Dewy Skin, Served: 4 Facial Oils You Need Before it Gets Cold
Dewy skin is often associated with summer, and we agree, it’s the perfect way to complement any warm weather outfit. Still, you don’t have to part ways with dewiness when the weather cools down. With the right products in tow, you can keep your glow going all winter long. Before the air gets as cold as can be, go ahead and add a facial oil—or four—into your skin care routine. Need a recomendation? We’ve got you covered. Below, the four facials oils—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—you need to start using ASAP.
Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate
Newsflash: There’s nothing scary about facial oil. We can sympathize if you’re concerned about becoming an oil slick, but there’s no need to worry. Much to our joy, even the oiliest skin types can get in on the action without resembling a total grease ball. Really, it’s a moisturizing trend that doesn’t discriminate based on skin type. All it takes for oilier skin types to join in is opting for a lightweight oil that’s meant for everyday use. That’s easy enough, right? But just in case, for facial oil beginners, let us kindly point you in the direction of the Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate. Formulated with a blend of ginger root, sunflower and tamanu oils, it helps to correct the visible appearance of skin fatigue, perfect for days when the morning comes way too soon.
Vichy Neovadiol Magistral Elixir
Glowing skin that remains shine-free may sound like a total oxymoron, but that’s exactly what the Vichy Neovadiol Magistral Elixir can offer. If you want radiant-looking skin sans shine, this one’s for you. The facial oil concentrate helps skin look transformed, combatting the effects of hormonal aging, by giving skin a replumped appearance, revived glow, and intense comfort. And of course, we can’t forget to mention that the oil is a pleasure to use. Whether you want to layer makeup on top or not, the dry, satin-finish leaves you ready for your next move—whatever that may be.
CeraVe Skin Renewing Gel Oil
As beauty editors, we’re always looking for something interesting and different in skin care and it isn’t always a cinch to find. That’s why the CeraVe Skin Renewing Gel Oil has us so excited. Most facial oils may be somewhat similar, but not this one! The gel oil formula is something all its own, with a unique 5-ceramide and sunflower blend that provides intense hydration while helping to instantly improve skin’s radiance.
Editor’s tip: Chances are you’ll need even more skin moisture once the weather cools off. Using a facial oil is a step in the right direction, but it doesn’t mean you have to forget about your beloved moisturizer. Allow the non-irritating gel oil to absorb, sinking into skin, then follow with your favorite face cream or lotion.
Biotherm Liquid Glow Skin Best
In addition to illuminating, nourishing, and protecting skin, the Biotherm Liquid Glow Skin Best has a variety of uses you’ll want to put to the test. First, try pressing the complexion-reviving oil into skin to add touches of glow to specific spots. Or try massaging your face with the oil for a detoxing (and not to mention, relaxing) effect. Still, that’s not all. Mix a few drops of the oil into your skin care products to add antioxidant power. Okay, just one more! The oil, formulated with algae extract, can also double as a face mask. Apply a thick layer and let it sit for 10 minutes, then simply wipe-off the excess. Skin pampering doesn’t get any easier than that.
