My introduction into face oils was when I was 45yrs old. Prior to that I had very oily skin. Right at the age of 45 my skin changed from oily to dry. I did contribute this to my flight attendant career at the time and being in the different climates frequently. I remember my skin was so dry it was cracking around my mouth and peeling! I had to run to my Dermatologist and find out what was going on. I didn't know it was a result of dry skin, I thought I had some kind of infection because I would pick the flakes and they would turn red. My my.... when I found out the cold weather had caused all that skin damage, I was immediately put on face oils.
I wasn't introduced to just any face oils.... I was introduced to Huile, a dry oil that absorbs deeply into the skin penetrating the layers underneath causing them to produce my own oils. I'd never heard of this oil back then and my Dermatologist had her own concoction that I had to purchase. Huile slowly became a staple in my skin care regimen and I've been using it ever since.
Huile isn't a particular oil. It's a plant derivative that has been added with other ingredients to create a blend used in a variety of oils from anti-aging to skin softeners to hair care products. I've been collecting the different blends that contain Huile because I've seen the benefits first hand.
