Oliewijzer – voor ieder huidtype een passende olie

Oil guide - a suitable oil for every skin type

Which oil suits my skin?

Our skin - the outside of our body - is our largest organ. It protects us from outside influences. It keeps us warm. And is an important link in the detoxification of our body. All the more reason to take good care of it.

The skin consists of three layers: the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue. The outer layer, the epidermis, is the layer we have the most influence on from the outside. The epidermis is composed of the stratum corneum, acid mantle and microbiome. The condition of these three together determines whether your skin is in good condition or not.

Skin types

Every person is unique. The same goes for any skin. The skin is a living organ. This means that it can change under the influence of weather, stress and many other causes. It may very well be that your skin reacts better to other products in the summer than in the winter.

To help you choose products, we at More make a subdivision into a number of different skin types. A skin can be oily, dry, sensitive, combination, normal or mature. Specific properties apply to each skin type. Where one skin benefits more from a greasy product, another skin needs more moisturizing products. Every skin is different. With proper care, it is possible to keep the skin healthy and vital for as long as possible.

Oily skin

You can recognize oily skin by the glow layer on the skin. This type of skin is often accompanied by pimples and larger pores and produces a lot of sebum. As a result, the skin shines faster. And pores can become clogged. Which can cause pimples again. A drying oil works very well for this skin type. This allows you to nourish the skin without the oil leaving a greasy layer.

Dry skin

You can recognize dry skin by the dry feeling that the skin causes. This type of skin produces little sebum and is dehydrated. Non drying oils are best used for dry skin. The oil keeps the skin supple and in good condition.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin reacts quickly to external influences. Think of heat, cold, drought, high humidity, the sun. This can cause the skin to turn red. The skin feels tight and therefore itches quickly. An oil can help to make and keep the skin resilient. It is important to check whether your skin reacts well to the oil. Sensitive skins can also react to all-natural products.

Mixed skin

A mixed skin is, as the words suggest, 'mixed' in terms of type. The skin is partly oily and partly dry. Often the dry patches are on the cheeks. The oily spots are often found on the T-zone: the forehead, nose and chin. Semi-drying oils are very nice for people with this skin type.

Normal skin

Does your skin look fresh? And isn't your skin too dry and not too oily? Then you have normal skin. This type of skin is well balanced. An oil can also be used in the case of this skin type. Jojoba oil has a lot of vitamin E and is therefore ideal as an everyday oil.

Mature skin

Aging is something we see quickly in the condition of the skin. As we age, the elasticity of the skin decreases. This results in a softer skin. The skin can also become duller and pigment spots can appear. With the right skin care you can slow down this process. You can use rosehip oil to prevent and/or partially remedy the sagging skin. This oil promotes the elasticity of the skin.

Oil types

Smearing oil on the face is often seen as a big no-go. It would be too greasy and cause pimples. This is not quite correct. Here too, it depends on the skin type which oil works well for the skin.

At More we only sell vegetable oils. These oils are natural and ideal for nourishing the skin. It is important to know that not every oil is the same. Just like skins, oils all have their own qualities and properties. We can talk about drying, semi-drying and non-drying oils.

Drying oil

This type of oil feels dry on the skin. This means that the oil does not feel greasy on the skin. This is a fine oil for oily skin.

Semi-dry oil

Semi-drying oils are ideally suited for combination skin. This type of oil goes well with both dry and oily areas of combination skin.

Non-drying oil

Dry skins benefit most from a non-drying oil. A non-drying oil helps to maintain the skin's moisture balance. This keeps the skin healthy and elastic.

Use the oil

You can use the oil to rub in your body and face. Natural products can also cause an allergic reaction. Therefore, before you start using the oil, do a patch test by smearing a little oil in your elbow or behind your ear. Discover how your skin reacts to the oil.

You can apply the oil to dry skin, but also to towel-dried skin. In that case, the skin is still slightly moist. When you put oil on it, you lock in the moisture on your skin with the oil. This way the moisture balance is maintained and thanks to the oil you have a well-nourished skin.

When you use make-up you can also remove it with oil. To do this, moisten a reusable cotton pad and put a little oil on it. Pass the disc over your make-up as usual. You can even remove waterproof make-up in this way easily and without the intervention of chemicals.
