RE: What do you wish you’ve learned about skincare earlier than you did?

That oil isn't evil, and there are a lot of kinds that don't feel horrible and greasy.

So far: sunflower seed and grapeseed oil just sink right into my face. Particularly noticeable in the very rich All Salve from Fat and the Moon, which is sunflower and beeswax based. I can use it everywhere on my face except my forehead even though its basically a chap stick/skin barrier. Jojoba oil on it's own also absorbs well but changes the texture of my skin under makeup more so I use it at night.

I should try sunflower seed oil on my face. I use it for body and it works brilliantly. It has a lot of linoleic acid in it, and that’s why it’s so good for skin barrier. It is even used to support the skin of preterm infants 👶
