How to use Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil and when
-Feb 18, Hannah Hargrave, Beauty -
The phrase cleanse, tone and moisturise has been drummed into our skincare psyche but so should using an oil. Here’s how to use Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil.
This all natural powerhouse is packed with 32 botanical oils and extracts which work together to balance and moisturise your skin keeping it supple and radiant. But what’s the best way to use it and when exactly should you be applying it?
While there’s no set way to use this divine smelling oil, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, we believe that a few drops massaged into skin that’s still wet after a shower is a heavenly way to both start and end any day.
Can I use facial oil morning and night?
You may think of an oil as being thick and greasy but this one is not. In fact it’s one of the new generation facial oils that’s as multi-tasking as a complete salon skincare treatment but so lightweight and easily absorbed that you can use it day and night. It can easily be worn under makeup for daytime – read on to see how you can work it into your makeup routine – and overnight it’ll get to work balancing your skin’s pH. Regular use results in dry patches being healed while breakouts diminish. This means that skin types aren’t something that we concern ourselves with here at Lumity – welcome to the future of skincare!
Work the oil into your skincare regime before taking your Lumity Day and Night Supplements.
Should I apply it before or after my moisturiser?
It actually doesn’t matter if you want to apply your Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil before or after your moisturiser. In fact the oil is so effective you can skip the moisturising step altogether if you want.
Does it work best on dry or damp skin?
The oil is best absorbed and the moisture locked in when it’s applied to damp skin. So either after cleansing or if you’ve just got out of the shower.
How much Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil should I use?
Everyone’s skin is different but as a general rule of thumb we suggest using about half a dropper of the oil morning and night.
Is there a preferred way to apply the oil?
A-list facialist Nichola Joss – who boasts an impressive list of celebrity clients including Meghan Markle and Margot Robbie – suggests a simple at home facial massage for the skin to completely absorb the oil and leave it looking dewy and fresh.
She also suggests taking Lumity Supplements along with using Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil to optimise your skin’s ability to repair, regenerate and replenish.
Can I wear the oil with my makeup?
Yes, you absolutely can. In fact many makeup artists swear by mixing foundation with a drop of Lumity Nutrients Facial Oil for a fresh look and some even apply it afterwards.
Stylist and fashion editor Donna McClulloch – best know as Sulky Doll – gave Lumity a great makeup tip. If you want to get the glow, use the oil as a highlighter. Dab one drop onto the flat of you hands and gently press the contours of your face. Think cheekbones, brow and nose.
Just remember that a little goes a long way.
Is Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil only for your face?
The oil works wonders on your face, neck and decollotage but since it’s all natural it’s safe to use on any parts of your body which might need a little TLC. A drop on the backs of your hands and massaged into your cuticles keep your hands looking youthful. It’s also great for smoothing flyaway hair and if you suffer from dry patches of skin on your body Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil can help hydrate them. At this time of year, try a few dabs on neglected feet and legs – you won’t regret it.
