4 Natural Oils for Smooth and Radiant Skin
Using natural oils for skin and hair care has been practiced for centuries. Generations of people have used them for various moisturizing, protective, and antibacterial qualities. These simple substances have been overlooked with the growth of the modern cosmetic and wellness industries. Yet, they’ve had a bit of a resurgence in the public eye over the last decade, as people strive to find additive-free, affordable, and effective products.
Here are four natural oils to help you achieve smooth and radiant skin!
1) Sunflower Seed Oil
Sunflower seed oil is widely available, high in vitamin E, and absorbs easily into the skin, making it an excellent choice as a natural moisturizer. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that is essential for maintaining healthy skin. Antioxidants help donate electrons to free radical atoms to help stabilize them. If not stabilized, these atoms can cause damage over time, leading to health issues such as heart disease or lung cancer. The vitamin E in sunflower oil may also provide anti-inflammatory benefits for your skin.
2) Shea Butter
Derived from the nuts of the African shea tree, shea butter is a tallow-like substance that is commonly found in a solid form. Still, it melts at body temperature and is sometimes used as a moisturizer and hair product. Unrefined, organic shea butter can also be combined with olive oil or coconut oil to create a smoother texture for application.
3) Jojoba Oil
Jojoba is native to Mexico and the American Southwest, where its oils have been extracted from its seeds and used medicinally by Native American tribes for centuries. It's a lighter-feeling oil but deeply hydrating and full of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are integral to the health of your skin. It has been proven to:
- Soften rough cuticles
- Help relieve sunburn
- Boosts skin’s glow
- Nourishes and heals dry lips
- Fades fine lines and wrinkles
4) Rose Hip Seed Oil
Extracted from the seeds of wild rose bushes, rose hip seed oil has seen a surge in popularity and is increasingly found in facial skincare products that have moisturizing, anti-aging benefits. It is rich in vitamins A, C, E, and essential fatty acids. These fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and can improve signs of aging, pigmentation and moisturize the skin.
