4 Facial Oils That Are Actually Great for Greasy Skin
It sounds counterintuitive, but it’s true: Face oils can combat oily skin and even put acne to rest. They’re full of vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants that balance your complexion—including how much oil your skin produces—and keep it moisturized. And as it turns out, balance and moisture are the winning combo for clearing breakouts, too. So let’s finally forget the idea that all oil clogs pores. Here are four great facial oils for greasy skin to get you started.
Eve Lom Radiance Face Oil
This face oil debunks the myth that all oils are the same. It’s quick-absorbing (unlike many other facial oils on the market today) and is loaded with just the right amount of antioxidants to bring out your best skin. Bonus: It nourishes and hydrates skin for up to 12 hours after application.
Uma Deeply Clarifying Face Oil
This facial oil came to be when the founder’s family member had a bad breakout just weeks before her wedding. Turning bad for good, she created an oil with clove, lavender and tea tree to reduce excess oil and hydrate the skin. This luxurious oil is a bit pricey, but we think it’s worth every cent.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is best known for its ability to heal skin. Some medical studies show that it can kill bacteria, viruses and fungi, but it’s also great for fighting excess oil on your face and keeping acne under control. Try using it as a spot treatment for any problematic areas on your body that might need a bit more attention.
bareMinerals ETERNALIXIR Skin-Volumizing Oil Serum
This non-greasy blend is unlike anything we’ve seen before. It feels thick like oil, but quickly absorbs into your skin like a serum. Also, the calcium fortifies and enhances the skin’s moisture barrier, and a mix of evening primrose, antioxidant rose hip seed, and hydrating baobab oils replenish hydration.
