There are so many good reasons for making facial oil a daily habit but when exactly should you use it? Before your serum? After your moisturizer? In the morning? At night?
Turns out that even us Avon ladies have a thing or two to learn about skincare.
Not being someone who used any face oil in the past, I needed to do a bit of research when I received a bottle of Green Goddess in an Avon bundle. Don’t get me wrong, I had sampled the stuff in the past but I didn’t end up adding it to my daily routine. I had the old fashioned notion that with continued use, it would make me breakout. Which I’ve since learned simply isn’t true.
I know I’ve talked about my Avon representative Facebook groups before and I’m telling you, I love the way the Avon community always comes together to help each other. Recently one of the other reps posted a couple of photos she’d taken of herself before and after adding the Green Goddess facial oil to her daily skincare routine and it was easy to see that it made a HUGE difference in the look of her skin’s complexion and her fine lines and wrinkles. Without any makeup, she was absolutely glowing. I immediately went and grabbed my own bottle and spread it all over my face.
THEN, I went and looked up how it should actually be used in my own daily routine and it turns out that facial oil should be applied after your moisturizer.
The reason to use it last is simple and now that I know better, it makes plenty of sense. Oils can penetrate all of your other skin care creams and lotions but nothing can penetrate the oil. The oil is used to lock in all of the other hydrating creams you’ve used to help them all work better!
The only thing you should apply after using your oil is a sunscreen, if your moisturizer doesn’t already contain some.
You’ll need to wait a bit before applying makeup but believe me it’s well worth the extra time to let the oil do its thing.
Here is the proper order for a morning skin care routine:
- Eye Cream
- Any spot treatments you use
- Facial Oil
- Sun Screen
Oils can also be used at night. In the evening, your facial oil would go on last.
