Why natural face oils are better than cream moisturisers

Unveiling the Superiority of Face Oils: Why Cream Moisturisers Fall Short

When it comes to skincare, the choices seem endless. From cleansers to toners, serums to moisturisers, the options can be somewhat overwhelming to say the least. One particular question that we get asked regularly is "why use a natural face oil over a creamy moisturiser?"  Well whilst both have their merits, using a natural face oil might just be the secret to unlocking radiant, healthy skin.


1. Deep Nourishment and Hydration:

Face oils have the ability to deeply penetrate the skin, delivering essential nutrients and hydration to the deeper layers. Unlike cream moisturisers that often contain heavy emollients and fillers, face oils are lightweight and easily absorbed. Their molecular structure allows them to effectively nourish the skin from within, promoting a radiant complexion. By reaching the deeper layers of the skin, face oils provide long-lasting moisture and hydration, leading to a healthier and plumper appearance. 


2. Natural and Pure Formulations:

Cream moisturisers often contain nasty synthetic emulsifiers, fragrances, and preservatives, which may not be suitable for all skin types, particularly those with sensitivities or allergies. In contrast, face oils are typically composed of natural and pure ingredients, making them a gentler and safer choice for a wide range of individuals. By opting for face oils, you can minimise the risk of irritation or adverse reactions, allowing your skin to thrive naturally. Wild Rising Skincare oils are 100% natural and you'll find one to suit every skin type;

3. Balancing the Skin's Natural Oils:

Contrary to popular belief, applying oil to your face does not make it oilier. In fact, using natural face oil can actually help balance the skin's natural oil production. Super Seed oil, for example is a match made in heaven for oily skin as it closely resembles the sebum the skin naturally produces, a real skincare marvel this one.

When the skin is stripped of its natural oils due to harsh cleansers or environmental factors, it often compensates by producing more oil, leading to breakouts and congestion. By using a natural face oil, you provide the skin with the nourishment it needs, signaling to the sebaceous glands that they don't need to produce excessive oil. This helps maintain a healthy oil balance and reduces the likelihood of acne flare-ups.


4. Versatility and Customisation:

Another advantage of natural face oils is their versatility and the ability to customise them to suit your skin's unique needs. Whether you have dry, sensitive, or aging skin, there's a natural oil out there to address your concerns. From hemp seed oil for acne-prone skin to rosehip seed oil for anti-aging benefits, the options are vast. Moreover, you can even blend different oils together to create a customised formulation that caters to your skin's specific requirements.

Natural Face Oil Conclusion:

While creamy moisturisers have long been a staple in skincare routines, using a natural face oil can offer a myriad of benefits. From deep nourishment and hydration to lightweight absorption and customisation options, face oils are a game-changer for achieving radiant and healthy skin. By embracing the power of nature, you can unlock the secret to a natural, luminous complexion that reflects your inner beauty ( IDC if that sounds cheesy, it's true) So, next time you reach for your skincare products, consider giving your natural face oil a chance to revolutionise your skincare routine.
