Your ultimate guide to getting bright, glowing, zit-free skin over night. Seriously.
I’m willing to bet that right now, despite all of the glowing reviews you’ve seen on TV and in magazines, you don’t actually use a face oil. Maybe it’s because the idea of putting oil on, say, your acne-prone face seems certifiably insane (it isn’t), or maybe your skin is so sensitive you think you can’t use an oil (you can), or maybe you just think the whole concept of face oils is too confusing for your low-maintenance needs (it definitely is not).
Whatever the reason, I’m here to tell you that it’s probably a silly one, because face oil is the one product that can actually treat your skin issues, while giving you the bright, glowy, clear face of your dreams. And yes, every single skin type can use it (according to me, your derm, and your derm's derm). So to prove it to you—and to give you zero further excuses to forego an oil-filled life—I broke down the very best face oils for your oily, sensitive, dry, broken-out, and, yes, even your "normal" skin ahead.
Please get slathering immediately.
WHAT?! An oil for oily skin? It sounds weird, but the right oil can not only act as an astringent to rid your face of excess grease, but will also help stabilize and regulate your skin’s sebum production (i.e. your natural skin oil) to make you less oily overall.
Try applying your face oil at night (always as the last step of your skincare routine, since no other ingredients or products will be able to penetrate it) to reap the benefits while you sleep, without looking reflective during the day.
What to Use:
Not only is jojoba an incredibly lightweight and breathable oil (making it great for combination skin that still needs some moisture), but, because jojoba actually breaks down and dissolves sebum, it'll also help control your shine.
