Every Sunday I shall share here a beauty tip that I’ve read or heard about, and leave my comments or thoughts on it. Please feel free to leave your views, too! :)
I am a HUGE fan of oils- both facial and body, have been since the thereabouts of the year 2007 and a post about that will come out by itself soon :P All skin types are sure to benefit from using oils, yes, including oily, but it depends on what oils you’re using, for example, oils like tea tree and lavender kill acne-causing bacteria. Also, you don’t need to use a lot of oil, just a few drops is more than enough to cover the entire face so it’s kind of cost effective in a way. Oils also help to regulate the sebum/oil production of the skin, keeps skin from dehydrating and restores the skin’s natural lipid barrier. I’m a convert to using oils for sure :D
I personally don’t use conventional moisturiser anymore- instead I have been using facial oils, namely Melvita Calendula Oil (For my sensitive skin) and Melvita Sweet Almond Oil (For dry skin) as the final steps in my skin care. I started using facial oils through Eve Taylor, and their Facial Oil No. 3 was actually instrumental in helping my skin recover from a rather bad breakout on my right chin back in 2008. I personally find single oils like the ones by Melvita easier to manipulate than oil blends (It’s easier to know what works and what will not), as your skin might not take well to certain oils or they might not mix well with one another. It’s all trial and error I guess, or you can turn to the internet for more guides on using oils. Pretty Beautiful and Viva Woman love their oils!
I’m finishing up my research proposal for my Masters degree application and hopefully I can have it mailed out by this week. Once it’s mailed out I can hopefully focus more on blogging! So many things to review :P Wish me luck!
