Decoding Facial Oils
You have probably been told all your life that OIL is the arch enemy of your skin – it will make you look greasy, worsen your acne and clog pores. But guess what? Facial oils can actually change your skincare game if they are used in the right way! Intriguing, right? Let’s find out how!
Our skin naturally produces oil (sebum) and lipids that act as a layer and prevent the loss of moisture, keeping the skin firm and hydrated. However, sometimes the skin’s natural oil production does not work as it should. It can be too low – resulting in dry, flaky skin or it can be too high – resulting in oily skin. Facial oils are pure elixirs that work in harmony with our skin’s natural oils and form a protective barrier that locks in moisture, prevents the loss of water and boosts the skin’s elasticity while also targeting certain skin conditions such as dryness, acne, hyperpigmentation and so on! Facial oils have been used by people from all over the world. They are considered to be a kind of emollient and help in strengthening the outermost layer of the skin known as – Stratum Carenum. To understand better, think of your skin cells as bricks and the oil as mortar.

HOW TO USE –
A good rule to follow while layering your skincare products is to go from the lightest to the thickest or from water based to oil based. We all know that oil and water do not mix and oil can prevent water from penetrating into the skin. Thus, you should use the DLR facial oil as the last step of your skincare routine. Take a few drops on your palm and pat it gently into the skin until it’s absorbed. The best time to use a facial oil is at night as it allows your skin ample time to soak up the product while also making your other night time products more effective!
