What oil is best for your face: The request could not be satisfied
The best face oils to add to your skin care routine
I remember when Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil first launched. I was working at a magazine at the time, and the skin care oil trend was blowing up — all the mainstream brands were clamoring to get one on the market.
The Bobbi Brown version felt lovely. However, there was absolutely zero chance I was going to put it on my face. Oil on my acne-prone skin? That seemed like a terrible idea.
It wasn’t until I came across Sundari Essential Oil for Oily Skin that I dared to try a skin care oil for myself. This felt different since the formula is extremely light, the instructions call for only two drops (how much damage could that do?) and the website explains that peppermint helps control skin’s oil production. Of course I was hesitant the first night I used it, but when I woke up to glowing, even skin I knew it was the oil — and I haven’t looked back since.
Despite the popularity of face oils, I realize that there are still plenty of people who are as intimidated as I was. Here’s the key: You have to figure out which face oil is right for your skin, and start slowly with just a drop or two. These seven skin care oils are some of the most popular, and they come highly recommended by experts. Read on to find out which one you should try.
1. Best face oil for acne: Tea tree oil
Even though I was afraid of face oils, I remember using The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil as a blemish spot treatment when I was in high school. It feels and smells more like an astringent than an oil, so it doesn’t have the same ick factor that turned me off with the others. And tea tree oil really works: Studies have found that five percent tea tree oil is as effective at treating acne as five percent benzoyl peroxide. Miami dermatologist Leslie Baumann recommends tea tree oil as a gentle, natural alternative to harsher acne treatments.
- 1. The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, $10, Amazon
Also available at Ulta.
This oil contains 15 percent tea tree oil concentrate and helps to target breakouts, remove impurities and mattify skin, according to the brand.
- 2. Burt’s Bees Herbal Complexion Stick, $8, Walmart
Also available at Target.
Not only does this product contain tea tree oil and juniper oil, it also comes in an easy to apply stick that is sized to be able to be easily stashed away in a purse.
2. Best face oil for oily skin: Grapeseed oil
If you have oily skin — even if you don’t have acne — you’re probably as averse to oils as I was. In the middle of the afternoon, I need blotting papers or pressed powder — definitely not more oil on my already shiny forehead. But grapeseed oil (like peppermint oil, which I mentioned earlier) can actually help regulate your natural oil production, says holistic skin care expert Cecilia Wong. Plus, it’s packed with antioxidants, including skin-brightening vitamin C. Still not convinced? “I often tell people who are interested in skin care oils to start using it on your body and if you like the results, try it on your face,” Wong said.
- Caudalie Vine[Activ] Overnight Detox Oil, $50, Macy’s
Also available at Sephora.
With more than 10,000 “loves” on Sephora, this oil is made up of grapeseed oil to regenerate and moisturize, carrot, lavender and white sandalwood oils to detoxify and almond oil, rosemary extract and neroli essential oil to fight fatigue.
3. Best face oil for anti-aging: Argan oil
When I think about Argan oil, supermodel and skin care guru Josie Maran immediately comes to mind. Her entire line is based around this miracle ingredient — and her perfect complexion is proof of how well the stuff works. Argan oil also very rare and expensive — so it’s a good thing that you only need a tiny amount for it to be effective. “If you see 1 ounce of Argan for $15, that’s not right,” said Wong. She adds that cheaper versions may have added ingredients that make them less effective.
- Josie Maran 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil, $40, Amazon
Also available for $48 at Sephora.
Argan oil is said to smooth fine lines and wrinkles while moisturizing skin. This oil contains a high concentration of vitamin E and fatty acids, which are more stable in sunlight than other antioxidants — so it’s great to wear during the day.
4. Best face oil for skin repair: Black currant oil
I asked Wong what she would recommend for a client whose skin had been traumatized in some way — like after a laser treatment, too much time in the sun or even windburn from skiing. Her answer? Black currant oil. It’s her favorite reparative treatment because it’s rich in fatty acids and has anti-inflammatory properties. It even works on eczema.
- Botanical Beauty Black Currant Seed Oil, $18, Amazon
It’s loaded with fatty acids to help heal itchy, irritated skin.
5. Best face oil for sensitive skin: Chamomile oil
The same way you can drink chamomile tea to relax, you can use chamomile oil to calm your skin. It soothes redness and irritation in a matter of seconds. “It has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that make it ideal for patients with rosacea,” says Baumann.
Just be sure to dab some on your wrist and wear it for a day to make sure you don’t have an allergic reaction, she says, and be especially careful with organic versions. Since organic ingredients are treated with fewer chemicals, they’re often growing alongside weeds and other allergens, which means organic essential oils are more likely to have traces of those allergens than conventionally farmed varieties. The result? They’re more likely to cause allergic reactions on the skin.
- Darphin Chamomile Aromatic Care, $75, Nordstrom
This oil is made up of pure chamomile, sandalwood, sage and lavender oils. Applying five drops each night is supposed to reduce redness, irritations and blotchiness.
6. Best face oil for discoloration: Rosehip seed oil
Mally Steves Chakola, the founder of M. Steves Skincare, first realized the healing power of rose hip seed oil after applying it to an 18-year-old scar for two weeks — it faded significantly. She recommends using it as a boost for your moisturizer — just mix in a few drops before you apply. This is a great option, especially if you’re skeptical about putting oil directly onto your face.
- 1. Pura D’Or Organic Rosehip Seed Oil, $13, Amazon
Rosehip seed oil is know for protecting your skin as well as increasing cell turnover. You can also use this on your hair to help with dry scalp problems.
- 2. Kate Blanc Rosehip Seed Oil, $13, Amazon
With more than 2,600 reviews on Amazon and 4.6 stars, this organic formula might help lessen acne scars, according to the product description.
7. Best face oil for dry skin: Olive oil
We’ve all heard stories about women in Italy bathing in the stuff — and I’m sure they have beautiful skin — but using olive oil as a face oil is the scariest of all. I may have become an oil enthusiast, but I’ve never been able to use this one for anything other than cooking and salad dressing.
However, Baumann loves extra virgin olive oil for patients with very dry skin. (Note the word “very.”) She says you can buy it at the grocery store — just be sure to look for the term “first cold press” on the bottle. (These formulas are higher in antioxidants than other varieties.)
- Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, $15, Amazon
Not only is it super moisturizing, olive oil is also rich in compounds like polyphenols, squalene and fatty acids — all of which are meant to be nourishing and help fight aging, according to the brand.

