Ancient beauty secret is back!
Facial oils have been very popular as of late. But as matter of fact, facial oils are not a trend and not even a new discovery. The use of oils has existed for centuries. They have been used by Cleopatra 2000 years ago and even have been used as a form of payment in ancient Egypt...
And these days facial oils are having a major come back. Perhaps because they are in themselves an ancient secret, delivering beauty to your skin. Or maybe because they are the purest form of skin treatment. Each oil offers its own magic properties that address various skin issues.
As moisturizers, oils rapidly penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, protecting against the breakdown of proteins in the cell wall with fatty and linoleic acids, mimicking what our bodies produce naturally. The oils also function as humectants, which help our skin retain moisture. The oils don't make your skin oilier, but quite the opposite. Once your skin is sufficiently lubricated, it reduces the need to produce more oil for this purpose. Hence making your skin less only. Oils don't block the pores either. If used as a cleanser, oils dissolve the denser sebum that collects in our pores (aka blackheads).
