Are we the only ones who feel it’s just the best when you find a product you love (its look, its feel, its scent) and then find out you can use your beloved new product in a variety of ways? Not only does it confirm your instincts about your investment, it also sparks happiness and joy. Well we’re all about happiness and joy, and you’ll find this is the case with one of the products in our skincare ritual lineup -- the 01 Luminous Face Oil. This golden hued beauty does much more than your average face oil, and today we want to walk you through 5 ways (hacks, if you will) to make the most of it beyond its value as a standalone product!
Hack 1: Use It To Boost Your Moisturizer
Oh yeah, Glow Town here we come! When you pair a few drops of the 01 Luminous Face Oil with your favorite moisturizer, the result is ah-mazing. We’re talking some serious radiance. The reason? You get all of the benefits of the antioxidant-rich ingredients like Calendula oil (which protects your skin from sun damage and pollution) while nourishing it with the added hydrating properties of your moisturizer. Win-win.
Hack 2: Add It To Foundation For A Smoother Finish
Have you ever had slightly dry skin then put on your foundation only to be greeted with a crepe-like complexion? Us too. Not so fun when it isn’t Halloween and aging in 25 seconds isn’t your end goal. Luckily, that can be a thing of the past when you add 10 Degrees Cooler face oils into the mix. With its ability to penetrate the skin’s barrier, the 01 Luminous Face Oil can deeply nourish your skin, allowing it to relax and soften. Plus, the presence of Apricot and Olive oils, help to rejuvenate and moisturize. The result? A satisfying, air-brushed finish.
Hack 3: It Makes An Excellent Makeup Remover
If you’re tired of having to replenish your supply of makeup remover monthly, then you’re going to love this use case. Since your skin’s mantle is naturally oily, and like-attracts-like, this face oil can help pull anything that shouldn’t normally be on your skin off of it. While this usually works in the case of dirt and grime, the same goes for a face full of makeup!
Here’s how you can incorporate the oil into your nightly routine: Apply a few drops to your fingertips, rub a bit to warm the oil, and then apply to your face. Rub it around your eyes to remove any eye makeup (being careful not to get it in the eyes themselves) or lips for lipstick. After that, proceed with cleansing as usual. When you’re finished, you’ll have a glowing, makeup-free look.
Hack 4: Create A Beautifying Clay Mask
If you’re in a pinch at home and need something to help clear, brighten, and rejuvenate your face, we have your answer. To create an extremely nourishing facial mask for dry skin, just add a few drops of our 01 Luminous Face Oil to some bentonite clay, apply, and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Wash it off to reveal a hydrated, renewed you in the mirror! Have combination skin? Add a dollop of yogurt to this mix!
Note: Make sure to mix the clay with wooden or other non-reactive tools. Metals can reduce the clarifying properties of the mask.
Hack 5: Create A Brightening Exfoliator
Nothing beats a good exfoliation session. Not only does treating your skin to a weekly exfoliation help to ensure a smooth complexion, but it is a great way to keep breakouts at bay. After all, acne is tied to clogged pores and clogged pores come from built up dead skin cells as well as dirt.
Luckily, though, it doesn’t have to be something you need to go out and buy. Which means no excuses!
To make a highly effective exfoliator with the 01 Luminous Face Oil, find either sea salt in your kitchen cabinet or granulated sugar. Add a few drops to 1 tablespoon and gently rub it around. When finished, rinse off with water or your cleanser. Voila! You are a picture of exfoliated cleanliness and acne’s worst nightmare.