7 Benefits of Moisturizing With Face Oils — Why You Should Use Facial Oils
If the thought of putting oils on your face brings really bad breakouts to mind, think again. Ancient Egyptians kept their skin vibrant and flawless with Moringa Oil. And this (very) old-school beauty secret is making a pretty big comeback right now. In fact, according to top dermatologists, facial oils may be that missing step in your beauty routine.
The key is to recognize that not all facial oils are the same, says Dr. Rebecca Tung, chair of the Division of Dermatology at Loyola University of Chicago. She adds, “Some can nourish the skin, while others can be potential irritants — so choose wisely.” And before you start a regimen, you should always check with your dermatologist. Keep reading to see why oils should be the next page in your beauty playbook — and which ones could work best for you.
1. They can reduce your wrinkles.
Too much unprotected ultraviolet light is a set-up for free radical damage — and that means wrinkles and sunspots galore. Some facial oils are packed with antioxidants, which prevent further aging, says Dr. Tung, so if you’re affected by sun damage and dryness, she recommends looking for products containing primrose oil or those with a vitamin E base, such as Argan oil.
If your skin tends to be on the shiny side and you’re nervous about trying oils, Dr. Allison Hanlon, dermatologist in Nashville, Tennessee, prefers a dab of grape seed oil because it’s anti-aging, light, non-greasy, and beautifully fragranced. After washing your face at night, dabbing a tiny bit of your preferred oil to the forehead, each cheek, nose, and chin can be beneficial.
2. They’re good for dry skin.
Plummeting temps and cranked-up heaters suck moisture straight from the skin. Oils are the ideal antidote to dry, flaky skin and rough, rosy cheeks — and they can be much more effective at moisturizing than your standard over-the-counter lotions and creams. For softer skin and hair, Dr. Hanlon recommends applying a pea-sized amount of coconut oil to your driest areas. Almond oil is packed with hydrating omega-3 fatty acids, making it is a good choice for sensitive skin.
3. They really protect your skin.
Because oils are lipophilic, they can penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water and other moisturizing goodness in, while keeping toxins and other bad stuff out. Some oils also help to fortify and strengthen our own natural skin barrier. This is especially important for big city dwellers who need extra protection against pollutants and smog, a known source of unwanted wrinkles. On a cold winter day, using a product with rosehip seed oil, which is highly concentrated with antioxidant ingredients, would be a definite win-win.
4. They’re the perfect primer for makeup.
Oils like mandarin and pumpkin seed zip through the top of skin at lightening quick speed, quickly settling comfortably into the areas that need hydrating the most. This gives an immediate plumping effect and creates the perfect canvas for your makeup — and the smoother your skin, the better your whole face will look.
5. They can shrink enlarged pores.
Higher-end oils such as macadamia, jojoba, and camellia actually pull out grime and fats from pores, making them appear smaller and less noticeable. But be warned: The proof is in the formula. Unfortunately, oils readily available at the grocery store can give you clogged, puffed-out pores, so consult with your dermatologist before trying just any old oil.
6. They can calm down rashes.
Many oils have anti-inflammatory properties as well, helping to quell irritated skin. Argan and yangu oils are ideal for irritations that follow use of popular anti-aging products such as retinol or alpha hydroxy acids. Geranium oil is also fabulous at reducing redness from rosacea, as well.
7. They’re great for banishing zits.
Believe it or not, tea tree oil is a pretty darn good zit zapper. And no, you won’t get more pimples if you use oils. We aren’t talking about slathering Crisco on your face, after all.
“Using jojoba oil in moderation can actually reduce oil production, making a great addition to your topical acne regimens, which can be drying,” says Dr. Tung. Facial oils are now made in very cosmetically elegant, light formulations that are excellent for layering and everyday use. Just keep in mind that a small amount of the right product goes a long way. Too much of anything is never a good idea.

How to Pick a Face Oil For Your Skin Type
Slathering your face in oil — the kind you buy, not the kind that accumulates on your nose every day come lunchtime — may seem counterintuitive, but oils aren’t just for dry skin. They’re actually one of the best tools to combat a wind-ravaged complexion in the winter, even for the oily-skinned among us.
As celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas puts it, “The more modern approach to skin is to use oil to our advantage: fight oil with oil. ” If this seems at odds with conventional wisdom, you’re not wrong. “Skincare for so many years was all about stripping the skin with glycolics and retinols,” Vargas says. Only in the last ten years has the idea that all skin types need hydration gained traction.
“Oils have become increasingly popular because they provide a natural way to take care of your skin,” explains Dr. Joshua Zeichner, Director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research for the Department of Dermatology at The Mount Sinai Hospital. “It is a myth that you cannot use oil-based products to treat oily skin. In fact, oil dissolves oil and can be quite effective in treating oily skin,” he says, noting they also have hydrating properties that make them appropriate for dry and sensitive skin, too.
Not all oils are equal though. When choosing a product to best suit your skin type and needs, you’ll want to keep in mind the difference between essential oils and base oils (sometimes called carrier oils). Essential oils are highly-concentrated plant extracts, distilled from the leaves and flowers of a plant (think geranium or jasmine. ) Base oils, like jojoba or sweet almond oil, on the other hand, are extracted from the seeds, nuts or fruit of a plant. Base oils typically comprise the bulk of a face oil formulas. Essential oils should not be applied directly to the skin in most cases and are typically diluted by a base oil.
Before I move on to specific product recommendations by skin type, a few quick tips for first-time oil users, per my own internet research:
1. If you’re totally new to oils, try one as a nighttime treatment.
Oils make great nighttime treatments, especially if you’re hesitant to put one on in the morning before leaving the house. Skin is working harder at self-repair while we sleep, making night a prime time for skin to heal and absorb an oil’s essential nutrients.
2. If you have ultra-dry skin, or want to continue using a specific cream, try layering your oil underneath the cream.
Creams are occlusive, which means they form a barrier on the skin. They “lock in” the nutrients contained in an oil.
3. Pay attention to the weight of the base oil.
The base oil is the main ingredient — the formula’s anchor ingredient. Oily and combination skin do better with lightweight oils like grape seed or jojoba oil, while drier skin types can handle heavier oils like avocado or olive oil.
Beyond those basics, there are oils tailored to every skin type and concern. A beginner’s guide below, including a tip, a specific recommendation, and a few others on the market that fit the bill.
Tip: For sensitive skin, look for products that exclude essential oils. While they are indeed “natural,” they can also be common irritants, which will only make matters worse for sensitive skin.
Try: Peet Rivko’s face oil. As Founder Joanna Peet explains: “Our Balancing Face Oil was designed with the most sensitive skin in mind and does not include any essential oils or nut oils. It’s lightweight and doesn’t leave a greasy finish like some heavier plant oils can. ”
Tip: For combination skin, get yourself an oil that does both — one that is anti-inflammatory (to help treat problem areas), and hydrating.
Try: In formulating her Line F Oil for combination skin, brand founder Susanne Kaufmann paid special attention to oils that do not clog pores. She looked for oils high in unsaturated fatty acids, which she explains are “very similar to the natural lipid film of our skin and thus, easily penetrates its top layers.” In this product, vitamins E and A combine with plant extracts to send the skin the signal to regenerate.
Tip: Oily, acne-prone skin benefits from oils that are lightweight, soothing and noncomedogenic. Look for purifying ingredients like tea tree oil, coconut oil, and lavender oil.
Try: Votary’s Clarifying Oil, made with a base of oat, rice bran and peach is just that, plus the added essential oils of clary sage, bergamot and rosemary serve as natural acne-busters.
Tip: Dry skin benefits from rich, nourishing oils. “Heavier oils help coat the surface of the skin to help retain hydration,” Dr. Zeichner says. Look for rich ingredients like avocado oil, olive oil, and cocoa oil.
Try: deMamiel’s Winter Facial Oil, is a good one for dry skin. Ingredients like macadamia nut oil, arctic cranberry and arctic blackcurrant help protect skin against cold temperatures.
Tip: Mature skin, Dr. Zeichner explains, needs protective antioxidants and fatty acids like argan or marula oil. Fatty acids work to essentially fill in cracks the between skin cells, which softens the skin and keeps it supple; antioxidants help keep the skin foundation strong by promoting healthy collagen production and brightening dark spots.
Try: Ignore the word “serum” — celebrity esthetician Joanna Vargas’s Rejuvenating Serum is not only an oil, but a pretty rich one. It’s made with nourishing Argan and olive oils. Vitamin C gives the formula some brightening capabilities, too.

