I’m obsessed with oil. Yes, the oil that I put on my face to keep it hydrated. I know what you’re thinking, “Oil for the face, yikes!” Believe me, when I say that there was a time when I absolutely dreaded the idea of putting oil on the face, which is why I picked products with an “oil-free” label on it. I feared oil thinking that it would clog my pores instantly transforming into a big fat walking blackhead. Breakouts bother me like nothing else in the world as my skin tends to get oily with time. Here’s a list of wonder oils that acne-induced desperation compelled me to try:
Did you know what’s common between the leading ladies of Hollywood including Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Kerr, and Kate Middleton? It’s flawless skin. These ladies use rosehip oil that penetrates deepest layers of the skin making it soft and supple. It reinvigorates cells and increases the production of collagen. Rich in omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin C, this oil helps heal scar tissues.
Here comes my favorite, castor oil. The thick texture of this oil might bother you, but it actually dries out on the even application on the face. Always use castor oil in combination with thinner oil for an ideal consistency. Packed with the goodness of proteins, minerals, and vitamins, this oil prevents skin breakout.
I look forward to bed time as I get to relieve my skin and facial muscles with jojoba oil. Light in consistency, this oil gets absorbed easily. Just apply it on your face evenly (preferably at bedtime) for clearer & younger looking skin.
Hemp seed oil
Tired of using multi-tasking products that promise to zap blackheads and close of open pores? Try hemp seed oil with 0 comedogenic properties that protect your skin from free radicals and improves elasticity. Its anti-inflammatory properties heal skin ailments like eczema and psoriasis. This oil is pretty dry so combine it with something rich like castor oil or jojoba oil.
Revitalize your skin with a dab of Tamanu oil that regenerates skin tissues by healing damaged skin. It’s perfect for repairing acne prone damaged skin with its anti-microbial properties. No other oil has anti- inflammatory properties stronger than this oil as it has rare lipid called calophyllolide.
