Face Oils, Demystified
Face oils are definitely having a moment, but there’s still some confusion around their proper use and multitude of benefits. Some of the most common questions we get are: But will it make me break out? And: Is it really an essential product?
In short, no! Face oils will not make you break out. And, yes! Face oils are not only an essential last step to lock in moisture and nutrients, but they also have a naturally gorgeous, instantly smoothing texture to leave your skin completely luminous. Some may say they are magic.
Finding the perfect face oil can truly have transformative results for your skin - and we’re here to help! Here are our top five reasons we love them - as well as our guide to finding the right oil for you:
1) Face Oils Leave Skin Feeling Silky Smooth
Made with a pure blend of flower and plant oils, our luxurious oil treatments give skin an instant softness and suppleness that can be kind of addictive. Seriously, the oils absorb instantly into skin to see immediate benefits - so you’ll be hooked after just one use!
More than that, our face oils are packed with essential minerals, nutrients, fatty acids, and antioxidants for complete skin nourishment and a healthy glow.
2) They Mimic Your Unique Skin
Our natural oils are biocompatible with the skin’s natural oils to help balance overall oil production. This means that our face oils work uniquely for each skin type to target your specific needs.
If you have extra dry skin (hello, winter) our oils help heal parched skin by stimulating oil production. And if you have oily or blemish-prone skin, our oils, such as Neroli and Jojoba, work to control overproduction of oil by signaling to our body when there is sufficient oil present. In this way, face oils are a true master regulator!
3) Oily Skin? Yes, You Need Oil
It’s a total misconception that some skin (such as oily types) should steer clear of face oils. Finding the right face oil can help clear pores of excess sebum, while also reducing inflammation and irritation. Many of our botanical oils, such as Rosehip Seed Oil & Tamanu Seed Oil, are not only naturally antibacterial (bye, breakouts) but they also absorb instantly into skin to restore smoothness and clarity.
So, contrary to common belief, face oils are actually one of the best things you can do for your blemish-prone skin!
4) They Help Lock in Moisture
Our face oils are the perfect way to turbo-charge any moisturizer. They deliver that extra boost of hydration to seal in moisture and create a protective skin barrier.
Our face oils can be blended into your moisturizer for that extra boost, or layered on top as a final step. These oils also help skin absorb your other skincare products more effectively as well. So, if you’re not seeing the flawless skin you imagined you would from serums and moisturizers alone, an oil may just be that extra step to make it happen.
5) They Are Incredibly Multipurpose
It’s incredible to see the power of botanical oils heal so many different skin woes. Be it dehydrated, mature, oily or combination, oils can have impressive, skin enriching results.
Not only are they effective for moisturizing, but face oils are also the best way to prep skin for a perfect base to apply makeup. Unlike moisturizers alone, natural plant oils absorb into the skin hydrating as it goes, to create this silky smooth base.
However, you will probably find that you actually need less makeup! Our face oils are infused with active botanicals that stimulate and brighten dull complexions for a beautiful, dewy glow.
More still, our face oils are Team Tata favorites for their never-ending uses. Our team members have been known to use it on irritated skin, dry cuticles, or even to tame flyaways and hydrate hair. Whatever your need may be, our oils smooth and soften more than just your skin.
