Oil ME

We’ve done our research to better understand how using oil can affect your skin. As with use of any product, there are positives and negatives. The effect to your skin and body are dependent upon the quality of ingredients; your skin’s response to them; and how and when the product is used.

Oil is an essential part of your body care routine. As a product, it is multi functional and can make a huge difference in your skin’s appearance. The right oil can help provide additional moisture and keep skin soft and glowing after it has come in contact with water and [harsh] cleansers.

When using the right oil and/or correct application, oil can provide three major skin benefits:

  • moisture
  • protection from fungal and bacterial infections
  • provision of flexibility

When using the wrong oil and/or incorrect application, oil can cause three serious skin issues:

  • premature aging
  • dryness
  • breakouts

Our skin produces oil (aka sebum) naturally; it may be difficult to think that it can also be harmful. However, it is. Although it provides moisture, it is primarily a barrier between skin and the environment. So, if skin is dry or dehydrated and a fat evaporating oil is applied, there is no way to get necessary moisture on or into skin’s deeper layers. Basically, the skin is deprived of necessary moisture until the oil is removed. During this time, lipid ratios become imbalanced and skin starts to breakdown. In order to be effective, skin must be moisturized before oil is applied.

To reap the best benefit, use an oil that works best for your skin type. And, follow a solid skin and body care routine the includes the application of products in the appropriate order. Oil is a great addition to your daily routine that can help keep skin naturally glowing and supple.
