Admittedly, even the products that touted themselves as the best facial oil for mature skin didn’t have me sold at first—but believe me when I say that now I’m singing a different tune. Remember how the Tin Man squeaked out “Oil me!” in The Wizard of Oz, and when Dorothy and The Scarecrow administered a few drops, it worked like magic? Well, you can totally consider me the Tin Man. I took some time to get on board with this skin oil trend, but I have to admit that old pile of rust was onto something.
For years, I was afraid to use oils on my skin, especially my face, thinking (wrongly) that they would make me greasy, slimy, and possibly pimply. Now, I live for oils, slathering on products balanced with multiple wellness benefits, a veritable A to Z ingredient list from Argan to Zea Mays (corn) oils. My body loves me for it. My skin looks and feels smoother, less lined, and glow-ier. Oils have become my fountain of youth as my aging skin produces less natural lubrication.
The Best Facial Oil for Mature Skin: It’ll Cost Ya, but It’s Worth the Splurge
While I’ve found that coconut oil is fine as a daily go-to, I’ve become devoted to Angela Shore’s divine oils from her lovely Jiva-Apoha (or “soul-healing”) collection. Not only does her Sundara face oil make me feel (dare I say, look?) younger, but it smells delightful, imbued with rose, lavender, chamomile and jasmine, among other essential oils.
At $110 for a 15ml bottle, it certainly isn’t inexpensive, but it’s made with the highest quality ingredients, minimizes and fights lines, improves skin tone and texture, and you only need a tiny bit at a time. Plus Angela is a modern day shaman, an Ayurvedic healer with a deep understanding of holistic wellness; this oil is worth it.
