Tips to Apply Face Oil Correctly Without Breaking Out

With face oils becoming a must-have, these tips on applying them may come in handy

A change in our skincare routine can initially have a negative impact on how our skin responds. A breakout is not unusual, especially when you first start using face oils. This is because improperly applied oil can clog pores. For all skin types, though, picking the correct face oil can work miracles. For facial skin, specific lightweight oils are designed to get absorbed easily. We share more such tips on how to apply face oil correctly without breaking out.

6 Tips to use face oil

#1 Use lightweight oils

The Dr G Face Oil

All skin types are well suited to lightweight oils. They do not clog the pore in any situation and are easily absorbed. The Dr G Face Oil is one such blend that contains non-comedogenic, lightweight oils and other plant extracts to nourish the skin. It is enriched with niacinamide, vitamins A, C, and E, ginger extract, sweet almond oil, marula oil, macadamia nut oil, and more to replenish skin nutrients. It helps against acne and has regenerative properties. Though it is a blend, all ingredients are easy to absorb making it a suitable formula for all skin types.

#2 Use face oil at night

At night, our skin gets more time to absorb the benefits of the face oil without any interference. Hence, it is the best time to use facial oil. You can use it as the last step of the skincare routine. Oils take comparatively more time to get absorbed than other skincare products because of their higher molecular composition. Using it last in your routine ensures your skin does not suffocate.

#3 Use adequate quantity

The quantity of oil used daily also has a huge impact on your skin. If you are using too little, the skin may feel parched and dehydrated. If you are using too much, it may clog the pores. The key is to use a dime-size portion of the oil for your face. To use the Dr G Face oil, the best way is to put 3-4 drops of oil all over the face and massage it gently with the help of your hands or a gua sha.

#4 Use only water-based skincare underneath

To ensure the skin pores do not get clogged or have a lot of oil-based products, it is best to use water-based skincare underneath face oil. Products like the Dr G Hydra Cool Plumping Serum can get absorbed very easily through the pores. Using facial oil right after water-based products will be very soothing and nourishing for your skin. Since your skin does not get overloaded by the products, the oil gets absorbed thoroughly.

#5 Do not mix the face oil with anything

It is best to use the oil separately and not mix it with other products. To get the maximum benefit from the oil, use it directly on the skin rather than mixing it with other products. Moreover, mixing it can cause chemical reactions which are adverse for your skin.

#6 Top your active ingredients with face oil

Start the skincare routine with the most active ingredient among the products like salicylic acid or retinol. Then top it off with face oil. This will make sure the actives get absorbed thoroughly in your skin. This way you can get the maximum benefit from all the products being used.

In short, one can say that face oil is very effective but one must use it correctly. This way, it would not adversely affect your skin but you will get the maximum benefit out of it.
