for some reason, facial oils are one of those things that people either love and swear by, or absolutely hate with a burning passion and refuse to put on their face. but, why do sooo many people hate them? let’s just go ahead and assume that those people who hate them truly have no idea what they’re missing out on... no idea at all! facial oils are that girl and we're here to tell you why! here are 3 reasons why you need to add a facial oil to your routine for that metro-boomin' type of glow!
1. facial oils are an anti-aging secret weapon
facial oils are known for being rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids. together, these ingredients are an anti-aging mastermind! antioxidants help to protect our skin from free radical damage, caused by environmental stressors – basically they help to keep all the bad stuff from getting into your skin and causing skin conditions that nobody wants (or has time for). antioxidants also help to naturally brighten the skin tone and prevent fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and any other visible signs of aging. essential fatty acids, on the other hand, help to boost regeneration of healthy skin cells, so our skin can stay looking like we drank from the fountain of youth forever! no matter how old you are, who doesn’t want to age like fine wine and have baby-soft skin?
2. facial oils are for evvvverybody!
facial oils have amazing skincare benefits, and everyone can benefit from using them. no matter if you’re 16 or 50, black or yellow, and no matter if you have oily skin or dry skin – everybody can use them. facial oils collectively have a myriad of benefits, like fighting acne breakouts, sealing in hydration & keeping us super moisturized. everyone’s skin could use a great facial oil! on the flip side, all facial oils are definitely not created equal, and finding the right one can be a little difficult. some oils are too heavy (rich in linoleic acid) for the glossy girls with oilier skin, while some oils are too lightweight (rich in oleic acid) and not moisturizing/nourishing enough for those with drier skin. when people try facial oils that don’t work for them, they end up hating them all and that’s exactly why face oils get a bad rep. but here’s a hack – some oils are perfect for all skin types! you don’t have to go on a crazy hunt to figure out which oils will work for you if you find one that works for everybody. kanti likuid gold luxury glo oil naturally has an almost-perfect balance of linoleic and oleic acids, making it great for all skin types and those who can’t deal with the stress of trying to figure out which facial oils will actually work for them on a chemical composition level (because who really has time, right?).
3. facial oils give you instant glass-skin
there’s nothing that says “I have an elaborate skincare regimen, drink 2 gallons of water a day, and never eat McDonald’s” than the bare-faced glow you get after applying a facial oil (even if all that stuff is the furthest thing from the truth). sure, you can use some moisturizer, but it just doesn’t do it like a facial oil does. on top of the amazing skincare benefits that were just mentioned, facial oils really lock everything together and complete your skincare routine. after cleansing, treating and hydrating your skin, it would be in vain if you didn’t lock it all in. facial oils are like the icing on your cake. icing not only adds just the right amount of sweetness to bring the cake’s flavours together, but also makes it pretty to look at. that’s exactly what facial oils do for your skin! the right oil will bring your entire skincare routine together, and make your skin look like literal glass. dewy, healthy, glowing skin? yes please.
