Deciding when to apply a facial oil depends on your skin type. Applying a facial oil before bed is an optimal time for those experiencing dryness and stress as your skin will soak up the oil overnight, giving you the moisture, nutrients, and protection that your skin needs during the day.
For those will dullness, using a facial oil in the morning is your best bet. We recommend using your go-to facial oil as a primer before makeup to enhance your skin's radiance for a hydrated, dewy look--just make sure to let the oil fully absorb first before you put on your makeup.
Facial oils should be applied differently than your moisturisers and serums. Instead of rubbing it into your skin, she says that you must dab or pat the oil to ensure that the formula gets into your pores and doesn't just sit on top of your face. This will not only help improve your facial oil's efficacy, but it will also allow the product to absorb faster as well.
Remember: a little goes a long way. You only need about one to three drops of a facial oil to reap its benefits.
