Best Time to Use

Your skins natural oil production follows a daily cycle, where skin is oiliest at midday and oil production is at its lowest in the evening, just before bedtime. Because of this, oils are best used when they are most easily absorbed which is just before bedtime. An added benefit of applying oils at night is that skin cell repair and regeneration is at its highest between the hours of 11pm and 4am, so your oil will be in use when your skin needs it most.

If you have dry skin natural oil production is lower, so your skin would benefit from the addition of a few drops of oil into your morning routine to help improve the condition of your skin.
