01. What is an oil-based skincare
The sebum membrane, the first natural barrier of the skin. Using oil to nourish the skin means using skin care oils to moisturize the sebaceous membrane of the skin to improve the dryness of the skin caused by the low oil production of the sebaceous glands, thus strengthening the sebaceous membrane to provide moisture to the skin.
In fact, it is the presence of the sebaceous membrane that makes our skin pro-oil but not pro-hydration, so skin care oils are more easily absorbed by our skin.
02. The principle of skin nourishment with oil
Simply put, the principle of skin nourishment with oil is to replenish and strengthen the sebaceous membrane. This layer of skin outside the stratum corneum helps to insulate the skin from external stimuli and also prevents the loss of skin moisture, thus playing a protective role. Our sebaceous glands produce sebum all the time.
When they are secreted, they spread out on the surface of the skin and form a sebum film. However, people with dry skin produce very little sebum. This causes their sebum film to be not as strong as normal skin or oily skin.
03. What are the benefits of nourishing skin with oil?
Light and mature women over the age of 25 have a gradual decrease in oil secretion, so the use of oil nourishment at this time can externally replenish the skin's lack of soil nutrients, thus reducing skin sensitivity and dryness.
Oil-based skincare usually helps to restore nutrients to the skin, rapidly hydrates the skin, strengthens the sebaceous barrier, provides a concentrated dose of essential fatty acids to the skin, and aids in skin care.
Natural oils contain some unsaturated fatty acids and other nutrients, which can provide the skin with some essential nutrients, and regular use of natural oils can achieve the function of strengthening the skin's sebaceous membrane barrier, especially for dry skin, and their own skin sebum production is too low.
Proper care of the skin with oil, usually can make the surface of the skin form a protective film and can help the skin to maintain a moist state, good natural oil does not make the skin a burden, not to worry about the risk of acne and so on.
04. What kind of skin type is suitable for this "oil for skin" skin care mode?
1. Desert dry skin, dry skin all year round
2. Combination skin, recommended for use in autumn and winter
3. People with damaged skin barrier
To sum up: dry skin needs oil to replenish nutrients; sensitive skin needs oil to thicken the barrier; acne skin needs oil to soften the sebum film and accelerate metabolism; mature skin needs to replenish oil for reduced oil secretion.
