Everyone has been told for years that oils are bad for your skin. Oil gradually grew synonymous with acne - and that’s not a scene people like to envision.
From a scientific perspective, the one ingredient we’ve been afraid of is actually the most useful skin care ingredient on the market. Oils occur naturally in your skin.Applying essential oils directly to your skin is the most effective anti-ageing method that exists. Why? It comes down to what our skin is for. Skin is essentially a protective layer, to shelter our insides from:
In the surface layer of our skin, we have layers of oils called lipids that do all of those things above. They are the protective barrier to hold moisture in and keep out stuff that shouldn’t be in there. As we grow older, our skin produces fewer lipids which dehydrates the skin, makes us more susceptible to unhealthy cells and prone to wrinkles.
So we need to replace those lipids with oils. Here are the best 4 oils on the market:
Cold Pressed Avocado Oil is one of the richest sources of beneficial fatty acids in the world. It is really great for treating acne, blackhead, eczema and other forms of skin inflammation, as well as moisturizing your skin.
Sunflower Oil contains Vitamin C, E, K, Omega 3, 6 & 9 (fatty acids), amino acids and antioxidants.
Coconut Oilis a natural antibacterial and antifungal. It also contains a lot of fatty acids and Vitamin E.
Pumpkin Seed Oil -is rich in vitamin E, zinc, omega 3- and 6- fatty acids plus antioxidants! It locks in a ton of moisture without clogging your pores.
Look for a product that contains all four of these oils, and your skin will thank you.
