In an era when 20-step skincare routines might be the reason why some millennials like me won’t be able to retire comfortably (but at least we'll have nice skin!), it’s important to consider why you should clear some space on your cabinet shelves for some face oil. If your skin tends to be oily already, adding this step to your daily routine might sound counterintuitive. However, it actually helps prevent your skin from producing the excess oil that often causes your pores to clog and triggers breakouts.

With this, face oil has promising benefits for all skin types and has many purposes. It helps retain moisture, promotes your natural glow, and acts as a blanket to protect your skin from harmful pollutants and free radicals (atoms that damage cells and cause your complexion to age prematurely). And since the benefits of natural beauty products (or clean beauty if you may) are backed up by scientific research and seem to multiply themselves by the day, we've compiled a list of the ten best natural face oils for smooth, radiant, and healthy-looking skin. 

This is the label’s best-selling moisturizer, and it makes sense why. This product locks moisture in (great for winter weather) without clogging the pores. Apply it before going to bed and you will wake up with fresh, nourished skin and ready to take on the day (and the cold winter weather).

This product is not an empty promise; it goes beyond what you would ever expect it to do. Sunday Riley’s rich-in-antioxidants face oil helps protect the skin from cell-damaging environmental factors such as pollution, UV sunlight, and cold weather. It also instantly leaves your complexion looking flawless—a tiny drop also works as the perfect base before applying foundation.

This oil will provide the royal treatment. Literally, since Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton both swear by it. Using a natural blend of 14 plant-based oils, such as the anti-inflammatory Caribbean coral extract, this magic in a bottle helps to treat redness-prone skin.
