What are the benefits of incorporating natural face oil into your daily routine?

Face oils have so many skin care benefits, they can naturally hydrate the skin, fade scarring and pigmentation, and reduce breakouts… Just to name a few! Face oils help to supplement the natural oils within the skin to add moisture and help repair the barrier that keeps that moisture in. The regular use of a natural face oil creates healthy skin, leaving you glowing everyday.

There are an extensive variety of face oils available, each targeted for specific concerns. Depending on the type of oil it may naturally have other purported benefits, such as anti-aging, anti-inflammatory or antioxidant properties.

Are there different types of oils?

Natural oils have been a popular addition to skincare routines for years. However, many people lack the knowledge of how to use their face oil to promote great benefits. If you’re wondering ‘How do I use face oil?’ or ‘How much do I use?’ then you need our help! Follow along for tips and tricks on how to incorporate natural oil into your beauty routine.

Dry Oil: Unlike massage oil, which stays primarily on top of the skin to reduce friction, dry oil is a very light oil that is instantly absorbed. Our go-to face oil for dry skin is the INIKA Botanical Face Oil. It consists of a pure blend of 18-high end botanical oils that instantly absorb to leave a dry finish, eliminating that greasy after-feel.

Rich Oil: Consists of a more concentrated formula, in which it is absorbed by the skin at a slower rate, yet provides a deeper level of hydration for extra dry skin. The INIKA Rosehip Oil Blend is rich in fatty acids, helping to reduce the signs of premature ageing and nourish and repair even the driest skin.

How can I use my natural oil?


Natural face oil is a great alternative to moisturisers and heavy creams. They allow our skin to rejuvenate by promoting natural healing properties within the skin, without blocking pores.

For extra dry skin, we recommend combining your natural oil with a Rich Night Cream to create a face mask which can be left on the skin for 15 minutes, helping the healing process to take place. Allow the skin to continue absorbing the moisturiser or try washing the cream off afterwards for fresh and hydrated skin.

Are you thinking of trying a natural face oil for the added benefits, but unsure whether it’s suitable for your oily skin? Despite your skin type, incorporating a natural oil will greatly benefit your skin health. Although oils are typically recommended for dry and mature skin due to their increased hydration, oils can also be used for those with oily skin. It is important to select a face oil that is suited to your unique skin type, while using it in a way that won’t cause breakouts.


Incorporating a natural face oil into your daily makeup routine works to hydrate and protect the skin throughout the day, while helping you to achieve a glowing complexion! We suggest trying the following methods:

  • Mix it with your primer
    Mixing your oil with primer makeup works to create a dewy base while preparing the skin for easy application. Not only will this enhance your makeup throughout the day, but repair skin at the same time. For easy application, we suggest combining the primer with a few drops of the oil in your palm and applying evenly to the face and neck.
  • Mix it with your foundation
    Noted as a top beauty tip with makeup artists across the world, this hack works to give the face a natural looking glow. Combine your face oil and foundation to achieve a sheer look, providing you with a glowing complexion. Simply add a few drops of your oil onto the back of your hand with your chosen foundation, then begin applying to the face.
  • Use it to prime the skin
    Face oil is a great alternative to primer as it deeply hydrates the skin while creating a base for repair underneath your makeup throughout the day. Simply take 3 drops of the oil in your palm and apply evenly to the face and neck. You are sure to love the results that come from this beauty hack!
  • Mix with eyeshadow to create a dewy, glowing look
    Have you ever wondered how makeup artists achieve that dewy eyeshadow look? Well here’s your answer! Try combining your eyeshadow with face oil to create an almost wet eye look. To achieve this look, we suggest applying a drop of your oil to the eyelids before applying your eyeshadow.


Natural oil is a great addition to your holistic beauty routine, especially during the colder months when our skin starts to experience dryness. To promote smooth skin, apply your selected natural oil evenly over the body before bed, allowing the skin to rejuvenate overnight. Wake up to beautifully glowing skin everyday!

Additionally, you may try combining your natural oil with a bronzer in the warmer months to get that sun-kissed glow. Or try using your oil for hydration on your legs after shaving. The options are endless!


Nothing completes a manicure quite like natural oil. We suggest applying a drop of natural oil to each cuticle after completing your manicure to achieve long lasting hydration.


Natural oil is great at promoting hair health, as regular application helps to reduce hygral fatigue. Oil works to protect the follicle from surfactants by filling the gap between the cuticle cells. We suggest gently massaging the oil into your scalp before bed, allowing for exfoliation which in turns will prevent hair loss.

Additionally, we suggest applying a few drops of your natural oil to the ends of freshly washed, damp hair for extra hydration before drying the hair. Once you’ve finished styling your hair, oil can be used to smooth frizz and add shine.
