As the weather heats up, the last thing you probably think to reach for is facial oil. Humidity is more than enough to make you look overly greasy during the summer months, right? But hear us out — facial oil can do wonders for your complexion, even in the summertime. Read more to learn how to use facial oil as part of your summer skincare routine and tips for applying it.
The Benefits Of Using a Facial Oil
If you’ve never used facial oil before, you’re probably wondering why you should start now? For starters, facial oil can help to hydrate your complexion — which is especially important in terms of how your skin looks, regardless of what time of year it is. Hydrated skin equates to beautiful skin and even oily skin needs hydration. Plus, incorporating facial oil can be relaxing and even add a spa-like experience to your routine.
Does Face Oil Protect Your Skin From the Sun?
No, facial oil does not protect from the sun and it should never replace SPF. When using facial oil, your AM routine should go — cleanser, facial oil, moisturizer, SPF and then makeup if you’re wearing any. SPF is so important year round, but especially in the summer when skin is getting more UV exposure.
Along with wearing SPF, it's important to take other sun protection measures like limiting your time in the sun (especially during peak hours from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), covering up exposed areas and reapplying sunscreen at least every two hours.
