Weight Loss MythsApril 1, 2014
I know my fellow Floridians, I get it, the thought of applying oil to the face in our hot humid climate is a little scary. But after doing some research and testing it out myself I must say, it just might be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
It turns out there are tons of benefits we can get from these oils. Yes, even you, with oily skin can benefit from them!
Here are just a few we can go over.
Argan oil, derived from the fruit of a tree that grows in Morocco, has been dubbed “liquid gold.” This oil is super rich in vitamin E. Leslie S. Baumann, MD, an expert in the area of cosmetic ingredients says, argan oil may improve skin ailments such as eczema, psoriasis, wrinkles, and dry skin. She also recommends olive, safflower, walnut, avocado, and evening primrose oils for dry skin.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant. When applied topically, it interacts directly with the skin cells, neutralizing free radicals in the skin and preventing many signs of aging, as well as skin cancer risks. As an oil, vitamin E can also help improve skin hydration. Some evidence points to the use of vitamin E to speed cellular regeneration on the skin, which can help the healing process for scars and acne.
***When applying this oil its best to use just a drop before bed and allow a few minutes to absorb.
Acne Prone Skin
Tea Tree Oil is an oil product that has been extracted from the leaves of the Australian Melalauca Alternafolia tree. It contains antiseptic, anti-fungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties which clears all acne present on skin. The product has an active acne-fighting ingredient called terpinen-4-ol which is found naturally in the leaves of the plant. This ingredient suppresses the skin’s natural inflammatory response. It is found in many acne fighting skin care products or simply on its own.
Black Currant Oil is perfect for skin that has been traumatized in any way, such as after a laser treatment, too much time in the sun or inflamed acne (even the one you get for picking, shame on you!). This reparative treatment is perfect because it’s rich in fatty acids and has anti-inflammatory properties. It even works on eczema!
The oil, produced from black currants by a low heat technique (cold-pressed), is extremely beneficial for the skin. Its antioxidant properties can nourish your dry and damaged skin and restore its natural glow without any adverse effect.
As your cells get nutrients from black currants, they become soft and replenished, reducing the signs of aging.
The anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties of black currants help you fight against a number of skin disorders. Because of this, black currant oil is used topically for healing eczema, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.
These are just a select few of great oils for the skin. So don’t fear–try it for yourself.
Oh! Another thing… when it comes to oils, I highly recommend using pure and organic products to avoid any toxins being absorbed into the skin.
It’s ok to spend a little more on your skin–remember you get what you pay for. Your face is the first thing people see, invest in it — believe me it’s worth it.
