As a dry skinned American, facial oils are a crucial component of my skin care arsenal. Today, I'm sharing seven of my favorite, pure natural oils and blends that I like to use to help keep my complexion soft and hydrated all year around.

my-favorite-facial-oils-for-dry-skin-desert-essence-jojoba-oil

Pure jojoba oil. In my opinion, everyone should have a nice, big bottle of this stuff hanging around. It isn't expensive and it is extremely versatile. I can cleanse with it, use it as a moisturizer, as a pre wash deep treatment for my hair and after washing to seal in moisture and add shine. I use jojoba oil as a cuticle oil, an after shower body oil...

I usually buy Desert Essence. It's so good and at only ten dollars for a big, four ounce bottle, it will last for quite a long time. I like to decant some of the oil from my big bottle into a smaller dropper or pump bottle then toss my big bottle in my fridge to extend the shelf life of my oil. Jojoba hardens under refrigeration and returns to it's perfect self when allowed to sit out and warm back up.

Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil. How do I love thee, pure, organic Moroccan argan oil? Let me count the ways. This rich golden oil deeply hydrates my very dry skin and nourishes my cuticles.

  4. My skin has gotten so dry maybe because my humidifier has been on the fritz. I just finished up a deluxe travel size bottle of Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate and I loved it so much I'm tempted to buy a bottle in spite of having about a million other oils. Oils are the best for sure, and I like your list.
