5 Fun and Easy Tips for Using Face Oils!

Hey there, skincare lovers! If you’ve picked up (or been gifted) a bottle of face oil and you're wondering how to make the most of it, you’re in for a treat. Face oils are like the superheroes of the skincare world, ready to swoop in and save the day with their moisturizing, nourishment, and glow-boosting powers. Let’s dive into some fun and easy ways to incorporate these magic elixirs into your daily routine.


1. The Morning Boost

Start your day with a burst of hydration and radiance! After cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser, apply a few drops of your favorite face oil. Think of it as a morning smoothie for your skin—packed with nutrients and ready to fuel your glow. Our All Day Slay Daytime Oil makes the perfect morning skin pick me up. Gently massage the oil into your skin using upward, circular motions. Follow with your regular moisturizer and don’t forget your SPF. Your skin will look dewy and fresh, the perfect canvas for makeup or a bare-faced, natural look.


2. Mix It with Your Moisturizer

Here’s a little secret: you don’t always have to choose between your moisturizer and face oil. Combine them! Add a drop or two of face oil to your favorite moisturizer and mix it in the palm of your hand. This combo gives you the best of both worlds—intense hydration from the moisturizer and a silky smooth finish from the oil. Apply it all over your face and neck, and watch your skin drink it up!


3. Midday Glow-Up

Didn't have time for a full routine in the morning and feeling a bit dry or dull halfway through the day? Face oils to the rescue! A lightweight face oil can be your perfect midday pick-me-up. Simply warm a drop between your fingers and press it gently onto your cheeks, forehead, and any dry areas. It’s an instant refresh that revives your skin without messing up your makeup.


4. Overnight Hydration Station

Nighttime is when your skin goes into repair mode, so it’s the perfect opportunity to indulge it with some extra TLC. After your usual nighttime cleansing and serum routine, apply a few drops of face oil. Choose an oil like our Thirst Trap Nighttime Recover Oil with ingredients like rosehip or argan, known for their rejuvenating properties. Massage it in and let it work its magic while you sleep. You’ll wake up to soft, supple, and radiant skin—like you’ve had a full eight hours of beauty sleep (even if you haven’t).


5. Under-Eye Elixir

The delicate skin around your eyes deserves some love too. Face oils can double as a nourishing under-eye treatment. Dab a tiny amount of oil onto your ring finger and gently pat it around your eye area. This can help with hydration, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and give your eyes a rested, bright look. Just be sure to use a light hand and avoid getting oil directly into your eyes.


Bonus: DIY Face Oil Masks

Feeling crafty? Create your own face oil mask for a spa-like experience at home. Mix a few drops of your face oil with some honey or aloe vera gel and apply it to your face. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. Your skin will feel deeply nourished and incredibly soft.


So as you can see, face oils are versatile, luxurious, and a fantastic addition to any skincare routine. Whether you’re mixing them with your moisturizer, using them as an overnight treatment, or just adding a midday glow, there’s a way for everyone to enjoy their benefits. So go ahead, give your skin the love it deserves, and let your natural beauty shine through.

Remember, skincare is all about finding what works best for you and having fun along the way!
