5 tips - use facial oils correctly

The skin is the largest organ in our body and serves as protection for our organism. However, our skin can only fulfill this task if we care for it with sufficient moisture. If the skin becomes too dry, protection can no longer be guaranteed and we are more susceptible to pathogens. Face oils can help support the protective function of the skin. However, it is important that the oil is used correctly. Otherwise there is a risk of skin irritation.

1. How does facial oil affect our skin?

Facial oils have the effect that our skin produces less fat itself, which can prevent blemishes. Due to the limited sebum production. In addition, facial oils are ideal for reducing wrinkles and giving the skin new elasticity. It is important to use oils that are rich in natural vitamin E, as vitamin E is an antioxidant that has the ability to switch off free radicals. Find out more about vitamin E here (Link

2. How do I use facial oils correctly?

When using facial oils, the principle less is more applies to prevent the pores from clogging. If too much of the oil is not used, it can also move in better. The best way to apply facial oils is to lightly moisten the fingertips with water and massage in a small amount of the oil. The moistened fingers make it easier to distribute the small amount of oil on the skin..

3. Finding the right facial oil Not all oils are created equall

So that you can find the right facial oil for you, you first have to find out what skin type you are. In dermatology, a distinction is made between four skin types:
  • normal skin
  • dry skin
  • oily skin
  • Combination skin
Depending on the skin type, there are different oils, which are good or less suitable. For example, if your skin is sensitive, almond oil is a suitable treatment. Almond oil is rich in palmitic acid and thus protects the skin from external influences. Our tip: The Elixir Facial Oil from TocoCare. Thanks to the natural vitamin E, this facial oil is not only ideal for daily anti-aging care, but also provides sensitive skin with sufficient moisture, relieves swelling and ensures a fresh complexion. People with combination skin can also use Elixir Facial Oil, as it contains jojoba oil, among other things. Jojoba oil ensures a natural freshness, has a moisturizing effect and the natural protective function of the skin is preserved. Vegetable oils are the first choice for oily or blemished skin. With these skin types, however, it is very important to ensure that not too much of the oil is used to prevent the pores from clogging. Grapeseed oil can be used in this case, for example, because grapeseed oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and regulates the skin's sebum production. Lavender oil would be another option for treating oily or blemished skin, as lavender has an antibacterial effect, which is particularly helpful for blemished skin.

4. Use face oil correctly, especially on blemished skin

So far, many have said that face oils are not suitable for sensitive or combination skin, as the oils only make the skin even more oily. In addition, the oils would clog the pores, which makes everything worse with acne. However, this assumption is wrong. Because, as we have already stated above, many face oils have sebum-regulating properties. It is only important that the oils are used correctly. The face must be cleaned thoroughly before use. Ideally with a natural facial soap. Then put a few drops of the respective oil (e.g. grape seed oil, wild rose oil or jojoba oil) on the still damp face, then massage it in gently.

5. Face oil as a miracle weapon for the perfect glow

To really shine in the morning, you can also mix the face oil with your foundation. One or two drops are really enough to ensure a natural glow. The skin immediately appears softer and more flawless. And the good thing about it is not only the visual effect, but also the aspect that you supply your skin with moisture at the same time during the day, which is very important especially in winter. But this trick is not only suitable for dry skin. Even if you have the problem that your face quickly begins to shine, 1-2 drops of oil in the foundation can work wonders. Just give it a try, you'll be amazed ;-) Have fun trying it out, your TocoTeam.
