The Benefits of Facial Oil

Facial oils are quickly gaining traction and popularity in the beauty market. But are they worth the hype? With a multitude of products available, which ones should you be implementing into your skincare routine? You may have already tried a variety of "trending" beauty products. 

Facial oils are for all skin types and the hydrating benefits are real. They can boost your skin’s natural glow and keep it better protected from dangerous, damaging free radicals. Even if your skin is already hydrated, adding facial oils to your daily routine can increase the long-term quality of your skin.

A few of the benefits:

Facial oil adds extra nourishment and helps seal in moisture. Every skin type can benefit from facial oil, but those with dry skin are in for a treat. Oils are important especially in the winter when the air is drier, or if you are experiencing dryness related to weather changes. If you typically have dry skin, facial oil can add a needed boost to your normal moisturizer! Used in tandem with a moisturizer, facial oils help seal in all of the hydrating ingredients and allow your skin hold on to moisture. All you need to do is add a few drops in the morning and at night after you moisturize to utilize the benefits!

Facial oil helps promote a healthy glow. As you age, skin changes can lead it to becoming dull and dry. Simply, your skin produces fewer natural oils as you age. Skin can also appear dull from stress, lack of sleep, unhealthy eating habits or not exfoliating enough. However, no matter the cause of dull skin, facial oil is formulated to restore moisture and encourage your skin to glow! Merlot’s Vineyard Gold Facial Oil contains pure, nourishing grapeseed oil and is ultra fine, naturally free of parabens and sulfates. It is lightweight and non-greasy so it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave your skin with excess oil.

Facial oil helps smooth application of foundation. Facial oils are silky and luxurious! They are the perfect skin care product to apply before your concealer or liquid foundation. If your skin is dry, flaky or blemished, facial oil can help prep skin for makeup application. Facial oil also allows makeup brushes to glide smoothly across your skin for a flawless, airbrushed-finished look. Say goodbye to clumps and streaks in applying your foundation!

Facial oil protects your skin from pollutants. If you apply facial oil as part of the last step of your daily skin care routine in the morning, it can act as a protective barrier for delicate skin. Especially if your skin is dry or flaky, it helps retain moisture throughout the day. Even if you do not have dry skin, it increases your normal moisturizer’s hydrating properties.

In short, adding a luxurious facial oil to your daily skin care routine can give your skin an added boost of hydration! Try out Merlot’s latest, Vineyard Gold Facial Oil, and see for yourself!
