Essential Oils for Skin to Improve and Protect from Damage

essential oils for skin

There are so many products available out there to take good care of your skin. But I would like to recommend these natural essential oils for skin care. Natural is always better. 

Most of us would do almost anything to keep our skin young and vigorous. However, today we are lucky enough to be able to do just that without having to do almost anything.

Sometimes all we need comes from nature itself, either through loving grandma’s favourite recipes or from other alternative homemade recipes. No doubt nature is the safest and most economical way to skin rejuvenation.

Although there are many products that promise amazing results, most of these products are full of chemicals, and can cause allergic reactions, rashes and some other nasty side effects.

7 natural essential oils for skin care that will help revive your skin without any side effects:

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is great to help relieve dry skin conditions. It does wonders for chapped lips and dry skin in general. Select a coconut oil that has been cold pressed as they retain more of the nutrients that are beneficial for our skin.

Granada oil

Granada Oil is high in antioxidants which has a lot of skin benefits; for use on the face especially. It helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It is also ideal for skin susceptible to staining because it does not clog up pores.

Jojoba oil

Jojoba is a type of shrub that grows in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, Southern California and Mexico. It is excellent for preventing moisture loss from the skin. It can also help soothe irritated skin, and can reduce redness. If you live in a dry climate or you have dry skin, this oil can be especially beneficial to you.

Marula oil

Not as well known as other oils, but it is becoming more and more popular. Marula oil has been used to protect the skin against dehydration. It has a high content of essential fatty acids for skin such as omega 6 and 9 oils and it is also high in antioxidants. So, it also helps prevent damage from free radicals, and can help reverse some of the effects of sun damage.

Argan oil

This oil comes from Morocco and is made from the seeds of the Argan tree. Just like the Argan tree is well adapted to life in the desert, it’s oil can help your skin during dry periods. It is a natural moisturizer and works to soften your face, neck, hands and even hair. It also has vitamin E, which can help reduce acne and other skin disorders.
