BEAUTY TIP No. 3 | Oil + Water

One of the biggest not-so-secret secrets of the beauty industry is a trick that will make your skin smoother than baby’s bottom. In most cases the rule is that oil and water do not necessarily mix but when it comes to skincare, this is the best recipe for your routine. Using a facial oil in combination with a toner or mist is the best way to ensure delivery of moisture and nutrients into the deeper layers of the skin. When mixing the oil and water together, it mimics the oil/water balance of our skin, allowing the oil to penetrate rather than sit on top of the skin’s surface, which can leave a feeling of residue.


  • Wash face with Bamboo Charcoal Soap for deep detoxifying cleanse
  • Use 3-5 drops of facial oil in the palm of your hand
  • Spray about 3-5 sprays of a facial mist or toner into the palm with oil
  • Blend together and massage into skin for at least 60 seconds
One of our favorite combos is our Orchid Oil mixed with Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner!
