Our mothers all told us that skin care and oil were never good companions. In fact, it was considered a no-no of the doctors and dermatologists alike. We learned that oil is not good for skin nor hair care. Oil only clogs pores, creates acne, black and whiteheads, and all sorts of skin complaints. And of course, one should never use oil on hair! However, times have changed. In fact, dermatologists, beauty experts and even Hollywood have begun to sing the praises of facial oils for a daily skin care regimen. Why the change of heart - well, certain facial oils possess the ability to turn dull, lifeless complexions into radiant, healthy ones. It's just a matter of understanding the best ones to use.

For facial oils to work for your complexion it is best to start with only a quality oil. Never use mineral oils, lanolin or cheap carrier oils that are often found in flea markets, cheap on-line sites or even drug stores. Inferior oils have a tendency to clog pores and exacerbate problem skin. Too often they are not natural and have chemical ingredients or worse, petroleum byproducts ... ie mineral oil. It is also important to understand the dosages to be used; too much will simply be difficult for your skin to absorb while leaving that unattractive and unwanted greasy, shiny skin look. Do your homework to learn about some of the quality oils that are available and their benefits. Make sure you buy from a reputable company or brand and always read the label. If it includes PET, mineral oil, parabens, silicon, and lots of chemical names you have never heard of then it is most likely not pure and certainly not organic. The highest quality facial oils have beneficial properties that can help to remove and regulate excessive oil (sebum) production in the dermis, providing valuable hydration and moisturizing, which helps to improve skin tissue, reduce signs of aging and provide a total luster to dull and dry skin There are many carrier or base oils available including, grape seed, apricot, almond, avocado, coconut. All have different benefits and degrees of vitamin E. My favorites are a few of the following: provide valuable hydration and moisturizing that helps to improve skin tissue, reduce signs of aging and provide an overall luster to a dull and dry skin. There are many carrier or base oils available including, grape seed, apricot, almond, avocado, coconut. All have different benefits and degrees of vitamin E.

Argan Oil
