Importance of Facial Oils
Essential oil pairings for ALL skin types (Yes, even sensitive and oily skin!)
Heal your skin with oils! If your skin is acting up lately, now’s a good time as any to help your complexion get back on track with a facial oil. Facial oils replenish your skin’s natural moisture levels while helping protect it from future moisture loss. They’re useful in cold, dry weather when chilly winds and central heating may take a toll on your skin, and excellent during the summer months when your skin may be feeling particularly sun-parched.
#NYRbeautytip: When using essential oils, always dilute them with a carrier oil.
Carrier oils help ‘spread’ the actives in essential oils over a larger surface area more evenly, if compared to using your fave essential oils ‘neat’.
Generally, you can mix 1 drop of essential oil per teaspoon of carrier oil.
