5 Of The Best Oils For Healthy Glowing Skin!
We’ve collated 5 of the most effective facial oils together with their benefits to help you make the right decision on your facial oil journey. Our personal tip is to start with jojoba oil which is a great all rounder and ticks lots of skin concern boxes. Enjoy!
Jojoba Oil isn’t exactly an oil but rather a botanical extract actually comprised of liquid wax esters. This means jojoba oil is structurally and chemically the most similar to human sebum, meaning it mimics the structure of the skin. Use it if you want to balance out sebum production and eliminate acne. Jojoba oil also contains beneficial minerals and nutrients which work as an emollient to soothe skin and provide all-day moisture. It’s also excellent to help even out skin tone and give clarity to your complexion. Simply massage a few drops onto your face after cleansing in the morning.
Rose Hip Seed Oil is one of the most powerful anti ageing skin moisturisers. It’s rich in essential fatty acids and contains vitamins E, C, D, and beta carotene. Use it to help protect and hydrate skin, fight free radical damage, and reduce wrinkles. It also rejuvenates the skin to restore elasticity, help to correct dark spots and reduce the appearance of scars. It truly is a wonder oil!
Sweet Almond Oil is great for softening and nourishing dry rough problem skin. It’s a great natural source of fatty acids and lipids which nourish and revitalise the skin without clogging the pores or leaving a greasy after-feel. Almond oil is easily absorbed into the skin and helps promote a clearer and brighter complexion. It’s excellent for helping to clear pigmentation and sunspots too. Almond oil is best used with your favourite moisturiser on top to really lock in the natural benefits for your skin!
Marula Oil comes from the African marula fruit and is a versatile product with a light texture and many benefits. Use it to reduce not only dryness, but also irritation and inflammation. The oil is rich in fatty acids and is said to contain 60% more antioxidants than most other oils, which makes it perfect in fighting ageing and sun damage. The oil also has antimicrobial properties, making it ideal for irritated or acne-prone skin.
Argan Oil is extracted from nuts of the Moroccan argan tree and is a soothing and powerful moisturiser for all skin types. Packed with vitamin E, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids its perfect for treating more severe skin conditions, such as eczema or rosacea. It also works to improve skin’s elasticity by fending off free radical damage, leaving skin radiant. Best of all, you can also use argan oil to massage into your nails as well as using it in your hair.
