Using face and body oils in your beauty routine may seem scary, especially for those with oily skin, but oils can be incredibly beneficial for all skin types. Using oils that work harmoniously with your skins’ natural oil production can leave you with a healthy, luminous glow.
Your Skin's Natural Oils
Our sebaceous glands produce our natural oil called sebum. Sebum helps to keep our hair and skin moisturized and healthy. Beyond that is also helps to maintain our skin’s flexibility, and acts as a barrier to protect the skin from environmental aging and bacterial or fungal infections.
Over Producing Oil
When your skin is stripped of its natural oils, which can be caused by using harsh cleansers and soaps, it can result in an overproduction of sebum. This can result in dry, tight and sensitive skin, but also clogged pores which lead to pimples, blemishes, and blackheads.
Heightened hormones can also place a role in increasing sebum production, which is why during adolescence, menstrual cycles, pregnancy or menopause you may experience oilier skin.
Other lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, stress, medications and lack of water intake can also affect sebum production.
Should I use Oils if I have Oily Skin?
Most people with oily or oily / combination skin are usually afraid of face oils or any oils, thinking that it would make their complexion worse, but this just isn’t the case. It’s all about sourcing the right oils. Lightweight oils actually help to rebalance natural oil production. Natural plant oils mimic our skins’ natural sebum, making them easy to absorb and therefore don’t clog or overload your skin. Natural plant oils also house antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe irritations or sensitive skin.
How Often to Use Oils
If you have dry skin, you might use an oil day and night. If you have combination or oily skin, you might want to use an oil once a day and preferably at night when our skin produces less sebum. It’s always best to test and see what works best for your skin.
The Benefits of Oils
Oils are rich sources of antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. They provide hydration and nourishment while protecting your skin’s barrier, keeping your skin looking smooth, plump and healthy.
Opt for Me Time
Applying oils can become a self-care ritual. Take a moment to massage the oils into your skin. Massaging can help to stimulate circulation to the area which in turn can increase cell turnover and the absorption of the oils into your skin.
