“Skin suicide” might be the first thought that comes to your mind when we recommend you add face oils to your skincare routine. The words ‘oil’ and ‘skin’ used together in the same sentence often causes many to cringe, a no no right from the get go. But, what if we told you it could be your “magic in a bottle”?
A facial oil is a skincare workhorse, providing benefits that could turn your skin around, benefits you don’t even know exist yet. In a matter of a fortnight, the right face oil can fix your skin concerns, and give you the skin we are all hoping for.
So, to everyone who is reading, trust us, you need this too. All you need to know is which oil to use, which brings us to this round-up of the best facial oils!
