Even those with oily or shiny skin could benefit from using facial oil. 'Believe it or not, the right oil can rebalance the skin's natural oil content for a noticeably more radiant complexion,' says celebrity facialist Nichola Joss. 'Over time, oils can help clear pores of excess sebum and can reduce inflammation and irritation.'
As well as its anti-ageing properties, a few drops of facial oil can give dry, matte foundations a new dewy lease of life, saving you money on products in the long run. Another top tip is to dab a drop or two on top of your foundation and blusher, to give a youthful sheen to cheekbones. Our favourite for midday touch ups is Decléor Aromessence Néroli, this glowy soothing elixir melts into make-up without fuss.
Did we mention that a little goes a long way? Thanks to its super-hydrating formula, a good facial oil can be used almost anywhere - as a lip balm, hair oil, to nourish cuticles or even soften elbows and knees. It's a real multitasking product.
