7 Oils You Can Use on All of Your Skin ...


Oils for your skin are a bit different from your traditional lotion. Lotion is great for nourishing and moisturizing the skin all over your body, but oils ramp up the benefits by infusing your body with antioxidants and other nutrients that keep it looking young and fresh, no matter what. As always, if you have a skin disease or other condition, talk to your dermatologist before using any of these oils for your skin. Otherwise, mix and match your options to see which ones you love best.

Argan Oil

Argan Oil I’m putting this on top of my list of oils for your skin because it’s getting mega hype these days for its effectiveness. Many celebrities tout its benefits so you know it must be good. Argan oil comes from the nut of the argan tree and is loaded with vitamin E, fatty acids and antioxidants. These are all nutrients that play a big role in the health and appearance of your skin.


Olive Oil

Olive Oil One of my favorite exfoliators is a one-to-one mixture of olive oil and sugar. It turns out I’m on to something. Olive oil is full of antioxidants, which help fight cellular damage that can lead to skin cancer and a host of other issues. It’s also a great choice for combating dry, scaly skin. On top of all that, it’s easy to find and more affordable than many other oils on the market.


Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil I’m sure you’ve heard all about the benefits of coconut oil for your hair, but it’s also awesome for your skin. It removes make-up and can help fade dark spots on your skin with regular application. It’s also said to have a natural SPF factor so using it on your skin may offer a bit of additional sun safety. Buy a big container of coconut oil because you can also use it cook with in addition to moisturizing your hair and skin.


Grapeseed Oil

Grapeseed Oil You might wonder how oil can possibly benefit your facial skin if you already have oily skin. Well, it turns out grapeseed oil is the perfect choice for oily skin. It’s said to help regulate your skin’s oil production, so you can cut back on how slick your face feels throughout the day. It’s also loaded with vitamin C, which your skin needs to look and feel as healthy as it can.


Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil Tea tree oil is ideal if you have acne prone skin. It’s just as effective as harsher acne products, according to many experts, so you can get the results you crave without worry about damaging your skin. Tea tree oil is easy to find and simple to use, so you can’t go wrong by adding it to your skincare arsenal.


BlackCurrant Oil

BlackCurrant Oil Perhaps a bit lesser-known than other oils you can use on your skin, blackcurrant oil is still worth a mention. It’s perfect if you need to repair your skin. It works for sun damage, weather damage or even just irritation caused by facial treatments. Blackcurrants are anti-inflammatory and full of fatty acids, which combine to give you the ultra luxe treatment your damaged skin needs.


Marula Oil

Marula Oil This type of oil isn’t as easy to find as the others on my list, but I’m including for those of you with easily irritated skin. It’s very high in oleic acid, which translates to a soothing application you can count on to make your skin feel better in no time.

Do you like to put oil on your skin? I usually do so in the shower so I don’t have to worry about oil stained clothes or furniture, but if you rub it in well, you can wear oils anytime you want to. Which one will you try first?
