Why You Should Add a Facial Oil to Your Skin Care Routine This Spring Why You Should Add a Facial Oil to Your Skin Care Routine This Spring Why You Should Add a Facial Oil to Your Skin Care Routine This Spring

We can all agree that it’s pretty awesome that spring has finally sprung, right? After months spent commuting through slush and snow and hours spent thawing in artificially heated environments, it’s basically an understatement to say that your skin could use a little extra love right about now. And as the season changes, you may want to consider switching up your skin care routine by incorporating a facial oil into it. Below, learn more about one of our favorite facial oils and how to use it the right way this spring.

The L’Oréal Paris Facial Oil for Mature, Dry Skin

With age, you may find your skin starting to change—and that means you’ll have different needs than you used to when you were younger. Here’s the deal: As skin matures, natural oil production can decrease by up to 40 percent. Daily exposure to harmful UV rays further compromises its ability to retain moisture, leaving skin dehydrated and lackluster. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil SPF 30 is a lightweight, non-greasy facial oil that is absorbed quickly to instantly moisturize, nourish, and strengthen mature skin (it’s even suitable for sensitive skin). Formulated with eight essential oils and broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen, the formula provides long-lasting hydration, ultra-soft comfort, and a glow. Immediately, skin will be replenished with hydration, while skin will feel deeply nourished with a radiant glow with continued use over time.

We’ve told you this before, but it’s worth repeating: Wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily is a skin care must—rain or shine—since you can get burned even on cloudy days. When you spend prolonged periods of time in the sun without protection, this can lead to visible signs of aging down the road, like dark spots and wrinkles. Of course, chances are you’re going to be spending a lot more time outdoors now that the weather is getting nicer, which is why sunscreen should be top of mind. This facial oil has you coved with broad-spectrum sunscreen. Hydration and sun protection in one step? We’ll take it!

How to Use the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil SPF 30

You know how during a professional facial, the esthetician will massage products onto your face? Doesn’t that feel good? Well, you can recreate that experience at home by massaging in a facial oil. Not sure at one point during your skin care routine you should use a facial oil? Just follow these steps.

Step 1: Cleanser. The first step in your skin care routine should always be cleansing—but when you have mature skin, choosing the right cleanser is key. As skin matures, it loses moisture, nutrients, and natural oils, resulting in drier skin. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser for mature skin is formulated with replenishing oils to gently yet effectively remove traces of makeup.

Step 2: Facial oil. In the morning, apply 4-5 drops of the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil SPF 30 with your fingers from your nose to ears and outer eye area. Next, smooth the oil from your eyebrows to hairline in an upward motion, and smooth it from your neck to jawline, then your upper chest until absorbed. Since you don’t need to apply sunscreen before bed, use a night cream, like the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Night Cream, in lieu of the facial oil before hitting the hay.

Step 3: Eye cream. Finish up your morning skin care routine with a dab of eye cream, like the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Eye Balm for mature, very dry skin. As skin matures, one of the biggest changes around the eyes is the loss of moisture, nutrients, and natural oils. The skin around the eye area is thinner than the skin on your face, so, as a result, the eye area can become particularly dry, revealing the appearance of bags and dark circles. This rich, luxurious balm intensely moisturizes to nourish mature skin. Skin will feel moisturized immediately, while the look of dark circles and bags will be reduced with continued use over time.
