It is a fact that one thing all women have in common, women of all ages and throughout all times, is a desire to have a perfect complexion. If you are looking for a way to rejuvenate skin that has fallen victim to the ravages of time or are looking for a way to treat those blemishes that seem to pop up daily, there are natural ways to provide the essential nutrients your skin needs to literally glow with health. Here are 6 great oils for a perfect complexion, some of which just might surprise you!
Sweet Almond Oil
One of the least known of all the beneficial skincare oils is sweet almond oil. Being rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, Vitamin E, zinc, potassium, essential amino acids along with other vitamins and minerals, this is one powerful moisturizing and nourishing agent.
It wasn’t until recent years that many of the benefits of grapeseed oil began surfacing. Modern science has helped to identify constituents in these tiny seeds that can improve the quality of your skin in ways that are unique to grapeseeds that contain high levels of flavonoids, oligomeric procyanidins, or OPC for short. The main benefit here is the antioxidant properties that help to cleanse the skin while at the same time adding vital nutrients.
For this reason, experts such as Sonya Dakar Skin Clinic advise the use of grapeseed oil face wash that cleanses free radicals that cause wrinkling while adding nutrients that help in the production of collagen. You might be interested to know that the OPCs found in grapeseed oil are 50 times more powerful than those found in vitamin E. That alone says it all, but don’t forget that grapeseed oil also contains resveratrol, another powerful antioxidant.
Those suffering from acne and other skin conditions that result in swollen red blemishes will be happy to know that flaxseed oil is one of the most powerful natural anti-inflammatories on the market. Not only can swelling be reduced but puffy, redness can also be reduced as well. Many people find that flaxseed oil is effective against not only acne but rosacea, psoriasis and dermatitis as well. With its Omega-3 fatty acids, flaxseed oil is hard to beat when seeking natural oils to speed healing and promote healthier skin.
Hoya Flower Oil
This is an ingredient that is extremely rare but at the same time so highly recommended for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hoya flower oil also is known to be an agent that naturally ‘lifts’ sagging skin while improving skin tone, stimulating the production of collagen while also helping the skin to naturally increase the cells within the epidermis. All in all, it’s a truly remarkable find only really discovered this century for the many benefits it affords even though it has been used for centuries in Asia.
Passion Fruit Oil
Extremely high in Vitamin C, passion fruit oil is a powerful antioxidant that not only helps to clear blemishes but promotes younger, healthier looking skin. In addition, this particular nutrient (Vitamin C) is known to fight infections of the skin and promote faster healing of wounds.
Fig Seed Oil
Typically taken from the Barbary fig, fig seed oil is high in Linoleic acid that is also known for healing properties. Also, linoleic acid helps to soften and hydrate the epidermis which provides a softer, more youthful glow.
If you use no other oils on your face, these 6 will provide all the benefits you need to promote a perfect complexion. Used alone they are powerful, but in conjunction with each other you will find no better combination to promote a younger, healthier skin tone than you had imagined possible.
