When to moisturise with emu oil
If you’ve always moisturised your face and body with creams and lotions, the idea of slathering oil from the top of your head to the tip of your toes might freak you out. Won’t it feel greasy? Clog your pores? Make you break out like a teenager? Fear not, brave beauty warrior! We have all the advice you need to harness the power of mega-moisturising emu oil for a radiant glow.
Why emu oil is so good for your skin
While most creams and oils only moisturise the top layer of the skin, emu oil has the capacity to sink deep into the epidermis and hydrate your skin from the inside out. It’s also brimming with nourishing omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, as well as potent antioxidants that protect your skin from free radical damage.
Not only can this incredible oil help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, it also transports anti-ageing ingredients from creams and serums deep into your skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties even soothe stubborn conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.
And you don’t need to worry about emu oil causing oily skin or breakouts – it’s quickly absorbed, non-greasy and non-comedogenic (which means it doesn’t block pores).
When to apply emu oil to your face
If you have oily or combination skin, you should apply emu oil to your face at night after cleansing. You can use it on its own or layer it over your night-time moisturiser for an added hydration boost.
Is your skin as dry as the Sahara? You’ll benefit from using a couple of drops of emu oil on top of your daytime moisturiser as well. Emu oil doesn’t cause sun sensitivity and some research has even shown that it might have a slight protective effect against UV damage.
When to apply emu oil to your body
Add a few drops of pure emu oil to your bath water or apply it to damp skin after your shower for enhanced absorption. You can also massage emu oil onto your hands and feet before bed to treat dry, cracked skin overnight. You’ll wake up feeling like you spent the night at the spa!
