Cooler days are coming, which means we should prepare our skin for the seasonal changes! Making alterations to your skincare regime, coinciding with the shift in weather, can help your skin look and feel great all year round.

Facial oils are a great way to add an extra boost of hydration to the skin and they can be particularly beneficial for those with dry or mature skin types. They can also help to balance out oil production in those with oily or combination skin types.
So, why use facial oil? These beauty facial oils help give you a luminous appearance and can keep you looking moist and ready to enjoy those crispy autumnal walks. There are lots of different facial oils on the market so it’s important to find one that contains ingredients that are beneficial for your specific skin type.
“Argan and rose oils have anti-inflammatory benefits and are great for aging skin,” Dr. Zeichner says. “Tea tree or moringa seed oils are appropriate for people with acne-prone skin, while those with dry skin should look for hydrating avocado or sandalwood oil.” He also advises marula or kiwi oils for combination skin, since they are universal successes.
Even those with oily skin can benefit from the use of a facial oil, some oils can help balance the production of natural skin oil. Dr. Shah states you can “hydrate while balancing the skin’s oil production, using Kalahari melon oil and jojoba oil,”.
