Phoenix, Arizona (NAPSI) - Next-generation skin care formulations often contain oil. Some women may be nervous to try those, but they deliver superior skin-enhancing benefits.

“While some women fear that facial oil will make their skin oily,” says New York-based makeup artist Laramie Glen, “in fact, oils have been proven to absorb quickly into the skin, smoothing the surface without any trace of residue.”

The benefits of using oil are striking, when it’s in a treatment with multitasking ingredients that minimize beauty regimens while addressing a variety of skin care concerns such as hydration, tightening and radiance.

Explains Glen, “You just pat two or three drops of the serum onto your face and let them sit there for a moment before applying your makeup.”

One oil-based, multipurpose serum, Algenist’s Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil, redefines pores, smoothes texture, nourishes and hydrates the skin, and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
