Puffy eyes, dry and even dull skin - if that’s what you wake up to in the morning, then it’s high time you change your skincare routine, buddy! We can’t stress enough on the fact that keeping your skin moisturised and hydrated at all times is the key to healthy skin, especially at night. That’s why we suggest adding face oils to your night-time skincare routine.
Right after cleansing and toning your face, pat and moisturise with a good face oil. Besides moisturising your skin, the oil also helps reduce fine lines, shrink enlarged pores, fight off acne and most importantly, makes sure your face is plump and bright when you wake up in the morning!
Now, we have picked out five face oils that you can add to your night-time skincare regimen for healthy skin in the morning. Check them out!
01. Jojoba oil
Over the last few years, jojoba oil has emerged as a great skincare ingredient and rightly so. This amazing oil is lightweight and acts as a perfect moisturiser for both dry and oily skin. Jojoba oil is very similar to the sebum on your skin, which means that it does not clog your pores or lead to acne breakouts. Also, the antioxidants in this oil promote the production of collagen in your skin which reduces premature ageing and fine lines.
02. Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is an essential oil that works well on your skin and also helps fight many skin issues like acne, psoriasis and eczema, to name a few. With its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, tea tree oil works to soothe dry, irritated skin while also moisturising oily skin, without making it too oily. It actually works as an acne treatment too, so you don’t need to worry about that either. Just mix a few drops of tea tree oil in a carrier oil (like coconut or olive oil) and apply it to your face before heading to bed.
03. Kumkumadi oil
Kumkumadi oil or Kumkumadi tailam is an ayurvedic oil that comes with a long list of benefits. This oil is made with ingredients like red and gold saffron which are famous for making your skin glowy and bright. In ayurveda, this oil is known to reduce blemishes, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles and improve your overall skin tone
04. Argan oil
This Moroccan carrier oil is one of the best face oils to apply to your skin before hitting the bed. Due to the abundance of vitamin E in it, argan oil makes for an amazing moisturiser and even fights signs of premature ageing. It is loaded with antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties that help keep skin conditions like acne, psoriasis and rosacea at bay. You can directly apply this oil to your face every night and see it work its magic with regular use.
05. Olive oil
We know olive oil is great for your hair, but did you know you can actually use it to hydrate and moisturise your skin too? Well, now you know! The high content of squalene, omega 6 and omega 9 in this oil moisturises your skin, makes it plump and prevents dry skin. The antioxidants in olive oil help fight ageing signs and also relieve sun damage. Just pat a few drops on your face after toning it at the end of the day and wake up to happy, healthy skin.
