a. Jo­joba oil

Ex­tracted from the seed of a south­west­ern U.S. shrub, jo­joba bal­ances out se­bum pro­duc­tion and re­duces clogged pores while nour­ish­ing sen­si­tive skin.

b. Sun­flower oil

Sun­flower oil helps re­tain mois­ture in the skin with­out caus­ing break­outs. It can also plump up skin with a dose of omega-6 fatty acids.

c. Cu­cum­ber

Cu­cum­ber helps re­duce in­flam­ma­tion, and be­cause of its high con­cen­tra­tion of wa­ter, it’s also hy­drat­ing.

d. Green tea

You can treat acne by drink­ing green tea or ap­ply­ing the pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dant top­i­cally. One study shows it re­duces break­outs by 58 per­cent.

e. Ar­gan oil

Use this oil – ex­tracted from the na­tive Moroc­can tree – as a deep overnight con­di­tioner on your hair or skin for a lu­mi­nous qual­ity.
