How to choose the right face oil?
There are several factors to consider when choosing the best, natural face oils. It is very important to consider your skin type. Some face oils are perfect for oily, acne prone skin but others are detrimental to this skin type. Here are some of the pros and cons of various face oils available:
1. Rosehip Oil
Rosehip oil is high in vitamin C and a number of essential fatty acids which help to promote the production of collagen and cell turnover which helps to reduce the formation of wrinkles. It is a proven treatment for scars, helping to reduce their appearance.
Rosehip Oil is suitable for normal-dry skin types. It is also beneficial for helping to minimise eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis symptoms. Rosehip Oil is not recommended for oily skin or acne-prone skin as it can aggravate the condition. Rosehip oil is only to be applied at night as the high vitamin C content may make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
2. Jojoba Oil
Perfect for all skin types but particularly beneficial for oily skin types. This is because it mimics sebum which is the natural oil our body produces. When Jojoba Oil is applied to the skin, it helps to regulate sebum production. It can either reduce or increase your skin's natural oil production accordingly. For this reason, it is suitable for oily, normal and dry skin types.
3. Argan Oil
Argan Oil has been heralded as 'liquid gold' by the personal care industry due to its amazing benefits to primarily hair as well as skin and nails. Argan oil is rich in a range of essential fatty acids, vitamin E and antioxidants which, when applied to the skin help to slow the signs of ageing. The chemical composition of the oil, however, allows it to penetrate completely into the hair shaft, aiding in the repair and strengthening of hair. This in turn leaves hair silky and looking glossy, not oily. Argan Oil is recommended for dry and normal skin types.
