After a long, sticky summer of avoiding anything heavy or greasy for my skin and hair, I always seem to be caught off-guard when the temperatures suddenly drop and my skin is desperately thirsty and my hair is a frizzy mess. Of course, with winter still (thankfully!) being many months away, it’s not exactly time to pull out thick creams and heavy hair masks; rather, during transitional times of year I turn my focus to light oils to care for everything from my flaky skin to my frizzy split ends and even my cuticles.
“Light oils” sounds like an oxymoron, right? But, I promise you it isn’t. As long as you’re choosing products made with plant-based oils, rather than ingredients like mineral oil (which is a derivative of petroleum), your skin and hair will soak it right up with no heavy or greasy residue. Here, I’ve rounded up some favorite oil-based products to keep you nourished and glowing from head to toe this fall.
