5 reasons why facial oils should be part of your daily skincare routine | Kosmea
Posted February 3, 2022
Facial oils infuse the skin with vitamins and minerals, hydrating and nourishing the skin after a day out in the sun, the wind or even under artificial lights in the office. At Kosmea, we recommend applying a facial oil as part of your daily skincare regime.
We’ve developed two very fine facial oils that have helped customers maintain healthy skin and treat a variety of skin conditions. Due to their superfine structure, our oils penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, going to work to restore and replenish moisture and nutrients that the skin needs every day. Keep reading to find out more about the benefits of facial oils.
1. Facial oils hydrate the skin
In the office all day in air conditioning, out in the wind, cold and dry weather? These and many other environmental conditions cause dryness and sensitivity in the skin. Facials oils have the wonderful benefit of locking in moisture because they are lipophilic which means they work together with the natural oils that your skin produces. Therefore Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil does not clog pores, rather it is readily absorbed and will soothe and hydrate sensitive and dry skin.
2. Facial oils provide a protective barrier
Because of their lipophilic nature, facial oils are deeply absorbed and fortify the skin’s natural barrier, protecting it from environmental pollutants and smog which cause free radical damage to healthy skin cells.
3. Facial oils add nutrients
UV rays and the environment cause healthy cells to deteriorate which leads to photoaging, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Rosehip Oil is rich in Vitamin A and essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and 6). These potent nutrients restore and rejuvenate the skin by stimulating and supporting the cell renewal process, therefore reducing the appearance of fine lines, ageing spots and scarring.
4. Facial oils maintain the right balance of oil on your skin
Acne and other inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema are calmed and soothed by using our facial oils. For example, acne is caused by the overstimulation of sebaceous glands which are responsible for producing sebum.
Stripping the oils from your skin makes acne worse because the skin responds by producing more oils to restore the balance of natural oils required for protection. Our facial oils restore this balance and do not leave an oily residue as they are readily absorbed into the deeper layers of the skins.
5. Facial oils help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
The skin is made up of a fine network of elastin and collagen fibres which are in a constant cycle of regeneration keeping your skin looking youthful and fresh. The skin sheds old ceils while new ones are being formed. This process slows down with ageing but facial oils which are absorbed deeply into the skin layers where this cycle is occurring, support this restorative and regeneration process, boosting the skin’s resilience and quality.
