Choosing a facial oil to reduce wrinkles

How to choose an anti-wrinkle facial oil

As you get older and wiser, your face changes and your skin starts to sag. If you want to help keep your skin radiant, firm and toned, it’s important that you use the right products – and good-quality products too! An anti-wrinkle cream is an essential in many skincare routines, but why not try something different and even more natural to keep wrinkles at bay? If you’ve never tried an anti-wrinkle facial oil before, read on, and let Absolution tell you all about them!

What are wrinkles and how can you reduce them?

If you’re like most people, you probably count on your skincare to keep your skin supple and radiant, but also to get rid of certain skin irregularities. Wrinkles and fine lines are one of the signs of time passing, and let’s face it, we can’t change the fact that time passes. But there are ways to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. To do this, we need to understand where wrinkles come from and why they form. These tiny folds on the surface of the skin can result from several factors:

    • Lack of hydration
    • Smoking
    • Excessive sun exposure
    • Repeated facial expressions
    • Genetic predispositions

Of course, there are also wrinkles that are simply the result of aging. As we get older, cell renewal slows down, and the skin lacks collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin – all of which are naturally produced by the body. At the same time, sebaceous glands in the skin produce less and less sebum, and this tends to make the skin drier and more dehydrated. Finally, the face starts to sag and loses elasticity.

While it’s impossible to get rid of wrinkles completely without surgery or injections, there are some products that can delay their appearance and reduce them visibly.

Keeping your skin hydrated, being careful about what you eat, making sure you drink enough water and get enough sleep, staying away from cigarettes, etc.

All these lifestyle factors make a difference. But you can also count on Absolution to help! Among the many gentle, natural, anti-aging skincare products are anti-wrinkle facial oils that will bring out your beauty. All you have to do is find the one that works perfectly with your skin type.

Why use botanical oils to prevent and soften wrinkles?

 

Following the right skincare routine is crucial if you want to look after your skin. Removing makeup and cleansing are both essential steps, along with applying moisturizer.

You can, of course, decide to use a face cream, but an anti-wrinkle facial oil offers many benefits that your skin will appreciate even more.

A face oil nourishes the skin, protects it against aggressors, and leaves behind a protective film. But that’s not all… When you use an anti-wrinkle oil, you also act on your skin’s overall balance, and soften fine lines and wrinkles. Natural and nourishing botanical oils help to keep your skin fresh and toned, despite the passing years.

Be careful not to confuse botanical oils with essential oils. They are not extracted in the same way, not used in the same way, and do not offer the same benefits.

Essential oils are extracted from aromatic plants, usually by steam distillation. Botanical oils, meanwhile, are obtained from oleaginous plants, kernels or seeds, which is why their texture is so much richer.

Some of these oils have firming and regenerating properties, making them ideal for caring for mature skin and preventing wrinkles.

In case you didn’t already know, at Absolution, we prefer to embrace aging rather than fight it. We don’t see facial oils as anti-wrinkle products. Instead, we consider them to be “pro-aging solutions” that will bring out the best of your beauty and support your skin through the years.

How can you incorporate anti-wrinkle oils into your beauty routine?

Before you do anything else, make sure you find an anti-wrinkle oil that is perfect for you. It should be made exclusively from natural and certified-organic ingredients, so it’s both effective and kind to your skin. Give preference to an organic facial oil for mature skin that’s been cold pressed, as this extraction method won’t remove any of its beneficial qualities.

When is the best age to start using a pro-aging facial oil?

 

You can start using face oils as soon as the first fine lines appear, so around the age of 25 to 30. As for how you apply it, there are different solutions. You could apply it on its own, massaging it into the skin, or add it to your moisturizing cream to boost its effects and make it more nourishing.

At Absolution, we’ve developed an oil that is absolutely unique and absolutely… addictive! Our Addiction oil is a true multi-tasker that cares for mature skin. It’s made with 26 active ingredients, which include Plum Oil, Jojoba Oil and Evening Primrose Oil, as well as Daisy and White Lily extracts.

Whatever the season and whatever your skin’s needs, you can use Addiction on its own or with a drop of Le Booster LIFT, preferably in the evening. In the day, combine La Crème du Temps with Le Booster LIFT. Our pro-aging solutions nourish the skin deep down and help to fight sagging while promoting firmness and elasticity.

Which anti-wrinkle oil will work best with your skin type?

As with any skincare product, your anti-wrinkle face oil has to suit your skin type. All botanical oils are rich in vitamins and offer both nourishing and repairing benefits, but each one has its own specific properties. If your complexion looks tired and dull, and lacks luminosity, consider using oils such as Carrot, Tomato, Raspberry or even Sea-Buckthorn.

Other oils, such as Sweet Almond and Flaxseed, are particularly suitable for very dry skin. If you’re looking for a pro-aging, firming face oil, put your trust in ArganMacadamia and Prickly Pear, all of which have anti-wrinkle properties.

As for blemish-prone and acne-prone skin, opt for oils with skin-regulating properties, such as Hazelnut,JojobaSesame and Nigella (also known as black seed oil). Last but not least, Avocado and Camellia oils are known for their excellent regenerating properties, making them ideal for reactive and damaged skin.

By now you’ll have understood that there’s a botanical oil for every skin type! Another way to help protect your skin against aging is to include a Gua Sha massage in your beauty ritual and to use a youth-boosting skincare product once a week, such as Le Masque Velours Repulpant.
