5 Of The Best Face Oils For Nourishing Dry Skin

5 Of The Best Face Oils For Nourishing Dry Skin

Blame it on the weather, the wrong products, hormones or absolutely nothing at all (the most frustrating of all), dry skin flare ups are creeping into our homes and moving in on our faces.

Irrespective of your skin type, you will almost certainly experience dry skin at some point. So, the next time you do, instead of slathering on 10 products in a state of panic, why not apply just one powerful and nourishing face oil that will restore your skin’s soft, supple glow?

It’s important to note, however, that not all facial oils are built the same or serve the same purpose. Some facial oils are light enough to prevent breakouts on oily skin types, while other richer varieties have been specifically formulated to rejuvenate and protect dry skin types.

With ingredients such as almond oil, rosehip oil, and soothing antioxidants, we can reverse dry skin by locking in moisture and supporting a compromised skin barrier. So to make the process as easy as possible, here are our top picks for face oils that will rescue a dry complexion.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

“My skin is left looking dewy and fresh. Now for a woman way out of her 20’s that is a mean feat.” – Perthchick

  1. I have tried some facial oils but none of these ones. Unfortunately for me they seem to be too rich for my skin or the fragrance in them causes a rosacea flare up. I find if I use one once or twice a week I might get away with it, but usually end up using them on my neck and chest and the skin is nice and soft and hydrated the next day.

  2. I have the Esmi 24K gold oil but haven’t opened it yet because I’m still trying to finish a Clarins oil up. I like to mix a drop in with my night moisturiser so it’s taking me forever to get through. The esmi is sitting on my shelf teasing me but I refuse to open it.

  3. After reading the above, I think I will try the Habitual Beauty Rejuvenating Facial Oil. I don’t use oil too often as it can leave a film on my skin and occasional cause a break out.

  4. Absolutely love facial oils! My skin is sensitive and often dehydrated so I am always using one. At the moment, I swap between using Prickly Pear Seed Oil – Fatima’s Garden and Virgin Plum Oil – Smoosh. The prickly pear one is also good for skin inflammation.
