As fall turns into winter (or, if you’re in NYC, summer turns into winter, apparently), the change of seasons can take a serious toll on your skin. Redness, dryness, and overall stress can be incredibly damaging. For your skin’s sake, we put together a list of some oils that can help you get through these cold winter months.
Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil
Squalane oil has, as an ingredient, been making a splash in the beauty community for just under a year now for its weightless and moisturizing, yet non-comedogenic properties. This particular product, however, has been one of the most talked-about variants to hit the shelves. A very light oil that contains enough Vitamin C to brighten your skin but not enough to irritate it, it’s a compromise for those who want it all from their skincare.
Peet Rivko Balancing Facial Oil
To say that Peet Rivko completely stripped down what should or needs to be in a cosmetics line would be an understatement. Their entire line, although not expansive, is filled with the least irritating, simplest natural ingredients that the founder, Johanna Peet, could find. This oil, like the rest of their line, is truly one size fits all: it’s unisex, and skin types from the least to most sensitive can use it safely.
Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Facial Oil
Personal note: I was skeptical of facial oils as a whole until I tried this product from nature-dedicated brand Herbivore Botanicals. I thought they would make me break out. Not only did this product calm my rosacea a million times over, but it acts as a wonderful night-time moisturizer. Don’t worry, the blue sheers out.
Rodin Luxury Facial Oil
Linda Rodin was able to build a whole cosmetics line brand once she released her face and body oils, and using them, it’s easy to see why. This high-performance all-natural facial oil is the utter definition of luxury, and it serves as an alternative to facial oils from other luxury brands that may not care about using clean ingredients. It’s a blend of 11 separate oils, but that doesn’t make it greasy—they all perform in their own way.
