Once you have a skin care routine that you’re consistent with, it’s always nice to find new and exciting ways to step it up a notch. Who doesn’t want better skin? Even when you already have nice skin, it’s always great to keep improving, right? The thing about skin care is that it’s never done – we need to constantly update our skin care routine and make sure we’re adjusting things as needed. One of the new ways many people are improving their skin care routine is by adding facial oils into the mix. If you’ve been curious about this trend, you’re going to want to keep on reading because we’re sharing tips for adding facial oils to your skin care routine.

Add It to Your Moisturizer

One of the easiest ways to add facial oils to your skin care routine is by combining it with your moisturizer. You can literally add a couple drops to your moisturizer and mix together before applying to your skin for super easy results. Adding a facial oil to your moisturizer is a great way to get the benefits from both products in one step. We’re all about making things easy, and if you’ve been on a consistent routine of cleansing, toning and moisturizing this could be the best way to get started in using facial oils in your skin care routine. Of course it is important to make sure that you do your research to make sure that the facial oil you’re using is going to work well with your skin type and concerns.

Apply It Like a Serum

If you want to try making a facial oil a stand-alone step in your skincare routine, experts suggest that you apply your facial oil after you tone your skin and before you moisturize. This will help your skin to really absorb the facial oil, and the moisturizer will really help to lock in the moisture. By now you probably know that serums can easily do wonders for the skin, and many experts suggest that facial oils can have similar benefits to a serum. That being said, you’ll be applying a facial oil, in the same manner, you would a serum. Additionally, make sure that you’re gentle in the way that you apply the oil and remember that you don’t need a lot of the oil to get the benefits.

Use for a Mask

Another great way to add facial oils to your skin care routine? By creating a skin treatment mask with the use of facial oils. Facial oils have been found to be incredibly healing to the skin and really give the skin a ton of benefits, much like masks and exfoliating treatments do.  So combining facial oils in a DIY mask is a great way to boost your skincare routine.
