Oily Skin

 Many of us think, why should they use face oil for oily skin. This is a common misconception for almost every person have. There is mainly such face oil that controls the extra oil in your skin by regulating sebum production. If anyone suffering from oily skin they can apply jojoba oil or grapeseed oil. Jojoba oils are lightweight, nongreasy oil it holds the shiny and the natural glow of the skin. Whereas the grapeseed oil maintains a good balance in the skin, as a result of dry patches and oiliness conditions easily get resolved. Grapeseed oil gets easily absorbed by the skin.

Dry Skin

 In this type of skin, the sebaceous gland produces less sebum than normal causing dry skin. Dry skin can make your skin rough, dull even can lead to cracked skin. On the other hand, jojoba and grapeseed oil act as astringent. Therefore for dry skin, we need to find such oil that contains oleic acid. This type of fatty acid maintains the moisture in the skin and upholds the natural glow of the skin. Like Marula oil, this oil contains omega 3 fatty acids which keep the skin healthier.
Even almond oil can be used for dry skin because it is hydrating in nature and has Vitamin A which is highly needed for the growth of new skin cells.
Avocado oil can also be used for dry skin it contains Vitamin E, lecithin, and potassium. This oil not just only moisturizes your skin but even nourishes your skin. It easily gets absorbed in the body giving instant results.


This type of skin requires such oil which contains antibacterial properties. Like rosehip oil or pomegranate oil. Rosehip oil contains phenol which can treat scars and acne in the skin. Without blocking the pores it treats the pimples and acne by its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Pomegranate oil keeps the bacteria at bay and makes the skin look radiant.

Normal Skin

This type of skin is neither too dry nor too oily neither it suffers from any acne. For this type of skin, such oil must be selected which can provide nutrition for the skin. Argan oil contains Vitamin E that can treat and prevent wrinkles, dark spots, stretch marks. Retinol oil keeps the skin hydrated, balances the texture of the skin making your skin look more radiant and also has anti-aging properties. This is best for normal skin.

Sensitive Skin

Before applying any sort of oil on this type of skin patch test is a must. Apply a few drops of oils in your skin and leave it for a few hours if you didn’t feel any irritation or inflammation you can continue with that oil. For this type of skin Moringa Oil or Aloe vera oil can be used because these oils have Antioxidants, fatty acid, and anti-inflammatory properties. These oils are very lightweight and can be used for sensitive skin.
