Turn your face oil into your everything oil

Question: How many different types of oils do you really need in your skincare routine and self-care routine? Answer: Only ONE if it’s a good one!

Avoila Nourishing Face Oil has found its way into many of our self-care routines from meditation to makeup. So we've compiled some of our favorites.

1. Cleansing: A basic oil cleanse involves applying the oil, then removing it with warm water or a damp washcloth.

  • Put 10 - 20 drops (a full dropper is about 20 drops) of oil in the palm of your hand.
  • Apply the oil before wetting your face.
  • Use a damp, warm washcloth to gently wipe away the oil.
  • Pat dry with a towel and apply moisturizer, if needed.
2. Makeup Remover: Removing makeup involves loosening the impurities with oil then wiping it all away.
  • Apply the oil before wetting your face.
  • Use your fingertips to gently massage the oil into your skin for several seconds to a minute to remove impurities like makeup and dead skin cells and allow the oil to penetrate.
  • Use a damp, warm washcloth to gently wipe away the oil.
3. Hair Oil: Although we're talking about facial oils, Avoila Nourishing Face Oil can be used on hair to detangle, add shine, reduce frizz or soften your curls.
  • Detangle – Massage generously into the scalp, then distribute and apply throughout the lengths and ends of your hair before you brush out your hair. Then wet hair and shampoo.
  • Soften – Use for scrunching out the crunch on your final curls after applying gel. Put a few drops into your palm and apply from roots to ends avoiding the scalp.
  • Shine – Apply as a last step to dry hair to create a protective barrier around your coils to lock in major levels of moisture and shine. Put a few drops into your palm and apply from roots to ends avoiding the scalp.
  • Reduce frizz – Add a few drops to your palms and apply evenly to towel-dried hair. Work your way from bottom to top, ensuring the oil is spread evenly across the length of strands. Use regularly.
4. Make Up: Let’s face it, the glowy makeup look is here to stay and you probably have some favorite powder blushes and matte lipsticks you just don’t want to part with. Just use your oil to glow up the color!
  • Concealer – Have a concealer that’s too dry or thick? Put it on your palm or the top of your hand and add a drop of oil. Gently tap the blend onto upper cheekbones and anywhere you want a dewy, pearly highlight.
  • Lipstick – Have a matte lipstick or a color that’s too opaque? Swipe a small amount of lipstick on the back of your hand, then add a drop of face oil. Mix and apply that with a lip brush or your fingers.
  • Blush – Turn your powder blush into a cream or your cream blush into a tint. Swipe blush with clean fingertips onto the back of your hand. Add a drop of face oil and tap the soft color onto your cheeks. Add more pigment to achieve the level of intensity you desire.
  • Foundation – Any foundation can get a moisture boost or become a tinted moisturizer by adding one or two drops of face oil and applying it to your face with your fingers or a sponge.
  • Hands and Cuticles – It is so easy to forget to moisturize those cuticles! But if you use your face oil morning and night, you can just add another drop to your hands after you’ve applied it to your face. Just massage into your nail beds. Your hands will thank you for it!

5. Meditation: The essential oils in Avoila were chosen to bring a calming aromatic experience to your self-care routine. So it makes perfect sense to use it as part of your meditation practice.

  • Rose Geranium Oil has a herbaceous aroma with a rosy floral note. It is known to relieve the mind of stress and promote feelings of relaxation and optimism.
  • Grapefruit Oil is considered beneficial due to its ability to soothe the spirit and help balance a tired and overstimulated nervous system.
  • Vetiver Oil is fresh and earthy. These clean, aromatic notes have been known to promote serenity and encourage feelings of tranquility.
