I'm on an oil kick. When I was a teenager oil seemed like the absolute worst thing I could put on my skin. I battled the adolescent combination dry oily skin status. Now we know that oil can be great for your skin.
Probably the one you hear the most about these days is argan oil. It comes from the Moroccan argan tree and is showing up in lots of shampoos and hair care products. It's great for your skin too and I've been using it on my face. It smooths fine lines and reduces inflammation.
In the winter my skin gets super dry and then itchy. The best thing I have found is coconut oil. It's even recommended for eczema. Turns out - it's great for your hair too.
I've heard avocado and olive oil are also very effective for dry skin.
