Essential oils are taking over whether you like it or not and they are here to stay. Everywhere you turn there is talk about them; sometimes they get negative reviews, but most of the time you hear people saying that essential oils are a miracle cure all! I mean there are essential oils for everything. From helping rid of a headache to body detoxification. But we are here today to talk about taking care of your skin using essential oils, so let’s forget everything you knew about those expensive facial oils and take a moment to learn how essential oils could be better for you and your skincare routine.
Skin Care Using Essential Oils
Frankincense oil is highly recommended because of it being cytol phylactic (like many other essential oils) meaning that it protects existing skin cells while encouraging new cell growth. This makes it great for reducing wrinkles and scars, tightening skin, and soothing dry skin. This essential oil has other benefits as well, such as anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities that make it great for skin that is prone to acne.
Carrot Seed Oil
With its rejuvenating effect, carrot seed oil helps smooth skin and works to regenerate cells. This oil can help fade scars and will improve the tone of aging skin.
Rose oil contains anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial compounds that help with defining skin tone and texture. It can also be very beneficial in helping skin conditions such as dermatitis and psoriasis.
Patchouli oil can help with oily or dry skin or even in some cases if you happen to have both oily and dry skin (sounds impossible but believe me it isn’t). It alleviates acne conditions, inflammation, eczema, and irritated skin. Like other oils, it too helps fade scars and help with aging skin. This oil also has anti-fungal properties that can help with issues such as athletes foot.
Taking care of your skin with essential oils is an easy and an inexpensive alternative to all of those skin care treatments you see advertised everywhere. Not only is it inexpensive but there are guaranteed results to help your skin, whatever the problem is. These are just a few of the abundant amount of essential oils that help keep your skin happy and healthy.
