If you’re someone with oily skin, chances are you’ve struggled to keep it moisturized without looking like an oil slick. You probably run away from anything that has an oil-based ingredient and shudder at the word glow-y because it has a completely different meaning to you. Let’s be real here: Us oily-skinned people were strobing without trying before it was even a thing. But in all seriousness, the task to find the right skin-care products can become tedious. Hours and hours of reading up on information, looking up YouTube videos, and asking store associates to help you out can leave you feeling defeated.
And most people who have oily skin just want to get rid of it at all costs. Sian Jones, cofounder of Balance Me skin care, told Cosmopolitan, "Many people try and combat congested skin by using harsh, stripping products that remove all oils from the skin. This causes the skin to over-compensate for the reduction of oils by producing even more, which in turn worsens the congestion."
That’s right: In an attempt to combat greasiness with different chemicals, you've actually been helping your skin overproduce oils — oh, the irony. Since the harsh winter weather is here to stay for a while, it’s important to keep your skin hydrated. Oily skin craves moisturizing love just as much as dry skin. With that in mind, we rounded up six different oils specifically formulated to give those with oily skin a little extra TLC.
