Adding facial oils to your daily nighttime skincare routine is something that can be very daunting to some of us, especially those with oily skin. After all, why on earth would you apply more oil to an ~already~ oily face? Sounds a lot like oil slick city, am I right? But, the myth that people with oily skin aren't supposed to use facial oils has long been debunked.
ICYDK, facial oils are actually very beneficial for you as they are full of potent ingredients that are good for your skin. They are also good for shrinking enlarged pores, hydrating dry skin, reducing wrinkles, and some can work as a makeup primer, too.
So when exactly do you fit in a facial oil in your skincare routine? Short answer: It's the last step. Facial oils are occlusive, meaning they help in sealing in moisture and everything else that you just applied.
