No matter what facial oil you choose (Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil or Grapeseed Oil are a few of my faves), remember these basic tips for putting your best face forward with facial oils.
1. Treat your skin, not your sheets.
My general rule of thumb is to get ready for bed at least an hour before I hit the sack. That means after a wash, tone and treat, I have at least 45 minutes for product — oil or otherwise — to absorb into my skin…not my sheets or pillow.
2. Use as little as possible.
You can always add more. Start small, and spread the oil around in gentle, circular motions. If you find that your cheeks aren’t as lubed-up as you like, add a touch more. You don’t want to waste, and you definitely don’t want to be so slick that the oil just sits on your face all night.
3. Keep it cool.
Store your facial oils in a cool, dry and dark area. Underneath the bathroom sink is a typical place to keep your oils, but if you’re used to heating up your bathroom sink like a sauna with long, hot showers, reconsider where you store your precious oils.