8 Best Face Oils for Glowing Skin In 2021
But will it make me break out? And: Do I really need another product? These are the face oil questions we get most often at goop. The truth in all but the most extreme cases is that not only will face oil not make you break out; it will absolutely change your life, not to mention your skin. Your skin will look and feel better. You will probably need less makeup. And you will probably need fewer skin-care items altogether.
Perhaps the ultimate skin secret, face oil has been used by people all over the world in various forms for millennia; nothing lasts that long unless it works. Makeup artists, who love only what makes the person sitting in their chair look fantastic, have been slathering it on clients for years; slowly, word spread. (Sophia Loren credits a lifetime of olive oil baths as one of the reasons her skin remains so beautiful in her eighties.) One of the best-looking older women we’ve ever met, stylist and former model Linda Rodin, has made her fortune late in life by mixing oils in her kitchen to create the runaway success Olio Lusso, which launched her entire beauty company.
The Benefits of Face Oil
1. You See Instant Results
No matter your skin type, try face oil for the first time and you’ll see serious benefits right away. Conventional moisturizers, which combine waxes with water and oils, seal moisture in the skin with the wax. But they can also seal out some of the oil and water, not to mention the treatment benefits included in the formula. With oil, it all sinks right in. And most oils are already naturally infused with ingredients like antioxidants, polyphenols, and omega fatty acids.

2. They’re beyond Multipurpose
You can use face oil for basic (and effective) moisturization, and it’s also amazing for makeup touch-ups—instead of adding more makeup, pat some oil on to revive the makeup you’ve already got on. In either case, avoid the T-zone unless you’re the driest person on earth. In a pinch, face oil can be a makeup remover, frizz fighter, cuticle and undereye cream, lip balm…
You need an oil if you use retinols or other drying or antiblemish products. Treatments like Retin-A, AHA peels or creams, and breakout fighters—from astringent toners all the way to prescription Accutane—can help your skin, but they can also seriously dry it out. Face oils return moisture and life to your skin, smoothing lines and soothing it in the process.
On the flip side, even skin that’s decidedly not dry can benefit from oils. While synthetic and mineral oils are comedogenic and clog pores, most natural plant oils are not. Believe it or not, the right face oil can help balance skin.

Retinoic Nutrient Face Oil
For super dry skin, massage in a rich moisturizer first, then layer on an oil over it. (Alternatively, you can massage in some face oil, then layer a rich moisturizer over it; either works.) Another layering trick: Pat on face oil, then smooth all-natural mineral SPF over it. The sunscreen seals in the oil a bit, and it also slightly mattifies your skin so that it’s less shiny. You can also use oil the way you would serum or moisturizer when thinning out foundation or bronzer formulas.

3. Oils Feel Amazing
Moisturizer formulators spend an enormous amount of time, money, and unnecessary (sometimes toxic) ingredients on texture—how it feels when you actually put the moisturizer on your skin. Texture is important: If you don’t love using a product, you tend not to use it. And you definitely tend not to buy it again. Oils have a naturally gorgeous, instantly skin-comforting texture—they need no extra ingredients to make them sink in.

4. Clean Face Oils Are Actually Better
While conventional beauty companies have (finally) gotten into the face-oil business, the all-natural, pure options are absolutely superior, not just from a clean perspective, but because a) there’s no improving on perfection—adding in extra ingredients often just dilutes the benefits of the base oils. And b) most clean face-oil makers have been making it much longer than the conventional newbies, and they’ve learned what really works on skin.

BONUS: THE NO-MAKEUP MAKEUP TOUCH-UP
Say you’re getting ready to go out after work. Or it’s 4 p.m. and you’re looking tired and lackluster. Before you add concealer, foundation, liner, or anything else, smooth a tiny bit of face oil between your fingers and pat it on over cheeks, under eyes, over lips, and at the temples and forehead. Use as little as possible; you can always add more. You can also use a little bit under the eyes to smooth away any smudged mascara or liner—though it’s important to note that it can make eye makeup run, so don’t put the oil on your actual eye makeup.
Let the oil settle in for a minute. Apply a little lip color, look at your face, and consider what else you might need—it might be nothing, or it might be just a touch of concealer, or it could be big-night-out full-on eye or some cheek color. Either way, you’ll need less than you normally use—and your skin will look especially glowy and fantastic.
One makeup artist we know makes mini (as in, smaller-than-a-thimble-size) bottles of face oil for her clients to carry in their evening bags for mid-event touch-ups. That and lip color are generally all you need!

