A Simple Way to Enhance Your Moisturizer

olive-oil-2002_300Looking for a way to give your moisturizer a little more oomph? Try a drop of oil.

Adding drop or two of grapeseed or coconut oil into your daily moisturizer will help boost hydration without clogging pores, says Jasmina Aganovic, an MIT-trained chemist and the CEO of Bona Clara, an all natural skincare and wellness company based in Boston. If you’re concerned about breaking out, however, you’ll still see a difference if you only try the trick during your nighttime regimen.

    Could I use Emu oil instead?

    A drop or two to the bottle or after I dispense?

    @val: Jasmina says yes! Emu oil is a healing oil and has a low comedogenecy rating.

    @esquie: After you dispense, and then apply as you normally would. Great question!
