Ditch the lotion for the Oil, Here is Why..... - by Jesse Golden
Posted on March 01 2018
Our skin is our largest organ and everything we put onto it gets absorbed into our system. When you know this, it is hard to ignore the products ingredients and their effects on your over all health.
Americans traditionally tend to use lotion on their body. But in Europe and other parts of the world, oil is actually the more popular choice for achieving hydrated, beautiful skin.
Obviously, we are huge fans of body oils but you may be surprised to learn why.
Oils protect the skin's lipid barrier and are great at preventing moisture from evaporating from the skin.
Many lotions have added fillers & emulsifiers to create its creamy texture. Where as plant based oils naturally keep our skin hydrated and radiant without needing the added ingredients.
Some people believe applying oil, especially to acne-prone skin, will clog pores, cause breakouts, or leave a greasy film. The truth is, many dermatologists recommend natural face oils when you have acne-driven or oily skin. The natural face oils actually help dial down your skin's natural sebum production, balancing out the skin, therefore, having less breakouts.
Natural oils are easily absorbed, not greasy, and noncomedogenic; that is, they have a low potential to clog pores, which makes The Golden Secret's oils perfect for all skin types.
