I've always been interested in incorporating a face oil into my routine but face oils can be just as terrifying as they are alluring. When the word 'oil' pops up into my head I immediately imagine grease and shine, two looks I'm definitely not going for when it comes to my face. However, after watching a few videos, specifically POPSUGAR Beauty's "Why Face Oils Benefit Any Skin Type, Even Oily" and Jaclyn Hill's "Favorite Skincare Products of 2013," and doing my own research I was sold.
What I learned about face oils is that they truly can benefit any skin type. Yes, even oily. How does that even make sense? Often times, skin becomes oily because it's dehydrated and as a response your skin end up over-producing oil. In a sense, by using face oils you are training your skin to stop over-producing and to begin producing oil at a normal rate. If you have normal or dry skin, a face oil will help to hydrate it and in most cases even better than your typical face moisturizer.
