8 Natural Oils to Supercharge Your Skincare Routine

8 Natural Oils to Supercharge Your Skincare Routine

Picture yourself at an airy hut located on a gorgeous beach covered in scented oils getting a rejuvenating Thai massage. And although the idea of a massage along with the resplendence of the background may have started a positive reaction in your brain at this very moment, I actually would like to talk about the best natural oils you need to add to your skincare instead; oils that warrant beautiful and supple skin.

A Few Words about Natural Oils…

The simplistic list of ingredients which make up natural oils is the reason why they are better than cosmetic products that contain chemicals. Natural oils pump vitamins that nurture and nourish your skin, and also do not cause allergic reactions because of the absence of artificially created ingredients; that is provided your skin is not sensitive to the very source of the oil. And these oils generally work well for a variety of skin types and suit people of all ages.

Natural oils can be used in different ways, so you don’t even have to apply them topically to take advantage of their benefits. A few of these natural oils work well when they are steamed or added to your bath. With a bit of exploration you will gradually be able to find the method that works best for you when using these oils.

If you are committed to keeping your skin healthy and beautiful, then read through my curated selection of the 8 natural oils to supercharge your skincare routine.

1. Coconut Oil

Treat your skin to coconut oil and you will find that it has the ability to moisturize and nourish skin from your head to toes. Coconut oil is also rich in Lauric acid which helps combat fungi and bacteria feasting on your body. The effects of coconut oil can go beyond your skin – use it to nourish your hair by applying the oil from the middle right to the tips and wait for the incredible results.

2. Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree oil works like magic in a bottle and when used in the right concentration is known to be very effective in the treatment of acne {usually a 5% concentration}; by soothing acne prone skin and reducing the redness or puffiness caused by acne. It is wise to use a moisturizing cream generously when treating your skin with tea tree oil {it’s a very strong natural oil}, as frequent use may end up making your skin very dry.

3. Jojoba Oil

I personally like the fun way in which we pronounce Jojoba, it has a ring of cheerfulness to it. Rich in Vitamin A, B and E, Jojoba oil will ensure oxygen delivery to your skin thereby rejuvenating it and adding a resplendent healthy glow that can beat your entire makeup bag.

4. Hemp Oil

If you have sensitive skin and your use of makeup leads to annoying breakouts, then you must consider using Hemp oil. It is one of the best natural oils for treating acne, as well as removing any redness and scarring caused due to a breakout. Hemp oil is known to increase skin photo-sensitivity so remember to store it in a cool and dark place, and keep this for your after-work nights at home.

5. Macadamia Oil

This oil is especially great for those who live in big cities, spend a lot of time outdoors and are exposed to the dirt and grime of polluted environments. Macadamia Oil has a list of healthy ingredients including Vitamins B and E that aid in oxidation, and calcium, zinc, phosphorus & potassium that will provide your skin with the nourishment it needs while keeping it smooth and protected.

6. Hazelnut Oil

The gentle hydrating and conditioning properties of Hazelnut oil makes it a perfect natural moisturizer for sensitive and dry skin.

Another reason I love Hazelnut oil is because it is not messy. When I am not wearing a lot of makeup – foundation or contouring – I can quickly cleanse my skin in the washroom at a restaurant or in my car before an important meeting. Without doubt a new must-have product in every woman’s purse.

7. Castor Oil

Castor oil has healing properties that help with skin inflammation caused by dry skin, acne and sunburns. And, when used topically penetrates deeply and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in your skin thereby slowing down the ageing process.

You could also make your eyelashes look lustrous and long with the help of Castor oil. Apply a little Castor oil to your eyelashes and eyebrows before you go to bed and let the oil work its magic overnight. Wash off in the morning.

8. Avocado Oil

The antioxidants present in Avocado oil provide protection against free radicals ensuring that your skin stays firm, smooth and rejuvenated.

The oil can also be used as a facial moisturizer; if you do not want to use it as an everyday moisturizer, then you can blend it into your night cream or face mask to take advantage of its benefits.

 

Note: Your skin is a beautiful gift from nature, so nourish it by keeping your skincare routine as natural as you can. This list of the best natural oils for skincare can help you replace the harmful chemicals of suspicious cosmetic products you may be using now. If you began to delve in the realms of natural products, you may forget visiting the cosmetic store again.
