7 Facial Oils to Keep Skin Hydrated and Healthy


As someone with an oilier, acne-prone complexion, the word oil in skincare has scared me for years. With the misconception that adding an oil to my routine would make my skin oilier—I’ve stayed away for years and have never thought to add it into my routine. Of course, not every facial oil will work for your specific skin type, but once you find one that works—its truly magical. And thanks to tremendous developments in formulation technology, there are a plethora of facial oils that will help to support your skin goals to reveal healthier, luminous and a more vibrant complexion. Here, we round up our prime picks of facial oils for all types of complexions and skin textures.

Instantly replenishing the skin, it is best suited for drier complexions and works to promote radiance and resurfaces fine lines and wrinkles.  Although formulated with the natural alternative to retinol—bakuchiol—its gentle formulation still allows for morning and night use and its lightweight texture plays perfectly as an addition to your serum or moisturiser.
