You've probably heard the hype around facial oils for a while now - whether it's cleansing oils, moisturisers or night oils, they've been everywhere recently. But if you've already got oily skin, chances are you've been way too scared to go anywhere near 'em.
Well, fellow oily skinned friends - we think we've found the secret to banishing oily skin forever and it lies right within those facial oils. Let us explain:
Won't using a facial oil make my skin OILIER?
In a word, no. The problem people often make when they have oily skin, is to try and strip it away with a harsh acne busting cleanser. And while these might be great for some people, chances are - they're probably making you even oilier, because your skin ends up overcompensating for the harshness of the oil-stripping cleanser, producing twice as much.
Enter = facial oils on oily skin
By using a facial oil - whether it's a wash-off cleanser or sink-in moisturiser - your skin stops trying to produce so much oil in the first place. Plus, depending on which oil you use, there are loads of benefits from anti-inflammatory ingredients to anti-bacterial and spot-fighting ingredients to help soothe and clear your skin over time.
PLUS - oil cleansers are some of the absolute best we've tried for removing every scrap of makeup before bed, and they don't sting your eyeballs. HOLLAAA.
