While face oils are great for hydrating and nourishing skin during the cold, dry winter months, they also have applications that can leave your skin looking and feeling great no matter the season. Here are 5 ways to incorporate Alder New York's Fortifying Face Oil into your skincare routine all year long.
Mix it with Moisturizer or Serum
Adding oil to your moisturizer gives you the all the benefits of a nourishing oil with the experience of using a moisturizer. Apply a bit of Everyday Face Moisturizer to the palm of your hand and then add a few drops of Fortifying Face Oil, do a quick mix with your fingers and then apply to your face. You can do the same with Everyday Face Serum to boost the nourishing factor, or with an SPF face lotion to protect from UV rays.
Add Oil to Your Foundation
For a more sheer, natural look, mix face oil with your foundation. It will give it a more transparent, lightweight consistency and leave your skin looking glowy, hydrated, and give you the perfect amount of coverage.
Boost the Hydration Factor of Your Face Mask
Add a few drops of oil to your clay based face mask to get the exfoliating effects of the mask with the hydrating and nourishing qualities of the face oil. We like giving Alder New York's Brightening Face Mask a little boost of face oil to leave skin looking extra radiant.
Condition Facial Hair
Use face oil to condition eye brows, mustaches, beards and prevent dry skin and dandruff. The oil blend in Alder New York's Fortifying Face Oil softens course facial hair while simultaneously boosting skins' natural defenses and hydration factor.
Take off Makeup
Oils are excellent at picking up and binding to dirt and makeup which makes them a great facial cleanser. In the evening, apply oil to a soft cloth to clean your face. You'll benefit from the cleansing, as well as the antioxidants and omega fatty acids in the oil. Plus, it won't dry out your face like many other harsh makeup removers and cleansers.
