It has been suggested that using oils on your skin can make the skin to become oily. Is this right or wrong?
Well – BOTH!
Yes, your skin will become oily if you use a heavy oil, or if you apply a lot of oil to your skin.
However, there are lightweight oils that you can apply to your skin which are rich in minerals, vitamins and nutrients that your skin will love.
Here are 4 naturals oils you can add to your skincare routine.
- VITAMIN E OIL – Vitamin E helps support the immune system, cell function, and skin health. It is an antioxidant, making it effective at combating the effects of free radicals produced by the metabolism of food and toxins in the environment. Vitamin E may also be beneficial at reducing UV damage to skin.
- ARGAN OIL – Argan oil is most commonly used as a skin moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin. With its high vitamin E and fatty acid content, Argan oil is the ideal product to give skin a natural boost. It absorbs easily and is non-greasy and non-irritating, which makes it a great natural moisturiser.
- JOJOBA OIL – Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory properties which help to tame chaffing and chapping, reduce redness caused by drying, ease the effects of eczema and rosacea, and keep skin calm and comfortable. The Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins in the Jojoba oil help in skin repair and damage control.
- AVOCADO OIL – Avocado oil contains a high percentage of Vitamin E, as well as potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients which can nourish and moisturize your skin. The oleic acid also promotes collagen production, which helps grow new skin. This accelerates the healing process, helping with issues like sunburn.
You can add one or all of these oils to your skin care routine. We do not recommend that you start using them all at once though. Also, we don’t recommend applying huge amounts of oils at once but rather, adding a small amount to your skincare routine.
Also, it is best to experiment with a product for at least 2 weeks to see the true effects of the oil on your skin.