What It Does, and Who Needs It
What is face oil?
Face oil’s primary function is to trap moisture in your skin, in order to prevent dryness. Face oils shouldn’t replace moisturizers, which themselves bolster and attract moisture levels in the skin. Typically, face oils are used to protect these moisture levels and prevent loss. Instead, oils are well paired with oil-free moisturizers—and should always be the last step on one’s skincare regimen, since they are the outermost defensive layer.
Different types of oils have different functions, and so a face oil’s overall formula might serve multiple purposes. Many of these oils are also key ingredients in everyday moisturizers (and even cleansers) since they have so many benefits for the skin. It’s just that a pure-oil formula (as in, a face oil) creates an occlusive or emollient that shields the skin as opposed to being fully absorbed.
Jojoba oil: a nourishing oil that mimics the function of sebum—and can in turn help mitigate excessive sebum production.
Argan oil: Rich with omega fatty acids, argan oil is nourishing and promotes healing and softness in the skin.
Tea tree oil: Antimicrobial, antifungal, and anti inflammatory, tea tree oil helps prevent breakouts and calms irritation—in small doses. (It must be paired with a “carrier oil” like argan or jojoba.)
Moringa oil: One of the best anti-aging oils, thanks to its antioxidant and antimicrobial abilities.
Squalane: Restores moisture levels and prevents further loss. Also has anti-inflammatory powers.
Rosehip oil: Thanks to fatty acids (like linoleic acid and linolenic acid), rosehip oil calms dry, irritated, or itchy skin, and it helps defend against skin-aging pollutants.
Marula oil: Antioxidant-rich marula oil also helps defend against skin-aging toxins, while also protecting the integrity of skin-firming collagen and elastin (its high concentration of amino acids and fatty acids keeps skin firm and nourished).
It’s our theory that coconut oil should be avoided for skin. It’s terrific for hair nourishment, but it’s one of the more comedogenic and occlusive oils (along with sweet almond oil), and while drier/non-acne-prone types might be fine, it can wreak havoc on many other skin types. (Even ingesting coconut oil can lead to severe breakouts for acne-prone skin.)
Who needs face oil?
While many of us experience excessive sebum production (and have oily, acne-prone, or combination skin), face oils are best suited for dry skin types whose body struggles to naturally nourish cells. However, face oils can be used by all skin types; it merely depends on the oils used and their respective functions.
In theory, there is a face oil suited for all skin types—even oily or acne-prone skin. It all comes down to the formula at play. However, if you have oily or acne-prone skin, you want to prioritize formulas that promise to be lightweight, non-comedogenic (non-clogging), and don’t build up on the skin. (Typically their molecules are small enough to be absorbed into the skin, whereas denser oils rest atop the skin and act more occlusively to block pores. ) Jojoba, marula, rosehip, and squalane are the best lightweight bets for oily and acne-prone skin types, while a balanced formula with tea tree oil will also help to control bacteria and breakouts.
When do you use face oil?
You can use face oils in the morning and evening, after cleansing and hydrating (along with any other steps you add to your regimen). It’s important to use oils as the last step in your skincare regimen since their application would hinder any additional products from being absorbed. Just as they trap moisture in, they block the absorption of other nourishing ingredients once applied. Typically, they absorb quickly into your skin, and even if they rest atop the face, they won’t make drier skin types “feel oily”. You should be OK to lay your head on your pillow without waking with a stained pillowcase.
As for seasonality: Some people may not want face oils at the height of summer when the humidity and heat keep their skin naturally nourished, but those same individuals may enjoy a face oil in colder, drier months, or in heavily air-conditioned spaces. Perennially dry skin types will benefit from use year round, since they are prone to moisture loss.
The Best Face Oils
Best Overall Face Oil: Jack Black MP10 Nourishing Oil
MP 10 Nourishing Oil
A melange of 10 nourishing oils (argan, moringa, jojoba, and marula get top bill), this multipurpose product is terrific on the face, beard, hair, or any dry patches of skin. As a pure face oil, it wears lightly and is particularly powerful on sensitive or irritable skin (like after a shave or on winter-parched / wind-burned skin). Best of all, if it’s your first foray into face oils and you find that you don’t like using them, you won’t waste the product since it has so many other use cases. Plus, it’s twice the volume of many other options (2 oz. instead of 1).
Best Upgrade Face Oil: Augustinus Bader The Face Oil
The Face Oil
If you want some top-shelf, blue-ribbon face-oil benefits, then here’s your winner. It’s a precious blend of antioxidant- and fatty-acid-rich oils including argan, hazelnut, babassu, and karanja. However, the real magic swirls around the brand’s proprietary “TFC8” complex, which combines a medley of amino acids, vitamins, and “synthesized molecules” (which mimic those in your own skin), which in turn magnifies the impact of all other ingredients in this formula (not to mention those that you obtain through other skincare products in your regimen).
Best Affordable Face Oil: The Ordinary 100% Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
The Ordinary keeps it simple; they rely less on unique formulas and instead sell straightforward benefits. In the case of this excellent rosehip oil, it’s a simple addition to your skincare regimen, providing a lightweight, nourishing, and defensive outermost layer (minus any gloss). As a rule of thumb, applying standalone oils to your skin isn’t a good practice, unless it’s from a reputable brand that promises a carefully prepared product like this. (In other words, the home-brewed knockoff oil brands on Amazon should be avoided!)
Three Other Face Oils We Love:
Clark’s Botanicals Jasmine Vital Oil
Jasmine Vital Oil
Glowing is the name of the game here—though it’s not the only benefit. A roster of anti-aging, antioxidant, and skin-firming oils also delivers a radiant aura to the skin–and not the glossy film that you feel from having greasy, grimey skin.
Caudalie VineActiv Overnight Detox Oil
VineActiv Overnight Detox Oil
A potent overnight oil that helps resuscitate tired, dry, and pollution-damaged skin. It uses a “dry oil” formula, in that you won’t feel any excess or see any glossy film on your face (your pillowcases are safe, in other words). It’s a terrific way to lock in moisture in an air-conditioned room, or at peak bone-dry winter, when you’re essentially a sitting (err, sleeping) duck.
Biossance Squalane + Tea Tree Balancing Oil
Squalane + Tea Tree Balancing Oil
A top pick for oily and acne-prone skin types, this one deploys the perfect balance of tea tree oil to counter bacterial buildup inside the pores, while lightweight squalane shields skin from moisture loss, without clogging pores simultaneously.

Best Face Oil for Every Skin Type: 10 Editor-Approved Formulas
Few skincare products are as polarising as face oil. Chances are, you’re either a loyal convert, slathering on 925 different formulas on a weekly basis, or the idea of willingly smearing oil across your precious complexion is enough to bring you out in a sweat.
Whichever side of the fence you’re on, bear with us, because we’re here to help you find that holy-grail face oil that will transform your routine for good.
What does a face oil do, anyway?
But first, back to skincare school. What exactly does a face oil do? A common misconception is they’re simply a mega hydrator. In fact, oils are not humectants, which means they won’t pull moisture into the deeper layers of your skin. (If this it what you’re after, it’s time to become acquainted with hyaluronic acid. ) What a face oil will do, however, is seal in hydration, making your lovingly applied serums and creams work harder for longer.
Which skin types can use a face oil?
Now, forget what you think you know about your serum’s slippier sister, because there’s now a targeted face oil out there to treat every complexion – whatever your skin type, tone, or concerns.
Dry skin? That’s a no-brainer. You want heavy-duty oil extracts that will create a barrier between your face and the outside world, stopping that essential hydration from evaporating. Oily skin? No problem! The best face oil for you will actually help regulate sebum production, preventing that 12pm shine. You just need to stick to the most non-comedogenic oil extracts (more on that below). Acne? Stay with us – choose the right one, and a face oil will kill bacteria (ie: spots) in their tracks.
So now we’ve got you converted, click through to discover the skin-saving oil made for you (well, your face).

Best face oil for upgrading your moisturiser
Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
If you’ve found a moisturiser you love, there’s no need to switch it out for a heavier-hitter just because the temperatures are dropping. Instead, blend a drop of this 100% pure marula oil into your cream to give it an extra hit of moisture that’ll keep your skin happy from autumn through to spring. It’s a perfect all-rounder for any skin type, and you only need a minuscule drop.
Best face oil for acne-prone skin
Good Skin Face Oil Serum
If you’ve got acneic skin, you’re probably already using spot treatments that leave skin feeling stripped, like benozyl peroxide or salicylic acid.
To replenish those essential fatty acids and nutrients, you need to layer a lightweight, non-comedogenic oil on top. While some oils should absolutely be avoided – steer clear of coconut, avocado and olive as a general rule – lighter oils that are closer in density to the skin’s natural sebum can be a brilliant tool. They’ll regulate oil production and keep skin in a happy, balanced state.
Disciple’s turmeric and cucumber-based blend is exactly what you’re looking for. Apply it morning and night, and at every opportunity in-between.
Best face oil for every single skin type

Best face oil for fine lines
Superstar Retinoid Night Oil
Pestle & Mortar
Nothing works to re-plump fine lines quite like retinol, but it’s important you find the right formula.

15 Best Face Oils for Every Skin Type
Oily skin scares us so much that sometimes we can avoid face oils altogether just because we have the false idea that if we use them we’ll automatically have oily skin we can’t fix. That’s simply just not true. Facial oils have numerous benefits for our faces to take advantage of. They can hydrate dry skin, reduce wrinkles, shrink pores, help get rid of pimples, and even serve as a primer for your makeup. They can also calm irritated skin and keep toxins out when used. That’s all pretty impressive if you ask us.
If you’re looking to add a facial oil to your skincare routine but you don’t know where to begin, Grove’s got you covered. Scroll down our list of the best face oils for every skin type and shop naturally derived favorites like this Rooted Beauty R7 Complex Facial Oil, among other too-good-to-pass-up picks.
This list of products was determined by ratings and reviews from Grove members.
What is face oil?
Face oils are meant to help your skin’s complexion by locking in moisture to make your skin more hydrated than before. From rosehip oil to argan oil and even vitamin E oil, face oils are made with mostly natural ingredients to boost your skin’s appearance. They’re marketed for different uses — for example, some may be called a daytime oil and some a nighttime oil, but almost all hydrating face oils come in a tear-drop container so that the oil is super easy to apply to your skin whenever the product calls for it.
If you’re wondering if you can use face oils every day, the answer is yes. Facial oils can be used in place of other products like a serum, or they can be used with other facial products to create an elaborate healing routine.
What does face oil do?
Facial oils have many benefits, but probably the biggest bonus of using one is that they help strength your skin by moisturizing it, which leads to better looking skin that literally locks in hydration with each use. Plus, face oil also helps with anti-aging and gives healing properties to your skin too. Other perks to picking a face oil is that it won’t clog pores, but it will give your skin a healthier appearance.
Ready to add a face oil to your everyday facial routine after reading all that? Why wait? Check out our list above of the best face oils for every skin type and choose one that you’ll absolutely love. We’ve pulled together top picks from best-selling brands like Mad Hippie and Acure to make getting started easier than ever.
Does facial oil go on before or after moisturizer?
Hydrating face oil should go on after moisturizer. That’s because face oil is the thickest product in your face care routine, and it can seep under lotion or moisturizer to give your skin all its great benefits. When you’re going to put your face oil on, just make sure your lotion or moisturizer is dry and has already soaked into your skin before you go to apply the oil. If you’re not sure if your moisturizer is dry enough, you can count to 60 before applying your oil or sing the chorus to one of your favorite songs (which is pretty fun) before you apply it.
Most face oils come with a tear-drop applicator to make applying it easy, and you usually only need a few drops. Follow the instructions for your preferred face oil, and you should be good to go.

