Shy about using a face oil? If you aren’t getting what you need from your face cream alone,  oil treatments—the latest craze in the fight against anti-aging and wrinkles—may become your best friend.

You may cringe at the thought of using an oil product on your face. If you do suffer from oily skin, oil treatments can actually help manage pore-clogging sebum by helping your skin to produce less oil. Not only do face oils have anti-aging properties but they also plump, hydrate and balance skin—a powerful combo for glowing, healthy skin!

Tips on how to use a face oil:

1. Always apply oil on cleansed face.
2. Release 2-3 drops of oil on fingers and gently dab oil on cheeks, forehead and chin.
3. Next, gently swipe the oils in upwards motion to massage into the skin.
4. Wear alone, or under face cream.
