Does the mere thought of using facial
oils make you cringe? Ever thought about using a facial oil but were afraid of
waking up to a grease-slicked face or a face full of pimples? Although there are
quite a number of facial oils available for the skin, I actually looked at 79. No,
really… I did look at 79 facial oils! So I narrowed it down to several factors.
Although there are a lot of beneficial facial oils out there, I am actually
going to focus on some that are not quite as common as the ones that you
hear. And how I based it on was, number one, an oil that you could use for dry,
aging skin, all the way down to the other end of the spectrum for Acne skin — or
breakout-prone skin — as well as the availability — how available it was to be
able to purchase this — and the longer the shelf-life. So a lot of oils, especially
nut-based oils, they don’t last as long, they go rancid very quickly. So I looked
at the shelf-life as well as the pricing of them. And I wanted everyone who used a
facial oil, if you decided to use a facial oil, to get the most BANG for your
buck. Meaning, that it had a whole array of more beneficial ingredients into the
oil. Now if you’re wondering what the difference is between a facial OIL and a
SERUM, serums are always going to be penetrated a lot more quicker because
the serums, they can make the delivery system more efficient and more
concentrated. But natural oils is a natural way of delivering some of the
benefits of what the oil can bring to your face. Hey there! My name is Christy
of Go See Christy Beauty Boutique and if you haven’t been following our videos,
we have been treating skin conditions such as Acne, aging, hyperpigmentation, as
well as other skin conditions for over TEN years.
So in this video we are going to be talking about some of the best facial
oils for dry and aging skin. So if you think you’re going to be addressing
dehydration of the skin by just adding oils, oils do NOT help with hydrating the
skin. So make sure you catch our video on how to treat DRY versus DEHYDRATED skin
on the “i” link below, as well as we’ll put a link in the description below so you
can watch that after this video. So generally speaking, oils are higher in
Oleic Acid and they are better to treat DRY skin. So if you’re not sure whether
you actually have dehydrated skin or dry skin, then again, make sure you catch that
video on how to treat dry versus dehydrated skin.
Now oils that are higher in Oleic Acid tend to be a little bit heavier, they
tend to be thicker. Now they are OCCLUSIVE. So they DON’T add moisture to
the skin. “Occlusive” means that it prevents-, it sits on top of the skin and
it prevents moisture that you already have in your skin from escaping or
evaporating. So if you already have skin that doesn’t have enough moisture, it is
NOT going to add more moisture to your skin. Because it does tend to have an
occlusive benefit to the skin, it does tend to clog pores in some skin types. So
this is better for, again, people who tend to have dry skin and they don’t produce
enough oil. They also tend to have a longer shelf-life than oils that are higher
in Linoleic Acid but the oils that are higher in Oleic Acid, they tend to have
more anti-inflammatory properties and they have more skin-softening properties.
Now people with oilier skin and breakout- prone skin, for those of you who CAN use
a facial oil — because there are some of you who can’t use it at all — they tend to
do better with oils that are higher in Linoleic Acid, and that is because the
consistency of that is a lot thinner, it’s a lot smoother, and how it can help
the skin is it actually helps restore it-, the skin’s own natural barrier function —
so it prevents scaling of the skin. So if you’re finding this information helpful,
or you watched our other videos and you haven’t subscribed yet, please go
ahead and hit the SUBSCRIBE button, and don’t forget to hit the notification
bell so you will be notified of our next video, which will be HOME REMEDIES that
you can do to treat dry and dehydrated skin. Okay, so the first one is Sea
Buckthorn Berry oil. It rates really low on the comedogenic scale — so what that
means it’s really, really low in causing clogged pores — it also has a longer shelf-life and it is easier to acquire. It also has a really high absorption rate, so
it’s really good for skin conditions, whether you have a really, really dry
skin, itchy skin, Eczema skin, as well as Acne-prone skin. It’s also great for
wrinkles because it’s really high in anti-oxidants, Flavonoids, and Keratines. So it has Vitamin A, C, and E as well as Lycopene. Which, as you know, if you’ve been watching my videos,
the anti-oxidants will improve skin metabolism, which then helps the wrinkles,
as well as the skin-, the skin’s ability to renew its own brand new skin cells. And
it is the only known plant source that has the COMPLETE Omega family — meaning
Omega 3, 6, 7, and 9. And again, if you’ve been watching our videos on this, it also
prevents GLYCATION, it helps neutralize Glycation. and Glycation is an aging
product-, or aging PROCESS that breaks down Collagen and Elastin. So if you
don’t know what Glycation, is make sure you check out our videos on ant-, the Anti-Aging Series. So it actually neutralizes Glycation, which is great for a natural oil. Now here is our PRO TIP: You can use this oil
as an oil-infusion treatment. And click the link to SUBSCRIBE and get the
notification because that video will be coming out afterwards on how to do HOME
treatments for remedies to treat dry and aging skin. So you can use this
oil for an oil-infusion treatment. Now the next one is Tomato Seed oil. So this
one also has a longer shelf-life, it has a high absorption rate, rates really
low on the comedogenic scale as well, and it is best used for skin conditions
such as: Eczema, Psoriasis, dry skin, aging skin, and age spots. It’s also loaded with
anti-oxidants, such as — here’s the mouthful — Carotenoids, Phytosterols, and Flavonoids.
And these all help neutralize the free radicals that age your skin. So this last
one is Prickly Pear Seed oil or Barbary Fig oil. This also has a longer shelf-life, it is lower in the comedogenic scale — not as low as the other two that I
mentioned but it’s still fairly low on that — and it’s great for aging skin as
well as Acne, because, again, it’s filled with a lot of anti-oxidants.
Now this seed oil has 150% MORE of Vitamin E than
Argan oil, and again, this also is filled with Carotenoids and Flavonoids, and
Vitamin C. So it is great oil for aging. Now why this is great for those of you
who tend to have oilier skin or breakout-prone skin is this oil actually
helps MINIMIZE the appearance of larger pores — so it actually tightens up
the pores. It actually helps with hydration and… when I say “helps with
hydration” it actually helps INCREASE your skin’s ability to hold in the
moisture. So remember, if you have a serious hyperpigmentation, or age spots,
or some pretty serious Acne, serums are always going to
be better because they have better delivery systems and they also have a
higher amount of performance ingredients versus natural facial oils. But I did
want to go ahead and offer you the option of these three oils. So what I’d
like for you to do is comment below and let us know which oil did you think was
the best one and I’ll go ahead and include the product links in the
descriptions below.

