Everyone knows that the winter months can mean dry, dull, lack-luster skin and that a good moisturizer is your best friend. But instead of reaching for a chemical-laden cream or lotion, we recommend you check out one of these incredibly rich facial oils. We know it seems counter-intuitive, but trust us: facial oils don’t make your skin oily and won’t make you break out. In fact, even those of us with combination or oily complexions will get radiant results. This is how it works: Plant and seed oils are chock full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids that heal thirsty, flakey skin and encourage cell regeneration. Just use a couple of drops of this liquid gold in the morning or evening, and your skin will go from blah to beautiful, with not a shiny spot in sight.
