“Less is more” is a way of life, and we’re here for it. Not only is it better for the environment; it’s better for your skin. We’ve researched, tested, and researched some more to find the five best nutrient-rich oils to create our All-Over Oil and bring as much versatility as possible to a single product.
Ready to try skinimalism? Here’s how to use our All-Over Oil 9 ways:
- Oil Cleanser
- Hair Treatment
- Hair Styling: Pre-Treatment or Finishing
- Get Mixing: Foundation, Moisturizer, or Serum
- Dry Patches
- Face, Neck, and Shoulder Massage
Use it as the final step in your beauty routine to lock in moisture. If you’re using our Vitamin Sea Essence or All-Over Skin Dew, then there’s no need for a moisturizer – you can just apply the All-Over Oil as the final step after either or both of these products. Add a few drops to the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, and gently pat or massage it onto your face.
The trick with getting the most out of a body oil is applying it right after you get out of the shower while your skin is still slightly damp. Let your body air dry or pat it gently with a towel. Also, pregnancy safe for those precious baby bellies.
Pro Tip: Don’t forget to massage around your cuticles and nails for an instant manicure look.
Oil cleansing is an easy and effective way to remove your makeup. Some people swear by it and only oil cleanse (with or without makeup). Start by gently massaging the oil into the skin for two to three minutes and then using a washcloth soaked in warm water to remove the oil.
Pro Tip: The warm washcloth can be made a little hotter – this way, it makes you feel like you’re giving yourself a high-end beauty treatment.
You can use the All-Over Oil as a hair treatment to help with hair growth and overall scalp health. Apply the oil to your scalp and massage using your fingers in a circular motion for 10-15 mins. Leave on for at least 30 mins before washing.
Pro Tip: We love doing this as a nighttime ritual and then washing it out in the morning. Repeat this once or twice weekly and start see results within 90-120 days.
Hair Styling: Pre-Treatment or Finishing
Apply a few drops into the palms of your hands and smooth onto wet or dry locks from mid-length to ends to take frizz and flyaway. A little goes a long way when using it as a pre-treatment or finishing.
Pro Tip: Our bearded friends, lovers, and coworkers can also enjoy our All-Over Oil as a beard oil.
Get Mixing: Foundation, Moisturizer, or Serum
Get that extra umph by mixing the oil in with your foundation for the ultimate glow hack. If you don’t have time for a long ritual, then combine your products together (serum or moisturizer with the oil) and get slathering.
Have a pesky dry patch? An oil alone will not combat dry skin, as you need something that will penetrate deeper, but you do need the oil to lock in the moisture for it to heal. Apply the All-Over Skin Dew first, and then lock it in with the All-Over Oil. Repeat this daily, as needed.
Face, Neck, and Shoulder Massage
Add a few extra drops, more than your usual amount, to your face and neck, and then use it with your gua sha to give yourself a relaxing face and neck massage. Don’t have a gua sha? That’s okay – your hands and fingers work just as well! Better yet, add a few drops to your shoulders and recruit your partner.
Add a few drops to your bath water to soften skin while you soak away.
