     *Acne may be caused by a variety of factors, from genetics to hormones. Sometimes oily skin may occur when the skin's oil glands tries to overcompensate dryness by producing more oil. By using facial oils to keep the skin moisturized, it may help regulate oil production and potentially reduce acne.

    Start with the oil that matches your skin type, and adjust accordingly! If you find that your facial oil range isn't providing enough hydration, you can try a step up, or layer on extra moisturizer over top of the oil during application.If your facial oil range is too rich and heavy, simply go down a step. 

    Everyone's skin absorbs oil at a different rate and also changes with other factors like weather, hormones, and diet, so it may require a little bit of testing before you find the perfect match! Typically, the skin produces more sebum during the summer than winter, so you may find that you will need to step up or down a facial oil range as the seasons change.

    We have a day and night facial oil for each range, with the day being lighter than the night formulation. Our day facial oils are formulated to be lighter than the night facial oils, because throughout the day, your skin will sweat and produce sebum. However, at night, your metabolic rate slows down so your skin produces less oil, thus our night facial oils are formulated to be richer and intended to be used as a sleeping mask. Our night facial oils also contain powerful plant extracts, which are more effective when given ample time to soak in overnight.
