We’ve all been told at some point in our lives that we should keep oil far away from our skin--whether it had been a beauty counter rep telling you, your doctor or your mama! It didn’t matter if it was oil splattering up from fried chicken pan, the natural oils we find in our skin, or organic oils. To us women, all kinds were synonymous with “no bueno.” Because oil = breakouts, right?

Not necessarily.

The key is to use plant-based oils and the major key (insert DJ Khaled voice here) in utilizing oil is finding the best one for your skin type. In this case, we’re talking acne prone skin. Contrary to what we were taught, there are oils that unclog pores, treat and actually fight acne. Many types of facial oils bring about a glow (not grease), moisturize and even help with skin discoloration due to their vitamin and antioxidant richness.

Times are "a-changin". Even Sephora’s now claiming we can fight oil with oil!

Here are 10 types of oils that’ll help you do just that:

There’s some sort of magic in this formula because the makeup slides right off. The trick is to apply to your dry face using dry hands. Watch as your makeup magically disappears. And if you care about the Earth and animals and such this company never tests their products on animals. #NewFave

      Cetaphil is like the holy grail. But you really have to do trail and error when it comes to skin care.
