Oils To Fight Greasy Skin: The Facts
Essential oils are packed with goodness and, if chosen correctly, can soothe and purify skin, as well as regulate sebum production and deal with unsightly open pores. Some of the best skin-friendly essential oils are oregano, lemongrass, lemon balm, citronella, rosemary, lavender, clove and chamomile. When blended with a vegetable oil, these scented miracle-workers can handle all that oily skin throws at us.
In one clean sweep they soothe, balance, purify and nourish oily skin.
Which is great news, as traditionally oily skin treatments tended to be harsh and abrasive - not the best idea for a skin type that actually needs loving care!
And the added plus?
The latest generation of face oils are ultra-light, velvety in texture and quickly penetrate skin without leaving a greasy film.
In the morning, add a couple of drops to your day cream (it makes a great make up primer) and gently tap it in using your fingertips. In the evening, gently press the oil onto your forehead, cheeks and neck, which craves just as much care as your face!
