Oil Extracts For Your Skin Type!
Tea Tree: Very oily skin. This versatile oil has proven to be just as effective as benzoyl peroxide at treating acne. It has many antibacterial and antifungal properties, which helps treat pimples and keep them at bay.
Jojoba: Oily or Combination skin. As this oil imitates the skin’s natural sebum, it can help balance the body’s natural oil production. It is often accompanied by Vitamin E.
Grapeseed: Normal skin. Anti-inflammatory properties combined with antioxidants means this oil helps to smooth skin complexion and reduce blemishes.
Coconut: Dry skin. Dullness is diminished with this lovely hydrating oil. Not only does it moisturize dry skin, it smells wonderful too.
Olive: Very dry skin. This is a heavier oil, so this product works well for those who need a deep conditioning lotion for very dehydrated skin.
Almond: Sensitive skin. Long known to sooth irritation while softening skin, this oil works well for those who want to hydrate the skin while still feeling fresh. If you have nut allergies, you can try Soy Oil as well.
Mineral Oil: Most lotions that you find in the drug store are filled with mineral oil, a petroleum product. Mineral oil is cheap, odorless, doesn’t clog pores, and doesn’t expire, which means lotions that use it as a lubricant have a smooth texture and a long shelf life. However, mineral oil is not absorbed by the skin. Instead, it sits on top of the epidermis and makes the user feel greasy, which some interpret as moisturized. If you want to take care of your skin, look for natural oils such as those listed above on the ingredients list and stay as far away from mineral oil as you can.
