Benefits of plant-based face oils even for oily skin

by Kelli Parisian March 06, 2020

Plant-Based Face Oils are essential for all skin types - including oily skin

While it may seem counterintuitive, using a face oil or moisturizer is exactly what oily skin craves. Some believe you should overwash, over-exfoliate and only use water-based skincare products for their oily skin.

The Problem with this thinking is...

Oily skin needs to be properly hydrated too, not overwashed. The urge to scrub away excess oil is strong. Aggressively getting rid of the natural sebum, or oil, in your skin can actually signal your body to produce even more oils.

Using anti-oxidant rich plant-based face oils can help balance oily skin. 

Combination and dry skin love face oils too  

A properly formulated face oil will keep combo/dry skin properly hydrated and help keep skin protected from harmful pollutants. 

Face oils assist your skin in perfect-aging no matter what your skin type is

Touted as anti-aging powerhouses, using these skin-nourishing oils can help to slow down the clock. 

Camellia Oil - a natural source of antioxidants and vitamins A and B, notable for its plant-based anti-aging benefits like improving skin elasticity, and assisting in preventing the formation of fine lines. 

Evening Primrose - rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and essential fatty acids, Evening Primrose oil is known for potent levels of antioxidants that help to neutralize free radicals and protect skin from oxidation (think wrinkles).

Squalane - Plant-based (not to be confused with Squalene found in shark livers), is light-weight and extraordinarily moisturizing. Derived from olives, the molecular structure of squalane is close to the skin’s own, it has the ability to penetrate deep into the pores where it targets your skincare concerns at a cellular level.

Squalane oil fights off skin-damaging free radicals that contribute to the signs of aging. It balances oil production, providing just enough moisture to keep the skin clear and healthy.

These are just a few of the oils known for their affinity for perfect-aging 

When combined with other essential oils such as Rose Absolute, Helichrysum, Neroli, and Elemi -- you've arrived at the perfect synergy for keeping skin, moisturized, glowing, and youthful-looking longer. 

Facial oils can set you on the path toward a gorgeous complexion whether your skin is oily, combination, or dry.

See what people are saying!

My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
