The Best Oils For Your Skin Type

Cleansing with oil seems to be the new “must-try-will-change-your-life!” beauty regimen, and I’ll admit I’ve never been more intimidated by a skin care routine before. As much as it makes sense, the idea of regulating the oils your skin produces using oil… it also doesn’t make any sense at all. Does it?

Stylist.com put together a really handy slideshow of which oils are best for your skin type, and armed with this information I feel slightly less trepidation about marching myself to the drug store and giving it a try. After the jump, a few of their recommendations for your face, body, and hair. Hope you find courage!

  • Rodin Olio Lusso Face Oil 1 of 11
    Rodin Olio Lusso Face Oil
    The perfect option for dry faces, this oil includes jasmin, apricot, and jojoba. At the price, here's hoping a little bit will go a long way!

  • Dr Hauschka Rose Body Oil 2 of 11
    Dr Hauschka Rose Body Oil
    Damask rose is an idea I can get behind. Sounds like it smells amazing.
    Buy it HERE for $29
  • Tatcha Camelia Cleansing Oil 3 of 11
    Tatcha Camelia Cleansing Oil
    Another perfect oil for those with dry skin, apply as you would a regular cleanser and rinse lightly with lukewarm water. Apparently oils have excellent cleansing properties, removing dirt and, yes, oil, with ease. I know, it makes no sense. But at the same time it makes SO much sense.

  • Shu Uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil 4 of 11
    Shu Uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil
    This cleanser is recommended for oily skin. And, pore clarifying! Sign me up.
    Buy it HERE for $31
  • Whole Foods Virgin Coconut Oil 5 of 11
    Whole Foods Virgin Coconut Oil
    I've heard a lot of good things about coconut oil from friend's who've used it for everything from skin creams to hair serums to body lotions to (even) cooking with it! (Maybe from a different jar?) This is on my must-try list. Cost effective, and I imagine it smells divine!
    Buy it HERE for $7
  • DHC Oil Cleanser 6 of 11
    DHC Oil Cleanser
    A good cleanser for combination skin. (Um, that would be me!)
    Buy it HERE for $26
  • Neutrogena Light Sesame Body Oil 7 of 11
    Neutrogena Light Sesame Body Oil
    Get this one at your local drug store and tell me how it goes! Personally I am not a fan of the smell of sesame oil, but Stylist promises it's a very subtle scent.
    Buy it HERE for $7.99
  • Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil 8 of 11
    Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil
    Nourishes and protects, got it? This one is for your hair. Oils in the hair makes perfect sense, so long as you're sticking to the lower thirds of your tresses. Smells like camelia petals. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
    Buy it HERE for $68
  • Heritage Store Olive Oil Shampoo 9 of 11
    Heritage Store Olive Oil Shampoo
    Had you ever considered shampooing with olive oil? Me neither. I'm completely intrigued by the idea.
    Buy it HERE for $9
  • Nature Made Vitamin E Capsules 10 of 11
    Nature Made Vitamin E Capsules
    I mean, sure you can take it orally, but even better, bust these capsules open and apply directly where needed. (Just be sure to wear clothes or sleep on sheets you don't care much for--these suckers stain!)
    Buy it HERE for $10.21
  • Now Foods Grape Seed Oil 11 of 11
    Now Foods Grape Seed Oil
    Stylist says grape seed oil is the best oil for those who are oily on their own. Even then, they recommend avoiding the t-zone at all costs.
    Buy it HERE for $8
