Essential oils, mainly used for aromatherapy and the treatment of respiratory health issues, are making their mark in the world of skin and facial care. Although it may seem counterintuitive to treat excess oil production with oil-based products, essential oils can effectively preserve moisture levels and oil balance in the skin. Each has certain properties that can remedy and relieve skin problems.
Consult with an aesthetician regarding the applications for these healing essential oils:
Essential oils are extremely concentrated extracts and should not be applied directly onto skin. Doing so may induce irritation and/or allergic reactions.
Most skin experts recommend combining 2%-3% essential oil(s) with 97%-98% “carrier oil” for safe, daily use. This equates to three to 4.5 drops of essential oil for every 5-milliliter bottle of carrier oil.
Common carrier oils include:
Be sure to thoroughly cleanse your face before oil application as oil applied to the dirty skin can exacerbate skin problems. Apply oil before your skin dries completely, allowing moisture to lock in. For accelerated benefits, talk to your skin care expert on how to incorporate DIY facial cupping massage into your routine.
