Five reasons to add plant based oils to your skin care routine
- It may reduce your wrinkles.
Too much unprotected ultraviolet light is a set-up for free radical damage — and that means wrinkles and sunspots galore. Plant based oils are packed with antioxidants, which prevent further aging. If your skin tends to be on the shiny side and you're nervous about trying oils, start with a night time regimen. After washing your face at night, dabbing a tiny bit of you oil to the forehead, each cheek, nose, and chin can be beneficial.
- Good for dry skin.
Plummeting temps and cranked-up heaters suck moisture straight from the skin. Oils are the ideal antidote to dry, flaky skin and rough, rosy cheeks — and they can be much more effective at moisturizing than your standard over-the-counter lotions and creams. For softer skin and hair, applying a pea-sized amount of oil to your driest areas. Baobab Seed oil is packed with hydrating omega-3 fatty acids, making it is a good choice for sensitive skin.
- They really protect your skin.
Because oils are lipophilic, they can penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water and other moisturizing goodness in, while keeping toxins and other bad stuff out. Oils may also help fortify and strengthen our own natural skin barrier. This is especially important for big city dwellers who need extra protection against pollutants and smog, a known source of unwanted wrinkles.
- A perfect primer for makeup.
Baobab Seed oil zips through the top of skin at lightening quick speed, quickly settling comfortably into the areas that need hydrating the most. This gives an immediate plumping effect and creates the perfect canvas for your makeup — and the smoother your skin, the better your whole face will look.
- May calm down rashes.
Plant based oils have anti-inflammatory properties as well, helping to quell irritated skin.
The research-supported facts about what plant oils can do for skin show that the right plant oil or a blend of plant oils, can make a remarkable difference for dry, flaky, or dehydrated skin. Facial oils are for anyone whose skin could use a boost of nourishing, smoothing renewal, especially when seasonal cold or drier climates disturb your skin. Apply directly to skin by itself (after washing and toning) or follow with a cream moisturizer.
