Choosing a facial oil for dry skin

Tightness, redness, roughness… When you have dry skin, it’s so important to find the right skincare products to keep it comfortable every day.

Oils can be great for deeply nourishing and soothing the skin, restoring softness, and providing long-term protection.

Dry skin, dry face: causes and solutions


Dry skin is usually sensitive skin that has trouble holding in moisture, which then leads to dehydration. This dryness may be due to genetics or related to medication. The skin’s protective barriers may also have been weakened by using unsuitable cosmetic products, smoking, or by exposure to environmental aggressors such as UV rays.

It goes without saying that dry skin needs to be deeply hydrated, but that’s not all. It’s also important to strengthen the skin’s protective barriers, in order to prevent moisture from escaping. And botanical oils are perfect for that!

Argan oil to regenerate

The first step is to help the skin rebuild itself, so it remains hydrated. Several oils will do this effectively, particularly Argan oil, which delivers Vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids to skin cells. These nourishing elements help the skin to regenerate, while also working to fight the effects of aging.

Argan oil can be found in many of our products, such as La Crème du Soir, which works to restore the skin’s hydrolipidic film, but also helps to diminish the muscle contractions that are involved in the formation of wrinkles.

Rosehip oil to nourish


Rosehip oil is good to use if you have dry skin, as it contains polyunsaturated fatty acids that nourish the skin and fight dehydration.

This oil is one of the main ingredients in La Brume Systémique – our bi-phase toner and moisturizing mist that can be used any time of the day to hydrate and refresh the skin, while regenerating it too.

Coconut oil to improve suppleness

Coconut oil is also worth incorporating into a skincare routine for dry skin. Just like Argan oil and Rosehip oil, it helps the skin to regenerate, as it’s rich in vitamins.

This oil has excellent moisturizing and emollient properties, so it works to keep skin supple. That’s why it’s one of the main ingredients in our Le Baume Céleste – an oil-in-gel makeup remover designed to soothe sensitive and reactive skin, but also to nourish dry skin.

Sweet Almond oil to soothe


Finally, you can’t go wrong with Sweet Almond oil if you want a simple solution to really moisturize the skin. This oil is very pleasant to apply and is suitable for both dry and fragile skin as it promotes hydration while relieving itching.

You’ll find it in several Absolution products, including La Crème Gommante, which removes dead cells without damaging the skin and leaves it looking more radiant.