90,000 reviews which is the best remedy for oily skin instead of cream
Today, oils for personal care are very popular in cosmetology. The lists of active oils include both vegetable and essential oils. This article will discuss what kind of cosmetic oils should be used to care for your face, and how to choose them correctly, starting from the individual characteristics of the body.
Types and properties
In general, all cosmetic oils are popular due to their natural origin. They are made without the use of any chemical additives, so you can be sure that the product you choose will not harm you.
Producers obtain this organic product by squeezing almost all available plant parts: flowers, seeds, nuts, leaves, skins and even grains.Plants that are common in our country are also used, and those that can be found only in exotic countries with a warm climate.
Of the common and, accordingly, inexpensive oils, it is possible to note squeeze of rose, rose hips, chamomile, celandine or rosemary. Despite the fact that they are quite cheap, their benefits are quite obvious.
These oily products work well primarily because their composition resembles the oil secreted by the skin. Therefore, the epidermis responds well to such natural supplements. Masks based on such elements are perfectly absorbed. At the same time, they do not cause allergies, therefore they are suitable even for rather sensitive skin.
But still, oils should be selected individually, trying to suit your skin problems or to be a universal solution for any problems. Let’s take a look at several popular options for such natural cosmetics for the skin of the face, in order to understand which is the best to choose.
For naturally dry skin or for the epidermis, which begins to flake over time, it is best to choose castor oil. It perfectly softens the surface of the face and makes it smoother. And with regular use, castor oil even allows you to get rid of the first mimic wrinkles.
This oil is excellent for very sensitive skin. But many people do not like this remedy because of its unpleasant smell. You can solve this problem by mixing castor oil with various additives.
See below for details.
Another interesting personal care product is sea buckthorn oil. It helps fight inflammation and even relieves acne and small pimples.
It can be used by both teenagers and mature women. After all, it gives the face an even light color and removes minor damage from the skin. But with sea buckthorn masks, you should be extremely careful – keep the dosages indicated in the recipes so as not to harm your skin.
You will learn about face masks with sea buckthorn oil and their benefits from the video.
Of natural vegetable oils, olive oil is very popular.It can be found in almost any supermarket. It perfectly nourishes the skin, therefore it is often used for skin care.
Wheat germ oil can be used as an alternative. It is a little more rare, but also very useful.
This multifunctional oil helps to moisturize the skin and make it healthier both externally and internally. Two types of oils are suitable for the skin: stone fruit and squeeze from fruits.
Close to the previous one and coconut oil. It protects the skin from the influence of the external environment and nourishes it from the inside with useful microelements. This oil is recommended for use on dry skin, as well as at times when the skin is exposed to maximum stress – in the heat, or vice versa, during severe frosts.
You will learn more about recipes and methods of using coconut oil for the face from the video.
Almond oil is suitable for nourishing skin that lacks vitamins, or that fade over time. This product is perfect for the care of the delicate and sensitive area around the eyes. By using it on a regular basis, you will add freshness and vitality to your appearance.
You will learn more about almond oil for face in the video.
A versatile product like avocado oil, suitable for all skin types. It rescues dry or aging skin and speeds up the regeneration process.That is why it can be used on the inflamed epidermis, where there are some small pimples or wounds.
You will learn more about the properties of avacado oil and its use for improving facial skin in the video.
The properties of apricot kernel oil are similar to peach oil. It is just as fragrant and nourishes the skin in times when the body lacks vitamins.
You will learn more about the beneficial properties of apricot oil and its uses in the video.
Finally, it is worth mentioning the jojoba. This tool is quite oily and viscous, so it is better to use it on the face not in pure form, but as an additive to some kind of mask. In this composition, the product is suitable even for very sensitive and problem skin.Shea butter has the same properties.
More information about the beneficial properties of jojoba oil, as well as how to use the oil for the face and recipes for masks, you will see in the video.
Drawing black smoky
The first thing to take care of is the foundation, an even complexion. Use a good foundation, better in a satin texture: a completely matte finish has outlived its usefulness, a highlighter as an accent will be inappropriate in a smoky make-up, and a satin foundation will just make up for the lack of radiance. We correct the area around the eyes with the help of concealer, fix the result with finishing powder, and also slightly mark the cheekbones with a sculptor, add quite a bit of neutral blush to the “apples” of the cheeks with a slight movement of the brush: to slightly refresh the dramatic look.Shaping the eyebrows: preferably a little brighter than usual.
Getting started with the eyes: apply the primer with light hammering movements. We will make the simplest and lightest smoky – we start by applying a gel liner with a synthetic brush along the eyelash edge. We need to create a kind of sloppy arrow, slightly “stretching” the shape of the eye to the temples. We shade the edge of this improvised arrow using a synthetic brush: remember, we need to shade the border, and not just smear the existing drawing.Further, with black matte shadows and a brush for applying shadows made of natural bristles, we fill the entire surface of the movable eyelid and, accordingly, the pattern outlined by the eyeliner, this must be done with hammering, “trampling” movements.
Soften the border of the black shadows using brown matte shadows and a feather brush. It is important to understand that it is impossible to make a soft color transition to the skin with only black shadows and a blending brush, it is important to use at least one transitional color, in this case brown, or better – two and “brush” the shading with another brown – lighter.By the way, for this it is better to use a second, clean blending brush.
On the lower eyelid, we also shade black matte shadows, work well between the lashes with a black pencil, put a highlight with champagne shades in the inner corner of the eye and under the eyebrow. With a black pencil, we also work out the lower mucous membrane and paint over the eyelashes well with rich black mascara to add volume.
False eyelashes can be used if desired.
We paint the lips – it is best to use a milky shade of translucent gloss: for a light glossy texture to balance the dramatic and bright eye makeup and give freshness to the face as a whole. That’s it – our makeup is ready. It is exclusively for brave girls, but believe me, the effort is worth it. By the way, such makeup is done, despite the seeming cumbersomeness, rather quickly.
What kind of brushes do you need to do this kind of makeup?
You will need a standard arsenal of brushes for face and eyebrow makeup, as well as a synthetic brush for blending a gel liner, a brush for applying matte black eyeshadow, and a pair of natural bristle brushes for blending eyeshadow.
Where can you buy quality brushes?
All the brushes you need can be easily found in the assortment of the Wobs online store. High quality of each brush presented in the assortment, pleasant, affordable prices, convenient payment and fast delivery.

