How to Choose the Right Oil for Your Skin

How to Choose the Right Oil for Your Skin


Did you know that your skin’s best friend could be a natural oil?  Perhaps, you are under the impression that a light coat of oil applied to your clean face will do more to clog your pores than effectively moisturize your skin, especially if you have an oily complexion. On the other hand, many people around the world taking a holistic approach to skin care might disagree with you, knowing the beauty value of using these oils to best seal in moisture.  Here is how to choose the right oil for your skin regardless of its type.

Another wonderful advantage is that you can use natural oils to take off your makeup.  You don’t put them directly to a cotton ball.  Instead, you wet a few cotton pads and add a few drops of one
like jojoba oil, which is universal for all and gentle enough to take off even regular eye makeup (not the waterproof).  Afterwards, you finish cleaning the face by rinsing whatever with cool water to close the pores.

The secret to using natural oil is finding the right one for your skin type.  Once you know the best oils suited to your needs, you will notice your complexion will gradually show a new radiance, the
longer you keep nourishing it in this way.  Below I made a list of the ones that can do you the most good.


Best Natural Oils for Dry Skin:

extra virgin olive oil
jojoba oil
sweet almond oil
apricot seed oil
avocado oil
peach kernel oil


Best Natural Oils for Normal to Oily Skin:

jojoba oil
sesame oil
safflower oil
corn oil
sunflower oil


Please do try natural oils and be patient because those results may come faster for some than others, depending on the individual.  You may also notice less self-induced skin sensitivity from chemicals that may have been irritating your skin to cause complexion problems. However, improvement in your skin will come, especially now that you know how to choose the right oil.
