Oils? Yes Please!

1:16 AM

There are 4 big reasons why we're obsessed with face oils:
Truth 1: You can fight oil with oil! Applying oil to already oily skin can help manage pore-clogging sebum.
Truth 2: Curb signs of aging with oil. Oils smoothly deliver powerful antioxidants and other anti aging ingredients to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Truth 3: Glow, not grease with oil! Oil deliver moisture, boost radiance, and give skin that lit-from-within warmth.
Truth 4: Cleansing with oil is awesome. Washing with cleansing oil is one of the most delicate but effective ways to remove makeup and impurities from your skin. Don’t believe this? Refer to our previous post about oil cleansing down below!
Because of its greasy nature, oil is the black sheep of the beauty world. But just as there are good oils for your diet, the right natural oils can keep your skin moisturized, smooth, and glowing — and even fight breakouts — without any slimy residue. Don’t take it from us, take it from the skincare experts. Stroll through any beauty aisle and you'll spot skin, hair, and nail products made with— or created entirely from—naturally derived essential oils. Experts love 'em for their healing powers, and we're fans of how lightweight, yet hard working they are. (Not to mention how customized they can be to help battle your biggest issues based on skin type.) Not sure where to start? These are the best ones to look for on store shelves.

Argan Oil

Best for: Fine lines, dry skin, and dry hair
Argan oil is surrounded by more hype than anything, really. Extracted from the kernels found in the fruit of Moroccan argan trees, argan oil has high levels of vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. While it first claimed fame as a savior for dry, damaged hair, the oil also works wonders on the face and body. The fatty acids help our skin cells make healthy membranes, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy collagen.

Avocado Oil

Best for: Dry, sensitive, or irritated skin
This oil is high in vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, which helps proper cell function and decrease inflammation. Because it's such a rich emollient, avocado oil is ideal for those with dry, itchy, or aging skin.

Coconut Oil

Best for: Sensitive skin, eczema, dry hair
Coconut oil is great for those with super-sensitive skin - especially as a body moisturizer. Its fatty acids make it helpful for anyone with eczema, too. Additionally, research has shown that coconut oil restores dry hair. Its 12-carbon fatty acid structure allows it to penetrate the hair cuticle and help provide flexibility and strength.  Rub a small amount on dry ends, smooth a bit on your fingers to tame flyaways, or use it as a deep-conditioning treatment in the shower.

Flaxseed Oil

Best for: Irritated, sensitive skin, and conditions such as eczema and dermatitis
Packed with heart-healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, flaxseed is important for a healthy heart and complexion. You can mix the seeds in foods, or use the oil as a topical moisturizer. It has anti-inflammatory properties, and studies have shown that if taken daily, it can improve skin conditions such as eczema in almost no time at all.
