Face oil is nothing new but somehow we see it in stores more and more. I have been using Skyn Iceland and Colbert MD Face Oil for a couple of weeks now and I actually really love the results.

In general essential fatty acids are there to replenish and maintain the moisture level of your skin.

As you age your skin’s loses it’s natural oils and your skin becomes drier. Using face oil helps to prevent water loss from your skin and keeps it supple and moisturized.
2. You can use it as a cleanser
Especially, for the girls with oily skin it’s worth trying to cleanse your face with oil. Sounds weird right? You can actually reduce the oil found on your skin by simply using face oil.
3. Apply a face oil before your moisturizer.
If you apply an oil before your anti-aging cream or moisturizer, the oil molecules can trick the skin into letting active ingredients like retinol, glycolic acid, and vitamin C deeper into the skin and closer to the collagen-producing fibroblasts, all without irritating the surface.
4. Some oils actually can help to reduce breakouts.
