Best Oils for a Summer Glow
You may be wondering “Why would you put oil on your skin? Doesn’t that cause breakouts and clog the pores?” Oh contraire, the more you strip away the oils on your skin with the use of harsh cleansers and scrubs, the more irritated your skin becomes by overproducing sebum. This results in the build up of bacteria and dead skin which clog the pores with blocked excess oil – also known as acne, zits, spots, pimples..you get the hint.
Oils are great for all skin types as they are rich in anti-oxidants, protecting against free radicals, have anti-ageing effects such as plumping, anti-inflammatory, repair damaged skin cells, prevent fine lines and wrinkles and are well absorbed and not greasy as what many believe. Some of the top dermatologists in the industry believe that oils are important staples in a complete skin-care routine. "Oil as we know it isn't the same as it used to be," says Dr. Jeannette Graf, renowned New York dermatologist and assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center. "Advances in the ability to refine oil have led to cosmetic-grade oils that are the consistency of water," As an added bonus for a youthful look, facial oils offer antioxidants, which are repairing, they slow down ageing and neutralise free radicals."

This Summer, you can lighten things up. If you have combination or oily skin, you can swap out heavy moisturiser for a facial oil that penetrates just as thoroughly, such as Jojoba oil which mimics your skin's sebum production. "Oils are very emollient now," says Graf. "They don't leave any residue on the skin, they absorb instantly, and they give skin a beautiful glow."
Avant oils also cater to all skin types, so whether you have combination, sensitive, or oily skin, you can easily find a fitting oil for your skin and use it year-round.
