10 Best Face Oils For Different Types of Skin


People believe that oil couldn’t possibly help their skin, if oil is what they’re trying to get rid of in the first place!

Think of oils as a deep moisturizer, because that’s exactly what they are. Throughout our daily battle of washing our face, we lose a lot of our natural oils and fatty acids that make up a healthy skin.

By losing these, our skin tries to make up for the loss; hence overproducing oils which can lead to acne.

Therefore, it is extremely important to deeply moisturize our skin for a beautiful luminous skin.

Follow our list for the best-rated and most-loved face oils for different types of skin.

For Acne-prone Skin:

Ever heard some words that you use all the time, even though you don’t know what the heck they mean? I used salicylic acid since forever & knew NADA about it 🤷🏼‍♀️. My 🎁 to you? An ingredient spot 💡. . . Salicylic acid aka beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) = an oil loving acid. & remember oil loves oil, so breathe easier. BHAs attract oil & help unclog pores/decongestion. Helps w/ cell turnover (anti-aging & exfoliating). Made from Willow Bark, Sweet Birch, & basically 🌱s. FUN FACT: it’s the same stuff Aspirin is made of. It’s a good time to tell you that if you’re allergic to aspirin, check w/ your 👨🏻‍⚕️ before use; do the same if you’re 🤰 or 🤱 (as w/ use of any acids). . . @sundayriley UFO oil has 1.5% of that glorious, salicylic acid. Bonus: tea tree oil/black cumin seed oil (clears and decongests), Licorice root (brightens & helps w/ hyperpigmentation aka dark spots), & caprylic/capric triglyceride (fatty acids that help with hydration & keep moisture 🔒ed in your skin). . . I’ve repurchased over & over the past 2 years. THIS OIL WORKS 🏃🏼‍♀️💨! I’M TALKING YOU WILL SEE CHANGES IN DAYS & MORE GRADUALLY W/ CONSISTENT USE OVER TIME; JS 😏. Helps *tremendously* with scarring & active acne (my acne is not as severe, but I’ve given friends that do to test & it’s what they use now). It’s mattifying, not drying IMO); 👍🏻 under makeup b/c of this. Pores? I don’t know her. My pores are so teeny tiny after use (used to be larrgggeee and in charge). Has a green color (I like tho b/c I see where I missed). Absorbs super quickly; in the 🌝 I’m trying to survive, let alone wait for something to dry. . . Any skin type can use, esp acne prone & oily skin. I use 3-4 drops (play around to see what works for you) post double cleanse, after essence/toner & before moisturizer, in the 🌝 & 🌚. I place on my palms & finger tips & press into my skin with my palms &fingers. 🛑don’t forget to put around your chin; saves my hormonal acne! I only use now for spot treatments, when I notice larger pores/more congestion or on a pimple or ✌🏻. 🛸 is 40-80💸, but it lasts forever; currently testing a more cost friendlier product – keep you posted. Buy: @sephora @dermstore @macys
