Facial Oils have come a long way in the past several years. They have gone from being a relatively niche skincare product to being a readily available beauty staple, accessible via almost every brand from drugstore to high end. As someone with dry skin I have been a longtime fan of facial oils. But it is becoming increasingly more understood that facial oils aren’t just for those with dry skin. There are beautiful options out there for every skin type and the skincare benefits abound in introducing a quality oil to your routine.
