Yes, you read that right. The best way to fight oily skin is using a face oil!

Oil might seem like the last thing you want to add to your regime if you suffer from oily skin. But the truth is, many skincare products use harsh ingredients that can strip away those naturally occurring oils in your skin.

As a result, people tend to use oil blotters and products with a gel-like consistency to prevent any more moisture from entering. These products are counterintuitive because may be causing your skin to overproduce oil in order to compensate for the moisture loss.

Using a face oil rather than a cream will trick your skin into thinking it’s producing enough moisture and offer your skin the nourishment it needs. It might take a bit of time for your skin to adjust to this new regime, with some minor breakouts along the way, but give it two weeks and your oil glands will thank you!
