Reorganize your top shelf pronto, because something missing! There are so many amazing reasons why you should include oil-free skincare in your daily regimen. To start, let’s get taboo out of the way: oil-free isn’t only for the ‘oily’ skin types. Plus, oil-free skincare won’t add extra shine or ‘grease’ to your skin, are less likely to clog pores and are characteristically light in consistency.
Oil-Free Is Good For All Skin Types
There are many different reasons to use oil-free products but the most obvious is to avoid adding extra oil onto skin. We might recommend this type of skincare to combination and acne prone skin, however those with dry skin can still benefit greatly from oil-free. How? A cleanser. A lightweight oil-free cleanser is a great way to deep clean your skin. You can effortlessly dissolve makeup, dirt and oil off your face. Cleansing is critical, it’s one of Dr. Gross skincare orders.
Oil-Free Absorbs Seriously Fast
Myth buster: You can find a moisturizer than isn’t thick or heavy but still be as beneficial as those industrial face creams. Oil-free formulations tend to absorb much faster beyond sitting on the surface of skin, like many oil based products do. Why? Because formulas with ingredients like hyaluronic acid bring intense hydration to skin without clogging pores. Science says so.
Oil-Free Can Plump Your Skin
Hydration is key for a younger looking complexion. With a lack of hydration, our skin becomes visibly saggy, dull and ‘tired’ skin due to a decline in collagen. And, we all know collagen is a critical structural protein responsible for keeping the skin plump and taut. By choosing a mask loaded with hyaluronic acid, a gentle exfoliating system packed with antioxidants, or serum rich in vitamin C, they are exactly what you need to promote the formation of collagen and as a result, restore radiance and healthier plumped-up skin.
