Natural Oils for Healthy Skin
Do you feel like your skin needs some serious TLC? If you’ve been caught up with school or work and you haven’t been taking care of your pretty face, now is the time to give your skin the luxurious treatment it deserves. Keeping your skin hydrated with natural oils and quality beauty products is a good way to start.
According to Birchbox, natural argan, jojoba, and marula oils are beneficial to your skin, as they moisturize, protect, and treat the appropriate areas—helping prevent dry skin and wrinkles– while simultaneously reducing the visibility of scars and discoloration. Below, we’ve included information on each natural oil as well as top quality products recommended by Birchbox and yours truly.
This Moroccan oil is known for its anti-aging qualities as well as its ability to treat scars, decrease inflammation, and provide moisture to the skin. According to Natural News, because argan oil is rich in vitamin E, or tocopherols, wrinkles will become less noticeable with regular use. Argan oil also contains saponins which makes the skin soft and sterolins which helps boost skin metabolism.
Joboba oil helps treat acne-prone skin and skin infections. According to Livestrong, the non-greasy texture and ability of joboba oil to unclog pores makes this oil a great natural ingredient for acne-prone skin. Similarly, because joboba oil decreases inflammation, using this oil can help treat skin infections.
Perfect for oily skin, this newly discovered oil helps protect your skin from dryness and heat. According to Nature’s Gift, marula oil is perfect for summer weather, as it is lightweight and absorbs quickly. Birchbox also recommends marula oil as a remedy for sun damage.
