I mentioned Sarah Urie in my previous post. I you check out her instagram, you will notice that she sometimes promotes skincare product.
One of the product she promotes is Omega 3.6.9. from LiftedSkin. I visited LiftedSkin website and found out that Omega 3.6.9 costs $39.00. That’s expensive for me. However, I really fell into “Sarah Urie’s trap” (in a good way) so I still wanted to have facial serum or facial oil. I then bought Wardah pure olive oil.
Wardah pure olive oil is not 100% pure, though. I read the ingredients and it has fragrance so I can’t use it for cooking (okay, sorry). When I bought it, it cost Rp 25.000,00 (about $ 2 if I’m not mistaken) so it’s quite affordable.
The problem was, I had no idea how to use olive oil on face. Many sources say to use it for facial massage. Questions: How should I massage my face? Should I use only oil or with something else? How often should I massage my face? Some say to do facial massage before bedtime. Should I wash my face after massage or just let it be there and sleep then wash face after waking up? I know that last question sounds silly but still, please answer any of those question.
I “experiment” by mixing face moisturizer and olive oil then I use it to massage by following Annie Jaffrey’s youtube tutorial. I usually do it in the afternoon before nap. How long I wait to wash my face depends on my laziness. Sometimes I fall asleep for about 2 hours then wash my face after waking up. Is my “experiment” right?
Does it give me glow or twinkle on my skin? (Imagine twinkle on the skin) I don’t pay enough attention to that. However, it does make my skin smooth.
