The final crowning step of your skin care routine—moisturizing is mission critical for your skin, preparing your skin to face the day. Skipping this step may be akin to leaving home without the proper layer of clothing on. Your moisturizer provides a vital layer, coating your skin with hydration, nourishment and protection.
Not only does moisturizing lock in and drive your serum's activated ingredients deeper into your skin, but it also strengthens your skin barrier, helping firm and tone the appearance of your skin and keeping it healthy. Certain natural moisturizers deliver nourishing ingredients to your skin, hydrating and transforming the appearance of your skin's health and texture. The right moisturizer also acts as a protective shield for your skin against environmental irritants.
At Annmarie Skin Care, we believe natural oils provide the best moisturization for any skin type. We've formulated our facial oils with wildcrafted ingredients using our proprietary 3-step infusion process. Our facial oils' activated ingredients protect your skin against environmental stressors, lock in your skin's moisture layer, and fortify it with vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients—everything your skin needs to thrive.
We're here to help you make the best decision in finding the ideal facial oil for your skin type. Read on to find the perfect facial oil for your skin needs.
How do you know which facial oil to use?
The best facial oil for your skin depends on your skin type. Remember that your skin type may change with the environment, age, diet and hormones—so you may need different facial oils depending on your circumstances. Ask yourself the following questions before deciding on the best facial oil for you.
What is your skin type?
Skin types fall into 5 main categories: normal, oily, dry, combination and sensitive. Try gently washing your face and leaving it to dry for 30 minutes. If your skin remains dewy with a sheen throughout this time, you most likely have oily skin. If your skin gets tight and dehydrated, you probably have dry skin. Your skin can also be a combination of both, and if your skin doesn't lean either way, you're most likely normal.
What other factors are affecting your skin type?
Consider the climate you live in—is it dry and arid or humid? Or perhaps the changes between the four seasons affect your skin differently. Are there times when you're traveling or more active? Has your diet changed, or have you introduced new medications or supplements? Depending on your body and age, hormones can also affect your skin. Your skin will most likely reflect the changes life invariably takes you through, so observe and listen to your skin.

Which facial oil will you choose?
Once you've decided on a facial oil, try it out and listen to your skin. Notice if your skin's still feeling too dry or is sensitive. Also, avoid these common mistakes when using facial oil as a moisturizer. Try spritzing toner to help carry your facial oil into your skin. You can also try using different facial oils, perhaps a lighter one in the morning and a richer one in the evening. Continue exploring until you land on the perfect facial oil for your skin needs. Also, allow your skin some time to transition, especially when you've just begun using natural products.
As your skin matures, an effective facial oil can make all the difference in nourishing and improving your complexion. Round out your ideal anti-aging skin care routine with effective, plant-based facial oils that restore your radiant complexion.
