Best Essential Oils for Skin
Looking for a better way to healthier skin? The Secret is in Essential Oils prepared using Ayurvedic Methods from Herbs , Nuts and Organic Fruits or Vegetables. The two best essential oils for skin that we prescribed are cold pressed almond and coconut oils.
Almond Oil Benefits
Almond oil is full of many vitamins and minerals such vitamin E, vitamin A, mono-saturated fatty acids, protein, potassium, and zinc. Remember when we call the almond small yet mighty? We are not kidding.
Vitamin E happens to be an extremely powerful antioxidant. Oxidative stress is a major cause of the deterioration of your skin’s collagen layer. As collagen is responsible for your skin to look supple and wrinkle-free, you want to get rid of oxidative stress. That’s where our almond oil comes in.
Thanks to Vitamin E in this oil, one can keep skin cells healthy, protect skin from UV radiation damage, and help your skin look smooth, soft, and free of wrinkles.
The fatty acids in almond oil help your skin retain moisture and can heal irritated skin.
Plus, the vitamin A can help in acne reduction. Since the oil easily penetrates into the skin, it’s great for cleaning out the dirt and oil that accumulates in your pores. This prevents blackheads / acne from appearing.
Coconut Oil for Skin
Coconut oil is the best natural moisturizer, especially for your face. As a matter of fact, it is gentle enough to be used even in sensitive areas such as under your eyes and on lips.
Since coconut oil is a fat from raw coconuts, its emollient properties makes it beneficial for different skin types, such as dry, or normal-to-dry skin, when used as a moisturizer.
Coconut oil like almond oil also contain fatty acids which hydrate and protect our skin. These acids include natural lineolic acid (vitamin F), which helps skin to retain moisture and lauric acid, which possesses antibacterial properties.
If you have dry, flaky skin, using coconut oil instead of your regular moisturizer. It will soften your skin and leave it looking soft and fresh in the morning.
