Creams VS Oils: What works better for your skin?

When it comes to taking care of your skin you leave no stone unturned, trying different products to make it look more beautiful than it was before. You’ve been using face creams right from the time when you were kids but face oils are having a major moment lately.

Like many others if you too have been constantly shifting between creams and oils and are unable to find a solution to this problem, we’re here to put an end to this debate.


Dry skin

Mature skin

Just because you have dry skin does not mean you can go ahead and opt for any oil. This skin type easily gets rashes and is even sensitive to some natural ingredients. A soothing cream with gentle ingredients is your best bet, if you do opt for oils, go for marula or coconut oil that reduce redness and hydrate irritated skin.


Oily skin

Mature skin

Who said oily skinned beauties cannot use face oils? Some oils are light weight in nature and are easily absorbed by the skin. Since oily skin is prone to breakouts, oils like jojoba, tea tree and rosehip are recommended. While investing in a light weight face cream, look for similar ingredients which sooth your skin, while also controlling shine.


Normal skin

Mature skin

Here’s a secret no one told you. If you have normal skin mix a few drops of argan, jojoba or marula oil to your daily moisturiser and let your skin enjoy the benefits of both. Since your skin can naturally adjust to the changing weather you get the option of combining both.


Acne prone skin

Mature skin

Acne prone skin is sensitive and already has over-active oil glands. Thankfully you can still use oils like argan and tea tree to kill acne-causing bacteria on your skin. However, acne is also a way through which your skin is conveying that you need to drink a lot more water.


Mature skin

Mature skin

Mature skin depends on external factors to help repair itself and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Argan oil works wonders for mature skin, in fact using argan oil from a young age delays the signs of aging. We trust the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum that absorbs within minutes of application and offers super nourished and radiant skin. You can also add a few drops of this oil to your night cream and apply it every night to get maximum benefits.
