A study commissioned by P&G in 2016 revealed that women truly start living their lives when they reach their 40s and 50s. They are finally free from the insecurities and naive shyness that preoccupied their senses in their 20s and 30s.
Though the study was made on women above 50, it made sense even for 40+ women who finally started getting comfortable in their own skin and embracing their years.
And isn’t that more real and beautiful rather than pursuing the exhausting and overwhelming anti-aging trend that is more of a marketing gimmick than a realistic approach?
The same stands true in the context of skincare and makeup. Being comfortable in your own skin also means being kind to your skin and lessening the exposure to harsh chemicals and their inevitable side effects.
Face oils for glowing skin, for example, are quickly emerging as a potential natural alternative to skincare and makeup essentials.
The most prominent innovation in this line is the pre-makeup face oil that stands tall against chemical-based primers. How? Here are the top three reasons that answer this question in the most subtle way:
- Hydration: Natural face oils are a boon for dry skin as they can keep the skin hydrated and nourished. They can maintain the optimum moisture levels in the skin by creating a barrier that saves the skin from the ill effects of chilly air. Those with oily or normal skin can always go for lightweight oils that contain non-comedogenic properties and may regulate sebum production in a healthy manner.
- Gives a Healthy Glow To Dull Skin: As we move into the fourth decade of our lives, the fatty acids and antioxidant levels start receding. It enlarges skin pores and invites several types of skin issues. Pure essential oil can easily resolve this problem by meeting the growing demand for antioxidants and fatty acids without disturbing the normal pH levels. You can easily ditch those expensive illuminating primers that promise a shimmering touch but often end up doing more harm than good.
- Smooth Makeup Base: The usual texture of smoothing primers is a little thick and often doesn’t settle well in the skin giving a cakey finish to your makeup. A lightweight face oil can easily help you avoid this problem as it gets quickly absorbed into the skin and leaves a smooth texture. Also, most primers come with a silicone-based formula that clogs pores and if absorbed by the skin it may lead to breakouts and acne.
