Just as our hair needs oil for better growth and health, your skin does too! Essential oils have a number of healthy components in them. And different oils have different benefits. Essential Oils rejuvenate the skin and can help solve many skin issues as well. The idea of applying oil to the skin, especially when it is already oily and acne-prone, can be extremely intimidating but can be a great addition to your skincare regime.
Ever since I started using tea tree oil for my acne, I realized that there is no formula, no product, nothing that is quite like essential oils. The best part is that you can find ones that are completely organic and they are great for sensitive skin too. So, what are you waiting for?
Here is a small list of a few essential oils that can be a game changer for your skin:
Tea Tree Oil for Acne:
After reading many reviews and researches on how tea tree can treat acne along with the spots, I got my hands on it back in college. It was just like a natural substitute for the medical acne treatments and the results left me amazed! According to dermatologists, tea tree is a very gentle treatment for acne. For me, it’s been better than going for medical treatments full of harsh side effects. It is considered as effective as benzoyl peroxide.
Argan Oil for Aging:
Argan Oil is one of the most famous oils around the globe that is used by celebrities and renowned spas. For example, the skin care expert Josie Maran has her entire beauty products line based on this oil. The oil is full of fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamin E, all these ingredients make it highly effective for removing wrinkles and tightening skin. Plus, it is also non-greasy which makes it the best hydrating formula for those with oily skin.
Chamomile Oil for Dark Spots:
Chamomile Oil has gentle, soothing properties. Just like chamomile tea, the essential oil can relax the mind. It fights inflammation and can be used as an ointment. It’s perfect for minor cuts and abrasions. It works best on sensitive skin and it helps the skin stays soothed and relaxed after applying it. You can also use it as a good overnight mask for a healthy and youthful glow.
Olive oil for Extremely Dry Skin:
Because Olive Oil is used in cooking, I’m sure it’s hard to imagine applying it to the face. And probably worse if you have oily skin! However, it is a hydrating bomb for those with extremely dry skin. It is not only best for moisturizing but the fatty acids present in it also fight aging signs.
Rose Hip Oil for Scars:
Many consider Rose Hip Oil to have healing properties. Many find it the perfect oil to reduce and diminish scars. The oil has vitamin C which is great for scars. It also brightens the skin greatly. Plus, it also helps in removing the dead skin cells and promotes the generation of new cells.
