For me, face oil sounds like an old-school treatment for your face. To be honest, I am a bit sceptical about face oil until I got introduced to Tamanu Oil and already saw betterment on my skin. After experiencing the benefit, I went through all the face oils out there that can bring different benefit with a different results.Face oil has been used by indigenous people from all across the globe to treat different types of skin problem. Here are 5 face oils you need to incorporate in your skincare routine.
1. Rosehip oil
I think this is the most popular one than other oils out there. This oil made from the bud of the rose, I feel like this smells like ooze from the tree (please correct me if you can be precise). According to mamamia.com.au rosehip oil great for cell regeneration and repair so you can expect for skin firm and plump after regularly used. If you are suffering from uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation, this is the one for you. One product that I have tried so far is the Rosehip Oil from Trilogy and I would say that this is quite hydrating, but need a little bit time to penetrate the skin so I can recommend this for normal to dry skin. Tips for me for extra hydration is to mix it with your regular moisturizer before you apply it to your face.
2. Jojoba Oil
Jojoba oil is made from the seed of the plant. This has no colour or scent to it and a lot of people swear by it. It contains vitamin E, B-complex, zinc and selenium with a higher concentration than any other oils. Not only for the face but this also good for your hair. Jojoba oil has lighter texture than rosehip oil and also friendly for sensitive skin.
3. Argan Oil
Argan oil is also my favourite because it is extremely hydrating my skin during the winter time. I also use it for my hair (mix it with coconut oil and castor oil) also my nails! I would say this qadrAllaah helped my brittle hair after bleaching. I will recommend this to all skin types out there and highly recommend for dry skin type as it is super hydrating because of the high fatty acids and Vit E.
4. Tamanu Oil
*Take a deep breath while writing this. Ok, I will expose this oil eventually. Recent being that this oil has a strong odour which very unpleasant. So, I only use this as a spot treatment to really target the skin problem such as acne scars or sun spots. This also has a dark green colour to it so be aware that this might stain your cloth if you spill it out by accident. Remember, this should be on your latest step in your routine.
Although it sounds not appealing to you, but it is the winner for me as I can see it reduced my acne scars qadrAllaah. So please, please do some research to get to know in depth about this oil. Here I share some of the benefits and you will discover more. Remember that you have to use it regularly for at least a month to see the result bi’idznillah.

5. Marula Oil
Marula oil, harvested from the nut of the marula fruit, is the lightest beauty oil in the land. Since its molecules are much smaller than those or many other oils, it absorbs easier, faster, and deeper into the skin. According to mamamia.com.au marula oil has microbial properties to help fight bacteria but at the same time will hydrate your skin. So, for those who have struggle with pimples and don’t want to dry out your skin with any harsh ingredients, this might help in shaa Allaah.
