5 must-try beautifying oils
These beautifying oils will leave skin and strands looking lustrous
Marie Claire Contributor / April 11 2016
There’s a fine line between glamorous and greasy. Here’s how to do oils the right way. Remember, it’s easier to add than subtract, so start with 1–2 drops to work into hair or skin, and add more if needed. Apply face and body oils on damp skin to trap water in the upper layers and prevent evaporation – you’ll get extra dewiness and deeper hydration. When using hair oil, focus on the mid-lengths and ends, then run any remaining product on your hands through the top.
