... wet or dry skin?

Does one way absorb properties better?

Thanks in advance.

Dry skin.

It's often said that you should use it on wet skin but the skin absorbs oil much more readily on dry skin. The water on the skin actually acts as a barrier to absorption.

A vegetable based oil is better absorbed than mineral oils too.

So, basically, I've been wasting my oil for no reason?

Tut.
