Benefits Of Essential Oils In Skin Care

Natural beauty comes from the inside out, and the outside in. Everything that you put in and on your body goes into your bloodstream. The purity of what you put on your skin is as important as the purity of what you eat. Many people are looking for more natural and pure ways to treat their skin. Want to know the best essential oils for your skin type? Here's a quick look at just a few essential oils you can use to improve the feel, texture, and look of your skin. Always perform a patch test when using oils for the first time.

Apricot Kernel Oil One of the best carrier oils for creating skin-healing oil blends. Rich in omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid, it helps to hydrate and nourish skin while vitamins A and E contained in the oil encourage regeneration of skin cells and collagen production to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This oil is especially helpful for hydrating and healing very dry skin.

Sweet Almond Oil Another carrier oil, Sweet Almond oil contains large amounts of vitamins E and K meaning that this oil not only helps skin to regenerate and maintain elasticity, it also promotes better circulation.

Argan Oil Comprised of roughly 80% fatty acids which work wonders to hydrate skin, restore elasticity, and fade fine lines and wrinkles making this an excellent carrier oil for anti-aging serums.

Rosehip Seed Oil Most well-known for its high concentration (the highest of any pure botanical oil) of natural vitamin A all-trans retinoic acid (or ATRA as it is often abbreviated.) ATRA is known for its potent ability to reduce the depth of wrinkles, fade fine lines, and promote over-all healing of damaged skin by boosting the growth rate of new cells and increasing collagen production.

Carrot Seed Oil Full of antioxidant carotenoids which boost the body's immune response to UV rays, helping to prevent sun damage. Carotenoids also stimulate the rejuvenation of skin cells, aid in the detoxification process, and can help to heal chronic skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

Geranium Oil An effective anti-inflammatory. It also helps to lighten age spots and even out overall skin tone. Geranium oil also improves circulation under the skin's surface, which aids in cell regeneration, making it useful for fading scars, wrinkles, and other visible imperfections in the skin.

Neroli Oil A powerful antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic that is also great for soothing damaged or irritated skin, healing scars, improving circulation, reducing lines and wrinkles, as well as for fading stretch marks.

Frankincense Oil Helps to regenerate skin cells, reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Frankincense is also great for evening tone, and balancing skin's pH.

Helichrysum Oil Is great for those with oily skin. In addition to this, it's one of the few essential oils that contain “diketones,” which can help reduce the appearance of age spots and discoloration.
