Your Guide To Facial Oils For Every Skin Type

Skin concern: Oil and acne

Studies show that tea-tree oil can be as effective as benzoyl peroxide.  Grape seed oil is packed with antioxidants and skin brightening vitamin C, and also helps to regulate your skin’s natural oil production. You can find pure tea tree oil at your local Whole Foods or Trader Joes!

In addition to keeping your skin hydrated and soft, it also contains polyphenols, squalene, and fatty acids, which are nourishing and help fight aging. You can use olive oil purchased from your local supermarket- just make sure it says cold pressed.
