I Put Oil On My Face for an Entire Month: Here's What Happened

Updated 09/08/17

If you created a list of things I’ve purposefully put on my face over the years it would include a wide assortment of produce; every beauty acid, serum, moisturizer, and exfoliator known to man; and toothpaste (because one time in 2002, Jessica Simpson said it healed pimples). In short, beauty experimentation fills me with glee, and I’m always down to play the guinea pig. It should come as no surprise then that I recently decided it would be interesting to forsake my usual intensive skincare regimen for just one ingredient: oil.

Here’s what happened when I put nothing but oil on my face for an entire month.
