Last week I went into a health food store with a list of items I was looking for, that the helpful employee who approached me was a bit confused about. I told him the things I wanted were for skincare, but they were distinctly things you’d find in the grocery isles. That’s because I put coconut and olive oil on my face. The poor staff member wasn’t sure if he should take me to the beauty department or direct me to the shelves next to the pasta sauce. Honestly, it didn’t matter! And that’s what I told him. In fact, I preferred to avoid the beauty section because that’s where I would find brands that decided they could triple the price of olive oil, all because it is packaged in a pretty little bottle with an applicator. You, also, shouldn’t fall for that. But what you should be doing is putting these 15 oils on your face.
Jojoba oil actually mimics your skin’s sebum, which encourages your pores to produce less oil. That makes this oil—which comes from the seed of a shrub native to Arizona—great for those with oily skin.
