Dry Oil: How to Use It and What Benefits Does It Offer?

You can easily distinguish dry oil from regular oil. Dry oil feels lightweight and quickly absorbs into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. After using dry oil, you can confidently go about your tasks without worrying about stains. On the other hand, regular oil is thicker and heavier, taking more time to absorb into the skin.

Is dry oil natural?

Yes, dry oil is also natural. Its dryness comes from a different chemical composition. Some examples of dry oils include grape seed oil, sesame oil, camelina oil, and rosehip oil. Common regular oils include almond oil, coconut oil, castor oil, and others.

What are the benefits of dry oil?

Dry oil is often preferred by those who dislike the heaviness and long absorption time of regular oils on the skin or hair. Dry oil absorbs quickly, leaving no need to wipe off excess residue.

  • Dry oil moisturizes and helps the skin/hair retain moisture for longer periods.
  • It has a lightweight texture.
  • It is particularly suitable for combination and oily skin as it doesn't add extra heaviness.
  • Dry oil softens, visually improving the appearance of skin/hair.
  • Dry oil less frequently triggers skin resistance reactions or breakouts as it leaves no residue on the skin.
  • There's no need for preparation or extensive planning to use dry oil as it quickly absorbs into the skin/hair.

However, it's essential to mention the biggest advantage of regular oil (to avoid the impression that it's inferior to dry oil) - there's no better massage tool than regular oil, which maintains fluidity and softness for a long time during facial or body massage.
