The Surprising Benefits of Using Face Oil on Oily Skin
Is It Possible To Use Face Oil If You Have Oily Skin?
You thought face oils were only for dry skin? Although some oils can aggravate oily skin and cause excess sebum production to increase, other oils can regulate the production of sebum and help restore the skin's delicate balance. Even if your skin is oily, face oils should be part of your skincare routine. Find out our top face oils for oily skin, and how to use them.
Sebum, contrary to what you might think it is, is not your enemy. It helps keep your skin hydrated and forms a protective film that shields you from daily aggressors. An imbalance can cause excess sebum to build up, which gives the skin a shiny look. As the amount of sebum buildups, pores get larger and clogs up, leading to spots, blemishes, and blackheads. You must listen to your body and make sure you get enough sleep. However, it is also important to use the right skincare products to treat your skin.
All those myths are nonsense. Oily skin is not a problem, but it does require that it be properly hydrated. If the skin isn't properly hydrated, it could produce more sebum to compensate. This can lead to an oily skin cycle.
Be careful when choosing your skincare products. Some products for oily skin can be very harsh and leave your skin more sensitive than normal. It's better to choose natural, organic skincare products that are gentle on your skin and will adjust to your skin's needs.
Botanical oils are rich in powerful active ingredients that can be used to treat skin conditions. They also offer a natural and beautiful way to restore your skin's natural health, even if you have oily skin. You can use them as an active ingredient or pure oil, depending on the skin issues. When oils contain the right active ingredients, they won't stimulate oil production.
La Coéss believes in the incredible powers of botanical oils. We believe that these plant-derived oils can have healing properties and you can trust them to take care of your skin (and your health).
We will give you the inside scoop on using face oils in your oily skincare routine. We will also share our top face oils for oily skin with tips and tricks on how to use them. Continue reading to find the ultimate La Coéss’ guide for oil-based skin care.

Will Face Oils Clog My Pores?
Facial oils can be difficult to use if your skin is oily. This is especially true if you are prone to blemishes. We get it. The idea that oil could help reduce oil is counterintuitive. A common skincare practice was, until recently, to avoid oil-based products for oily skin.
Recent studies have shown that oils, specifically non-comedogenic ones, such as rosehip oil, can help balance the skin. Because dehydrated skin tends over-produce oil to compensate for lack of moisture. Excessive oiliness eventually leads to clogged pores and more frequent breakouts. This can lead to shiny skin. Oily skin can reap the benefits of using face oils, provided they are the right type.
