PAM­PER­ING FACE OILS

Glamour (South Africa) - - Beauty Flash Skin -

Ask any fa­cial­ist, ac­tress or beauty ed what she puts on her skin, and face oil will fea­ture. “Two years ago, ap­ply­ing face oils seemed like smear­ing but­ter on your face,” says der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr Joshua Ze­ich­ner. “But there’s a grow­ing de­sire for nat­u­ral prod­ucts, and af­ter cleans­ing oils be­came pop­u­lar, peo­ple started un­der­stand­ing that putting oil on skin doesn’t mean it’ll feel greasy.” Fans love the glow that oils give, and quick ab­sorp­tion means that you can ap­ply makeup ASAP.

AVOID THEM IF

You have cys­tic acne. Also avoid heavy oils, like av­o­cado, which can clog pores, says Dr Ze­ich­ner. In­stead, use tea tree or ar­gan oil.
