Top oils for beauty

Top oils for beauty

1.Moroccan Oil is the latest hair healer to hit the internet, international celebrity swear by it, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and the cast of Glee to name but a few.

The precious oil uses pressed argan oil from the Moroccan argan tree, which contains high levels of vitamin E and other essential fatty acids which soften and strenghten damaged hair.

We loved it’s light formula – just a few drops are needed for long hair – and unlike some serums, hair is not weighed down and there are no unwelcome greasy side effects. Just healthy, shiny, defined hair.

2. Rosehip seed oil strenghtens the skin whilst aromatic rose and frankincense soothe and calm. Make it part of your bedtime beauty regime to wake with a fresh and youthful complexion.

3. Olive oil

When massaged onto dry skin the silky smooth oil unclogs pores, and sweeps away make-up and impurities, and as it’s an oil based formula your skin won’t feel tight and dry after cleansing. Whilst the hint of rosemary leaf oil gives your face an invigorating freshness.

4. Jojoba oil (grown in Northwestern Mexico, California, and Arizona) contains micro-elements such as zinc, copper, silicon, iodine, chromium, and vitamins E and B. It closely resembles your own skin sebum and your skin’s own lubricating medium, giving jojoba a natural affinity to the skin and scalp. It easily absorbs without making the skin feel greasy or tacky and it does not clog pores.

Jojoba oil has exceptional skin-softening properties, as well as the ability to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, promoting suppleness and rejuvenation. Try adding a few drops of jojoba oil to your anti-aging creams, body lotions and conditioners, but the oil also stands well on its own for skin, hair and nail care.

5. Lavender Oil

Use on cuticles, patches of dry skin and even scars to help skin healing. And with it’s aromatic lavendar fragrance Superskin Concentrate also aids restful sleep. Wake up radiant.

6. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree. The tea tree was named by eighteenth century sailors, who made tea that smelled like nutmeg from the leaves of the tree growing on the swampy southeast Australian coast.

Tea tree oil is applied to the skin (used topically) for infections such as acne, fungal infections of the nail, lice, athlete’s foot (tinea pedis). It is also used topically as a local antiseptic for cuts and abrasions, for burns, insect bites and stings, boils.

7. Sweet Almond Oil

To get the best benefits from the almond oil, one should pour two drops on their fingertips and massage the oil on the face, paying special attention to any acne prone or dry areas.  The greatest advantage of almond oil for skin care is that it is suitable for all skin types.  Furthermore, almond oil is not greasy and can be easily absorbed into the skin and can be used on oily skin as well as dry skin.

Benefits of sweet almond oil for skin care are:

Soothing for skin rashes and skin irritations

Natural delay of the skin aging process

Lightening of dark circles under eyes

Smooths and softens skin

Complexion improvement as it ‘whitens’ the skin

Relief from itchy and inflamed skin

Almond oil as an anti-aging treatment

8. Coconut oil

Coconut oil is often referred to as “the healthiest oil on earth.” Its essential proteins and capric and lauric acids fight wrinkles, and tone and tighten skin while nourishing healthy hair. As nature’s richest source of MCFAs (medium-chain fatty acids) coconut oil is easily absorbed by the body, strengthening your skin’s connective tissues therefore also promoting a healthy scalp, and reinforcing lackluster hair strands caused by sun, heat and chemical damage.

For a special scalp and hair treatment, massage in one tablespoon and then wrap with a warm towel and shower cap for 15 minutes. Follow with light shampoo and cool rinse.
