You hear the word multi-purpose and you instantly think, cleaning products. We know, us too. But we’re not talking cleaning house. We’re talking getting smart with the skin care products you already own. Being in a bind or two has taught us that skin care products can do more than just one trick. Skin care multi-taskers also give your wallet a break. Whether you are a full-time student, working professional, or on-the-go mom, here are our favorite face and body oil multi-taskers to help save you time and money.
Soften and tame your beard and keep the skin beneath soft: Healthy beards require moisture, and the longer they grow, the more natural oil they require. If your beard fails to obtain adequate moisture you are at risk of itch, coarse hairs and dry skin. The essential jojoba, grape and macadamia oils in our face oils are the best solution to giving both your skin and beard the moisture they need.
Tame pesky hair frizz and flyaways: If your hair starts to frizz up, a little face oil can help to smooth it down and keep flyaways at bay. Squeeze a small amount face oil into your palms, rub them together, and gently run your fingers through your hair to evenly distribute the oil and make it look polished.
Treat the ends of your hair: Avoid split ends by pouring a small amount of face oil into the palm of your hand and gently massage it into your hair, focusing on the ends and working your way up. Do not rinse out the oil. Jojoba oil is weightless and ideal for oily hair, while coconut oil is moisturizing and suitable for all hair types.
Keep your legs silky smooth: Regular shaving creams don’t always do a good job of keeping you skin moisturized. Try a face oil for an incredibly smooth and clean shave that will keep your legs looking shiny and smooth days later. Essential oils like jojoba, rice and apricot not only work as a shaving cream (better, actually), but also as a deep moisturizer — exactly what a shaving product should do.
