Facial Oils & Oily Skin - Do they work?

For those of you who read my blog regularly or watch my YouTube Videos - you'll know my skin is a complex patchwork of each skin type stitched inconveniently together, for example, I have extremely sensitive under eyes, normal cheeks and a dry and flaky yet oily forehead. If you have skin like this I feel your struggle.

I recently read an article debating whether moisturising your skin vs not moisturising had any benefits for people with oily skin. I personally cannot skip moisturiser my forehead becomes so tight and itchy so I skipped the later part of the article. But the first half gave me some food for thought - what if I wasn't moisturising my face enough?

I headed to my local Boots and picked up their Botanics 100% Organic Facial Oil - and as instructed on the box I added after toner and before moisturiser. I've used this for around three weeks now and the difference to my skin is remarkable. No longer have I got dry patches which my foundation clings to, and better yet it creates such a healthy but not greasy canvas that my foundation glides on effortlessly. My skin looks more radiant for adding this extra step, my oily T-Zone is somewhat calming down and best of all it didn't trigger any nasty breakouts.

Don't be afraid to add some moisture to your skin care routine - you might be surprised by the results.
