Face Oil 411 and Why You Should Add it To Your Skin Care Routine.

Face Oil 411 and Why You Should Add it To Your Skin Care Routine.

Would you believe me if I said slathering your face in oil would actually help your skin, or would you think I’m crazy? I’m not asking you to break out the Crisco and rub it on your face. That would be absolute lunacy. What I am sharing is that the powerful protective and healing properties found in facial oils are vast. The benefits of adding a good face oil to your skin care routine,  when chosen wisely,  will most defenitly yield phenomenal results.

Many ancient cultures kept their skin radiant by using oil. This (very) old-school beauty secret is making a huge comeback right now and for all the right reasons. In fact, according to top dermatologists, facial oils may be that missing step in your beauty routine. The truth is not all face oils are created the same so make sure to choose clean ingredients that are right for your skin type.

Life on Mars Beauty has three great organic treatment oils for your skin, whatever the type. All three of them are jam packed with organic botanicals, organic essential oils that contain powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin and are vegan and cruelty-free. Heres what they are and why you won’t feel like a terrible EXXON oil spill after using them…

Organic Vega Face Oil 
If you have rosacea, acne, or are an oily skin – Vega is your best bet. The major ingredients found in this oil are tea tree and thyme which are broad spectrum antiseptics and skin healing antibacterials that help fight off acne. Another powerful ingredient in this oil is grapefruit which helps balance hormonal breakouts. We have seen incredible results with the stubborn rosacea when using this oil. The juniper helps repair the capillaries and keep them strong. Rosemary is another key ingredient that helps calm the inflammation that is problematic with rosacea.

Organic Luna Face Oil
Do you have dry, mature, sun tortured skin? If the answer is yes, then Luna is the perfect choice for you. It has calming chamomile for antioxidant protection and anti inflammatory benefits. Dreamy lavender soothes and softens while wound-healing and protective. 
Included in this treasure trove of ingredients is clary sage which helps reduce inflammation and possesses antimicrobial properties. The aromatic scent of the organic essential oils in Luna have been sought out to reduce anxiety and stress. This also makes Luna a wonderful part of your nighttime routine.

Organic Nova Energizing Oil 
For normal and combination skins; Nova is a stand-out performer. This blend of aromatic essences of grapefruit, bitter orange, vanilla & geranium provide an uplifting boost for your day. The grapefruit repairs collagen while the vanilla’s antioxidant properties fight free radicals. Vitamin C is the superhero in Nova Oil, which brightens complexion and rebuilds collagen. The light, clean scent of Nova wakes the senses and your skin. It is by far a fan favorite!

Your Skin and Oil 101
Your skin is the largest most perfectly protective organ on your body. It naturally has a very acidic ph to fight off and kill bacteria. It holds water in and let’s toxins out. It protects you from the sun. Using oils will fill pores and protect them from getting clogged, loosen up already clogged pores, and protect your skin from pollution, bacteria, and fungus. So no, your skin won’t get clogged or confused by the oil ….oil is as natural to the skin as water!

How to use Oil: These incredible elixirs can be used in several different ways. You can use them instead of a moisturizer for all day hydration, You can use them as a serum underneath your favorite moisturizer, or you can cocktail them in to your moisturizer if needed. Whatever the scenario,when used underneath your foundation we can guarantee a creamy dreamy and gleamy glow on your skin.

The right way to apply it: The best way to apply is by first warming a few drops of oil between your hands before gently pressing it onto your face until it absorbs. Try holding your hands for a few seconds on your face, as the heat helps the oil to ‘melt’ and absorb more deeply into the skin. It feels and smells great!
