Oils get a bad wrap, but these essential oils will actually improve your skin.
Many women would never put oil anywhere near their face, much less on it! We have been told time and time again that oils lead to acne. But using essential oils can actually help prevent acne and keep your skin healthy and beautiful! Read on for a list of essential oils that I would recommend trying:
One of my recent favorites is grapeseed oil, which is, as the name suggests, extracted from the seeds of grapes. Grapeseed oil is used widely in skincare and cosmetic products because of its moisturizing properties. It is also a great source of fatty acids and vitamin E—both are great for your skin—and has astringent properties that will tighten and tone your skin.
Three times a week before bed, I use a cotton ball to apply grapeseed oil to my face. The result is moisturized, shining skin! You can even use grapeseed oil if you have sensitive skin, as it causes no skin irritation; actress Emma Stone uses natural grapeseed oil because her allergies prevent her from using other skin products. “I pretty much smell like grape all the time,” she says.
