Using Facial Oil: How To Get the Most Out of Your Oils

November 26, 2020

Clearly, we adore oils here at Baja Basics!

We’re talking pure plant-based oils, jam-packed in nutrients to feed your skin with everything it needs, and nothing it doesn’t!

Of course, many people with troubled skin still shy away from oils for fear of them making the issue worse, but if you’re using the right type of oil then trust us, your skin will only start to improve!

In this article we wanted to highlight just 3 of our beautiful, signature oils, share with you which skin types will benefit the most from them as well as show you just how you can make sure you’re getting the most out of every drop!

Jojoba Oil

This oil most closely resembles your skin’s own natural sebum, making it a versatile oil that all skin types will instantly crush on!

Jojoba oil is quickly absorbed into the pores, leaving behind no greasy residue, just soft, silky, happy skin.

There are so many ways to get the most out of your Jojoba Oil! You can use it as a serum on your complexion to help balance your skin. I always recommend applying an oil to skin that is slightly damp for optimal absorption. 

Our beautiful Rose Water is just the one for the job! Give your skin a few spritzes of this gorgeous elixir and before it is fully absorbed, use your fingertips to press and then massage our Jojoba oil into your skin in gentle upward strokes. 

You could also add a few drops of Jojoba to a clean body lotion for a decadent moisturizing experience or at night to help melt your makeup away without stripping your skin of its natural oils. 

A little on split ends can help to instantly transform your locks from frizzled to fresh, and guys love it on their beards too! Also try a little to help repair dry cuticles in a jiffy! 

Jojoba oil also works wonderfully as a carrier oil for all your favorite essential oils!


Rosehip Oil

If you’re looking to add a deep burst of loving hydration to your skin then you need some rosehip oil in your life!

It’s rich in Vitamin A and fatty acids to nourish and replenish parched skin while its anti-inflammatory properties help to fade acne scars with regular use. 

At night, after applying your Rose water with a cotton ball or simply spritzing directly all over your skin, use your fingertips to press and massage our Rosehip Oil into your skin, always moving in slow, gentle upward strokes.

Wake up to brighter, more luminous skin!


Prickly Pear Oil

Combination and oily skin love this oil thanks to its ability to destroy bacteria that may contribute to acne breakouts giving your skin some much needed relief!

But mature skin types love it just as much thanks to its rich array of antioxidants and amino acids that help to stimulate collagen production and improve elasticity for skin that is as smooth as it is supple, hallelujah!

Use it on your face after applying rose water on add a few drops to a clean body lotion for an all over nutrient burst! 

Use it as a leave-in conditioner for dry, brittle hair, makeup remover, beard oil, massage oil and a carrier for your favorite essential oils!


We cannot wait for you to start including this dreamy trio in your daily ritual! Beautiful skin is in your near future!
