These days, there are so many cosmetics brands on the market that separating the good from the best face oils can be difficult. When picking out face oils, it helps to start with an understanding of your personal skin care needs, while also taking into account how this new product will work into your current lineup. In other words, what gaps are you filling and what are you hoping your skin gains?
Before you can start looking for a face oil, it’s important that you not only identify but also get to know your skin type. We are talking beyond the standard, oily, combination, and dry categories. For some, this may mean doing a bit of research or consulting a dermatologist to understand how different oils might help or harm your skin’s overall health.
