Face oils are a really crucial part of my routine, they really help keep my skin balanced and always leave it dewy which is always a bonus in my books. There's a bit of a myth in the beauty world that oily skin folk shouldn't be using or are scared of using oils on their skin but the truth of the matter is your skin is producing too much oil because it hasn't gotten enough, it almost goes into survival mode and starts pumping out oil.

When your incorporate a face oil into your routine it tricks your skin into thinking that it has enough oil, therefore it balances out oil production.

Don't be afraid of the face oil, they do wonders for the skin.

Here are my current favourite face oils:
