The Next Big Thing in Your Skin Care Regimen: Coconut Oil
Oil-free, oil-reducing, oil-control, oil-absorbing—Most of us have been taught that oil is bad for skin. The idea of smothering your face in oil sends most women into an all-out panic.
Facial oils are actually good for your skin. No matter your skin type, facial oils can offer a variety of skin benefits.
Why Do Oils Work?
You may think oils will lead to breakouts and leave a greasy, heavy film on your skin. Wrong. Essential oils for your skin are actually:
- Absorb quickly
- Leaving no shiny, greasy residue
Facial oils penetrate deeply into skin to provide long-lasting hydration.
What is Coconut Oil Good For?
Coconut oil is the perfect way to give your skin a surge of long-lasting moisture. The natural oil is rich in fatty acids that quickly deliver antioxidants into the skin. Because natural oils are lipophilic (fat-loving) and have smaller molecules, they penetrate rapidly. Coconut oil is also non-comedogenic, meaning it will not clog your pores.
Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil [w1] is formulated with 9 lightweight, naturally-derived oils, including coconut oil. The facial oil is designed to work with your skin to protect against moisture loss and preserve balance. Plus the naturally derived formula is lightweight, non-greasy, dye and perfume-free. One drop and your skin will feel instantly hydrated.
Oils Beyond Your Face
The benefits of oils go beyond just your face. Dab a little on chapped lips for quick relief or slather on dry patches around elbows, hands, and cuticles.
