It is problematic having oily skin. Acne pops up, when oil mixes with dead skin cells and other debris from dust or make-up to block pores and causes bacteria to grow. In other words, poor hygiene is the enemy, not oily skin. Oil keeps our skin younger and reduces the sign of aging.
I’ve always had oily and sensitive skin and wished that skin-care classes were available during my high-school years. Unfortunately, I learned to care for my skin the hard way — suffered from moderate to severe acne, which left unpleasant scars to my face. When I reached puberty and hormonal changes started kicking in, lots of pimples burst out of my skin. How would an innocent teenager know the basics of skin care? Hence, covering up traces of zits with make-up made everything far worst and created more damaged to my skin. Although, there are countless skin care products out there, but never worked or some, even made my skin worst.
How to keep your skin acne-free?
- Wash skin twice a day. Morning and night.
- Let your skin breathe. Try not to wear make-up every day. Pores clogged by makeup is one of the reasons acne and white/blackheads show up. If you do, however, choose natural products for less irritation.
- Know the right skin-care products such as cleanser, toner, moisturizer and face oil to use for your specific skin type.
Why use face oil?
According to research, “Plant oils are rich source of antioxidants and replenishing emollients but they’re not good sources of skin-restoring ingredients. Facial oils are helpful for keeping skin’s vital hydration locked in and they have incredible, instantaneous skin-smoothing properties. But as wonderful as facial oils are, they don’t replace many other essential ingredients for skin. Think of plant oil or a blend of plant oils as a booster to supplement your skin care routine.” In other words, face oil is more of an added support layer to your skin rather than the main leading part for your entire skin care regime. You can also look at moisturizer equals to ‘food’ and face oil equals to ‘vitamins’.
Face oil has saved my skin from aging faster than usual. I apply oil all over my face and neck day and night after moisturizer. Once you turned 26 years old, wrinkles will start appearing whether you like it or not. And so, keeping your skin well hydrated using ‘face oil’ will keep your skin looking well restored and younger.
The Best Face Oil for Oily/Combination Skin Type
Noni Glow Face Oil description;
“Noni Glow face oil is made with organic noni extract, rose-hip oil, pomegranate oil and seabuckthorn oil, which combine to create a rich source of antioxidants and essential fatty acids. The formula is designed to absorb quickly into dehydrated skin to smooth, nourish, and brighten while providing a natural glow. Skin feels softer, smoother, well-hydrated, and plumper, and the visible effects of sun damage and scarring appear diminished. The oil also assists in boosting natural radiance and creating a more even tone.”
One of my biggest idols is Miranda Kerr. She is a supermodel, a business woman, a mother and she’s over the age of 30 years old. Her skin is marvelous! I have seen her up-close in person and she is a real beauty. I’m sure she goes to do her beauty treatment regularly, but she’s always been open how she preserves her youthful look. Miranda released her own organic skin care line called Kora Organics, which I’m all about. Kora Organics only sell natural organic products. I have tried most of them and they work fantastic on my skin. This Noni Glow oil sure is miracle oil. It’s perfect for sensitive skin while keeping your skin well moisturized and hydrated. This cost $65, which is more costly than other face oil in the market. You can buy this face oil at Sephora or here. However, there is an alternative face oil you can use that cost less than the Noni Glow Face Oil which is the Seaberry Moisturizing face oil by Fresh.
Seaberry Face oil description;
“Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil is a precious blend of pure oils—seaberry, cranberry seed, camellia seed, grapeseed, and sweet almond—packed with nourishing omega to keep a youthful appearance. The lightweight formula absorbs quickly for a boost of vital moisture. Seaberry oil, also known as seabuckthorn oil, is a powerful antioxidant rich in moisturizing omegas 3, 6, 7, and 9, noted for protecting the skin from aging free radicals.* Cranberry seed oil, which is packed with omegas 3, 6, and 9 and vitamin E, maintains the skin’s elasticity and smoothness, and camellia seed oil, rich in omegas 6 and 9, helps to retain moisture.”
Seaberry Face Oil is amazing for your skin. Place 2 to 3 drops on your palm and rub them together, then pat all over face. I also like to put some on my under eye area to slow down the appearance of wrinkles. I have used this product for years. Amazingly, this 50 ml. bottle will last for 6 months or more, depending how much you use it. The retail cost of this bottle is $52 without tax. You can buy this product at Sephora, Amazon or in store.
If budget is an issue, you can also create your own anti-aging serum at home with this recipe. However, this recipe is only for dry skin. To learn more about DIY face cream go to The Nerdy Farm Wife for more recipes. Currently, I am still developing the perfect serum for oily or sensitive skin.
Which face oil is better than the other?
If I were to pick between the Seaberry Moisturizing Oil by Fresh and the Noni Glow Face Oil by Kora Organics, I would pick the Noni Glow face oil. I find that Rosehip Oil is a remarkable ingredient that works really well with my acne prone skin. The Seaberry Face Oil work incredible too, but not as good as the Noni Glow face oil. The moment you use Noni Glow face oil on your face, you’ll feel the difference how better-quality your skin has become.
