If you already have oily skin, you may think that we’ve lost our marbles if we asked you to intentionally apply oil to your face. However, with the right skincare oil by your side, you can pave the way to moisturized, nourished and healed skin while protecting it from environmental pollution. As strange as it sounds, there are some natural oils out there that actually reduce the oil that’s produced in your skin! While some of you may rightfully point out that not every skin type is the same, it’s important to try different variants of them and see which one works best for your skin.
Before attempting to apply the oil on your face, we suggest that you try applying it to a smaller portion of your skin first. That way, you would get a better idea whether the product agrees with it or not. Here are 10 skincare oils for every beauty need (You’re welcome!)

Pomegranate oil is fantastic because it’s packed with antioxidants which are good for your skin’s health. While it helps brighten dull skin, it also reduces any early signs of ageing. When you apply the oil, you’ll notice that it instantly gets absorbed into the skin and keeps it feeling smooth and moisturized all day long.
As compared to most skin care oils, tea tree oil is thinner and lighter. It’s perfect for acne-prone skin and treating fungal infections like ringworms, scabies and athlete's foot. To make the most of this beauty product, combine 1-2 drops of tea tree oil with your facial cleanser and apply the mix to your face. Wash well with lukewarm water and pat dry using a fluffy towel for positive results.
When olive oil is applied to skin, it reduces the signs of aging drastically. It gives skin a dewy finish and makes it smooth and supple. You can also use the oil on your nails to smoothen and heal damaged cuticles. You’ve got to try it to believe it!