Black classic smoky ice
RED SMOKY ICE
Fresh, original, daring – this is what we can say about the smokey ice makeup fashionable this season.To begin with, not every fashionista or make-up artist has a red shade in her cosmetic bag, if only because this is not the most popular product that requires a complex shading skill.
But do not despair if suddenly you did not have a multicolor palette with a red tint in the palette or juicy burgundy eyeshadows at hand. Instead, you can use your favorite red lipstick, because the main feature of the Smokey Ice technique is the smooth shading of the soft base. Instead, we will use black lipstick and shadows.
To choose the right shades for smokey red, the easiest way is to rely on the color type. If the skin is lively pink or porcelain, the eye color is blue or gray, then it is better to choose cold shades of red: wine, classic red or cherry color. If your eyes are brown, your skin is warm yellow, and your hair is from straw to chocolate, then terracotta and brick-red shades will suit you.
When shading red on the eyes, it is important to remember that it can easily create the effect of teary or tired eyes.To avoid this, you need to remove the vascular network of proteins with eye drops and be sure to carefully distinguish between shadows and eyes with a black pencil, drawing the ciliary edge.
Red smokey ice step by step
Step 1. Face.
Don’t put on too much product – just a light haze is needed to make your makeup intriguing and comfortable.
Step 2. Base
The smoky ice technique involves a soft haze, shaded over the eyes, which lasts all day.If you use shadows in this makeup, then it will not be superfluous to use an eye base. If lipstick acts as the main product, then you can do without a base.
Step 3. Blending
Apply red lipstick to the entire upper eyelid, and carefully blend along the fold upward, to the middle of the upper fixed eyelid, repeating the bend of the eyebrow. After that, we shade the outer corners of the eyes and the fold of the eyelid with black dry shadows, apply light highlights to the inner corners and under the eyebrow, making soft transitions, and at the end we fix the lipstick with transparent powder or dry shadows of a similar shade.
Step 4. Eyeliner and mascara
So that the eyes are not red, we densely draw the space between the eyelashes and the lower mucous membrane with a pencil, and from above we shade the pencil along the line of eyelash growth. For evening make-up, you can apply liquid eyeliner instead of a pencil along the lash edge. We complete the eye makeup with voluminous mascara.
Step 5. Eyebrows
This season eyebrows can be either graphic or carelessly combed. For evening make-up, it is better to draw the upper and lower border of the eyebrows, for day make-up, use a gel and a brush.
Step 6. Lips
In evening make-up with such eyes, you can wear the same lipstick on your lips as on your eyes, only with a thicker layer. In daytime – leave lips neutral or apply with fingertips. Remember to use lip balm before applying lipstick.
Fundamentally different from its previous red-black version in the order of application and the set of products: this make-up is based on a black pencil and dry shadows or a red pigment.
1. First, apply a black pencil over the base and blend it into a haze – so the base of future smoky is ready. Do not forget to draw the lash line in a circle.
2. On top, fix the black pencil with dry shadows or red pigment, starting from the middle of the century. If desired, you can completely cover the pencil with them, and shade until a soft transition.
3. Don’t forget about eyeliner and mascara! In daytime make-up it is better to use a thin liner, in evening make-up – false eyelashes.
The image is ready!

Also, below we will consider the mistakes that girls make when performing “smokey eyes”.
Smoky Eyes errors
# 1. Not using an eyeshadow primer: Many of the girls don’t understand the importance of an eyeshadow primer. Perhaps you will not see the difference at the beginning, when you just did your makeup, but throughout the day you will see how shadows can roll or crumble in your eyes.And it won’t look very nice.
How to fix: Start by moisturizing your eyelids. Before applying concealer or foundation, apply a quality primer all over your lid. Apply in a thin layer, spread well.
No. 2. Not using basic natural shades of eyeshadow: Usually, girls begin to do eye makeup with dark shades, neglecting natural ones. And this is wrong. It is the natural shades that soften the transition from dark and the effect of smoky eyes is obtained.If you just apply dark shadows, it will turn out to be ugly and dirty.
How to fix: Before using dark eyeshadow, apply a neutral shade shade all over the eyelid. This will be the base for your smoky eyes makeup
# 3 Incorrect use of cream shadows: If you apply cream shadows in a very thick layer and think that this way the makeup will last longer – you are mistaken. Cream eyeshadow should be set loose. Without setting, your creamy eyeshadow will roll throughout the day.
How to fix: Apply a thin layer of cream eyeshadow on the eyelid and fix eye makeup with the same shade of loose eyeshadow.
# 4 Visible clear lines: Another mistake many girls make is poor shading of borders. If you don’t blend the shadow lines well enough, you will get porridge in front of your eyes.
How to fix: After applying the eyeshadow to the eyelids, take a small round bristle brush and blend the clear lines of the shadow. You need to achieve a “haze” effect on the eyes.
# 5 Do not use curling mascara: Many people think that if makeup is done in dark shades of eyeshadow, you can neglect mascara. Using poor mascara will create the appearance of poorly divided lashes.
How to fix: Take a volumizing mascara and apply first to the roots of your lashes, and then apply a second layer to the ends. This way your eyelashes will be voluminous and well separated.
# 6 Unkempt Brows: Most people ignore the look of their brows.For example, the Asian type of girls have dark eyebrows by nature and they do not need to additionally fill out the form, in contrast to the Western type of female appearance. Do not forget that eyebrows shape our eyes and play a big role in the look.
How to fix: You can use special shadows and pencils to fill and shape your eyebrows. Make eyebrow corrections before applying these products. And remember that the color of eyebrow products should be chosen according to the type of appearance and hair.Accordingly, blondes with black eyebrows will look out of place and not very pretty.
# 7 Doesn’t brighten the inner corners of the eyes: Many girls forget to apply light pearlescent shadows to the inner corners of the eyes. thus, the eyes seem small and the look is sad.
How to fix: Apply a light pearlescent eyeshadow to the inner corners of the eyes. This will make the look fresh and visually enlarge the eyes. You will see the difference immediately. Use a small natural bristle brush to apply.
№8 They will not draw the lower eyelid. Many girls forget to line up the lower eyelid and apply mascara to the lash line of the lower eyelid. Because of this, eye makeup gives the impression of being unfinished.
How to fix: Use a beige or white eyeliner pencil on the lower eyelid mucosa. This trick will make the look expressive. Then take the dark eyeshadow you used on the upper eyelid and apply lightly on the lower eyelid to complete the makeup. Also apply a layer of mascara to your lower lash line.
# 9 Do not use eyeliner. After completing the image, most girls do not fail the eyelid contour. But trust me, the difference is palpable.
How to fix: Line up your eyes with black or brown eyeliner, or you can use an eyeliner pencil. Try it and you will see the difference immediately.

Smokey Ice Eye Makeup Technique
Mysterious “maybe” instead of “yes” or “no”. Light haze instead of crisp lines. Alluring uncertainty, exciting intrigue … all this is “smokyis”, a make-up technique that has gained immense popularity.
Do you want to be a femme fatale, mysterious stranger, drama queen? Then the Smokyis make-up technique is specially designed for you.

