You can use oils to fight blemishes and oily skin? You’re kidding right? Nope, facial oils are actually one of the best weapons to fight acne. First off, you can combat your skin’s over production of oil, or sebum, by using a facial oil. This means that you’re replacing your potentially skin clogging sebum with nourishing and non-comedogenic oils that will help balance the complexion. Plus there are tons of oils that help combat specific types of breakouts.
Dealing with oily, sensitive, or blemish-prone skin? SkinOwl’s Lavender Beauty Drops are intended to combat inflammation, acne, and redness, leaving skin looking calm, clear and healed from within. Lavender oil helps absorb your skin’s excess oil while eliminating the bacteria causing breakouts on the skin’s surface.
SkinOwl’s Geranium Beauty Drops help balance, decongest, and combat hormonal breakouts while boosting radiance. It’s perfect for those with combination skin or dealing with blemishes during their cycle. Plus, the rich and nourishing Argan oil present in both formulas help speed up skin healing and recovery while deeply moisturizing.
As a Blemish Banisher
For those of you who remember their High School chem class, you may remember the idea that like dissolves like. Well much of our makeup contains oil based ingredients, so when you’re trying to remove it, using an oil based makeup remover can do the trick, especially on those pesky waterproof formulas.
The Chamomile Honey Makeup Remover by Wildcraft is perfect for just that. Rich avocado oil, caster oil, and calendula infused sunflower oil melts away makeup while softening and hydrating the skin. Chamomile and honey heals and rejuvenates the skin while aloe vera soothes and calms.
Looking for a more nourishing oil-based cleansing formula? The Wildcraft Wash Oil Cleanser is the perfect way to leave your skin feeling clean, hydrated and soft without any harsh, sudsy surfactants. This formula gently removes makeup, dirt, and grime while cleansing the skin of impurities and congestion. Plus the anti-inflammatory cold pressed oils help increase circulation, cell turnover and promote relaxation.

Oils are some of the most multipurpose ingredients found in skincare. From makeup melters to deep skin nourishers, no skincare regimen is complete without its fair share of botanical oil based products.
What makes oils unique in the vast realm of skincare formulations you ask? Well, firstly, oils are one of the few ingredients that can actually penetrate your skin, delivering skin saving vitamins, minerals, and nutrients deep into your epidermis, which by the way is the layer of your skin where skin cells are produced.
This doesn’t mean that all oils are good for your skin though. When shopping for cosmetic oils, opt for cold pressed as this extraction technique doesn’t compromise the integrity of the ingredients or the vitamins and minerals it contains. If you have sensitive or blemish-prone skin, it could be beneficial to check a comedogenic scale in order to determine whether an oil is suited for your skin or not. The Comedogenic scale goes from 0-5, zero being the least likely to clog your pores and 5 being the most likely to clog your pores and potentially break you out. Those with more acne-prone skin should gravitate to oils in the 0-2 range, while those with dryer more normal skin can tolerate oils such as avocado oil which is a 3 on the scale.
Now that you can select the oils that are best suited to your skin type, here’s how you can incorporate them in your skincare routine.
