The Best Face Oils for Combination Skin
When it comes to combination skin, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. The key is to use oils that are packed with essential nutrients, fatty acids and antioxidants. For starters, try marula oils—they’re antibacterial and absorb into skin fast—and squalane oils—the smaller molecular size means they won’t clog pores while still giving you the hydration you really need. Here, a few of our favorite brands.
Acure The Essentials Marula Oil
This oil is rich in proteins and omega fatty acids. Plus, it doubles as a split end mender for all types of hair. (Two for the price of one? Sold!)
Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
Untouched by any fragrance, chemical or synthetic, this guy noticeably hydrates skin and reduces fine lines, wrinkles, redness and blotchiness. Sounds pretty badass, right?
Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Face Oil
Not only does this blue oil look great on any bathroom counter, but the lightweight, natural formula leaves skin feeling soft, balanced and prepped for makeup. Apply three to ten drops to cleansed and toned skin morning and night, or when you just want to smell extra pretty.
The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane
There’s nothing ordinary about this face oil, which prevents ongoing loss of hydration and can also be applied to hair to protect against heat damage. All at a fraction of the cost of its competitors, we might add.
