I always get this *shocked* reaction when I mention using facial oils, more so from my oily skin clients (which totally makes sense). My skin is already oily, why would I apply more oil to my skin? Wouldn't that clog my pores even more? My face is already so shiny.
Short answer: No. If you have oily skin and you're not applying any products with oil on your face, your body will actually produce MORE oil to make up for lack of topical oil to keep your skin hydrated. (pretty nuts right?)
As for those concerned that facial oils will clog pores and cause breakouts, let me tell you there are so many non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging) oils that are fantastic for everyone's skin type.
Here's my list:
DRY skin: Marula Oil
NORMAL skin: Jojoba Oil
ACNE-PRONE: Jojoba, Squalane, and Tea Tree Oil
COMBO SKIN: Jojoba or Squalane
