TH E COR­RECT OIL (for your skin type) makes mois­turiser more ef­fec­tive and is as tar­geted as a serum. No won­der then that so many fa­mous faces have em­braced it, from Vic­to­ria Beck­ham and Mi­randa Kerr who love pure rosehip seed oil, to su­per­mod­els Karolina Kurkova and Adri­ana Lima who wor­ship the cult prod­uct Rodin Olio Lusso (`7,000 ap­prox). So what’s caus­ing the oil rush? First things first: They are com­pletely nat­u­ral. “Women to­day don’t want beauty with con­se­quences—we are say­ing no to chem­i­cals that harm us and the en­vi­ron­ment. Oils fit per­fectly into this cat­e­gory by virtue of them be­ing 100 per­cent botan­i­cal,” says Dr Mad­huri Agar­wal of Mumbai’s The Skin Clinic. In ad­di­tion, the tex­ture has changed. The heavy and come­do­genic prop­er­ties of oils have been cor­rected, mak­ing them a plea­sure to wear. “Sci­en­tists are mix­ing wa­ter and es­sen­tial oils ac­cord­ing to var­i­ous skin types so they won’t clog pores or cause break­outs,” ex­plains der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr Van­dana Cha­trath at Kubba Skin Clinic, New Delhi. But that’s not all, the real meat lies in the ben­e­fits. Oils help erase blem­ishes, calm red­ness, in­crease the lipid con­tent (think creamy skin), mak­ing you glow with­out any harm­ful ef­fects. “I per­son­ally like oil be­cause it acts like an ef­fec­tive bar­rier on the skin. It pre­vents mois­ture loss and also seals in ac­tive in­gre­di­ents from other skin­care,” says Cha­trath. It must be worn as the last step of your rou­tine to seal all the good­ness in, as the large mol­e­cules of the oil seep through all the lay­ers. And as the weather changes and your skin de­mands more at­ten­tion, we rec­om­mend that you by­pass the Bo­tox and slick

some oil on your face.
