Should I Use Argan Oil If I Have Oily Skin?

November 29, 2016

Some people who have heard about the healing properties of argan oil aren’t sure if they can use it on an oily face. Given its name, it’s understandable there might be confusion and uncertainty about putting an oil on an oil-prone face. But, the facts about argan oil as a healing substance don’t change with complexion type. This oil, which comes from a nut, is a light and non-greasy oil that actually works with your skin to bring it to its natural state of balance. Argan oil for oily skin makes sense when you consider that the skin should naturally be producing oil to keep it hydrated.

Pure Argan Oil

Argan Oil for Oily Skin

What people don’t often realize is that the skin needs oil to keep it soft, supple, and hydrated. The body naturally produces the perfect amount of oil to help skin stay soft and pliable. But, environmental conditions, damaging and drying products, and lifestyle choices can throw off the skin’s natural balance causing it to produce too much. Argan oil is a natural plant oil that mimics the oil our skin produces in ideal conditions. It’s a gentle oil for the face that contains vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids, which are ingredients that help keep the skin in a state of harmony.

Essential Oils for Skin

Many essential oils are great for oily skin because they, like argan oil, gently hydrate the skin and keep it balanced. If you try to dry out any bit of oil you see on your face, you may set yourself up for an even oilier complexion when the epidermis becomes tight and natural oils get clogged under the surface. Hydrate daily with a soothing and healing essential oil, such as rosehip oil, and you’ll set yourself on a path to normal hydration and reduced overproduction of oil to compensate for dry skin. Typically, essential oils for dry skin are used with a carrier oil like argan oil, to dilute them and keep them from burning the skin.

The best face oil you can choose if you have oily skin is one that contains gentle oils that copy the oils your body would naturally produce if it were healthy. We carry a range of natural, gentle, and moisturizing face creams that contain argan oil for oily skin and healing essential oils. Use these creams in the morning and at night, and you’ll be on your way to beautiful glowing skin.
