Can you use face oil on oily skin?

I speak to a lot of people who tell me they have oily skin so they are afraid to use a face oil, for fear of making their skin oilier. While it may seem counter-productive to apply oil to oily skin, actually it is one of the best things you can do for it. This is because it helps to balance your skin's natural oil production and let it know that your skin has enough oil and doesn't need to produce any more. Whereas if you strip the natural oils from the skin with products like harsh foaming cleansers, your skin will respond by producing more oil. It's a never-ending circle.

What is important for oily skin is to choose a light, easily absorbed face oil, rather than thicker, richer oils. And opt for a natural face oil rather than synthetic versions, which may contain mineral oil which clogs pores.

Although designed for normal to dry skin, our Willowberry Nutrient Boost Treatment Oil is also great for oily and combination skin for exactly these reasons - it's 100% natural, ultra-light and easily absorbed.
