No matter what your age or skin type, oils are wonderful skin food. When you are young, your skin exudes a luminosity and is nicely plump due to the abundance of naturally occurring oils. As we age, your cell turnover declines and so does your skin's ability to produce oil.
A topical application of oils is an essential component of age-defying skincare. Oils act as a carrier for other key ingredients, as well as improving the function of the lipid barrier, which keeps the skin moisturized and hydrated.
