It may sounds crazy for those of us with oily skin. The theory is that applying oil to your face will trick your face into believing there is enough oil, stopping it from producing more.
There is a method to the madness. Don’t begin applying oil based makeup or skin care or any kind of oil at any time. I recommend using Josie Maran‘s 100% Argan Oil at night, found at Sephora, under your moisturizer or by itself. It comes in a light and regular version.
Argan oil has benefits extending beyond fighting oil. It contains vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids wonderful for soothing skin, minimizing scars and anti-aging. Josie Maran’s people call argan oil the ‘ super food’ for the skin, hair and entire body.
I got a sample from Sephora and I will be going back for the real deal. My sister and cousin who have oily skin absolutely love it and swear by it. Over all reviews I’ve researched have been positive. However, if you have very sensitive skin and are acne prone skin, I would do a patch test first.
