Moisturizing Oils for Each Skin Type

Did you know that even though your skin has acne, there are hydrating oils that can help you control your oil production and improve your condition? Learn more in this article!

Each skin type needs a different moisturizing oil. This depends on their characteristics. If we don’t use the right one, we can harm ourselves, despite the fact that we’re using natural products.

In this article, discover what hydrating oil will help you to get hydrated, firm, bright, and younger looking skin. 

Normal skin

If you don’t know what your skin is like, you probably have normal skin. Those who have a problem need to wait to treat it with the right products.

If your skin is normal, you can try the different oil options and choose the one you like the most.

We always need to make the difference between the skin of your face (and neck) and that of the rest of your body.

Your face is exposed daily to the effect of free radicals. Also, it suffers more from the consequences of our rhythm of life, emotions, stress, bad diets, etc.

Because of this, it’s very important to find the best oil for you. This can prevent aging, impurities, sagging, and dehydration.

What hydrating oil do I need?

Dry and older skins

People who have dry skin need to take care of it all the time. This is because a lack of hydration is the main cause of skin aging. If it isn’t moisturized your skin loses more and more water.


Because of this, older skins usually need a hydrating oil that gives their skin elasticity and firmness.

The most recommended oils are as follows:

  • Almond oil: very nutritious, rich in vitamin E, and very inexpensive.
  • Shea butter: Excellent for older and devitalized skins.
  • Avocado oil: Rich in fatty acids, it gives brightness and rejuvenates your skin.
  • Musk rose: This oil increases your skin’s regeneration and has a great healing power.

You can choose one of them or combine them.

Oily skins

Oily skin is very common during adolescence. It is characterized by a larger production of oil. This gives your skin a shiny appearance.

This oil gives you a protective barrier against external agents. But, it usually makes you look dirty, and in some cases, can cause impurities and acne.

With the right lotion, we can balance excessive skin oil. And you can do this without damaging your skin with alcohols or other astringent products that are too aggressive.

  • We recommend using jojoba oil. This has a texture similar to your skin’s natural oil and it has a great regulatory ability.
  • We can combine it with aloe vera gel. This will give us a lighter lotion.

Mixed skins

Mixed skins are characterized by an excess of oil in the T zone (forehead, nose, and chin). This kind of skin also has a lack of hydration in your cheeks. This makes it difficult to use a single lotion.

In very complex situations, we can use different oils for each zone.

However, we can make a balancing oil with two ingredients: extra virgin coconut oil and lavender oil.

  • Both regulate your skin. They also increase your skin’s natural ability to make the right amount of oil.

Delicate and sensitive skins

We always need to treat delicate and sensitive skins with a lot of care. This skin can react to any synthetic or natural component.

This is also a skin that easily reddens and can even get wrinkles easily.

  • The best hydrating oil for this kind of skin is marigold oil. It both calms and regulates your skin. Also, it can be combined with aloe vera.
  • Both have beneficial properties for reducing irritation and itching.

Skin with acne

If you suffer from acne, you need to follow a specific routine to treat this problem. This not only depends on your skin. It’s also a matter of hormones, diet, etc.

Most oils are harmful to skins with acne. This is because they block your pores where you have too much oil. And they infect your pimples.

However, there is an oil that can be harmful. But, this is because it acts both at a hormonal level and it has a slightly oily texture. This is primrose oil.

We can mix primrose oil with a little tea tree oil. This has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Because of this, it helps prevent infections.
