Which oil(s) should be used for oily skin?

The skin requires daily care to be nourished and protected from external aggressions. The treatments used must be tailored to its type: oily, combination, or dry. Vegetable oil is incorporated into the daily skincare routine. We invite you to discover the vegetable oil that is suitable for oily skin.

What characterises oily skin?

Oily skin is characterised by an excessive secretion of sebum by the sebaceous glands. This excess is the cause of the appearance of blemishes (spots, blackheads, etc...). Furthermore, the skin tends to shine throughout the day and the pores are more dilated, more visible than for other skin types. The application of treatments that contribute to the regulation of sebum can reduce blemishes (spots, blackheads, etc...) and restore clear and balanced skin. It should be noted that skin can become oily for various reasons: stress, hormonal imbalance, pregnancy, pollution or even diet.

Which plant oils for oily skin?

Contrary to popular belief, vegetable oils are allies for oily skin in restoring their balance. The condition is to choose gentle, non-comedogenic vegetable oils with a penetrating texture that have purifying, healing, and regulating properties. In this category, the best vegetable oils for oily skin are hazelnut and jojoba.

  • Thehazelnut vegetable oil :

    Thehazelnut vegetable oil is the go-to oil for oily and blemish-prone skin. It aids in regulating sebum production and restoring the hydrolipidic film. It also possesses nourishing and softening properties. Moreover, it quickly penetrates the epidermis without leaving a greasy film and without being comedogenic. Thehazelnut oil is highly concentrated in unsaturated fatty acids. Rich in oleic acid, it helps the skin maintain its elasticity. Oleic acid is also known for its reparative and healing virtues. Omega-6 contributes to the maintenance of skin elasticity. The vitamin E contained in the care oil protects the skin from free radicals thanks to its antioxidant action. However, it is contraindicated for people allergic to oilseeds.

  • The vegetable oil of jojoba:

    Thejojoba vegetable oil is composed of esters, saturated fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids, and sterols. It also contains unsaponifiables that help combat ageing and protect the skin from external aggressions. The composition of this oil closely resembles that of the sebum secreted by the body, allowing it to have a strong affinity with the skin. Thus, it blends with the sebum to form a light film on the skin, thereby strengthening the hydrolipidic film and preventing dehydration. Jojoba oil also exerts a rebalancing and sebum-regulating action to provide a matte, non-shiny finish to the complexion and reduce the appearance of imperfections (dilated pores, spots, blackheads, etc...). Moreover, it reduces wrinkles and densifies the dermal tissue. Non-comedogenic and non-greasy, jojoba oil penetrates very quickly to nourish the skin deeply.
