THIS IS HOW TO APPLY YOUR BODY OIL

 

 

 

Apply it first

This first nugget is probably the most controversial. Your oil journey starts sooner than you expect, the moment you finish cleansing your skin. “When your skin is still damp, that’s when you apply your oil. And follow it with some cream. It mixes really nicely with the drops of water still on my skin and seals in the moisture.

Applying oil first is especially important when it comes to oils with active ingredients, like retinol. These oils need easier, unobstructed access to your skin and shouldn’t be layered on top of other products. As for other oils, you can apply those after moisturizer if you must but it makes it all a lot messier.

Massage, don’t pat

Unless you’re working with a super active (and super expensive) blend, massage oil into your skin in swift, upward movements. You get that more relaxing benefit and this way improves the circulation. 

But then pat excess

So when should you absolutely pat. After application. Because oils are, well, oily. Take a towel to lightly soak up any excess that’s sitting on your skin. Just because it’s an oil doesn’t mean you need to be greasy.

Use it as a moisturizer

So the basics. A lotion or moisturizer is, more or less, a combination of fat—oils, butters, their synthetic substitutes—and water. You know what this means. Make your own moisturizer, folks. And use your skin as the mixing bowl. Apply when your skin is still damp to help the oil emulsify with the water. And that’s it! 

Don’t over do it

You don’t need to oil up every day. In fact you shouldn’t. The skin reacts better if you balance. Use exfoliation, serums, modern skincare systems, in combination with your oils, but avoid using [oils] every day because they won’t balance out your skin. Create your own little apothecary and bring things in and out of rotation.
