How to Use Our Facial Oil for Acne Prone Skin
We recommend using our Facial Oil for Acne Prone Skin as a serum or or as a moisturizer.
If you are using our facial oil as a serum, use your cleanser and toner first, before pumping the facial oil directly into your hand. Use your fingers to gently massage the serum into your skin with a gentle upwards motion. Follow up with the rest of your skincare routine.
If you are using our facial oil as a moisturizer, use your cleanser, toner and serums first, before pumping the facial oil directly into your hand. Add your daily or nighttime moisturizer to your hand and mix together before applying.
We suggest using this facial oil with other gentle moisturizers, like lotion or gel-based moisturizers, in order to create a complete moisturizing strategy to support your acne routine. Moisturizing is a key part of managing and fighting acne, since many acne treatments can leave your skin feeling dry or irritated. Dry skin can lead to extra sebum or oil production, resulting in more acne.
A complete moisturizing strategy will ensure that your skin is benefitting from the 3 categories of moisturizer ingredients: humectants, emollients and occlusives. Our facial oils are emollients, meaning they fill in the gaps in your skin barrier and make your skin feel smooth and soft. In addition to emollients, your skin also needs humectants to help maintain and increase your skin’s water content, and occulsives to seal moisture in. Finding a moisturizing routine that works for you and contains all 3 categories of ingredients will keep your skin healthy and happy.
