3 REASONS WHY FACE OILS ARE THE FIRST STEP TO GOOD SKIN
by Kate W. Read
Your skin can be assaulted by environmental toxins and harsh cleaners every day. The results can be damaging on a cellular level and can cause your skin to appear dehydrated, damaged, and aged. Don't worry! A high-quality face oil can help you repair that damage and get your skin looking radiant again. The most important quality of a face oil: the lipid barrier.
1. A lipid barrier traps water molecules and prevents the passage of precious moisture out of the skin.
2. A lipid barrier prevents Natural Moisturizing Factors such as free amino acids, lactic acid, urea, PCA, sugars, and inorganic salts, from leaching out. These chemicals keep the skin moist by attracting and holding onto water from the atmosphere.
3. A lipid barrier prevents environmental chemicals and biological irritants from entering skin. It protects against every-day pollutants in the air or that you come into contact with that might be causing breakouts, allergic reactions or even redness.
The bottom line? An effective, high quality face oil ensures you create an internal foundation of resilient and hydrated skin and protects your skin from external damage.
