As the weather really started to cool down + dry out this winter, my face started to have a really hard time staying hydrated. The skin on my face started to feel like sandpaper in patches. I've been using Everyday Oil for a year or two, but my regular application ceased to suffice.
I came across a new product + was quite taken in by its promises to hydrate + soften. Before purchasing this new product, I revisited the Everyday Oil website. I decided to give a few of their tips a try in order to make this beloved product work in these colder, dryer months. And, boy, did this new regimen come through for me!
Here's what I'm currently doing for soft, hydrated skin on my face:
- everyday oil only (no soap)
- wet skin before applying
- morning + evening
My face just gets wet in the shower (no soap). When I'm ready to moisturize my face each morning, I wet it first + then apply one pump's worth of oil to my face + neck (any leftovers are rubbed into my hands which are still a little bit wet too). I do this again in the evening. Since I don't want excess oil to stain my pillowcase, I wipe the excess off of my face (evening only) + sleep on an extra pillowcase. (Though I haven't noticed any oily marks on that pillowcase.)
I haven't tried doing this on my body, because I'm afraid of the oily consequences on my clothing...but I'm curious about it. I am totally blown away by the transformation of my face. It doesn't feel oily or dirty. I only wear mascara for make-up + I can rub the Everyday Oil right into my eye lashes in order to remove it in the evening. There is no burning or irritation. It's really just amazing to experience a whole new way of doing things. These organic plant oils are just what my skin needs to stay hydrated + balanced.
If you happen to be interested in giving Everyday Oil a try (or need a refill), they are currently offering 20% off of a 2 oz. bottle with the code flowerpower...through Sunday, Feb. 6). I am not affiliated with EO...I just love them! :)
