Skincare trends are constantly changing and we now know that oils can be very beneficial for every skin type, even for oily skin. Oils can truly do wonders for your skin, from helping you fight acne and irritations to making your skin more radiant. When used regularly, they can be even more effective than some very expensive creams and serums. But you can’t just use any oil; you need to know which oil is best for your skin type.
Did you know that oils can help your skin produce less of its own oil? The logic behind is that it regulates sebum production, which makes your skin “think” it doesn’t have to produce any more oil. The best oils for this skin type are jojoba oil and grape seed oil.
You may think that dry skin can benefit from any oil, but if you have this skin type, you should look for oils that are rich with oleic acid, a type of fatty acid. We recommend almond oil.
Some oils, like wild rose oil, are great for acne-prone skin because they give skin much-needed nutrients and help it regulate sebum production on its own. This oil should be used in the evening, after your skin has absorbed moisturizer.
