Should you use face oil if you have oily or blemish-prone skin?

by Lena S |

If you have oily or blemish-prone skin, chances are you avoid facial oils at all costs. It seems logical and the right course of action to avoid a product that creates another layer of oil.

But what if we told you that you can use a face oil for oily skin and that it can even help you?

It turns out that there are benefits to using a facial oil as long as you use it properly. It may even help prevent breakouts. As counterintuitive as that may sound, it makes perfect sense.

People with oily skin often think they can skip the moisturizer and stock up on skin care products that will dry out their oily skin. However, not hydrating can lead to dehydration, which in turn causes your skin to produce even more sebum to compensate for the lack of moisture. And so begins a vicious cycle...

This is where the benefits of facial oils come into play. Because oil is attracted to oil, it can balance skin and act as a moisturizer, creating a protective seal on your skin that keeps moisture in - and environmental aggressors out . However, it is important that you use the right type of oil.

Choose the right facial oil

The AN'DA Glow Serum is an excellent choice. It is a bestseller and receives rave reviews (over 300 already) from users. The formula is packed with antioxidants, omega acids and vitamins A, B and E known to heal and nourish the skin. The combination of oils has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, is non-comodogenic and helps regulate sebum production and control breakouts. And, as the name suggests, it makes your skin glow. You can read more about customer experiences with the ANDA Glow Serumhere .

Incorporate other proven ingredients into your routine

To get the most benefit, it's important that your skincare routine also includes other anti-blemish ingredients. Exfoliants such as AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), e.g. B. lactic acid, help control excess sebum production, fight blemishes and fade scars. It gently sloughs off dead skin cells and keeps your pores clean, reducing the risk of breakouts. The AN'DA Purifying Toner is the perfect complement to the Glow Serum. It contains lactic acid and is mild enough for daily use.

Cleansing and moisturizing your face twice a day with a gentle, non-drying cleanser is also very important. Because if you don't apply moisturizer after washing, your skin will produce more oil again because it's dehydrated, and that's exactly what you want to avoid. Look for moisturizers that contain niacinamide and squalane, as these are able to strongly regulate oil production.