An example of Smokey Ice Makeup
Smokey ice photo
This type of makeup appeared at the beginning of the last century, but has not lost its relevance until now. Perhaps every girl at least once made herself a Smoky Ice. And for many, this is generally the most favorite type of make-up.
“Smoky Ice” is translated as “smoky eyes”. Indeed, it is characterized by a certain vagueness, a smooth transition from one shade to another. You should choose close, compatible shadow colors. The classic version is light beige, gray, black. But there are other color combinations that are selected according to the color of the eyes. So, for green eyes, chocolate shades are suitable, for brown – olive green or purple. It is better not to use blue or use it carefully, because it isbecause it can create the effect of bruising around the eyes.
The Smokyis make-up technique includes several steps. First, using a black pencil, create arrows and gently shade them. The second step is to apply the lightest shade of shadows to the moving and stationary eyelid to the very eyebrows. The area under the eyebrows needs to be lightened. Then we apply a dark color, moving from the outer corner of the eye to the inner one, emphasizing the arc in the eye socket. On the lower eyelid, shadows are also applied from the outer corner of the eye to the inner one, with a gradual decrease in the color intensity.
Whatever you do, everything must be carefully shaded. You should not use liquid eyeliner – it clearly emphasizes the shape of the eye.
Do not forget about the neat line of the eyebrows, you can add a little blush to the cheekbones. This makeup focuses on the eyes, so don’t go overboard with lipstick or lip gloss. Choose neutral lipstick and gloss shades. Too bright lips in combination with “smokey eye” will look vulgar.
The Smokey Eyes make-up technique can be used both in everyday life and on special occasions.The only difference is that darker, more saturated tones are used for the evening.
If done correctly, your look takes on a special depth, expressiveness and drama.

Smokey or Smokey? – Capitalize your title
Writing two similar-sounding words (homophones) and using them correctly can be challenging. The words “smoky” and “smoky” are the same and present a challenge for beginners and fluent English speakers alike.
What is the difference between Smokey and Smokey?
Firstly, the word “smoky” is considered and often used as a noun in the name of something, while the word “smoky” is used to describe the state in which smoke is found in a particular building, hallway or room. For example, Smokey the Bear uses the spelling with the letter “e” because his name is “Smokey.”
On the other hand, the word “smoky” is an adjective and can also be used to denote a condition in which a certain substance smells like smoke .For example, when used in a sentence: “Was it me or was the food a little smoky?” The word “smoky” is written without the “e” because it describes the taste of the food.
One example that violates both of these rules is Great Smoky Mountains. While smoky is a noun for mountains, it is also an adjective that describes what mountains look like when the air is foggy or foggy. Therefore, the correct spelling is “smoky”.
The word “smokey” is a noun and is therefore used as the name of a person or object.So , if you want to use the word “smoke”, you will not describe how the fire devastated the building and left a cloud of ke, but you will be referring to the name of a specific item. It’s the same with the word smoky. If you want to use it, you will describe the effect of fire or excess heat on a specific object or place. It can be confusing, especially for writers and editors, but this guide should help you differentiate between the two.

How is it really spelled?
The great philosopher Gallagher, abusing the fruit of a giant wooden sledgehammer, once thought: “We are driving along the boulevard and park in the driveway.”
It’s funny because it’s true.
The English language, like Gallagher’s career, is a complex system of convoluted and confusing rules that apply in all situations … until they disappear.
Different people have different freezes. My particular hindrance is homophones.
They are my sworn enemies.
They are Vader for my Obi-Wan, Stones for my Beatles, Gallagher’s hammer for my delicious watermelon if you like.
Homophones – a subset of homonyms, if you’re wondering – are words that are pronounced the same but spelled differently.
Double duel. Flu flu. Gorilla guerrilla. Knew-New. They are, they are.
And, yes, Smoky Smokey.
It’s not that I don’t know the difference.I do.
Just my writing process, as it is, often feels like riding a roller coaster without a seatbelt. I can barely hold on.
I was taught to write quickly and on time. Although I don’t say this word out loud, it is an auditory process.
When I type, I hear what I write in my head.
I’m not so much thinking about the meaning of words as trying to catch the thoughts that pass through my brain, down my hand through my fingers and fall on the keyboard.
Homophones – and often punctuation marks – fall prey to the process. My brain tells my fingers to type “there,” but it doesn’t always figure out which one, and my fingers almost never stop to ask.
Sometimes I type Smoky when I mean Smokey.
And sometimes I type Smokey when I mean Smoky.
And sometimes I screwed up with “them, they, there” and strangers yell at me on the Internet and call me an idiot.
So, once and for all, let’s settle the big haze and smoke debate.*

So is it Smokey or Smokey?
Smoky is an adjective, a word used to describe or change a noun. The mountains, shrouded in blue fog, are smoky.
Your fire may be smoky, just like your eyeshadow or your uncle who hasn’t kicked the habit.
This is the Great Smoky Mountains.
It should be clean enough and not smoky at all, except for some people who ruined it for all of us.
These people are the US Forest Service.

Smokey Bear, letter ‘e’
In 1942, the Forest Service was looking for a mascot to help their campaign to raise awareness of wildfires.
A bear was selected for the job and named after “Smokey” Joe Martin, a hero of the New York City Fire Department who was burned and blinded during a daring rescue operation in 1922.
On August 9, 1944, just four years after FDR dedicated the park, Smokey Bear was born and spelling chaos fell on the world.
Smokey has become a national phenomenon, starting with a simple poster of a bear in a campaign hat and jeans pouring water on a fire and stating, “Caring will prevent 9 out of 10 forest fires!”
It’s okay. They were still working on the slogan.
It took them only three years to come up with the slogan that we all remember, the iconic “Remember … only YOU can prevent forest fires.”
This slogan lasted for five decades, until in 2001“ wildfires ”were replaced by“ wildfires ”- a change that we all completely and irrevocably ignored.
In 1950, a five-pound, three-month-old American black bear, found after a fire in New Mexico, became a living version of Smokey.
The first bear that climbed a tree to avoid a fire and suffered burns on its paws and hind legs was called Hotfoot Teddy.
But everyone immediately recognized the one who called this bear something of an idiot, and was quickly renamed Smokey in honor of the famous bear.
See also: Why are they called the Smoky Mountains?
Smokey lived at the National Zoo for 26 years, developed a crush on peanut butter sandwiches, and after failed attempts to mate with a female named “Goldie” adopted Little Smokey, an orphaned bear cub from Lincoln Forest.
The 70s were a wild time, buddy.
So, when you write about a living New Mexico icon pair that became a celebrity at the national zoo, remember this: Smokey is a proper name, not a descriptor.
Smokey Bear is buried in the garden of the Smoky Bear Historic Park in Capitan, New Mexico, next to the forest fire prevention interpretation center and Smokey himself.
A plaque on his grave reads: “This is the resting place of the first living Smokey bear … a living symbol of forest fire prevention and wildlife conservation.”
See? It is so simple.
Now, just get my brain to explain it to my fingers and we’ll get down to business.
Do you know the reason for the difference in spelling? Let us know in the comments.
* Note from writers: all of this comes with the caveat that most dictionaries recognize smoky as a less preferred, less frequently used, but acceptable variant of smoky. I directly blame the Forest Service.

