Oils can provide rich nourishment, lubrication and protection for your skin. By themselves oils do not hydrate, so technically they are not moisturizers. Yet at times, when hydration is not an issue or when skin is deficient, thin, damaged or not producing sufficient sebum, all you may need is the application of a little oil. Oils can act as moisture barriers when applied to a damp face that has been cleansed and rinsed.
