This is a common question that I get asked. With the uprise of facial oils in Western Society, it is a good one to ask for certain. Whether you have oily, acne prone skin or dry skin, you may also be wondering about the facial oil hype and whether or not it is the right skincare solution for you. The magical panacea you have been longing for perhaps. On the flip side, I've even had some people have a complete meltdown as an adult when oil touches their face because they still remember being covered in pimples as a teenager just for coming anywhere near oil on their sensitive, hormonal faces.
If you haven't yet introduced any facial oils into your skincare ritual, I highly recommend you overcome your fears and embrace the oil. In fact, in Eastern cultures women have been using plant based oils abundantly for thousands of years. And their gorgeous, youthful complexions certainly show it.
I am all about the green. I can't eat a meal that doesn't have at least 50% of my plate full of leafy greens. I drink my greens in smoothies, start my morning with moringa powder (yes even before my coffee), mix greens into my omelettes, and eat at least two salads a day. I even grow my own sprouts.
