Incorporating facial oils into your daily skincare routine is becoming more of a trend. I am very excited about this development as more people become aware of the benefits of using natural vegetable oils. However, this results in a significant amount of mistraining, errors, and incorrect product selection. In addition, there are a lot of greenwashing and items with bad recipes.

Before we dive into the specifics of how to use facial oil and reap the benefits of it, I want to emphasize how important it is to choose a product that suits your skin’s requirements. Some foods may be too heavy, which can lead to breakouts; others may have a strong odor that irritates sensitive skin; and so on and so forth. Please take this opportunity to try the product or get a sample before purchasing the full size product, if available. Because everyone’s skin is different, products that work for one person may not work for you.

In addition to that, I strongly encourage you to read food labels, educate yourself, and ask questions. You might get the impression that you are buying an oil serum made up of rare rose hip and jojoba oil. Despite this, you run the risk of purchasing an inexpensive product based on mineral oil and with a small amount of natural ingredients.

Let’s finally dive in!

Facial oil application is usually reserved until the very end of your skin care routine (SPF in the morning). They provide many benefits that vary depending on the type of oil used. This provides increased levels of vitamins and minerals as well as important fatty acids for the skin. In addition to this, they act as an occlusal barrier that helps retain the body’s natural moisture.


  1. After using a hydrating toner, essence, or facial serum, apply a few drops of this moisturizer to your face to lock in hydration and hydrate your skin.
  2. Add a few drops to your moisturizer or serum for an extra boost.
  3. To further hydrate your face, add a few drops of this serum to your face mask.
  4. Works great as a facial massage tool, including gua sha and jade roller.
  5. For a more natural and radiant look, add a few drops of oil to your foundation.

Bonus tip: You can also use your preferred carrier oil, such as jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil, or safflower oil, as an effective and gentle make-up remover or pre-wash.
