The Oily Skin Paradox: Why Oil-Free Skincare May Not Always Be the Best Choice.

Hey my beauts!

It's been a while since we broke down a skincare myth and here's one about oily skin and oil-free products. Many people believe that if you have oily skin, you should stick to oil-free products to prevent breakouts. But..... Not all oils are bad for your skin! Some oils, like jojoba or argan oil, can actually help balance your skin's natural oil production and keep it hydrated without clogging your pores.

The "oil-free" label doesn't always mean better. These products might still contain harsh chemicals or fragrances that can irritate your skin and cause more trouble.

It's all about finding the right balance for your skin. Oily skin can sometimes be a result of dehydration, so stripping it of all oils won't do you any favours.

Remember, everyone's skin is different. What works for one person might not work for you, so pay attention to what your skin needs and find products that suit you best.

Overall, don't just fall for the "oil-free" hype. Focus on natural ingredients and keep your skin healthy and happy.
