Fight Oil Slick with Oil

“I've got such an oily T-zone!”

“I have to blot my face an hour after putting on my foundation!”

“I can feel the slick of shine when I use an oily moisturizer!

Oily, shine, greasy. Whatever your skin’s ailment, the myths associated with oil-producing are a dime a dozen. One of the biggest misconceptions about oily and acne-prone skin is that it doesn't need moisture. But we’re here to say, the exact opposite holds true.

Those with oily skin frequently turn to products that strip skin of its natural oils. These ladies will seek out anything and everything oil-free, from sunscreen to foundation, from powders to blushes. But, it’s here that skin starts producing even more oil in a struggle to maintain a natural balance. By using nutrient-rich oils on oily skin, you send it a message that there is sufficient hydration, so the sebaceous glands can relax and stop the cycle of overproducing oil. Acne-prone skin responds well to oils that boast essential fatty acids or are vitamin-rich. Did you know that acneic skin has naturally low levels of fatty acids or oils? For you, seek out oils with a spiky freshness from omega-3 and omega-6 to make up for that deficiency.

Beauty oils. Not an illusion.
