Facial oils have a bad rep in the skincare department as most women assume that it will either make their skin look greasy or lead to breakouts. But that’s so not true. If used right, facial oils can brighten your skin, help get rid of acne and keep your skin moisturised — no matter what your skin type. What’s more? They also give your skin a healthy, lit-from-within glow.

Yes, you read that right. Wanna learn how to use this beauty elixir to get the glow of your dream? Scroll down…

 

Add it to moisturisers and serums

Instead of adding another step to your skincare routine, you can mix facial oil with your moisturiser or serum to enhance its effectiveness. After cleansing your skin thoroughly, add a few drops of facial oil to your daily moisturiser or serum and apply all over the face; pat and massage until absorbed.

 

Massage into the skin

You can dab or pat facial oils directly onto the skin to get the most benefits. Use the tip of your finger to push the oils into the pores or use a face massaging tool such as a jade roller. Apply a few drops of the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-In-Serum before applying makeup for a dewy look or at night (before going to bed) to wake up to smooth skin in the morning.

 

Mix it with foundation

Did anyone ever tell you that using a highlighter is not the only way to get dewy skin? Yes, that’s right. There is a natural way to achieve it. Simply mix a few drops of facial oil with your liquid foundation and apply all over the skin to get the most stunning glow. Alternatively, if you don’t want an overall glow, apply the oil only on the high points of your face for a lit-from-within glow.
