Why Face Oils for your Skin – Essential fatty acids are crucial to replenishing and maintaining the hydration and nourishment levels of the skin, and since the body can’t make them itself, it’s important to get them from outside sources such as organic natural seed oils. Oils protect the skin’s acid mantle, rebuild and maintain skin’s lipid barrier due to external influences, like extreme temperatures, over-cleansing, low humidity, sickness and¬† travel. They act as a carrier for other active ingredients to penetrate into lower levels of the epidermis. Since oil creates a lipid barrier over the skin, it can speed up the skin’s own healing process and repair.
Apply oils after the skin has been freshly washed or splashed with water, oil will hold that extra water on the skin and help the skin to rebalance itself faster.”
