Face oils. Sure, the idea of slathering oil all over your face may seem counterintuitive, especially if you are oily to begin with or prone to clogged pores, but it’s exactly what you should be doing if you’re on the quest for a clearer complexion, smoother texture or more radiance. “Oils have a lower molecular weight than a lot of creams, so they’re absorbed deeper into the skin,” explains Dendy Engelman, MD, a dermatologist in New York City. This allows them to deliver nutrients deeper into the dermal layer where skin renewal takes place. That’s why the trick is selecting the best oil for your skin’s specific needs. To help you get started, here’s a helpful guide to finding the best face oil for every skin type.
