Elemis rose facial oil
If you guys have been following along our skincare series, We’ve been covering cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and moisturizing, Because a lot of you may be thinking, “Ro, Fel, Mia, I already have super oily skin, The last thing I wanna do is to put more oils on. But if you have dry skin,
you might like, yeah, give me any oil I want. But oils are not all the same. We have here, there’s jojoba, there’s almond, there’s obviously cooking kind of oils, Olive oils, cleansing oils are stuff your face to hydrate/moisturize as a final step.
So the whole spectrum, there’s oils everywhere. So we’re gonna tell you exactly how to use all of them, The correct ones to use for your skin type, And the different oils to actually look out for, Because there are more oily oils and less oily oils.
Tell me more. Before we get into it, Make sure you like and subscribe. Over there. Yeah, yeah. Facial oils are single or a combination of extracted plants and fruit
from seeds and other parts of the plant. Like the marula oil is 100 percent from the marula fruit, and jojoba oils are from jojoba seed, And you have flowers, you have fruits. Oils are an emollient, meaning they can soften the surface layers of your skin, but because they don’t penetrate as deeply as moisturizers,
They aren’t as moisturizing as some of us may believe/think, We’ll get into that in a bit. Because oils are the purest forms of the plant or the seed or the flower, They have been used for centuries back to ancient Egypt,
Where they used castor oil, olive oil, and sesame oils. And because oils were all the rage then, It was actually so valuable that they would trade it, Kind of like how in Asia they would trade tea. In general, these facial oils all contain fatty acids. And the fatty acids are split into two, One is called ‘linoleic’ and one is ‘oleic’. So you can think of linoleic as the oily people You want to stay towards linoleic whereas oleic is like Rowena, the dry type. Oil, oil,
I need oil so oleic. Ah yeah. So just looking at all of these, each of these oils have a combination of both oleic and linoleic, But generally speaking the linoleic is very thin in consistency. You can see this jojoba, we’ll talk a little about this later. It’s very runny and watery,
versus olive oil.

It’s thicker and much richer. An interesting fact, those of you who are acne prone or very oily, They’re known to have low levels of linoleic acid in their sebum.
Which is why restoring it actually helps to balance it out, And it’s also believed to be one of the reasons why we get acne. The linoleic acids we see most often in skincare products are: Rosehip oil, Hemp seed oil, Safflower, Grapeseed, Evening primrose, and Jojoba Popular oleic acids include:
Olive oil, Macadamia, Avocado, Apricot, Almond, and Hazelnut You know the whole DIY coconut oil also olive oil, You just wanna put it everywhere, Because it’s so heavy and it’s such a oleic fatty acid. This should definitely be steered clear of people with combo, oily skin, Because it’s like better for Rowena and her clan. So generally speaking, our skin follows a daily cycle of sebum production. Its peak usually during midday when you’re just walking past the mirror Like oh my god,
I need to blot blot blot, It is always the most like startling thing to see your reflection, and you think you’re like all cute and everything, and you’re like whah, so from midday to evening your sebum secretion begins to lower, and then by the time this evening when you’re about to get ready for sleep, your sebum secretion is at its complete lowest,
so that’s why we always say like add oils after moisturizing in your evening skincare routine, before you go to bed because during when you’re sleeping, your skin gets really dehydrated, and no one’s there to really like unless you have a little fairy dripping oils over you, no one’s there to restore that hydration, so your skin is most dehydrated, so it needs most of the nourishment there as well, but this is of course not black and white,
because people with dry skin like you can probably use it during the day, but for oily where they’re producing enough oil, so that’s why it’s like more of a nighttime thing for me anyway, for me during wintertime when it’s really cold and really try, then yes I can use oils during the day, but during the summertime because I do have combo,
yeah now what are the different type of facial oils, there’s three, essential carriers and treatments, so let’s start with essential oils, essential oils are distilled leaves bark roots and other aromatic parts of a plant, they’re highly concentrated and require carrier oils to dilute its potency to avoid irritation, when used properly, essential oils are great for repairing.
