The greasy nature of oil makes it a no go area many people, not knowing that there are hidden benefits obtained from using them.
Oil is the black sheep of the beauty world. But just as there are good oils for your diet, the right natural oils can keep your skin moisturized, smooth, and glowing — and even fight breakouts — without any slimy residue.
Essential oils have many therapeutic benefits for the skin, bringing about healthy skin and a smooth, radiant glow for your facial features.
One area they can help much is in the fight against acne. The benefits of essential oils on acne can eliminate current acne and leave your skin beautiful and healthy.
Our skin is sensitive to environmental changes, hormonal changes, stress, diet and oily buildup that may lead to the problem of acne.
While there are many commercial anti-aging products available, most of these formulas are expensive and contain potentially harmful chemicals which actually damage your skin in the long-term.
Instead of pouring money into these beauty products, why not key into using oil obtained naturally.
Natural Oils for the Skin:
Lavender is considered an all-purpose essential oil since its uses include mental rejuvenation and lots of other therapeutic remedies. Lavender will work for the skin, calms both mind and body, heals and soothes, to mention just a few.
- Avocado Oil
Avocado oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which help to revive the collagen production under the skin. Our body starts to lose its firmness once the production of collagen slows down. Furthermore, avocado oil has got the same texture as those of the oils secreted through the body. Thus it easily absorbed within the skin pores and displays results quickly.
- Olive Oil
With regards to oil, extra virgin olive oil packs a nutrient-rich punch. It has high levels of vitamins A and E for healthier hair, skin, and eyes, as well as chlorophyll and magnesium. If you start noticing that your skin is losing its sheen and softness, it’s time you turn to using Olive oil and within couple of days you will see that the dull and loose skin starts getting nourished and becomes firm and flawless.
- Jojoba Oil
Jojoba oil is comparable to human body oils and thus there isn’t any such risk involved. Actually, this skin tightening oil also aids in getting rid of acne and pimples easily and quickly, without leaving behind any scar. Your main apprehension while applying appearance oil is that your skin might react to it. Oil massages can occasionally end up in acne and breakouts on skin.
- Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is the essential oil taken from the leaves of the Australian tree Melaleuca alternifolia. Found in many natural acne remedies, it helps kill bacteria in the pores and hair follicles that lead to blemishes and, luckily for those who can’t find relief fast enough, it penetrates the skin quickly. Using tea tree oil, being an astringent, calms and cools your skin, but make sure not apply too much, since it will feel like it’s hailing snow bullets in your face for about half an hour. Then you definitely get the cooling goodness with no stinging. It’s a great acne treatment since it calms irritated skin and will take off the last layer of dirt and oil once you wash.