  1. I use sea buckthorn in my oil cleanser and love it! Because of the strong orangey colour I don’t use it it in my facial oil blend, but may try to add a bit. I’ve also used prickly pear and it’s amazing! It’s more expensive, and I’ve used up my current supply, but think I may get some more. Thanks for an informative video Christy!!

  2. Wow! I never would have thought to use facial oils – thanks for the info and appreciate you taking the time to go through SO MANY oils!

  4. So much valuable info! I’d like to get your opinion on a night routine for aging, acne prone skin:

    2. Retin A
    3. veg glycerin or hylauranic acid serum
    4. sea buckhorn berry oil

  5. Thanks, I gotta try sea buckthorn and prickly pear! What do you think of cucumber seed oil? I found a nice one that seems to help with inflammation. I also use squalane oil from olives.

    I’ve read mixed reviews on saturated vs unsaturated oils on your skin. The unsaturated tend to have more antioxidants but the saturated are supposed to not oxidize as easily on your skin. Also curious on your thoughts about adding essential oils to these. Really love how informative your videos are, thanks!

  6. Thank you for the detailed information. Pls make a video on how to treat whiteheads… I have on my forehead and tried several exfoliating scrub but no relief… thank you Christy Ma'am

  7. So glad I found your channel … you speak the truth! I personally love facial oils … my all-time fave is marula oil.

  8. I won't go into the 2 comedogenic range as I know my skin will react badly. I stick with zero and 1

  9. Hey Christy, I love your videos but I'm wondering what your credentials are as you are so informative and knowledgeable

  10. Never used buckthorn Berry oil o the prickeld pear woud like to try thank you I have conbinacion. Thank you 🌼

  11. I have a question regarding the tomato seed oil. My 7 year old has eczema, can this be rubbed directly on her eczema patches? Also, can all three of these oils be mixed together?

  12. I use a face oil that has cocunut , argan , olive oil, vitamin e , and like ten other oils in it I absolutely love it Im 47 it makes my skin so soft but never greasy it's fabulous I love it it's never clogged my pores

  13. Hi Ms. Cristy!:) I just wanna ask if Jojoba oil is good for the face? I bought it from Amazon but I'm not using yet because I am afraid werher its really good for the skin or it may cause breaks out..because I have really dry skin but on my T zone its very oily thats why I really don't know if its good to use jojoba oil on my face..and I am turning 42 this year but I have a lot of lines around my eyes since early 20's but its getting even worse now. Can you help me for this and do you have a site where we can buy your products? I think you're very professional about this and I believe in you..More power to you! Thank you for all the information!

  14. Hi Christy I love your videos! I'm trying to start my own mini skincare business at home and still find myself getting confused with serums vs facial oils. So to call a product a "facial oil" means the oils are heavier and you apply them AFTER a moisturizer? While serums are lighter oils and sink into the skin faster allowing you to use them BEFORE you moisturize?

  15. Can’t thank you enough for taking the time to educate us! This is such valuable information. I have probably wasted so much money on buying the wrong product for my skin, but thanks to you- now I know!

  16. I’ve just discovered your channel this morning – this is the 3rd video…excellent…one thing that does bother me somewhat is the sound quality. It’s slight harsh and not pleasant to listen to. But I’m sure it’s easy for you to have fixed? Hope so. Thanks for posting

  18. Please explains how to use facial oils into skincare routine?
    Can facial oils used under sunscreen?

  19. How do you feel about chia seed oil for moisterizing the face? I just recently ordered some because I read some reviews that it helps dry skin

  20. Saw you first time and loved your video : subscribed , hope you always stay genuine

    PS I think applying Vaseline petroleum jelly over oil helps oil get absorbed completely

  21. Love your skin. Thanks for all the beneficial information. Can I use both Prickly pear oil and Sea Buckthorn oil at the same time with a carrier oil?

  22. Christy thanks for sharing! You have flawless skin and look young! I’m curious, do you mind telling us how old you are? I want to have beautiful skin like yours, do you have your am and pm skin care and the products you use? Thank you christy!😍

  23. Going to be 58 in December and have sensitive DRY thinner skin. My derm gave me a sample of squalane and it has saved my skin. I'm an esthetician but never tolerated or personally liked facial oils until trying squalane. It doesn't feel exactly like an oil to me bc it melts into skin so well… not sure about the science on that? Is it a "true" oil? I've also recently discovered Sea Buckthorn oil and LOVE LOVE LOVE it as well! It def penetrates better than any other oil I've tried. I'm loving your channel, thank you for the great info. Always looking to improve my knowledge – there's so much to know!
