalane, Rosehip Oil, Argan Oil, and Flaxseed Oil, this serum not only hydrates but also soothes irritated skin. The addition of Cannabidiol (CBD) ensures a gentle solution for those with red or irritated skin.

Even individuals with oily skin can embrace the benefits of oils with the right formulations. Skin Actives encourages the exploration of carefully crafted oil-based serums, ensuring a harmonious balance for all skin types.

Highlighting Skin Actives Oil-Based Products

We take pride in offering a diverse range of oil-based serums to address various skin concerns:

  • Dry to normal skin: Our Every Lipid Serum is a rejuvenating facial oil that nourishes and supports a healthy skin barrier. The combination of Squalane, Rosehip Oil, Argan Oil, and more makes it suitable for all skin types.
  • Sensitive skin: Nourishing Skin Serum is specifically designed for very dry, sensitive, or irritated skin, this serum includes Cannabidiol (CBD) to reduce itching or stinging.
  • Aging skin: Complete Lipid Restoring Oil is tailored for stressed, aging, and dry skin, this powerful formula promotes collagen synthesis and protects against sun damage.
  • Blemish-prone skin: Ultra-Clarifying Blemish Oil is a gentle spot treatment for acne-prone skin, combining salicylic acid and retinol to encourage skin renewal and target imperfections.

How to Use Oil-Based Serums

To unlock the full potential of Skin Actives' oil-based serums, follow these simple steps for a luxurious and effective application. Begin by adding 2-3 drops of the chosen serum to your palm. Gently rub your hands together to evenly distribute the product. Next, with a delicate touch, pat your hands onto your face. This ensures a nice, even coat on the skin, allowing the nourishing ingredients to be absorbed seamlessly. Incorporate this ritual into your daily skincare routine to experience the transformative effects of these carefully crafted oil serums.

How to Integrate Oils into Your Skincare Routine

Wondering where to place an oil serum in your skincare routine? Skin Actives recommends adhering to the principle of layering products from thinnest to thickest. Start with lightweight products like toners, gradually moving towards thicker formulations. The oil-based serums, being rich and deeply nourishing, should find their place as the final step in your routine. This ensures that the benefits of the oils seal in the goodness of the previous products, leaving your skin with a radiant and protected finish.
