QuickTips: Oils

I know I am an oil fanatic, but I realize not all of you have used oils on a regular basis.  Here are just a few things to keep in mind:

  • try to use oils with the least number of ingredients...the purer the better, especially with sensitive skin
  • try them on your body first...the face can get a little tricky
  • oils absorb better when applied to damp skin...fresh out of the bath or shower is great
  • experiment with amounts...less is usually plenty, and you can always add more
  • make sure you know what you are using...some oil-based products are area-specific, like for the hair, and some are multi-purpose and great for everyone and everything
  • try it on a weekend or other down time when you don't have big plans...sometimes you need a little practice before stepping out wearing oils
  • if you look or feel like a greaseball, just pat yourself off with a towel and use less the next time
  • oils can be fabulous, but not everyone is a fan, and that's alright

I like grapeseed oil for normal skin, avacado oil for dry skin, argan oil for everything and olive oil for cooking!  Here's to you, viscous one!
