When it comes to oil, most people don’t like the sticky and greasy feeling that comes with it. This is why they even skip applying oil to their tresses. Are you one of them? If yes, sit tight ‘cause we’re about to convince you to use oil on your face this winter. Yup, you read that right! Before you close the tab or hit back, hear us out. Believe us when we say this, your skin will thank you for it.
Many moisturisers and lotions are infused with oil, that’s how they keep the moisture locked in your skin. While some oils can make your skin greasy, using the right one can do wonders, especially during winter. Scroll down to find out how.

01. The antidote to dry and flaky skin
Chapped lips, dry and flaky skin is a common problem during winter. Most moisturisers nourish the skin on the surface as they can’t penetrate deeper. This leaves your skin thirsty and dry in a few hours. Applying a pea-sized amount of the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum at night will give you soft, glowing and nourished skin in the morning. This lightweight oil gets easily absorbed into the skin and is suitable for all skin types.
02. Bye-bye wrinkles
Dry and dehydrated skin is more prone to premature ageing. If you have started noticing signs of ageing on your skin, we recommend adding a facial oil to your skincare routine. Dabbing a little bit of grapeseed oil at night will tackle those wrinkles and fine lines without making your skin greasy.
03. Strengthens natural barrier
One of the reasons why you have multiple skin problems is because your skin’s natural barrier has weakened over time. Pollution, UV rays and lifestyle habits are to be blamed for this. Using an antioxidant-rich face oil such as rosehip will repair and strengthen your skin’s barrier as well as keep toxins out.
04. Soothes rashes
As the skin gets dry during winter, infections and rashes become far too common. Using an anti-inflammatory oil on your skin will help soothe rashes and prevent them from coming back. Oils like argan, coconut and marula are excellent for irritation and dry skin issues like rosacea.
05. Balances oil production
Those with oily skin usually steer clear of any type of oil because they already have enough on their face, right? Well, guess what, one of the reasons your skin is producing excess oil is because it lacks moisture. Using a non-greasy formula like the Dermalogica Phyto Replenishing Oil can get rid of excess oil on your face and shield against free radical damage.
