I have oilyl/combo skin and i use jojoba oil in my routine before my moisturizer. I'm not sure if my face should fully absorb the oil but for me my face is still sticky and the oil is still there after 4 hours. So when i sleep my face still has oil on it then eventually goes on my pillow. The odd thing is when i wake up i dont look that moisturizer. My face still has dry patches and looks dull and unhydrated. Idk if it's because I'm applying too much (5-6 drops) or if its the order of when i apply my oil. Any suggestions?

Hi Mary, if your face is already oily, maybe use less of the jojoba oil or only use it on your cheeks and drier areas? Not sure which moisturizer you use, but if that already contains oils, it may be too much oil for your skin type.

this is such a useful post! wait, i should take notes of everything :P

i think i'm also a type A persona since i get so easily agitated and anxious over things, unlike type B people who, as i read, are relaxed and calm. i might be both or in between though, it depends. the only times i feel those symptoms of stressed skin was when i used the wrong products such as an ace facial wash that contains salicylic acid. it resulted in my face experiencing dry patches and flaking off, eugh.

aloe vera is magic! i have this aloe vera gel and it always works wonders for anything and everything; from wound cuts to pimples to rashes. other than aloe vera, i never really pay attention to other ingredients that you listed there though hahaha what a bad habit.

Haha, thank you, glad you found it helpful!

Using a strong product can definitely stress out our skin, but that's usually pretty easy to figure out because the effects are almost instant! Aloe vera is pretty awesome, it really does work for all sorts of situations, and it's probably the most well known of all the destressing/anti-inflammatory ingredients!
