Dry oil? Can oil be dry? How sway? When I first heard about dry oil I was intrigued because what is such thing as dry oil. Isn’t oil supposed to be...wet? So I thought!
Now, I love dry oil. I apply my black radiance dry oil moisturizer before my primer and my makeup. Although my skin is a combination of oily and dry, the dry oil keeps it moisturized and hydrated for all the powders and creams I use (Makeup).
In short, dry oil is a very light oil that is instantly absorbed by your skin as opposed to the other oils that lay on top of your skin as protective layers. Dry oil is lightweight and non-greasy which makes it great for oily skin tones too. It also adds a luminous shine to your skin so you can use it for any time of the day. You can use it for your skin, your hair and nails.
For your overall skin, the best time to use dry oil is right after the shower when your skin is damp and ready to receive any moisturizer or treatment you may give it.
Some popular and effective dry oil are sunflower, avocado, borage, rosehip, squalene, sesame, and grapeseed. Also, whenever you are choosing a dry oil, check out the ingredients and make sure that the first five ingredients are either of those. The first ingredient of my Black Radiance dry oil moisturizer is sunflower which I love. A few seconds after I apply it, my skin takes it all in and I am left with a smooth and moisturized skin.
