When choosing an anti-wrinkle oil, it is important to consider the degree of comedogenicity (from 0 to 5 points). This indicator indicates how much the product is able to clog pores. Zero-comedogenic products are suitable for all skin types and won't clog pores. The higher this figure, the more caution they should be used by people with acne and other skin problems caused by clogged pores. However, please note that this information only applies to pure oils.
You should also choose anti-wrinkle products based on skin type. Most products are suitable for normal to dry skin. It is necessary to select them taking into account the individual reaction to certain components.
Combination and oily types of the epidermis are characterized by increased secretion of sebum, so it is necessary to use products marked "non-comedogenic".
Problematic skin often lacks linolenic and linoleic acids, so you should choose products rich in these components (grape seed oils, rose hips).
Base oils (almond, linseed, olive and others) are easily combined with each other. It is important to take no more than 5 types for one serving (in equal doses). If the oil product is used for the preparation of anti-wrinkle cosmetics, the percentage must be observed.
If you want to remove makeup with oil, just apply it to the sponge and treat each area of the face. For these purposes, olive oil is best suited.
Anti-wrinkle face oil is applied with light movements, with fingertips, to moistened skin. It is important to move along the massage lines. For this, 2-3 drops of the product are enough. After the massage, you should apply a cream that matches your face type.
If you have not used anti-wrinkle oils before, you should first apply the product to a small area of the skin. Natural ingredients can cause allergies, so it's best to do a test.
Apply anti-wrinkle oil in doses. Do not apply a lot of product at once on the face, otherwise the skin will become oily and swollen.
When applying a natural product to the face, it is important to warm it in a water bath or in the hands to body temperature (36 degrees). Thus, all components will be better absorbed.
Read the instructions for the selected product in advance. Often it indicates which oils it should not be combined with. Otherwise, you may get the opposite effect of what you want.
