Facial Oils Fight Oily Skin

As counterintuitive as it sounds, facial oils can actually balance an oily complexion. Like many anti-acne products, many oils also contain anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and soothing compounds, great for calming breakouts and balancing skin. However, you can’t just use any oil. The key to using oils and oil-based cleansers and moisturizers is ensuring they are non-comedogenic (non-clogging) oils.

So, first things first: How does oil combat oil? Having oily skin means your skin produces excess natural oil as a defense to balance out the loss of moisture and hydration of your skin. By using an oil or oil-based product, the oil attracts the natural oil, and can dissolve sebum, grease, or makeup without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Therefore, it retextures and resurfaces your skin, unclogging oily pores and balancing out the natural defense.

Simply put, the oil you buy or oil-based product you use breaks up the dirt and oil on your skin without stripping away its natural moisture barrier. The moisture barrier is often stripped when using harsh products and soaps. When stripped away, your body reacts by overproducing oil to make up for what is lost—often leading to a never-ending cycle of dry and oily skin.

Which kinds of oils are non-comedogenic? There are many types of oils that are used for different treatments. However, strictly discussing the balancing of oily skin, here is a list of ingredients you should look for in a skincare product:

  • Sunflower Seed Oil
  • Safflower Seed Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Rosehip Seed Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Argan Oil
  • Jojoba Botanical Oil
  • Hemp Seed Oil
  • Sea Buckthorn Oil
  • Pomegranate Seed Oil

TIP: When researching what oils are non-comedogenic, you should know there’s a scale used across the beauty industry. Each oil has a rating of zero through five. If an oil is deemed a zero on the scale, it is 100-percent non-comedogenic. The higher the number, the more likely it will clog your pores.
