Let’s face it (no pun intended), facial oils are all the rage—and for good reason! It used to be that the mere thought of putting oil on your face was enough to make your skin crawl. Now we know these plant-based oils are extremely helpful to wash away those long-held preconceptions by giving you a refreshing and radiant glow, naturally.
Oily Skin/Combo Skin: Jojoba Oil
If you suffer from oily skin than jojoba oil is for you. It can help regulate oil production by mimicking sebum, the oil secreted by your sebaceous glands, helping to balance your skin’s oil production. Jojoba oil can also help heal acne and other blemishes, providing all the moisture and hydration the skin needs.
All Skin Types: Argan Oil
Known as “liquid gold,” argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the Moroccan argan tree. It’s rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. Argan Oil helps fight lines and wrinkles and minimize scars and stretch marks all while restoring moisture and tone.
Dry Skin: Rosehip Seed Oil
Rosehip oil is extracted from the seeds of Rosa canina and is rich in Omega-6 essential fatty acids. This oil can be used to aid skin cell renewal, resulting in a replenished, healthy glow. Its amazing scar-healing properties makes it perfect for damaged skin, too!
All-Over Moisture: Coconut Oil
Due to coconut oil’s propensity for clogging pores, we definitely don’t recommend this for your face. The rest of your body, however, coconut oil is a must-have! It’s loaded with three fatty acids—capric, caprylic and lauric—that have antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Plus it’s easy on the wallet and can be used for a variety of skin ailments including everything from diaper rash to razor burn, cellulite and more!
