Are there any benefits to using oil vs moisturizer on the skin? Can they be used together and if so how do you layer them? As an aesthetician, this is a question I get asked a lot.
The simple answer is that oils are kind of like a superfood for your skin. They are very concentrated and therefore more active than a basic moisturizer. Due to the small molecular structure of essential oils they can also penetrate the skin more effectively. I think of a face oil much like a serum. It can be used alone or layered with a moisturizer. You can use the face oil underneath the moisturizer or if you want to boost the efficacy of an anti-aging product, apply it on top.
