Beauty Tips Oil vs Moisturizer

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.
