I love using facial oils and I’ve personally found that they’re very good for me. In fact, in recent times, I’ve been focusing a lot on facial oils and have been neglecting using serums. But happily, the oils seem to be working well enough that I don’t feel the need to use a serum unless it’s a hydrating serum. Yes, I’m afraid even the use of my old standby of the EL ANR serum has fallen on the wayside. It isn’t to say that I’ll never use it again. I will, but in recent times because I’m paring back on my skincare routine for a while, facial oils fill that gap that a serum would otherwise fill, and in many ways, fills it better.
It is also rather heartening that since my renewed interest in facial oils, many brands now carry good quality oils and I’m seeing a bit of renaissance in the beauty industry with many new facial oils being launched and made available under many brands, including the mainstream brands. I think it’s great! Choice is always good 😀
However, I also know that a lot of people struggle to use facial oils and to get over the notion of putting oil on their skin so after months of experimenting, I’ve narrowed it down to 3 very simple ways to get the most benefit out of using face oils. I call it the 3 M’s of using facial oils 😀
