Why use facial oil?
Locking in moisture to your skin is a great way to help keep it supple, soft and gorgeous but there are more ways to do this than you may have thought. Traditional cream moisturisers are the way we have been moisturising our skin for decades but have you ever looked at the ingredients on the moisturisers that you use?
It was analysing the ingredients of my bathroom cupboard that led me to throw out the majority of the products in there. I wanted to know that the ingredients I was rubbing into my skin were the best they could be which led to simplifying my beauty routine and using only facial oil to moisturise my skin. It was a leap of faith at first and I had lots of questions. Now our customers ask us the same questions so below is a list of frequently asked questions about using facial oil.
When do you use a facial oil?
The beauty of facial oils is that they can be used in many ways. I love to use The Flower Power Company Radiant Flower Facial Oil in the morning after a shower and before putting on makeup. It acts as not only a moisturiser, but also as a primer for my skin and allows my foundation to go on easily.
How do you use facial oil at night?
Another way to use facial oil is as a night time moisturising treat. Simply massage into clean skin, enjoy the delicate orange blossom aroma and wake up feeling soft and hydrated. Our facial oil is light and absorbs quickly so you don't have to worry about getting your pillow covered in oil. It acts just like a moisturiser would.
Can you use facial oil under makeup?
Yes. The Flower Power Company Radiant Flower Facial Oil is light and easily absorbed so a minute after application, you can go ahead and use your usual makeup and it will not slide off. As it has a silky smooth texture, it even helps make up application as it acts as a primer so a small bottle does a lot of jobs in one.
Can I still use my favourite moisturiser too?
Yes. You can use The Flower Power Company Radiant Flower Facial Oil as a boost to your usual moisturiser. Apply before your moisturiser and see how it gives you an extra super flower power boost.
How much facial oil do you use?
A small 30ml bottle of The Flower Power Company Radiant Flower Facial Oil goes a long way. Use the pipette and drop a 5p piece size of facial oil on your palm and see how far that goes. You can always apply a couple of extra drops on especially dry areas if you need.
How do you apply facial oil?
The easiest way is to drop the oil into your palm, massage gently into your palm then apply in circular movements on to your skin. It is runnier than a moisturiser but you can apply it in the same way. We believe less is more so the great thing is you can apply a thin layer and then top up any areas as you need.
Will facial oil make my skin greasy?
Oil naturally occurs in your skin. It is what helps to make your skin supple, soft and protected. Our Flower Power Company Radiant Flower Facial Oil is less thick than many moisturisers so it absorbs quickly and easily without leaving a greasy residue.
Can you use facial oil to do facial massage?
Absolutely. Massage is a fantastic way to reduce tension and help stimulate blood to your skin to bring much needed Oxygen to the skin’s surface. By using a facial oil to perform the massage, it will help your fingers glide easily and gives an extra moisture boost at the same time.
Where do you apply facial oil?
We recommend you apply facial oil where you would usually apply a moisturiser. Sometimes a little extra is helpful for areas such as the forehead that can become dry.
