Whether you have oily, dry, combination, or blemish-prone skin, there are multipurpose oils for your skin and your hair that will do wonders. Read below to find out which oils we recommend for healthy skin and hair.
For Dry Skin and Dry Hair:
Use coconut oil. This type of oil is perfect for softening skin and hair—not to mention it brings a ton of hydration to both. Make sure to try and buy extra virgin coconut oil to ensure it hasn’t been refined in any way. Try this Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, $11.
For Oily, Combination or Blemished Skin:
Try Argan or grape seed oil. They’re on the lighter side and a couple drops of those won’t leave your face super shiny, but it will be super moisturized. This 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil Light by Josie Maran is especially ideal for those with oily or acne-prone skin.
For an Oily Scalp or Greasy Hair:It’s best to use rosemary oil with a base of jojoba oil. The rosemary oil gets rid of funguses and microbes that can cause grease in your hair. The jojoba oil balances out the power of the rosemary oil, helps heal the scalp, and helps to get rid of the excess oil. Try this 100 percent Rosemary Oil, $14, and this Desert Essence 100 percent pure jojoba oil, $14.
