Oils That Reduce Oiliness: How It Works

"Oily skin should avoid using facial oils" you've probably heard this skincare myth before. We totally understand that using facial oils on oily skin sounds contradicting and horrifying! Oils often get a bad reputation and are associated with grease, acne, and pores. Well, the truth is adding the right oils onto oily skin can actually help reduce oiliness and promote healthy skin.

The right oils will not clog your pores.
