Practice English Speaking&Listening with: Best Facial Oils

Difficulty: 0

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.
