We’re guessing you’ve already heard that beauty oils are all the rage these days. Many have extolled their benefits, with some even going as far as calling them miracle workers. If you’re wondering if beauty oils are worth the hype, the answer is a resounding yes. Oils are loaded with essential nutrients, fatty acids and antioxidants, which are basically the rockstars of anti-aging and preventative skin care. They add a protective layer to your skin (which helps lock down moisture) and restore its natural lipid barrier, making it easier to absorb other products. And if you’re the type who likes immediate results, you’ll love that beauty oils add an instant softness, silkiness and healthy glow to your skin.

As effective as face oils are for nourishing parched skin and removing stubborn makeup residue, oils are also good for many other things—whether it’s purifying clogged pores, relieving scalp irritations, calming your senses before you sleep, improving the appearance of cellulite, strengthening weak nails or even taming a wild and bushy beard!
