Oils 101

Believe it or not, all skin types have a love for some types of oils – yes, even oily skin. Today I’m going to give you some insight as to what oils are right for each skin type. Please be mindful of the fact that everyone’s skin is different, so not all of the oils mentioned will work for your skin. Finding the right oil for your skin will take some time and experimentation, so just be patient.

Oils can penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water and other moisturizing goodness in, while keeping toxins and other bad stuff out. Some oils also help to fortify and strengthen our own natural skin barrier. Oils can shrink enlarged pores, calm rashes, banish zits, and reduce fine lines & wrinkles. They are great sources of antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Note:
Unfortunately, oils readily available at the grocery store can give you clogged, irritated pores, so consult with a dermatologist before trying just any oil.
