Best Natural Oils For Achieving Beautiful, Even, Glowing Skin

Using natural oils is a big trend in the beauty industry today. However, natural oils as a beauty and skin regime were used over 3000 years ago! This beauty therapy was used by Greeks, Egyptians and Romans.

Using oils on your skin has some incredible benefits. Natural oils contain properties which help in not only healing and soothing damaged skin, but also revitalising and rehydrating the skin to produce a shiny glow! From reducing stretch marks and minimising wrinkles to anti-ageing therapy and deep hydration, the key is to figure out which oil caters to your skin type.

 Today's post will help you discover different types of oils, including the most suitable for all skin types.

Some of these oils are inexpensive and free of chemical. They also help with the treatment of the skin, making it silky smooth to feel while adding a glow. Oils can be used as skin conditioners, make up removers, deep moisturisers, and even to revive dull/ damaged hairs!

Argan Oil (Great for Anti-aging): 

This oil is created by extracting oils from argan tree nuts. Its referred to as the "liquid gold" and comes from Morroccco. Its well known for its anti-ageing and restorative powers. Rich in Vitamin A and E, its also contains Omega-9 used for revitalising and de-stressing the skin.

                                                     Coconut Oil (Deep Moisturiser)

Coconut oil is one of the best and healthiest oils amongst natural oils. Apart from its deep moisturising qualities, it also contains protein required for healthy, glowing skin. Coconut oils fights against wrinkles, stretch marks, uneven skin tone and also tightens loose skin. 

Black Currant Oil (Repairs Damaged Skin):

Great to treat damaged skin as a result of using bleaching creams, eczema, post laser treatment, sun burns, etc. Its rich in vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which also helps slow down the skin's ageing process. Its great for healing scars as well. (This oil can cause allergic reactions, therefore try out on small portion of skin before use).  

Chamomile Oil (For Sensitive Skin)

Chamomile oil is a natural skin soother and contains calming effects great for skin irritations, redness, burns and bruises, including other skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rashes, etc. Do try a skin test to make sure your skin is not allergic to chamomile oil.
