What's the best oil for your skin type?


Like It On Top offers a range of skin and body care products made from only natural and vegan ingredients. We offer face oils for all skin types. Here are our recommendations based on whether you have dry skin, normal to combination skin, oily skin, acne prone skin, hyperpigmentation or mature skin:

Dry Skin

The best face oils for dry skin include avocado oil, sweet almond oil, apricot oil and camellia oil; with essential oils such as lavender oil, geranium oil, jasmine oil, rosehip oil and cedarwood seed oil. You can find sweet almond oil in Sustain (oil cleansing protection) and Polish (body scrub protection). Sweet almond oil contains omega-3 fatty acids to heal acne and other facial scars and may be used to treat eczema, psoriasis, improve acne and dissolve excess oil on the skin.

You can find rosehip oil in Sustain (oil cleansing protection). Our body products that also contain rosehip oil include Protect (multipurpose body protection) and Dirty (body scrub protection). Rosehip oil is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants to regenerate skin cells, reduce scars and fine lines. The combination of sweet almond oil, avocado oil and rosehip oil in Sustain (oil cleansing protection) make this facial oil super nourishing, and therefore most suited to dry or sensitive skin.

You can find jojoba oil and grapeseed oil in Filth (dirt cleansing protection). Jojoba oil is naturally gentle and non-irritating, making it perfect for basically every skin type; it balances oily skin, soothes sensitive skin, hydrates dry skin and helps can even be used on acne and breakouts. Grapeseed oil has anti-inflammatory properties and works to tone, hydrate, and moisturise without clogging pores. 

You can find glycerin in Filth (dirt cleansing protection). Glycerin is a natural humectant, which acts as a moisturising agent to pull water into the outer layer of your skin from deeper levels of your skin and the air.

You can find argan oil in Stroke (double cleansing protection) and Sustain (oil cleansing protection). Argan oil is rich and soothing due to its high vitamin E properties. It is also an anti-oxidant that helps alleviate skin damage, dark spots and fine lines. We recommend massaging it into the face every morning or night as part of your skincare routine.

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation can affect all skin types and may be caused by acne, hormonal changes and physical damage to skin. It is caused by an overproduction of melanin, which in turn leads to darker patches of skin and/or uneven skin tone. The best facial oils to treat hyperpigmentation include tea tree oil, lavender oil, geranium oil, frankincense oil, neroli oil, chamomile oil, clary sage oil, turmeric oil, and rosemary essential oil. For hyperpigmentation we recommend using Stroke (double cleansing protection), which contains turmeric, an anti-inflammatory to reduce scars, heal wounds and calm the skin; and citric acid which exfoliates top layers of skin to brighten, shrink pores, treat acne and correct dark spots. We also recommend using Fortify (toning protection) as a cleansing tonic, which contains rose water and citric acid, which contains antioxidant properties for brighter skin.


 

Mature Skin

The best face oils for mature skin include rosehip oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, tamanu oil, with essential oils such as rose oil, lavender oil, jasmine oil and geranium oil. Rosehip oil is renowned as THE anti-ageing oil!
