The Oily Skin Myth

What You Might Not Know

So what is the Oily Skin Myth? I'm sure many of you have read or heard that if you have oily skin or acne that you should never use products with oil on your skin. Wrong!

So many times I've heard that adding more oil to oily skin will make your skin even oilier, but that just isn't true.

Oily skin can become dehydrated and dry just like every other skin type (You might not notice it!) and this can make your skin produce even MORE oil.




Use a Light Moisturizer

By using a light moisturizer morning and night you can actually reduce oily skin. (I didn't believe it at first either!)

Emu oil moisturizer is a great one to use! Very light and great for under makeup. When talking about acne emu oil definitely helped and did miracles for my acne. I used it straight on my skin at night and it really did improve.

Using oil on your skin does depend some on the person, in knowing what oil to use because there are oils that will clog your pores.

  • Add a few drops of witch hazel essential oil to 1oz water.
  • Use a cotton ball and dab on your skin.

    Try This Simple Trick...

    Use a natural leather Chamois cloth.

    That's it. That's the trick.

    Use the cloth to wipe your forehead, nose, chin - wherever oil builds up and starts to make your face shiny. The cloth removes the oil which gives you the double benefit of less oil sitting on your face, and reducing the shine.
