In any DIY facial product you will find the need for a carrier oil. These oils help to disperse the active ingredients and offer their own health benefits. Below is a list of the most common carrier oils and details as to which skin type each oil compliments. In order to find the best oil for your skin, try doing a patch test. Apply a small amount of the oil along your jaw line for a few days and see how your skin reacts.
Argon Oil and Jojoba Oil: great for dry, aging, oily to normal or acne prone skin.
Apricot Kernel Oil: great for any skin type, but especially for normal, dry or aging skin.

Avocado Oil: great for dry and aging skin.
