Should you use a Facial Oil on Oily Skin and how to ‘cocktail’ our Facial Oils for your own skin concerns

Should you use a Facial Oil on Oily Skin and how to ‘cocktail’ our Facial Oils for your own skin concerns

By: John Hamilton

We believe in the efficacy of our products, not only do we have thousands of five star reviews, we also put our money where our mouths are so we offer free sample packs to help new customers try out our skincare.

 As part of this, we ask people about their skin concerns and a question and concern that comes up again and again is if and why we recommend using an oil on oily skin.

 The problem is, lots of skincare companies create products that are full of synthetic ingredients and mineral and petroleum oils. People use these products in good faith  and they make spot prone skin even worse. Of course they do! These unnatural oils sit on the skin, closing pores and sealing in bacteria which creates an ideal breeding ground for more spots and breakouts.

 As counterintuitive as it sounds, certain oils can be hugely beneficial to oilier skin types prone to breakouts. Certain oils can actually help regulate sebum production and balance the skin as well as providing anti inflammatory and antimicrobial and antibacterial benefits

Which Facial oil is best for oilier skins and those prone to breakouts?

Balancing Facial Oil: ideal for oilier skins and hormonal breakouts. This expert formulation restores equilibrium to out of balance or congested skin types by supporting and stabilising oil production without blocking pores. A host of natural actives provide antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial support to unbalanced skin. Tea Tree Oil is antibacterial, anti-fungal and has antiviral properties, Lavender is an antiseptic antimicrobial and also calms the skin. Grapefruit Extract protects against free radical damage whilst combatting fine lines and dark patches - great if you suffer from post-inflammatory pigmentation. Peach Oil is rich in Vitamins A, E and EFA to promote cell regeneration whilst encouraging suppleness and elasticity. Grapeseed oil is high in antioxidants to optimise cellular function and also gently moisturises, firms and tightens the skin.

However, skin is complicated and many people have several skin concerns. One of our favourite tricks is to ‘cocktail’ our facial oils on the face to address specific concerns in a highly targeted way. It’s very simple to do, simply apply the targeted oils to the different parts of the face - sparingly though! These oils are potent, sometimes less is most definitely more! This way you are getting the benefits on the specific oils, exactly where you need them.

Our top Targeting Oils:

Immortal Oil - crammed with antioxidants and vitamins, this is the ultimate anti ager for collagen rebuilding, we've also seen great results with it fading acne scars and post inflammatory pigmentation.

For areas of sun damage and pigmentation, Revital Facial Oil will fade dark spots as well as softening fine lines and wrinkles

For skin texture, tone  and noticeable wrinkles, Holistic Facial Oil is an antioxidant  and vitamin packed alternative to synthetic vitamin A to stimulate and brighten the skin whilst supporting suppleness and optimum hydration.
