The weather is changing and it’s time to give our skin a little more love. Fall/winter is the time of the year that our skin starts to suffer from dehydrating. Not only does dry/ dehydrated skin feel super uncomfortable, It’s a big reason for a lot of skin issues.
Skin sensitivity, breakouts, hyperpigmentation, dullness and fine lines is more noticeable when your skin is dehydrated.
It’s very important to moisturize your skin but it's even more important to know how to retain moisture. Doing this can help solve a lot of these skin concerns. That’s why I really want to introduce you to facial oils!
Facial oils are such a great addition to your skin care routine. No matter your skin type! They are great for locking in moisture in the skin. There are many great facial oils in the market but two facial oils that I have been loving lately are vitamin e skin oil and sweet almond oil.
A few weeks ago I started experiencing dry skin around my mouth area. This might have been caused by the frequent mask wearing or the changing weather. I was definitely freaking out because I normally don’t experience dry skin. Especially around my mouth area. My skin is normal to oily. After trying a few products, I found that vitamin e oil really solved my dry skin issues!
I mix it with some of my sweet almond oil. Vitamin e oil alone is very thick in consistency. That's why the sweet almond oil was a great addition for a smoother application. If you are allergic to sweet almond oil jojoba oil is a great substitute. Vitamin e oil can also be used as just a night treatment but I found I had the best result when I used it morning and at night. I plan on continuing to use it along with my sweet almond oil all throughout winter to keep my skin glowy and hydrated!
