Your skin is so important to feeling and looking fabulous. Your face and neck is at the top of the list of importance. Taking care of your face and neck doesn’t have to be as difficult as it may seem. With the right oil, your face and neck will look glamorous in no time.
Makeup by Josephine artist Josephine Fusco in New York City loves Sundari face and neck oil. She says that Sundari has a collection of anti-aging products created from pure ingredients distilled from nature. She says that these facial oils are safe for all skin types and this brand specifically has oils for every skin type; these oils penetrate deep into the layers of the skin the same way a serum would. "I am a true advocate for beauty on a budget because not everyone can afford high end products," says Fusco. "But when it comes to oils and serums I feel higher end are best."
Dermatologist Michael Gold of Gold Skincare Center in Nashville, Tennessee says that the best oil for both face and neck is DHC facial cleansing oil. "It was the first of its kind to show that oils can actually remove dirt, oil and makeup and won’t irritate sensitive skin or even weigh down oily skin," says Dr. Gold. Although DHC isn’t available in drugstores, Dr. Gold says that it is an affordable line that you can purchase at spas and even online.
Vitamins can do so much for you inside and out. Sherri Jessee of Sherri Jessee Salon in Bristol, Virginia says to go with plain old vitamin E oil for your face and neck. She says that vitamin E is especially great for dry skin types. The oil offers relief with its penetrating, nourishing benefits and lightweight feel. "The oil can be gently massaged onto the face and neck before bedtime to moisturize and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles," says Jessee. She adds that if you’re using the oil straight from the source, you need only a mere few drops.
Dr. Gold recommends looking for ingredients that are oil absorbing, such as rice powder and kaolin and to stay away from rich ingredients like shea butter and jojoba oil. Skincare director and aesthetician Meg Hagar of Gotham Skincare in New York City recommends face and neck oils with sunflower or almond oil because they are both lightweight and won’t feel heavy on the skin. Also, she recommends aloe vera juice in a cleansing oil because after hydrating the skin, the aloe vera works to heal the skin and lock in moisture.
