How to Apply a Facial Oil

11th August 2017

 

The family of ELEMIS oils has grown this year with the arrival of the much-anticipated Pro-Definition Facial Oil and Pro-Collagen Marine Oil. Joining the hugely popular Superfood Facial Oil, this collection of beautifully lightweight oils (with heavyweight skin benefits) has all your needs covered. Whether you require anti-aging seaweeds, regenerating plant stem cells, or radiance-boosting superfoods, there is an ELEMIS oil for you. And why stick to one? You can always mix things up and use a different one morning and evening according to your needs.

But how do you apply a facial oil for best results? Using an oil is the perfect excuse for carving out a moment of self-care during your day. Practising our facial massage routine will not only soften the muscles in the face but also help the actives in the formulations penetrate the skin. You’ll feel calmer, happier and have the kind of post-facial glow we all covet.

 

Let’s get started…

 

STEP 1

Apply 3-4 drops of your chosen oil into the palms of the hands. Warm and inhale the beautiful aroma. Cup hands and place on face, avoiding eyelids.

STEP 2

Gently place hands on to the chin and sweep alternate hands along the jawline to the ears to stimulate the lymph system and help draw toxins away from the face.

STEP 3

Slide hands to nose and glide across cheeks to the temple helping to give skin a lift and sculpt those cheekbones.

STEP 4

Slide fingers under the eyes and the bridge of the nose and then to the forehead. Glide from the centre to the temples, smoothing out any expression lines as you go.

STEP 5

Glide hands down the side of the face and apply pressure from the base of the neck to the tip of the chin using upward, sweeping strokes. The thin skin around the neck area can become dry and is prone to premature aging so it’s important to always extend your moisturisation as part of your regime. Using sweeping movements for application helps lift the area to avoid a crepey, sagging appearance (you may want to apply our Pro-Collagen Neck & Décolleté Balm for extra hydration).
