Information & Advice
The secret’s out: oils are big news in beauty. The surprise? They work wonders on all skin types. Here’s why you can benefit from oiling up – whatever your skin type.
Imagine facial oils to be pore-clogging, grease-giving products for dry
skin only? Think again. “Oils are misunderstood,” says Urban Retreat
skincare guru Anastasia Achilleos, who uses oils daily on her own skin
and her clients’. “People believe they clog skin and worsen oily skin,
but good quality oils can help improve the texture and firmness of the
skin, help reach the areas a cream cannot reach and improve hydration.
They can be anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory, so
blemish-prone clients shouldn’t be afraid of them. Plus oil on oil
works, so oily skin can use them in the evening to balance the skin.”
