3 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Facial Oils

Our Top Three!


Facial oil may be one of the skincare products you haven’t touched yet. Maybe you’ve stayed away because you have oily skin or perhaps you think that your skin is nourished enough and doesn’t need extra hydration. Facial oil, however, is not one of those skin care products reserved solely for dry skin – really, practically anyone can use facial oil as a beneficial part of their skincare routine. The hydrating benefits are real, but facial oil can also boost your skin’s natural glow and keep it better protected against damaging free radicals. For skin that is nourished, glowing and protected, here are our top 3 reasons why you should try them.

Facial oil seals in moisture and adds extra nourishment. While anyone, even those with oily skin, can benefit from facial oil it can be especially nourishing to dry skin. If you are experiencing dry skin because of the weather, or if you typically have dry skin, facial oil can help boost your moisturiser’s hydrating efforts. When facial oil is applied after your moisturiser it seals in all of the hydrating ingredients, making your skin more likely to hold onto that added hydration. Apply a few drops in the morning and at night after your moisturiser if you have dry skin. For all other skin types, consider applying it after your cleanser and toner. 

Facial oil promotes a healthy glow. Your skin may appear dull and dry as you age – this is common because your skin will produce less natural oils as you age. Your skin may also look dull if your body is dehydrated or if you haven’t had enough sleep. Dullness may also occur if you don’t exfoliate enough. No matter the cause of dull skin, facial oil can help restore moisture and encourage glowing skin. Our Rānā Facial Serum is formulated with eight essential oils and is lightweight and non-greasy so that it absorbs quickly. 

Facial oil can help your foundation apply more smoothly. The silky, luxurious feel of facial oil makes it a great skincare product to apply before your concealer or liquid foundation. If your skin is dry, flaky or has blemishes it can be difficult to apply makeup with a seamless finish. Facial oil helps your makeup brushes glide across the skin for a flawless finish, making it less likely to clump or streak. 

Don’t let the idea of applying oil to your skin keep you from trying this valuable skin care product. Facial oils are formulated for your face, so it won’t clog your pores if applied correctly. If you are still leery, apply a few drops less than what the package suggests, test the facial oil and then adjust the amount used if you like the results.


Until next time...Grow Wild!
