4. Oils don’t strip down, they build up!
Many synthetic anti-aging products use abrasive compounds like retinols that strip the skin of its protective layer in a bid to reveal the “younger” skin underneath. Oils work differently. Instead of stripping down skin, oils nourish and renew the skin from deep within, which is better for mature skin over time. Since our skin thins and loses moisture as we age, using harsh, drying products may artificially brighten the complexion in the short run, but weakens the dermis as we age, making it prone to redness and injury. Using oils, on the other hand, delivers the goodness of nature 100% naturally into the pores, and gives rather than taking away from the skin. Oils build that look of robust skin, pore by pore, cell by cell! By the way, the “build-up” mechanism of oil is why traditional, wise sciences like Ayurveda prescribe oil massages for all babies!
