Welke olie voor je gezicht

1. Oily skin

It sounds contradictory, but the right oil can not only work as a miracle cure for removing excess fat from your face. Oil will also help stabilize and regulate your skin's sebum production, the skin's natural oil. This will make your oily skin less oily in general. Natural skin oil also no longer clogs pores, because the oil has a light texture. This makes the skin feel nice and nourished.

Use natural facial oil on oily skin as the last step in the skincare routine. This way you keep the moisture in your skin. When you use a moisturizer for oily skin, it is generally lightweight and oil-free. So you want these ingredients to be absorbed into the skin first to avoid dealing with clogged pores. You can then add a protective layer of oil into your moisturizer to prevent water loss." 

1.1 Which oil to use for oily skin

1.1.1 Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil is an incredibly lightweight and breathable oil. The oil is great for combination skin that still needs some moisture. Because jojoba dissolves excess sebum production, it also helps control your shine. A real must-have in your skincare routine if treating oily skin is your goal.

2. Dry skin

You would think that any facial oil would automatically be a real must-have in your skincare routine for dry skin. Unfortunately, you cannot use all types of oil for your skin if it is sensitive. Some vegetable oils are naturally more astringent and lighter than others. For example, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil and pomegranate oil are dry oils. For dry skin, you want to use a rich oil with a good dose of unsaturated fatty acids. For example, oleic acid helps care for the skin, retain moisture and reduce irritation due to dryness.

Mix 3-5 drops of oil with your night cream and apply to both the face and neck. You can also spread your moisturizer to create a protective barrier to prevent dry air from stripping the moisture from the skin.

3. Acne-prone skin

The key to reducing your breakouts is to add natural facial oils to your skincare routine. Most acne treatments on the market are filled with irritating ingredients that strip the skin of natural oils. If your skin is dry and inflamed, it produces excessive sebum. Excessive sebum production leads to pimples and blackheads. However, acne-safe facial oils work to nourish your skin. Your body can heal the pimples you have without causing more.

Add a special oil for acne skin in the last step of your skincare routine. Try a patch test on the most acne-prone area of ​​your face first. This is the most reactive spot and therefore the most accurate. Do this for a week to see what happens. If your skin doesn't break out, massage a few drops of oil onto your skin at night at the end of your skincare routine.

Castor olie

Castor oil is also called castor oil. This versatile powerhouse is at home in almost all markets. Castor oil stimulates hair growth in, for example, the eyelashes and eyebrows. Our castor is packed with omega9 fatty acids and is therefore a good way to care for sensitive skin. Because the oil has a cleansing effect, it clears the skin of pores. Due to the low molecular mass in the oil, it penetrates deep into the skin and has a bactericidal effect. For this reason, castor oil is a good remedy against (mild) acne and gives dry skin and sensitive skin a fresh tint.

4. Normal skin

If you do not have oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin or acne, you most likely have normal skin. That means you can use a carrier oil in your skincare routine without worrying about clogged pores and irritation or dryness.

Normal skin is naturally less dry. So less oil is needed compared to dry skin. Try mixing 2-3 drops of oil into your night cream. A good natural facial oil protects your skin and provides a healthy appearance.

If you have sensitive skin, the best facial oil is one that specifically works to improve your skin barrier. And that means finding a formula that ensures that the skin is irritated as little as possible. An oil with absolutely no essential oils that tend to irritate sensitive skin.

Whichever oil you choose, test it first with a patch test and wait 24 hours to check for a reaction. If your skin seems calm, you can massage the oil in the morning and/or evening as the last step of your skincare routine.
