The face oil trend often evokes a shudder in many of us and fears of endless breakouts and greasy complexions, but in the dry winter months ahead face oils can be used in a variety of creative ways to keep your skin smooth and hydrated. Revamp your beauty regimen for 2016 by incorporating some of these simple beauty hacks that harness the power of hydrating face oils.
1. They provide a boost of hydration
When wind chill levels increase and temperatures start to drop well below zero, face oils become an excellent winter skin companion. Amp up the moisture levels of your daily face cream by blending in a couple drops of oil. Simply mix into your favourite cream and then apply as you would your regular moisturizer. I promise you wont see a single patch of flakey skin all winter!
