Facial Oils 101 - Esthetician Tips

February 28, 2022 | BY Stephanie Allen Klasse

Facial oils are incredibly beneficial, yet very misunderstood. In fact, oils in skincare could be considered essential for most people to deliver extra nourishment and hydration.

Avoid Dehydrated Skin

One of the main jobs our skin has is to protect us and keep water, and our skin’s natural moisture factor (NMF) in, and keep the β€˜bad stuff’, like bacteria and environmental stressors, out. When our skin loses that water, it becomes dehydrated. This leads to skin looking more red, irritated, and our lines and wrinkles are more visible. The major way our skin does this important job of preventing water loss is through our lipid barrier, that is a mix of fatty acids, ceramides, and cholesterol. Using skin care oils helps lock in the water and NMF in our skin and support our lipid barrier.

Rosehip Oil

Pure Pressed Facial Oils

Facial oils that are from pure pressed nut and seed oils are different from essential oils, and oil blends. Not all oils have the same amount of nutrients, skin benefits, and some may be more pore clogging and only suitable for certain skin types. In fact, some oils may be heavy, greasy and not well suited for the needs of the face at all. The goPure Argan Oil and Rosehip Oil are pure pressed, premium oils that are packed with Vitamins, Minerals, Fatty Acids, Omegas, Antioxidants and more to give a moisturizing boost to your skin care routine.


Oils For Your Skin Type

Oils can be found as an ingredient in our products, like moisturizers, or as a stand alone product, like a facial oil. They can be an oil blend, or a 100% pure and just 1 ingredient. Our skin type and skin concerns will determine what is best for us. All skin types can find an oil best suited for them, but dry and mature skin types can especially benefit from adding in a facial oil. For these skin types, an oil like Argan oil is ideal.Β In fact, Argan oil is rich in Vitamin E and can be used head-to-toe and delivers deep nourishment to the face, body, hair, and hands/nails. It feels luxurious on the skin and absorbs thoroughly as a moisturizer. Rosehip is an oil that works on most skin types, even breakout prone and oily skin. It is not heavy, and even has a natural form of Vitamin A, all-trans retinoic acid, that has been touted as an alternative to retinol. It is a wonderful booster oil to add into or on top of your moisturizer.

Argan Oil

Add Oils to Your Routine

These oils can be used day or night! They are wonderful to add in when using active ingredients like glycolic acid and retinol, or whenever your skin needs a moisturizing boost.

Esthetician Tip: Adding in a facial oil can seem overwhelming, but they are a quick and easy addition that delivers meaningful results. The easiest way to add in an oil is at the very end of your nighttime routine, after your moisturizer. Simply press on a few drops around the face and neck. You can even give an extra boost to your eye and lip care by pressing in a small amount on this area. My main rule is that oils will lock in what is underneath them since water-based ingredients can have a hard time getting through them, so that is perfect as a last step.

Almost out of my Afghan Oil. I use it twice a day after serums and before moisturizing cream. It smooths out lines, and gives that extra touch needed to smooth out lines and wrinkles at my age of 62. I even apply it to my eye brows and if ends any frizziness in my hair. Rose hips is good for diminishing age spots and veriscosities. TY

Hi Kim,

We appreciate your interest in our Argan Oil and Rosehip Oil. Both oils offer great skin benefits. Argan oil is rich in vitamin E which makes this perfect for helping with the appearance of lightening scars and any discoloration. This oil can be used by anyone regardless of skin type.

Argan oil is used as a moisturizer not only for the skin but also for hair and nails. You can add the Argan Oil to your night routine after applying the serum but before the moisturizer. The Argan Oil is more of an oily oil so we would not want you using that during the day.

Rosehip oil is a drier oil so you can use this during the day. It can help reduce the appearance of scars, flaky skin, and redness. It has antioxidants and can be used as an eye makeup remover.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any further questions or concerns.

I love love the Argan Oil. My face was dry and dehydrated from winter and from recovering from a bladder infection. The Argan Oil replenished my skin after one application!!!

Hi Linda,

Thank you for reaching out to us! If you are mixing the oil directly in your lotion bottle, you may add 10 to 15 drops. Or, you may add a drop on your hand and mix it with your lotion before you apply it on your skin.
