More Oils for Oily Skin, Please


I know, I know. If you have oily skin, the last skin care product you would consider for your face is anything oil. And you would run back to your go-to harsh, stripping products to make your face feel tighter and firmer because tight feels right, and oil-free means beauty and confidence.

We're so busy fighting acne and oil that we often forget looking for a permanent solution. I bet you haven't even asked why your face produces so much oil. Well for a starter, the main reasons behind our skin condition are hormones and genes. Secondary of which, are stress and environmental factors.

But that doesn't mean we should throw in the towel and give up our hopes of achieving that dream shine-free complexion. Truth is, there's a permanent solution to your oily, acne-prone skin and it's plain simple: Stop being too hard and harsh on your skin! Oil is not the enemy.

If your skin produces excess oil, it's likely because it's compensating for the oils we removed from our skin!

And when it happens, we're making it prone to acne and break-outs. Ouch! Contrary to common belief, using facial oils can fix the problem.

While oils get a bad rap for oily, acne-prone skin, truth is our skin loves oil. It produces sebum which acts as a natural moisturizer for our face. And when we use products that are too harsh, even these beneficial oils get stripped off and that's when skin issues arises.

So next time we're tempted to reach for an oil blotting paper, let's consider oils as an option. Here's more reason to convince you to try:

"Natural face oils can actually help dissolve the excess sebum and grease that builds up on the surface of your skin"

Like-dissolves-like. Applying oil to the skin can actually help reduce the skin’s own production of oil. And since acne and zit is no less than oil mixed with bacteria, facial oil can help breakup this gunk and clear the pore.

Face oils can also help balance your complexion

Women's Health

With the antioxidants present in facial oils, it will not only help regulate your sebum production, but also soothe and heal inflammation which will result to brighter complexion and less breakouts which goes to show that ....

"Oils can be your saviour when you suffer from breakouts or acne"


Oils are naturally teeming with antioxidants which are anti-infammatory, anti-bacterial and soothing. With such helpful components present, oils make a perfect skin care staple to fight acne and break-outs.


Although facial oils are packed with good-for-you stuff, not all of them are right for you. Some might induce break outs, but with the right kind, even the most blemish-prone complexion can be transformed.

So Say Goodbye to Harsh Astringents, Harsh scrubs, and Oil Blotting Papers and incorporate these oils instead. Naturally clear an clean skin is just a tab away.
