Best Facial Oils

Best Facial Oils


Does the mere thought of using facial
oils make you cringe? Ever thought about using a facial oil but were afraid of
waking up to a grease-slicked face or a face full of pimples? Although there are
quite a number of facial oils available for the skin, I actually looked at 79. No,
really… I did look at 79 facial oils! So I narrowed it down to several factors.
Although there are a lot of beneficial facial oils out there, I am actually
going to focus on some that are not quite as common as the ones that you
hear. And how I based it on was, number one, an oil that you could use for dry,
aging skin, all the way down to the other end of the spectrum for Acne skin — or
breakout-prone skin — as well as the availability — how available it was to be
able to purchase this — and the longer the shelf-life. So a lot of oils, especially
nut-based oils, they don’t last as long, they go rancid very quickly. So I looked
at the shelf-life as well as the pricing of them. And I wanted everyone who used a
facial oil, if you decided to use a facial oil, to get the most BANG for your
buck. Meaning, that it had a whole array of more beneficial ingredients into the
oil. Now if you’re wondering what the difference is between a facial OIL and a
SERUM, serums are always going to be penetrated a lot more quicker because
the serums, they can make the delivery system more efficient and more
concentrated. But natural oils is a natural way of delivering some of the
benefits of what the oil can bring to your face. Hey there! My name is Christy
of Go See Christy Beauty Boutique and if you haven’t been following our videos,
we have been treating skin conditions such as Acne, aging, hyperpigmentation, as
well as other skin conditions for over TEN years.
So in this video we are going to be talking about some of the best facial
oils for dry and aging skin. So if you think you’re going to be addressing
dehydration of the skin by just adding oils, oils do NOT help with hydrating the
skin. So make sure you catch our video on how to treat DRY versus DEHYDRATED skin
on the “i” link below, as well as we’ll put a link in the description below so you
can watch that after this video. So generally speaking, oils are higher in
Oleic Acid and they are better to treat DRY skin. So if you’re not sure whether
you actually have dehydrated skin or dry skin, then again, make sure you catch that
video on how to treat dry versus dehydrated skin.
Now oils that are higher in Oleic Acid tend to be a little bit heavier, they
tend to be thicker. Now they are OCCLUSIVE. So they DON’T add moisture to
the skin. “Occlusive” means that it prevents-, it sits on top of the skin and
it prevents moisture that you already have in your skin from escaping or
evaporating. So if you already have skin that doesn’t have enough moisture, it is
NOT going to add more moisture to your skin. Because it does tend to have an
occlusive benefit to the skin, it does tend to clog pores in some skin types. So
this is better for, again, people who tend to have dry skin and they don’t produce
enough oil. They also tend to have a longer shelf-life than oils that are higher
in Linoleic Acid but the oils that are higher in Oleic Acid, they tend to have
more anti-inflammatory properties and they have more skin-softening properties.
Now people with oilier skin and breakout- prone skin, for those of you who CAN use
a facial oil — because there are some of you who can’t use it at all — they tend to
do better with oils that are higher in Linoleic Acid, and that is because the
consistency of that is a lot thinner, it’s a lot smoother, and how it can help
the skin is it actually helps restore it-, the skin’s own natural barrier function —
so it prevents scaling of the skin. So if you’re finding this information helpful,
or you watched our other videos and you haven’t subscribed yet, please go
ahead and hit the SUBSCRIBE button, and don’t forget to hit the notification
bell so you will be notified of our next video, which will be HOME REMEDIES that
you can do to treat dry and dehydrated skin. Okay, so the first one is Sea
Buckthorn Berry oil. It rates really low on the comedogenic scale — so what that
means it’s really, really low in causing clogged pores — it also has a longer shelf-life and it is easier to acquire. It also has a really high absorption rate, so
it’s really good for skin conditions, whether you have a really, really dry
skin, itchy skin, Eczema skin, as well as Acne-prone skin. It’s also great for
wrinkles because it’s really high in anti-oxidants, Flavonoids, and Keratines. So it has Vitamin A, C, and E as well as Lycopene. Which, as you know, if you’ve been watching my videos,
the anti-oxidants will improve skin metabolism, which then helps the wrinkles,
as well as the skin-, the skin’s ability to renew its own brand new skin cells. And
it is the only known plant source that has the COMPLETE Omega family — meaning
Omega 3, 6, 7, and 9. And again, if you’ve been watching our videos on this, it also
prevents GLYCATION, it helps neutralize Glycation. and Glycation is an aging
product-, or aging PROCESS that breaks down Collagen and Elastin. So if you
don’t know what Glycation, is make sure you check out our videos on ant-, the Anti-Aging Series. So it actually neutralizes Glycation, which is great for a natural oil. Now here is our PRO TIP: You can use this oil
as an oil-infusion treatment. And click the link to SUBSCRIBE and get the
notification because that video will be coming out afterwards on how to do HOME
treatments for remedies to treat dry and aging skin. So you can use this
oil for an oil-infusion treatment. Now the next one is Tomato Seed oil. So this
one also has a longer shelf-life, it has a high absorption rate, rates really
low on the comedogenic scale as well, and it is best used for skin conditions
such as: Eczema, Psoriasis, dry skin, aging skin, and age spots. It’s also loaded with
anti-oxidants, such as — here’s the mouthful — Carotenoids, Phytosterols, and Flavonoids.
And these all help neutralize the free radicals that age your skin. So this last
one is Prickly Pear Seed oil or Barbary Fig oil. This also has a longer shelf-life, it is lower in the comedogenic scale — not as low as the other two that I
mentioned but it’s still fairly low on that — and it’s great for aging skin as
well as Acne, because, again, it’s filled with a lot of anti-oxidants.
Now this seed oil has 150% MORE of Vitamin E than
Argan oil, and again, this also is filled with Carotenoids and Flavonoids, and
Vitamin C. So it is great oil for aging. Now why this is great for those of you
who tend to have oilier skin or breakout-prone skin is this oil actually
helps MINIMIZE the appearance of larger pores — so it actually tightens up
the pores. It actually helps with hydration and… when I say “helps with
hydration” it actually helps INCREASE your skin’s ability to hold in the
moisture. So remember, if you have a serious hyperpigmentation, or age spots,
or some pretty serious Acne, serums are always going to
be better because they have better delivery systems and they also have a
higher amount of performance ingredients versus natural facial oils. But I did
want to go ahead and offer you the option of these three oils. So what I’d
like for you to do is comment below and let us know which oil did you think was
the best one and I’ll go ahead and include the product links in the
descriptions below.
