I solemnly swear that I am a skincare junkie. Shout, “Girl, yes!” if you constantly find yourself in the same aisle surrounded by cleansers, moisturizers, face masks, and so much more. If so, then like me, you are always ready to try the next “big thing” because when your skin feels good and looks good, there is no stopping you. Personally, my skin has been feeling on cloud nine for the past couple of months and it’s all because of what has been taking up space on my shelves: oils. These au naturale babies are packed with benefits for any skin type. Looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines? Want more moisture day and night? Craving more glow? Hoping to feel calmer? Oils have you covered!
From an array of different kinds, including argan and jojoba to lavender and coconut, each oil type is super enriching, versatile, and ready to revive your skin with just a few drops. Slide your usual skincare products to the side and make room for these pretty-packaged oils that provide so much love for your skin.
You may be surprised to learn that oils aren’t solely for moisturizing and healing your skin. They can be used to cleanse and remove makeup as well! If you’re looking to try it out at home first, reach for coconut oil, which we all know can be used for a plethora of must-do’s, including cleansing. Just dampen your skin, smooth some coconut oil along it, and watch your makeup melt off like magic. If you want an oil facial cleanser packed with natural ingredients and multiple oils, reach for Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Oil, Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil, or Josie Maran’s Argan Cleansing Oil.
