When Should You Apply Facial Oil?

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.

Glow like a Goddess!

Here is the proper order for a morning skin care routine:

  • Cleanse
  • Toner
  • Eye Cream
  • Any spot treatments you use
  • Moisturizer
  • Facial Oil
  • Sun Screen

Oils can also be used at night. In the evening, your facial oil would go on last.

Korean Beauty Routine for Glass Skin

Korean beauty is not really a look, it’s more of a skin care lifestyle. The results are gorgeous flawless skin with a dewy glow. Any makeup that is worn looks natural and luminous.

I’ve read that Korean women remove their makeup the way we take our shoes off when they return home from work or out from running errands and they wear makeup for as little time as possible during the day. That’s partly how they keep their skin so beautiful but following a strict skin care routine is probably their most powerful secret.

A popular term used for their look is “Glass Skin” because the immaculate unblemished effect reminds one of porcelain. Many people don’t know that Avon is now owned by, LG, and that they’re quickly becoming synonymous with Korean beauty products. Read on to learn how you can follow a Korean beauty routine using Avon products to produce the look of having Glass skin.

The following Korean beauty routine is brought to you from the Avon Insider blog at my Avon store. The links all lead to products there. If you click on them you’ll be able to learn more about each one and buy all of the products you’ll need.

Start with a gentle cleanser like belif Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser. Formulated with amino acids and glycerin-based cleansing agents, this lightweight formula gently removes makeup and impurities and hydrates while it cleanses. Plus, it’s by one of our favorite Korean skin care brands, belif.

BRIGHTENING SERUM                                                       
After cleansing, lather on Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum, an antioxidant serum that contains as much vitamin C as 30 oranges. This super serum illuminates dull, tired skin to look brighter and visibly energized while reviving it with a fresh citrus scent.

Layer a light-as-air moisturizer, such as belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb, over serum to lock in hydration. This cushiony moisturizing cream will smooth and nourish skin to keep it hydrated for 26 hours.

Prep your glass skin makeup look with VDL Lumilayer Primer, made with a Lumilayer Prismatic Pearl pigment that visibly brightens, plumps and sculpts skin while blurring pores. It helps enhance the wear of foundation while providing a long-lasting silky texture—making it the perfect start to a luminous look.

To achieve a flawless glass skin look, you, begin with a perfected, natural-looking complexion. Ink Lasting Cushion Foundation Slim Fit features a luxurious cushion design for buildable, even coverage—simply press the poof into the sponge compact to soak up the pigment, then apply to your face for an airy, longwearing finish. Formulated with niacinamide to visibly brighten your skin tone.

Dab a brightening concealer like Cashmere Complexion Longwear Concealer on your under-eye area and over any other blemishes or discolored spots. Formulated with antioxidant barley extract and vitamin E, this richly pigmented concealer nourishes skin while staying on for 24 hours of comfortable, breathable wear.

Create the ultimate glow with a pearlescent formula like VDL Lumilayer Metal Cushion Primer, which doubles as a gorgeous highlighter. Apply it to each feature you want to illuminate, and you’ll get a youthful, lit-from-within radiance that makes for the perfect glass skin effect.

Complete your glass skin makeup look with a subtle flush. Moisture Cushion Blush glides on for a dewy, watercolor-like flush that will enhance your complexion to bring out its natural radiance.
