Enriched with vitamins and antioxidants, these oils can treat a range of skin problems, from hyperpigmentation, to acne and dryness. It may seem counterintuitive to apply oil to greasy skin, but in reality these oils are necessary to keep sebum production in check. Oily skin is a result of an oil imbalance, which leads to clogged pores and breakouts. Facial oils contain essential fatty acids, which restore the natural balance of the skin, and keep it supple and hydrated.

Dry-skinned people should opt for products containing argan oil or jojoba oil, which are gentle and nourishing. Facial oils, which list pomegranate oil as their main ingredient, are the ideal solution for aging skin and dullness. Rose hip oil can be used to combat hyperpigmentation and scarring, while lavender oil is known for its anti-septic properties. Best of all, most of these oils are non-comedogenic i.e. they will not clog your pores!
