- Pat or dab oil into your skin: One of the natural temptations, when applying a skincare product, is to massage it into your skin. While oils have more slip, they are thicker than moisturizers, and rubbing them into your skin might not result in them fully absorbing into it. This is why dermatologists recommend dabbing or patting face oils into your pores to stimulate blood flow, and help the oil fully absorb. When sustained, this habit of patting is a gamechanger for your skin as, with better absorption, your face will appear less shiny.
- Combine with moisturizers or serums: Oils can work very well in conjunction with a moisturizer, or a serum you are already using. They create a nice base for these products to blend into and help you apply them easier. The benefit of combining your oil with other products also shortens your skincare routine and gives you enhanced effects. It’s recommended to avoid combining face oil with sunscreen, though.

With a skincare product that matches the consistency of sebum, it can be easy to both use it incorrectly and judge it harshly. So, here’s a guide on how to make the most of the face oils you have or want in your skincare routine.
How to use face oils correctly
- Apply oil-based on your skin’s needs: Not everybody needs to slather on a thick coat of jojoba oil before bedtime. Some people struggle with dry patches and spot treating those with a nourishing antioxidant-rich oil can be just what they need. Similarly, some oils can cause too much of a shine to be worked in during the day, especially for oily skin. Hence, using them as an overnight treatment is wiser. For those with dull skin, however, a facial oil might make the ideal primer, since it gives your skin a dewy glow on which your makeup can sit.
