Get Slick: The Best Face Oils to Try Now

If there’s one thing we should be allowed to be picky with, skincare routines are it. Often times, once we find products that make even the slightest improvement to our complexions, we become reluctant to venture out and try new ones. However, face oil is a hidden gem that’s worth a shot. There are many types, but most are a natural moisturizer, each with their own multitude of benefits that will work to keep your skin clear and healthy. You won’t regret recharging and replenishing your skin with these top-notch face oils.

Castor Oil

Castor oil has a long list of uses when it comes to skincare. It has been relied upon as a cure for skin troubles for years on end. From fading blemishes, to treating mild acne, to deep cleaning pores, to preventing blackheads and to serving as a remedy for dry skin, castor oil should be your ultimate go-to product for skincare.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil may be pleasantly light, but it works wonders for controlling oily skin. Do away with the struggle of trying to mask a shiny face by regularly applying a few drops of jojoba oil while your skin is still wet right after taking a shower to reduce excessive oiliness. Conversely, jojoba oil is great for moisturizing dry skin as well, keeping your skin hydrated for hours.

Rosehip Oil

Those with sensitive skin should try rosehip oil not only because it’s highly recommended by beauty experts, but also because it is able to brighten your skin, help with sun damage, correct dark spots and reduce scars. This vitamin-filled oil is easily absorbed and should be applied twice a day — in the morning and at night — to see the best results for a flawless complexion.

Coconut Oil

Get your hands on coconut oil, the secret behind many of the greatest beauty tricks. There’s never a time when this miraculous moisturizer is not in popular demand for those with all types of skin, from normal to combination. Its antibacterial and antifungal nature makes for the ultimate cleanser that you’ll never want to stop using once you test it out for yourself.

Tea Tree Oil

Acne-prone oily skin can be combated with tea tree oil. As one of the most dependable home remedies for skincare, products with tea tree oil can be utilized for effective spot treatment. Plus, it can also be used to remove makeup, and it’s super aromatic.

If you weren’t considering using oils for improving your skin before, you’re probably thinking about it now. However, before trying any of these out, make sure to research any side effects that may occur as a result of these not reacting well with your type of skin. Hopefully one of these options will end up being your new favorite face oil that you’ll soon incorporate into your daily skincare regimen.
