We love facial oils at Natural Supply Co; they are packed with natural and organic ingredients which will pack a punch, helping to deliver antioxidants to the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimise the appearance of pigmentation, boost skin plumpness or help fight acne. It just depends on the oil you choose to use.
Here, we've shared three facial oils which are perfect for those suffering with dry, flaky or lacklustre skin. Add one of these into your routine and they'll help to transform your skin from dry and uncomfortable, to glowing and radiant!
For severely dry and dehydrated skin, try Argan Oil to restore your gorgeous lit-from-within glow!
Argan oil, extracted from the kernels of the Moroccan argan tree, is well-known for its incredible anti-ageing and skin reviving properties; it's also referred to as liquid gold!
Thanks to its high concentrations of powerful antioxidants, vitamin E and essential fatty acids, Argan oil promotes collagen synthesis (improving skin’s elasticity), replenishes skin's protective lipid barrier and hydrates the skin deep below the epidermis. By preserving the integrity of the lipid barrier of the skin, argan oil prevents moisture loss and can help the skin to glow.
Argan oil is a relatively lightweight oil, with the ability to penetrate the skin and deliver important nutrients where they are needed the most.

While rosehip oil is often recognised for its remarkably high vitamin C content, it also offers incredible moisturising abilities, making it a fab pick for dry skin that's lost its vitality.
Vitamin C plays a key role in the production of collagen within our skin, brightening the complexion and helping to diminish unwanted spots and blemishes. Rosehip oil also contains essential fatty acids, which help to replenish, hydrate and protect the skin, giving you an instant, radiant glow. Yes please! It's also believed that rosehip oil has a retinol-like result when applied to the skin - without any of the side effects of retinol, like sun sensitivity - which means it's the perfect choice for keeping wrinkles away.

Coconut oil offers a natural all-in-one solution for dry skin. This little beauty hydrates skin, and also forms a thin protective layer on the skin's surface to prevent water from evaporating, and essentially locking moisture in. This makes it a great option for providing extra barrier properties for the skin.
Coconut oil melts into skin quickly and easily, with a soft and smooth finish. As a non-fragrant oil, it is suitable for those with very sensitive skin as well.
