How to Incorporate Facial Oils to Your Beauty Routine
If you want to use facial oils in the morning, you have to use it with your foundation as it is known to dilute the SPF content of daytime moisturizers. Just apply a few drops then layer it with your moisturizer and foundation.
You can use facial oil at night as well. After washing, toning, and exfoliating, massage a few drops of facial oil on to your face. You can layer in a nighttime moisturizer or serum to maximize skin repair. If you had a long day and your bed is beckoning, you can simplify things by adding a few drops of the facial oil to your nighttime moisturizer or serum.
