Why You Should Be Using a Face Oil

What is the difference between a serum and a facial oil?


The word "serum" is widely used and can be confusing. The main purpose of a serum is to deliver high performance actives. To achieve this, it can take many different forms, such as an oil-based liquid, a gel-like formula or a fine emulsion.
A facial oil (oil-based serum) usually contains a blend of high-end plant oils and oil-soluble extracts.


What are the benefits of a facial oil?


Moisturizing is one of the most important steps in any beauty routine. Facial oils are absolutely essential for a healthy glow. It is also worth mentioning that the right facial oil can be beneficial even for oily complexions.


Here is a summary of the benefits:

 

- Provide moisturizing properties

- Strengthen the skin's barrier function

- Restore the natural radiance of the complexion

- Lock in hydration and reduce transepidermal water loss

- Often contain antioxidants that slow down the formation of the visual signs of aging

 

You may still be wondering if applying an oil will cause breakouts or improve your complexion. Unlike some heavy and greasy oils, ALPINE FLOWER FACE OIL is fast-absorbing, which means it's made up of a blend of dry oils.


How to apply


Face oil will act as a protective layer and lock in hydration. This means it should ideally be applied over your water-based serums and creams, but before your sunscreen.
