Is oil bad for my skin?
Not all oils are bad for the skin. In fact, plant-based oils are experiencing a well-deserved revival in skincare. Do you suffer from dryness? They are first and foremost moisturizing and therefore an absolute must. Mature, aging skin takes in high levels of rejuvenating antioxidants, polyphenols and vitamins. And oily, breakout-prone skin finds a happy place as it dissolves waxy, greasy buildup and cleanses skin deep down without over-stressing. Here, Dermalogica skin experts share their best facial oils for healthy skin.
1. Kukui Nut Oil
Aleurites Moluccana Seeds
This oil is rich in fatty acids and makes dry, oily and even breakout-prone skin feel soft and balanced. You'll find it in PreCleanse.
2. Rose Oil
Rosa Damascena Flower
This soothing, antioxidant-rich oil moisturizes and firms skin while improving the appearance of aging. You'll find it in Skin Resurfacing Cleanser.
3. Argan Oil
Argania Spinosa Kernel
This vitamin-rich oil is ideal for mature, aging skin and helps prevent collagen breakdown (the trigger for wrinkles and sagging). You'll find it in Overnight Repair Serum.
4. Cranberry Seed Oil
Vaccinum Macrocarpon Seed
This oil helps to hydrate the skin and reduce the appearance of fine dry lines. You'll find it in Pure Night.
5. Evening Primrose Oil
This gentle oil is ideal for tired or sensitive skin and helps strengthen the lipid barrier. You'll find it in UltraCalming™ Serum Concentrate.
And the ultimate combination of oils for a youthful, dewy glow all day long is:
6. Camellia and Tamanu Oils
CamelliaJaponica & Calophyllum inophyllum
Phytoactives from camellia and tamanu oils help restore the skin's natural barrier.

These oils smooth visible lines and lock in essential moisture.
This moisturizing combination is found in Phyto Replenish Oil, an innovative, radiance-boosting moisturizer.