dry skin Elemis Rose Facial Oil
it’s generally not comedogenic and it’s very fast absorbing, so this one’s from Indie Lee, I
sn’t smell like much, and then quickly absorbs into your skin, like it was never there, but then this one is a plant derived squalane face oil, and it says its organic ingredients for fine lines and dryness, basically all of these oils are also for that, it’s funny because like all the descriptions for facial oils are the same, they’re like hydrate seeps quickly absorb quickly nourishes, and then we have the marula, and it comes from the marula fruit which is like a mango family, this is actually higher within the oleic carboxylic acid , so it’s a touch bit thicker, and something like jojoba oil,
but for someone who has oily skin, i exploit this also and it doesn’t really have any like clogging effect, so once more it’s more such as you have to try it, as annoying as it sounds, you really have to try these oils, like the foundation of skin care, you need to try things out for yourself, you can listen to as much videos if you want, but by the end of the day if you don’t test on your own skin, you’ll never really know. because we’re just recommending you guys based on everything we’ve tried, and here’s another cool tip, you can actually mix it in with your moisturizer and then apply, have you like tried that, so usually with drunk elephant, I will mix in the marula oil with their Lala Retro cream,
wow that’s so much more moisturizing, it’s so hydrating, it is so needed for the winter winds, a little dry I can use this on its own, if it’s very very very dry needless to say I mix it into that, then this one is from honey belle, and it’s their Elixir grapefruit basil rejuvenating facial oil, so this one as you’ll see is like very runny but they create their own in these small little batches, so everything is organic natural homemade, and this one says it has hemp seed oil, it’s packed with omega-3, omega-3 and omega-6 is the linoleic acid and it helps with elasticity, making it healthier stronger and fresher, so yeah all of these oils do help to only like protect your skin from environmental pollutants also ,
these are like great for all skin types, so for greasy skin, once more you only want to stay to oils that are a touch bit thinner in consistency, jojoba is a really great one for every kind of use, on cuticles on hair my eyelashes yeah, what I like to do is pair a aha moisturizer because that helps to get away the dead skin, and then nourish it again with a facial oil at night, so every time you use chemical exfoliants,
you want to make sure it’s probably hydrated after that, otherwise you get like flakiness, so for dry skin like me you will want to stick with more oleic type acids, because it’s just thicker it helps your skin stay more moisturized for much longer, and a great thing to pair facial oils with would be hyaluronic acid, because that first helps your face have hydration, first hydrates your face, locks in the moisture and absorbs the moisture, and gets water to stick where it’s supposed to be, so for the winter months I’ve said in previous videos,
I usually use the glow recipe watermelon moisturizer which has a lot of hyaluronic acid, and afterwards I’ll pair with a thick cream, or even just something like marula oil, then one that i have been using for combo skin is that this rosehip oil, and rosehip oil also helps to mimic your sebum production, but it is also really high in antioxidant properties, this one’s got omega 3 and 6, which is the linoleic,
whoa so nourishing, then the treatment oil that Rowena and that i use is that the Sunday Riley, I used the Luna it’s good for fine lines and wrinkles, it’s like prevention right instead of cure, then the retinol helps also because the blue tansy, I could use nightly , but I’ve switched on and off, I desire my skin gets used to a product, so after I use this for maybe a few months,
I need to stop using it for a few months, for me to start seeing the effects again, It’s like hello I’m back, and it helps with minimizing pores, minimizing the appearance of and then it’s like little distant cousin the UFO clarifying facial oil has salicylic acid in it, so if you have congested pores or breakouts, or you’re feeling like it’s that time of month or whatever it is, I’ll go into that because it’s a medicated treatment oil, and it just helps to like dissolve the sebum in your pores, one last thing is the price point, these do come in various price points, like this is pretty affordable this is affordable, this is definitely affordable, Trader Joe’s, but they all do the same thing, they do, it’s just like packaging,
it’s the brand it’s the marketing, like you can feel safe buying these 100% organic oils, but I would also look into treatment oils, because they’re very specific, all the rest you’ll quite consider them as doing similar things, and in fact i feel with most skincare product, it isn’t always true but the extra money you’re spending, you are investing in relatively higher quality materials, whatever raw material this came from, yeah they can get apricot seed or almond oil from anywhere right, but it’s like you know how Nutella doesn’t taste the same here versus in Italy, it’s because the hazelnut is different, so it’s the same with like these type of nuts, depending on where it’s sourced from, the method that they are doing , is it cold-pressed, or is it a bit like mass burn, that each one affects shelf-life but also quality,