Why The Smoky Mountains Smoky
Come to the Great Smoky Mountains for a while and you will quickly see the famous smoke surrounding them. The mountains of East Tennessee and western North Carolina are shrouded in a smoky haze. The smoke gives the area a mystical and mysterious look. The Cherokee Indians considered this area a sacred place, calling it “Shakonj”, which means “land of blue smoke.”But why Smoky Mountains Smokey? Read on to find out!
What causes smoke?
The famous fog that surrounds the Smoky Mountains is actually caused by native vegetation. You probably learned in school that plants absorb carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. However, plants do not only release oxygen. They release what are called volatile organic compounds.
This may sound bad or dangerous, but it is not! They are absolutely natural! These chemicals have a high vapor pressure and, in the right environment, form the vapors or fog you see.Millions of plants and trees in the Smoky Mountains emit fumes that create a “smoky” look.
VOCs are not only responsible for the fog, but they are also responsible for the blue tint. When vegetation from the area emits vapors, molecules in it scatter blue light from the sky. The Cherokee called this phenomenon “blue smoke”. Things like this happen in forests all over the country, but are especially noticeable in smokies. The Smoky Mountains has a lot of rain and sunshine, high humidity and stagnant air.Put it all together and you have the ideal conditions for blue smoke to be very visible and bright.
Is smoke air pollution?
Unfortunately there is air pollution in the Smoky Mountains. However, scientists say 80% of the fog in the Smoky Mountains comes from the sources listed above! The National Park Service has made significant strides in reducing air pollution. A recent study found that pollution levels are currently the lowest in years! And the plan is to keep pollution down! The EPA has set a goal to return all national parks to a completely natural haze by 2064.
Where can I see the smoke?
Everywhere! The famous smoke is very present on rainy days and early in the morning here in the mountains. Drive through Cades Cove and you will notice smoke around the mountains. Or head towards Newfound Gap and you will pass many lookouts that showcase the Smoky Mountains doing what they do best – smoke!
Why the Smoky Mountains? In short, due to naturally occurring VOCs and blue light.This natural fog makes our mountains some of the most magnificent and breathtaking mountains in the world! If you haven’t seen this natural fog yet, come and see! The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is free to enter and you can click here to find out why!
A Brief History of Smokey Bear, Legendary Forest Service Mascot |
Last year, California experienced the deadliest bushfire season in state history, with over 8,000 fires burning nearly two million acres and extinguishing hundreds of millions of dollars *.In a matter of minutes, a city called Paradise was engulfed in flames and almost completely destroyed; 85 people died.
The United States has lived in fear of such devastation since the early years of World War II, when fire was viewed as a weapon of war. And almost as many we have Smokey Bear, sweetly but persistently reminding each of us of our role in protecting the country from this danger: “Remember – only you can prevent forest fires.”
In 1942, Japanese submarines shelled an oil field near Santa Barbara, near the 2,700 square miles of Los Padres National Forest.Concerned that rear fire could distract from hostilities, the War Advertising Council and the US Forest Service launched a campaign to raise public awareness of the threat. The early advertisements looked the same as many other wartime messages. Another enemy to defeat: forest fires, read the red seal. “Our Carelessness: Their Secret Weapon,” read a poster of Hitler staring at the flames. Disney then temporarily loaned Bambi, who was introduced in 1942, and the public began to listen.
Inspired by the power of a charismatic cartoon, the Military Advertising Council came up with Smokey in his ranger hat and jumpsuit. He first appeared in August 1944, pouring a bucket of water over a fire with the words: “Caring will prevent 9 out of 10 fires.” In 1947, he received his better-known slogan.
Smokey made a splash. In 1950, when the black bear cub was rescued from a burning forest in New Mexico, he was named Smokey and sent to Washington, D.C., where he lived at the National Zoo.(The zoo celebrates Smokey’s 75th birthday with a special exhibit.) Two years later, Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins, the songwriters who wrote “Frosty the Snowman,” wrote an ode to Smokey. (Called “Smokey the Bear” to improve the rhythm, this led to decades of confusion over the character’s name.) And by 1964, Smokey was receiving so many letters from children that the post office gave him his own zip code; He now has an Instagram and Twitter account and has learned to speak Spanish.Today, the Advertising Council estimates that 96 percent of the adult population recognizes it, a rating usually given to Mickey Mouse and the president.
Smokey can be seen across the country promoting the National Fire Hazard Rating System, but the cute bear on the sign is often the target of a theft.

Smokey’s popularity has made him an effective spokesman for the Forest Service’s fire prevention message, which has helped significantly reduce the number of wildfires on America’s public lands.Between the 1930s and 1950s, the average number of annual wildfires in the United States fell by more than 40,000. By 2011, the average number of acres burned annually by forest fires had dropped from 22 million in 1944 to 6.6 million. Smokey “associates firefighting with good citizenship,” explains Katriona Sandilands, professor of environmental studies at the University of York in Toronto. “With him, there is no doubt that fires are bad and that individual citizens are responsible for it.”
But what if Smokey was really wrong about this?
Some scientists now believe that the simple idea that fire is bad has made some forests more susceptible to flames – a phenomenon they call the “smoky bear effect.” “Fuel” such as bushes and dead standing trees. Where climate change has led to drier conditions, this land is flammable.Now, a catastrophic fire that was once unusual could have been caused by the heat from a lightning strike.
“The crisis is not the number of fires, but the fact that we have too many bad fires and too few good fires,” warns Stephen Pine of Arizona State University, lead researcher in the history of wildfires. that we are not doing a good burning that could calm a bad fire. ” Smokey’s focus on fire prevention is outdated, Pine said.
Government policy has evolved to include targeted use of controlled burns – “good combustion” – in the hopes of preventing major unplanned fires. Smokey’s official motto changed slightly in 2001 to reflect this. Now he says, “Only you can prevent bushfires ” – the idea is that bushfires can be ignited and controlled, but bushfires cannot. “There is good fire and bad fire, that’s what his message is.” Babete Anderson, Forest Service Representative.For children, fire is candles and birthday bonfires. Smokey’s Message: “Be careful with this. Make sure your fire is out. ”
But some fire safety experts think it’s impossible to separate Smokey from the old notion that we have to tame fire. “Let him retire with dignity,” Pine suggests. The Forest Service has no plans to supplant its 75-year-old mascot, which is also at the heart of the commodity industry, and yet Pine dreams of a replacement.
Since 1947, Smokey has often accompanied two teddy bears on posters. In one image, they are all holding hands: “Please, guys,” Smokey says, hugging his charges, “be especially careful this year!” According to Pine, “there are two of them so that they can teach how to start and extinguish fires” – the modern understanding of fires, both good and bad. Smokey was created to speak to a generation shaped by fear of war. These cubs can be the voice of a new generation learning to coexist with nature in an era of climate change.

Smokey on Friday
Smokey (real name Clarence) is a deuteragonist in the TV series Friday.He is portrayed by Chris Tucker.
Smokey appears on Friday as Craig’s best friend and drug dealer working for a supplier. The Big Smokey Worm was an avid marijuana user himself, and when he and his friend Craig spent a Friday afternoon together, Smokey made him smoke some marijuana. It was assumed that he would sell the “Worm”, but, apparently, earlier he smoked more. Later that day, Big Worm paid a visit to the boys’ area. Smokey told him that they smoked all of his weed, although Smokey smoked more than Craig.The Big Worm then threatened Smokey, saying that if they didn’t pay him the money they owe him by 10 p.m., he would kill them both. So Craig and Smokey came up with strategies to see how they can get paid. Craig asked his mother Betty and sister Dana and they both turned him down. Craig’s father, Willie, learned of the threat the Big Worm had sent to Smokey and kicked Smokey out of the house, but Craig followed him. They went outside and saw the van with the Big Worm’s friends, who had machine guns, and they fired at Craig and Smokey.Craig fired back with his pistol, but missed. To avoid the gang, the boys hid in a truck. On the way back to the area, Dibo beat Debbie’s sister Felisha in a show of domestic violence. Dibo got excited about it and he slaps Debbie for the comments she attacked him. Craig then came and pushed Deebo into a fight, which Craig won. The film ends with Smokey talking to Big Worm on the phone in his room and recounting the events that took place that day.Smokey finally tells Big Worm that he is going to be healed.
