4 Ways To Use Our Bedouin Elixir Facial Oil
For her morning facial massage: “I love using the Bedouin Elixir Facial Oil every morning after I apply a vitamin C serum,” says Omayma. She also uses the oil to add slip to her skin for her daily massage; “I love to fight gravity with a facial massage every day to really wake up the skin. In my facial massage, I warm the oil up in my hands and press it into the skin. Then with one side at a time, I work in upward motions from the chin to the cheekbone, paying extra attention to the muscles in my face.”
During her weekly hammam: “It’s so important to me, to go *all out* at least once every week or two,” says Omayma – a woman after our own heart! She spills the deets on her go-to self-care ritual, “I tend to do an at-home Hammam with a full body and face steam, followed by an enzyme mask. I even have a big tub of olive soap from my mother’s olive farm in Marrakech and I follow up with a full-body scrub down. It’s so important to reinforce the moisture barrier of your skin after a full steam and scrubbing down. Finally, I use the Bedouin Elixir Facial Oil to lock in moisture and finish with a face massage once again.”
Erm, we’re totally taking notes! Omayma insists, “Having a full self-care moment every week is so important to me. Not only for my appearance but especially for my mood!” #Facts!
To prep for makeup: According to Omayma, the Bedouin Elixir Facial Oil is also ideal for makeup prep. She explains, “As a makeup artist, my “thing” has always been getting the perfect amount of dewy skin, without too much shine. Before I made The Bedouin Elixir Facial Oil, I would be constantly mixing and blending different oils and making my own concoctions to get the right kind of glow. I found that with so many, they wouldn’t absorb fully, or would leave a residue, or become too greasy throughout the day on different complexions. I worked really hard in the formulation process to create this product so it soaked in quickly, leaving your skin nourished and softened, and with the right amount of glow, but not letting your makeup slide off your face.” So basically our dream oil!
Omayma spills the deets on her skincare prep for dewy makeup: “To prep models and actors’ skin, after cleansing and toning, I use The Bedouin Elixir Facial Oil and go in with my desired foundation. I really love using a little of the Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer, $30, and blending that wherever necessary to keep a minimalist look. Being such a versatile product, if you’re on the drier side, you can mix it into your moisturizer or foundation to lock your hydration in further as well.”
At nighttime: Omayma says, “I love using The Bedouin Elixir as part of my nighttime routine, in addition to my morning routine, when my skin is stressed or just needs some extra love.” She explains that she likes to use it as her final step after serums and moisturizes, “I take a few drops and press it into the skin to lock in all the benefits and allow even more work to be done as my skin metabolizes the magic I’ve set to work.”
She adds, “The natural aroma of The Bedouin Elixir Facial Oil is also magical. Calming Moroccan tansy with soft notes of jasmine, rose, and neroli gives the perfect herbal-floral balance. These are all botanicals that take me straight back to my mother’s farm in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, and I love it. The first thing people tell me is how much they love the smell and how it instantly calms their senses.” We can vouch for Omayma on this one; it smells like walking into a luxury spa.
Our verdict: We’ve been using this oil religiously every morning and night for weeks and we’re low-key obsessed. It leaves our skin feeling super soft with the most radiant glow that’s already bagged us with tons of compliments. Our skin is plump, supple, and firm. We also love the slight cooling sensation that occurs when you apply it to your skin – it’s kinda addictive!
