My Top Five Facial Oils for Oily Skin

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart”

– Hellen Keller

Hello my lovelies!

Up until my experience with Accutane, I wasn’t much of a facial oil user. I had long been under the impression that those with oily skin should avoid facial oils entirely. Luckily, through education and my own research, I’ve come to learn that I was very misguided, and have fully embraced facial oils into my skincare routine. In today’s blog post, I’m talking about my top five favorite facial oils for oily skin and why they’re so beneficial to this particular skin type.

Let’s Get Started:


Argan Oil –

Considered one of the ultimate healing oils, Argan oil is a fantastic all-purpose facial that solves a wide array of skin issues. For those with oily and potentially acneic skin, Argan oil has the ability to mimic the natural oil produced by skin, fade scarring, and protect against free radical damage that can often lend itself to reoccurring skin concerns like hyperpigmentation.

Jojoba Oil –

Yet another all-purpose facial oil, Jojoba oil is also capable of mimicking natural oils in the skin. Although it is not actually an oil and rather a wax byproduct, Jojoba oil also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce irritation in the skin, and is also anti-bacterial, which can help reduce the appearance of and heal blemishes that are so common with oily skin. If you both oily and acneic skin, this is the winning oil for you.

Tea Tree Oil –

By now, anyone with oily and acneic skin has heard of this facial oil. Tea Tree oil is best known for its antiseptic properties, meaning that it has the ability to treat active blemishes, as well as any unwanted bacteria on the surface of the skin in general. If you are interested in the benefits of Tea Tree oil, please be aware that it is best to patch test this oil first before regular use, as this oil is very potent and can lead to a burning sensation in the skin for a small few.

Pomegranate Oil –

This is kind of a weird and lesser known one, but fruit based oils are an underrated champion in the skincare world. While Pomegranate oil doesn’t directly solve oiliness, Pomegranate seeds contain a high amount of the omega five fatty acid known as Punicic acid, an acid that has some pretty incredible anti-inflammatory properties, as well as the ability to unclog pores with relative ease.

Rosehip Oil –

If any of you are familiar with Accutane, you’ll know that it is essentially a vitamin A overdose to kill overactive oil producing glands. Vitamin A is also a main feature in Rosehip oil, which makes it a great product to ward of oily skin. Rosehip oil is also full of other antioxidants and fatty acids, making it a great candidate for cellular regeneration. Research has also shown that many of those with oily skin are lacking in Linoleic acid, something that is in abundance within Rosehip oil, meaning that Rosehip oil is also great at supplying a much need ingredient to the compositional makeup of our skin.

      Aww thank you! I really wasn’t at all until I went on Accutane, and it stuck with me even as my breakouts and oiliness came back. I’ve found they’ve helped drastically, and working toward my esthetician’s license has opened up way more knowledge about oils to me.

    • ZoBeautie says:

      Milia are actually incredibly difficult to remove and should be looked at by an esthetician. There is no oil that will actually remove them as they are deposits of cholesterol within the skin. They can potentially be extracted, but they are not traditional pimples.

    Okay. Yeah for real they are! Washing my face at night isn’t enough, no idea what causes them

    • ZoBeautie says:

      The overproduction of keratin in the skin causes a deposit. Sun-damage, skin injury and your skin’s ability to exfoliate normally in the area are usually what cause them.

    • ZoBeautie says:

      I love rose oils since they have a great amount of vitamin A to combat acne, but I just can’t find it in me to continue to order product from The Ordinary with how much it ends up costing me and how little product you actually get.
