Choosing the Right Oil for your Skin

Filed Under: Anti-Aging,Beauty,Personal Care at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor
Let’s face it (no pun intended), facial oils are all the rage. It used to be that the mere thought of putting oil on your face was enough to make your skin crawl. But now, these plant-based oils are helping to, literally, wash away those long-held preconceptions by giving you a refreshing and radiant glow, naturally.

All Skin Types – Argan Oil

Known as “liquid gold”, argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the Moroccan argan tree. It’s rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. Argan Oil helps fight lines and wrinkles and minimize scars and stretch marks all while restoring moisture and tone.

Dry Skin – Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip oil is extracted from the seeds of Rosa canina and is rich in Omega-6 essential fatty acids. This oil can be used to aid skin cell renewal, resulting in a replinished, healthy glow. It’s amazing scar-healing properties makes it perfect for damaged skin, too!

Oily Skin/Combo Skin – Jojoba Oil

If you suffer from oily skin than jojoba oil is for you. It can help regulate oil production by mimicking sebum, the oil secreted from your sebaceous glands, helping to balance your skin’s oil production. Jojoba oil can also help heal acne and other blemishes, providing all the moisture and hydration the skin needs.

All Over Moisture – Coconut Oil

Due to coconut oil’s propensity for clogging pores, we definitely don’t recommend this for your face. The rest of your body, however, coconut oil is a must-have! It’s loaded with three fatty acids — capric, caprylic, and lauric — that have antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Plus it’s easy on the wallet and can be used for a variety of skin ailments including everything from diaper rash to razor burn, cellulite and more!
