Why I Use Oil On My Skin

Oils are good for all skin types. Many believe those with oily skin shouldn’t use oil but that’s a myth. It’s all about using the correct oil that suits your skin’s needs. I’m sharing some benefits of using oil in your skincare routine.

  1. Hydration: Both dry and oily skin types need to be hydrated. Oils work to soften and rejuvenate the skin.
  2. Oily Skin: Grapeseed oil and Jojoba oil are both good options for oily skin to moisturize while controlling shine.
  3. Dry Skin: Oils that are best for dry skin include Almond and Marula oil. Both are rich in moisture.
  4. Acne-Prone Skin: If used in moderation, Jojoba oil and Tea Tree oil can help with acne-prone skin.
  5. Hyperpigmentation: Tea Tree oil, Geranium oil and Chamomile oil can regulate sebum and moisture to reduce dark spots or discoloration.
  6. Anti-Aging: Argan oil and Grapeseed oil are known to reduce wrinkles.
  7. Glowing Skin: many feel using oil will result in oily looking or shiny skin. By using a few drops, you can achieve a more dewy and glowy look instead.
  8. Primer for Makeup: the hydration from oil works so smooth the skin, making it a great primer before applying makeup.
  9. Anti-Inflammatory: anti-inflammatory properties in certain oils help calm sensitive skin. Geranium oil and Argan oil help reduce irritation.
  10. Stretch Marks: When massaged into the skin, Castor oil and Almond oil can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
