Myths related to facial oil busted

Los Angeles, Jan 2 : Facial oils lead to breakouts and makes the face look greasy: These are some of the common myths associated with the skin care product.


Huffingtonpost.com dispels some myths attached to facial oils:

1. Myth: Oils cause breakouts

People think that facial oils or any product with oil in it will make them break out.

Truth: Healthy fats and oils prevent skin damage and breakouts.

The skin needs its natural oils for protection. If we strip the oil away, the skin will produce more oil to compensate. Then the imbalances will cause breakouts. A healthy oil environment should be encouraged to repair damage.

2. Myth: Oil is oily

Many fear that oil application will make face shiny. The assumption is that only people with dry skin can use oil. Those with combination or oily skin will look greasy.

Truth: Facial oil is not oily

A good facial oil should be absorbed by skin and should give dewy look. It should not leave the surface looking oily. Look out for base oils like such as jojoba, apricot or almond.

3. Myth: Oils are not efficient anti-ageing products

When compared to other skin products with anti-oxidant extracts and other anti-ageing ingredients, oils are less beneficial in terms of protecting skin from ageing.

Truth: Facial oils are chemical free anti-oxidant powerhouses

Since oils are not water-based, they don't need synthetic preservatives. They are pure unadulterated botanical oils.
