There are a lot of different oils that have many purposes. This post is going to be about one of my favorite skin care products, which just happens to be an oil. I have oily/dry combination skin which is sensitive to a few ingredients, so I have to be extra careful of what oil I am using. My favorite oils are the Boscia Tsubaki Oil and the Oils of Life Intensely Rvitalizing Essence Lotion from the Body Shop. This might be confusing putting oil on oily skin, howver it is worked extremely well for me. A while ago, I read something online that putting oil on oily skin can actually help balance out oil production in the long run. Certain oils are moisturizing and can add extra hydration. I learned by reading online, that when oily skin is too dehydrated, the body actually produces more oil to compensate for the lack of hydration. The thing that I love about the Tsubaki Oil, also known as pink oil because the bottle is pink, is how light it is and how well it absorbs into my skin. The tiniest bit goes a long way too. The Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Essence Lotion, is also really light and not heavy. The essence lotion is half oil and half water that mix together when the bottle is shaken. It helps prep my skin for my other skin care products, and also adds a bit of hydration as well.
There are two other oils that I have tried, the Josie Maran Argan Oil and the Oils of Life Revitalizing oil from the Body Shop. I normally use the Argan Oil on the ends of my hair, and I knew that it had many uses. I had a reaction to it the second I put it on my face, therefore I knew I couldn’t use it. I still use it on my hair though. When I tried the Oils of Life Revitalizng Oil, it took a few days for the reaction to occur. The ingredient in it that caused a reaction was rosemary essential oil, and it took a while to figure out this was causing my skin to breakout.
It is important to try different products to figure out what best works for your needs.
