When it comes to your face, the word “oil” sounds like something you’d like to avoid at all costs. But unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months (no judgement!), chances are you’ve heard at least something about beauty oils, the latest and greatest addition to the sounds-crazy-but-it’s-not realm of skincare products. The idea of adding oil to your face admittedly sounds a little repulsive — especially if you already have oily, acne-prone skin — but if you can get past the initial incredulity, you’ll be rewarded with a surprising treat for your skin! Skin oils are ultra-concentrated, so they can potentially spare you the trouble of stocking up on all those jumbo-sized moisturizers and masks you’ve convinced yourself you need. After all, these handy beautifying oils not only moisturize your skin, but more importantly help regulate your skin’s oil production for skin that’s not only healthy, but, well… more productive, too!
