The Best Beauty Oils Of 2021
From Augustinus Bader to Sunday Riely and Huda Kattan’s Wishful, beauty oils have become every skincare maven’s must-have product.
When you add an oil to the end of your skincare routine, it not only locks in any lost moisture, but also regulates and prevents the overproduction of sebum and breakouts. Face oils also mimic your skin’s own natural oils and replace any lost hydration following any abrasive exfoliating or acid peels and toning.
In 2021, beauty oils are essential, and these are the top 5 oils for all skin types (and budgets) to try now…
