Heavy oils can congest the skin and cause breakouts, which will definitely inflame and irritate existing acne conditions.

Now you may be wondering what oils to look for. It is important to know your skin and have a specific skin goal. From there you can choose the right oil blend. Here are a few oils we recommend and why.

 

Sunflower Seed Oil

There’s evidence that sunflower seed oil may help with skin barrier repair. Research also shows that it has anti-inflammatory effects and may help with wound healing.

 

Argan Oil

Argan oil is a popular skincare oil that can help with skin barrier repair. Studies suggest that it has anti-inflammatory and wound-healing effects. Topical application has also been shown to have an anti-aging effect on skin by improving skin elasticity.

 

Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip seed oil may help with skin barrier repair. There’s also evidence that it can help fight signs of aging and has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
