Face oil: a scrumptious texture for a radiant glow

Face oil a scrumptious texture for a radiant glow

"The quality of face oils has dramatically improved over the years. Nowadays they have a targeted action and a texture that's similar to serums. They boast a variety of active ingredients that are blended with a vegetable oil base: anti-ageing, moisturising, soothing... They may contain essential oils to boost their efficiency. The result? These powerful formulae are as effective as serums, yet maintain the nourishing, repairing and regenerating properties of an oil.

"Gorgeous to the touch and bursting with active ingredients, every single drop will tone, smoothe, moisturise and brighten your complexion.

Plus they won't leave behind a greasy film, thanks to their light, easily absorbed texture. A nourishing, oily texture that's a pleasure to use, they're quickly soaked up by skin, meaning you won't need to wait before applying your make up! In other words, face oils are a one way ticket to a flawless complexion! What's more, you'll be able to see the results in no time at all. Easy to apply, face oils can be used on their own or as part of a layering beauty routine, a wonderfully self-indulgent trend inspired by Korean women.

The winning combo? In the morning and/or at night, apply a face oil followed by a serum and moisturiser.

"Quick to apply and easily absorbed, face oil is an excellent primer that can be used in a number of ways.

Here are 3 ways you can pamper your skin whilst giving it back its glow.

- During the day to nourish your skin: apply three drops to clean, damp skin and smooth across your face.

For maximum effect, lightly tap your face - this will help your skin absorb its goodness. If your skin's dry, you can use it instead of a serum and apply it just before your moisturiser.

- In the evening for a dazzlingly radiant complexion: face oil's great for brightening fragile or dehydrated skin. The trick: apply a drop to your cheekbones, nose, chin and lip contour for a lovely, dewy glow.

- In the morning as a make up primer: face oil works really well as a base. Your make up will be easier to apply and last longer, without accentuating any signs of ageing.
