I get disheartened on the days when I see a parched, dull and super oily face. I tried on a number of creams and products but unfortunately, none has proved a boon for my skin. Then with all, I was left was consulting a dermatologist and guess what, he asked me to feed my skin oil for nourishment and revitalization. That time, it seemed totally absurd to me, it was like polishing my skin with more grease and causing more acne by making it more greasy. After wrapping up all my thoughts, my final thought was maybe oiling can be a solution to my dull acne prone skin. Afterall, all I wanted was to kill all my skin problems with some magic. So I tried castor oil and tea tree oil.
And yes, they did wonders!
