#BeautyMinute: Best Oils for Each Skin Type

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday. And although I have committed to publishing here, on certain days, I prioritized and took some time for myself. I took time to reflect on the past year and this new year ahead. But, today, we are sharing a light-hearted topic on #BeautyMinute, and it is all about the best oils for each skin type.

I have oily skin, so my natural thought process was I do not need face oils. It will only make me greasy, cause breakouts, and my skin will hate it. Those were, of course, thoughts with no supporting evidence or data to back them up. The truth is I need face oils, they do not make me greasy, and my skin adores them. 

Here are the best face oils for every skin type:

Oily 

  • Squalane
  • Evening Primrose oil
  • Hemp Seed Oil
  • Passionfruit Seed Oil
  • Rosehip Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Prickly Pear Seed Oil
  • Safflower Oil
  • Watermelon Seed Oil

Disclaimer: I would not say I like Jojoba as much as other people have praised it— t does nothing for my skin. 

Normal

  • Shea Butter
  • Grapeseed
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Argan Oil
  • Almond Oil

Combination 

  • Elderberry Oil
  • Almond Oil
  • Rosehip Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Prickly Pear Seed Oil

Dry

  • Almond Oil
  • Apricot Kernel Oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Carrot Seed Oil
  • Coconut Oil (Body)
  • Mango Seed Butter
  • Marula Oil
  • Moringa Oil
  • Neem Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Buckthorn Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Vitamin E

And there you have it. Do not be afraid to experiment with oils on your skin. It is essential to make sure you are using the best oil for your skin type, and you should use oils as the very last step in your skincare routine.

For example:

 On my face—I apply all of my skincare products, then apply oil to lock everything in. Or I apply Rosehip oil whenever I am derma planning. And grapeseed oil whenever I am using my gua sha tool.

I apply a serum, body lotion, then oil on my body. I also make sure my body is damp when I do all of this. In my 40s, my body has gotten drier, and oils seem to quench its thirst.

Comment below. Do you have a favorite face oil or body oil?
