The latest anti-ageing cream always seems to promise the world and then some. With its shiny packaging, an ingredients list that sounds amazing, and messages of youthful complexion, it can seem like the answer to all your worries about ageing skin.
Rarely, however, do these lotions and potions target the root of the problem because it’s the skin cells that need help to become firmer, nourished and healthy. If you’re still searching for the solution to your skincare problems, natural oils should be your first port of call. Read on to see which oils provide the best anti-ageing effects and help keep skin nourished.
Juniper Oil is an essential oil that has a ton of health benefits. As well as being able to boost digestion and act as a relaxant to aid sleep, Juniper Oil protects your skin and as a result, it looks younger.
With its natural antibacterial and antimicrobial abilities, Juniper Oil can help fight against skin irritation, easing conditions such as rashes and eczema. These types of inflammation can accelerate the speed of premature skin ageing, so incorporating Juniper Oil into your daily routine can help reduce the speed of ageing, leaving you with healthy-looking skin.
As an antibacterial Juniper Oil can also be used as a home remedy against acne and to reduce stretch marks.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil contains high levels of tocopherol (Vitamin E) and is rich in antioxidants, both of which have effective anti-ageing properties.
As a carrier oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil is easily absorbed and helps other oils sink and absorb quickly, and locks in moisture. Due to its high level of antioxidants, it can also extend the lifespan of other oils and help them keep their aroma. Helping skin retain moisture is vital when it comes to keeping skin looking youthful, as skin becomes nourished and plumper, reducing the visibility of wrinkles.
If you’re worried that all this oil talk will result in a greasy look, rest assured that Meadowfoam Seed Oil is effective in balancing your skin’s natural oil production by managing the production of sebum.
A natural anti-inflammatory, Grape Seed Oil can help keep your skin under control when you’re suffering a flare up, whether it’s from allergies or a skin condition. Rich in Vitamins C, D and E, Grape Seed Oil is also another ingredient key in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes and scars. The oil’s restructuring properties make it great for helping skin retain its structure, which reduces the rate at which wrinkles appear.
Sweet Almond Oil
Sweet Almond Oil is a natural moisturiser that is perfect for any skin type and is particularly friendly to those who suffer from dry, flaky skin. Containing antioxidants, Sweet Almond Oil helps fight free radicals that can speed up the ageing process, making your skin feel more youthful for longer.
This oil is also packed with moisture and as a result, keeps your skin feeling and looking supple without leaving a greasy residue.
Cacay Oil is the beauty industry’s best-kept secrets, and with all its benefits it’s easy to see why. Using Cacay Oil as part of your everyday skincare routine provides deep nourishment, not just after it’s applied but on a long-term basis. As a natural source of Vitamin A and E it encourages skin cell production, which means it helps keep skin firm and healthy, while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Cacay Oil also helps protect your skin’s hydrolipidic layer, which is important in keeping your skin protected and free from allergies, infections and irritations that can speed up ageing.
Its bountiful number of nutrients and natural vitamins make Cacay Oil the perfect ingredient as part of your everyday skincare routine for youthful, healthy-looking skin.
