The Best Facial Oil for Mature Skin Is Pure Magic & Worth the Splurge

For years, I was afraid to use oils, especially my face, but I have to admit that the Tin Man was onto something. Maybe face oil IS the secret to smoother skin.

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.
