When it comes to beauty, I think we can sometimes suffer from an aversion to words like ‘oil’ here in the West. However, the irony is that oils offer us a wealth of benefits and well-being, especially when it comes to face oil.
Are facial oils good for your skin?
Absolutely, facial oils are good for your skin!
You can use them to nourish, moisturise and protect the complexion, something most of us want from our skincare regime. Importantly, don’t be fooled into thinking oils are going to make your skin greasy! The right face oil can serve as an astringent to cleanse the complexion. A premium quality facial oil should feel light, easily absorbable and incredibly nourishing.
So, let’s explore the best Franchine Young organic facial oils for your skin…
What are the best face oils?
Our organic facial oils are designed to nourish and protect your complexion. They’re both ideal for those experiencing hormonal changes, which can so often wreak havoc on the face in particular (as I have experienced first-hand).
Prickly pear oil for face – ideal for ageing, sensitive, dry and normal skin
I’ve long worshipped at the altar of prickly pear oil!
Derived from the humble cactus plant, this oil has been used for centuries to treat all kinds of skin conditions, including burns and sensitivities. A powerful antioxidant, it packs a punch of vitamins A, B and E, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and calming irritated skin. High levels of linoleic acid naturally nourish and repair damaged skin, whilst oleic acid deeply moisturises. Thanks to Phytosterols, it also acts as a water binder to help the skin seal in moisture.
This is a sensational face oil for ageing, acne-prone, sensitive and dry skin.
Argan oil for face – ideal for ageing, sensitive, acne prone and normal skin
I call this my best facial oil for turning back the clock!
Antioxidant fatty acids such as Omega 3 and Omega 9 and Vitamin E serve as an anti-inflammatory whilst deeply moisturising and promoting firmer skin. The result is a smoother, calmer complexion; I think you literally feel happy in your skin! Moreover, Argan oil is absorbed quite quickly, so if you like to rely on a face oil in the morning as well as the evening, then this is for you.
I recommend this face oil for normal, sensitive, acne prone and ageing skin.
How to use our facial oil
Ideally, follow our Mother Nature’s Method to ensure your complexion is cleansed, clean and ready to take in all that goodness.
I prefer to apply facial oil just before bed so that it has the opportunity to really settle and soak into the skin. I use a small amount of oil, no more than the equivalent of a 50p coin. Then, using my fingertips, I gently dab it onto the face. For the best facial oil experience, I use my much-loved jade roller to gently roll this over my face for the ultimate massage.
What a truly sublime way to apply the oil and prepare you for a blissful sleep!
