Why Do I Need a Facial Oil
Federation of Holistic Therapists

Why Do I Need a Facial Oil?
Because they look, feel & smell amazing! Because your skin will thank you for it - a good facial oil will leave your skin plumped out, silky & glowing. Because sometimes a moisturiser just isn’t enough.

A facial oil is a clever addition to your skincare routine & you can find one for every skin type. Don’t be put off by the word ‘oil’ as a good facial oil absorbs very quickly leaving no greasy sheen.

OV facial oils are moisturising skincare products: skillful blends of essential oils, plant oils & natural antioxidants providing 'whole' blends designed to have complex actions on different aspects of the skin. OV facial oils:
• Absorb easily & quickly: they are light in texture & aromatic
• Give you an intense boost of hydration & protection
• Help balance the skin's natural oils
• Protect your skin from the external environment: toxins, harsh weather, pollution, dehydrating central heating, air conditioning etc.
• Deliver vitamins & antioxidants to fight free radicals, essential & non-essential fatty acids to nourish the skin, plus many more active compounds, such as phytosterols, chlorophylls & amino acids for skin nutrition to help maintain a youthful appearance, support the acid mantle, protect collagen, encourage elasticity, reduce trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) & reduce signs of ageing.
• Give your skin a beautifully hydrated, plumped-out, glowing appearance
• Help with the absorption of other products so they are great for layering.

Facial oils last for a long time, so they are a great investment. You literally only need a few drops, applied alone or blended with your moisturiser. They can also be used for facial massage, which is a great way to tone up the skin & encourage absorption – we always include face oils in our facial treatments here at OV. Models also apply them backstage to give radiance to their skin on the catwalk. You can do the same with or without the catwalk, by patting a teeny drop over your cheeks, neck & décolleté before a night out!

What's more, OV aromatic facial oils are really feel-good, as the limbic area of your brain reacts in a split second to their sensuous aromas.

How Do I Use a Facial Oil?
After cleansing, dispense one or two drops & inhale the fragrance as it warms in your palms. Massage gently into the skin to aid absorption, using circular movements & upward strokes, treating face, neck & décolleté.

If your skin is oily, apply just one drop initially – you don’t want to break out by over-applying. Otherwise you can use a few drops, more if your skin is very dry or dehydrated. Customise your routine so that it works for you.

Alternatively, blend a drop of oil in the palm of your hand with your moisturiser & apply as normal. (Don’t use with an SPF moisturiser as it may dilute the SPF).

Safety advice: Designed for healthy adults. For external use; avoid eyes, mucous membranes, broken skin. Contains nut & seed oils so avoid if you have a known allergy. If pregnant/breast feeding you may wish to avoid essential oils. As a sensible precaution, we suggest a patch test 24 hours before use. If irritation occurs, discontinue use. Store away from light & heat with lid tightly closed. Enjoy using your facial oil.
