Not all oils are bad for the skin. In fact, botanical oils are having a much-deserved revival in skin care as they are greatly beneficial for all skin conditions, including oily skin! Suffer from dryness? They're predominantly moisturising, making them a must-have. Mature, dry and ageing skin will soak up high levels of rejuvenating antioxidants, polyphenols and vitamins. And oily, acne-prone skin will find a happy place as they dissolve waxy, fatty deposits to deep clean without overdrawing. They also help replenish skin’s defensive barrier helping skin stay hydrated and balanced.

Here, Dermalogica skin experts round up their top facial oils for healthy skin.

This soothing, antioxidant-rich oil helps hydrate and firm while improving the appearance of ageing skin. Find it in Skin Resurfacing Cleanser.


3. Argan Oil
