For the longest time and as far back as I can remember, I have always been interested in anything to do with hair and beauty. In fact, at one point, I thought I would work in the hair and beauty industry. I take very keen interest in skin care products and beauty oils are no exception. I like the fact that these oils are natural and right now they’re taking the beauty industry by storm!
A Few Facts About Natural Oils
- These naturals oils are so easily absorbed into the skin that even people with oily skin like me can use them without worrying about clogged pores
- They are rich in anti-oxidants and a good remedy for many hair and skin concerns
- Natural oils are free from parabens, a preservative that’s widely used in most cosmetics and which many claims have linked to the rise in breast cancer
Some of The Best Natural Beauty Oils
Currently touted as the wonder oil of the moment, I recently wrote about this oil as one of the most popular ‘multi-tasking’ natural oil. Coconut oil has found itself a firm place in the hearts of many people.
It is said to be the best at keeping skin looking young, and is being praised for its ability to protect skin from free radicals, thereby acting as an anti-ageing agent.
Coconut oil is has the ability to penetrate the deeper layers of skin, and is rich is lauric acid, which is very good at treating inflammation.
This wonder oil has found pride of place in many a household, from the kitchen, to the bathroom; and can be used in cooking, on skin and hair, on cracked heels; its uses are endless!
Perhaps one of the better-known organic oils, Argan oil is also one of the oldest. Ask any woman if they have heard of it and I’m willing to bet that most will have used it on their hair at some point or other. This comes as no surprise as Argan oil promotes stronger, glossier hair and is often sold as a stand-alone hair oil or is listed among the most active ingredients in other hair products.
Argan oil contains Vitamin E, therefore making it a very good hair softener. It can also be used to protect hair from harmful UV rays, as well as protection against heating devices such as hairdryers, curling irons and tongs. It’s especially good for colour treated and frizzy hair. It also guards against split ends, the bane of many women across the world.
Sweet Almond Oil
This oil is best for soft, smooth skin, and is very easily absorbed into the skin. It’s very good at sealing moisture in and gives skin a soft, supple texture. What most people don’t know is that this fantastic oil has properties that may protect skin against the harmful effects of UV rays.
Rich in Vitamin E, research suggests it can aid in repairing scars.
Rosa Mosqueta Oil
Rosa Mosquesta is rich in Vitamin A, which is well known for its ability to effectively tackle acne. It contains more Vitamin C than oranges and has other ingredients known to be vital in tissue regeneration. It is known to fade age spots, heal scars, relieve eczema and psoriasis and even out skin tone.
If you decide to buy essential oils, always choose unrefined, organic versions and avoid synthetic, scented oils. Unscented oils are always the best.
