Which face oil is best suited to you?

Since starting up my YouTube channel just a few weeks ago, during our second lockdown, I have been asked this question so many times. So I thought I’d write a little blog to explain the benefits of the different plant-based oils.

I highly recommend using natural, plant-based oils on the face, especially if you use them frequently. Don’t use mineral oil! It’ll clog your pores and mostly likely cause breakouts in the skin. My all time favourite is Rosehip Seed oil, I love it! But that’s most likely because it’s well suited for my skin type. So be very mindful when going by someone else’s recommendation, as what suits them may not be best for you.

Each oil has a different molecule size, meaning some will penetrate further than others. If you have an oily skin, for example, you might want to choose an oil with a lighter texture that sits more on the surface.

If you have a dry skin, you will want something more nourishing that absorbs deeper.

Rosehip Seed Oil – packed full of vitamins & anti-oxidants – also known to help improve dark spots/patches on the skin and will balance out your complexion. Good for anti-ageing. It’s light but nourishing.

Coconut oil – fabulous for dry skin as it’s super nourishing. Has lots of fatty acids so it solidifies at room temperature. It’s anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial.

Argan Oil – packed full of Vitamin E. great for both hair and skin. It has a lighter texture so you may find if you’re skin is of combination type then this oil might suit you best. It’s anti-inflammatory and known for its healing and anti-ageing properties.

Olive oil – contains vitamins A D E K – so it’s a good all-rounder! However, choose a high quality Extra Virgin oil. It can be used for an oily skin but if you’re prone to acne, perhaps only use it occasionally.

So, to make things easier, I’ve listed the skin types below and named the most suitable natural oils alongside them:

Sensitive skin – Rosehip is your go-to.

Oily skins – I’d recommend Olive oil occasionally or try Moringa oil, something with a lighter texture.

Dry skin – Rosehip or Coconut oil.

Rosehip is better for mature skin as it helps with anti ageing.

Combination skin – Argan oil, Rosehip or Pomegranate

Best anti-ageing oils are Argan and Rosehip, in my opinion.

I prefer to use oils at night and love to massage my face with them. You only need a small amount, just enough so that you’re not dragging your skin. Leave the oils on afterwards if your skin is dry or dehydrated, otherwise I would remove the excess with a cleanser before going to bed.

I hope that clears up all of your answers. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions.

Love Taryn
