Fighting Oil with Oil

Fighting Oil with Oil

One of the most common mistakes you can make when cleansing is using harsh astringents, chemical peels, and overly drying face masks to soak up every last bit of shine. The problem is, if the skin is stripped from its natural oils, it goes into overdrive causing excess sebum buildup. This results in an even oilier complexion, and increases the chances of clogged pores which can cause or exacerbate acne.

So while it may seem counterintuitive to slather on facial oils when you have combination or oily skin, it actually works wonders to balance excess sebum production and prevent breakouts. There are plenty of additional benefits to incorporating facial oils into your skincare regime, as different oils all have their own special properties

Some of the most popular facial oils used to combat oily, acne prone skin is Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, and Sea Buckthorn Oil. All three of these luxurious oils are found in DERMA E’s Radiant Glow Face Oil, which also contains concentrated nutrients and antioxidants such as vitamins E & B to soothe inflammation, diminish fine lines, and control acne breakouts.

How to Use Facial Oils

One of the most popular ways to apply face oils is to just massage two to three drops onto clean, dry skin at night before bed. However, another way to incorporate face oils into your daily skincare routine is to use an oil based cleanser instead of your current gel or cream cleanser. DERMA E’s Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil washes away dirt, makeup, and other impurities while locking in essential hydration for a healthy skin tone.

As you can see, integrating a face oil into your daily skincare routine has a wide range of benefits! Which method would you be most interested in trying for yourself? Leave a comment below to share!

  • I have normal but sebsative skin of that makes sense. I would love to try these products#

  • I have used the Derma-E sensitive skin facial products for over a decade. I have sensitive skin and documented allergies to fragrance and perfume oils. The sensitive skin products have never irritated my skin and makeup always applies evenly. Two changes you have made, removal of the fruit enzyme facial scrub and toner for sensitive skin, leaves no options for fragrance free exfoliating and toning. What are your recommendations?

  • I think I have combination skin. Where it is dry in my t-zone and oily everywhere else. I would like to try the Radiant Glow Face Oil and the Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil.

  • I have a dry and anti-aging skin type. I would really love to try these. For a long time ago I stop using any type makeup on my skin. Just use the skin care and sunscreen and really hate the fact when I put the sunscreen on my face. I see the dry patches. Thank you so much for the opportunity ❤️

DERMA E didn’t start out in the beauty aisle or the boardroom. Instead, we began in a small health food store in Southern California. Our first product was a jar of Vitamin E 12,000 I.U. Moisturizing Cream. People were amazed at the results it had on their skin and word caught on.
