Hello dear readers. Today I want to tell you what kind of oils are good for the face, because, most recently, instead of the cream I try to use oils. Basically, I use butter instead of a night cream for the face. It is very convenient, I bought oils for myself for masks, I make masks for hair and face, and then I thought, why not use butter instead of cream.
On the blog, I already wrote about hair oils, which oil to choose, how to apply oils in hair masks. If you are interested in information on how to choose hair oil, then everything can be found in the article "How to choose hair oil".Today I want to talk about the most common oils for the face.
There are essential oils and base oils. Many base oils are suitable for any type of skin, and even solve many skin problems. My skin is dry, but now, when I began to use oils, my skin became softer and more hydrated. Base oils should be used separately and not mixed with each other, but the basic and ethereal can be mixed.
It should be remembered that essential oils are a fairly concentrated product and it should be added to the base oil literally a little bit. Since essential oils in pure form can cause skin burns. You can add essential oils to the cosmetic products that you use.
What kind of oils are good for the face?
Let's start with the base oils. It is considered one of the useful and accessible oils for the face, olive oil. I constantly buy it, for culinary and cosmetic purposes. Olive oil is an oil that fits perfectly for any type of facial skin, but most of all it is certainly suitable for dry skin care.
There are a lot of oils for skin care, the main thing is to choose for yourself according to the type of skin and your preferences. Well, according to the price. Prices for oils are also different.

I discovered this oil for myself very recently, I liked it very much, its odor is nutty, the texture is pleasant, I use shea butter instead of a night cream for face and eyelids.

Softens the skin, moisturizes, heals, the skin after applying cocoa butter is smooth and gentle.
Grape seed oil. Oil contains a large number of vitamins, especially a lot of vitamin E and vitamin C. It has wound healing, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects. Grape seed oil helps reduce fine wrinkles, relieve inflammation from the skin, nourishes and softens.
When choosing oils, the most important is that you do not have any allergies to oil, I certainly also buy oil at your own risk, as they say. I check, test, prepare masks with oils, so many oils have become my favorites, which I buy myself constantly. Of course, there is no limit to female curiosity, so I really want to buy some more oils, but not all at once, I will gradually test and try other oils for the face.
Which oils are better for the face, it is difficult to answer unequivocally, since each oil fulfills its functions for the face, but basically all oils are suitable for dry skin of the face, some for sensitive, inflamed and irritated. The choice of oils is great, which is simply lost. But, all gradually you can try and choose those that are more suitable.
