Best essential oils for dry skin

There are very few women who can pride that they don’t face problems with their skin and take care of it with just a moisturizer only. For the rest of us, acne, dry skin, sensitive skin or aging skin are the very real challenges.

If you count yourself among them, know that you can have a smooth and clean skin using oils, but only if you choose it according to your skin type.

Dry skin lacks radiance and vitality and is prone to premature wrinkles. Therefore, an essential oil needs to moisturize deeply moisturized skin and to maintain the surface. You can try the following oils:

1. Coconut Oil

Many soaps and cleansing lotions commercially available have harsh chemicals in the composition and abundance of alcohol, which just makes you clean your skin of its natural oils, which can eventually lead to problems like clogged pores and acne. This is a vicious circle because you think that you’re doing your skin a favor, without knowing that actually, you are doing more damage than good .

So the coconut oil it’s the ideal cleanser for all skin types, even for the oily type as it gently removes any dirt resistant and even makeup. However, it does not “take away” none of your skin oils that naturally secrete. So you’ll have a clean complexion, and deeply hydrated.

It is good to know that the antioxidant properties of coconut oil help skin regain its shine, gently exfoliating dead skin and strengthening connective tissue. Massaging your skin with coconut oil is a fantastic and extremely simple way to prevent premature skin aging and wrinkles.

You can use coconut oil instead of moisturizer or you can combine it with other oils for the same effect.

2. Macadamia Oil

Macadamia oil is very delicate and leaves no traces of fat, so it’s easily absorbed by the skin. Another benefit offered by Macadamia oil is its ability to hydrate the skin. Using macadamia nut oil help combat dry skin sensation, because it is a natural moisturizer, which is absorbed through the pores in the skin very quickly. Macadamia oil is rich in palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-7, which moisturizes and protects skin. Because it’s so versatile and non-oily makes it a widely used ingredient in cosmetics and moisturizers.

With macadamia oil, you can prevent wrinkles. The high concentration of palmitoleic acid and oleic acid helps prevent premature aging of the skin and those annoying fine wrinkles .

For this, it is advisable to massage every night face and neck skin with macadamia oil.

3. Olive Oil

Because the cold or heat, pollution, stress, and fatigue leave their mark on the skin, it is highly recommended massaging the skin with olive oil daily for two to three weeks until the skin begins to regain its soft appearance. Thereafter, the oil can be used every other day. Being a strong moisturizing oil can replace the body cream for people with dry skin.

For smoothing wrinkles and strengthen facial muscles clay masks are recommended together with olive oil. They have effects on remineralization and revive tired skin. Vitamins and minerals contained in the oil and clay penetrate the pores and improving the blood circulation in the face.

4. Avocado Oil

It is a rich source of vitamin A and D, it is easily absorbed by the skin and moisturizes in depth, which is recommended as a basic ingredient in skincare products for the mature and dry skin.

Avocado oil, in contrast to other oils considerable, increases the production of collagen in the skin. The amount of collagen decreases with age, leading to skin aging and wrinkles. That is why this oil is used to counter the effects of aging.

Avocado oil is also an excellent remedy for people with skin problems such as acne, because of the healing and anti-inflammatory role.

5. Apricot Oil

Apricot oil is used as a good moisturizer and helps treat dry skin. Applying this oil to your skin, it will become smoother and softer to the touch.

The gamma-linolenic acid content of apricot oil is perfect for toning the skin and to maintain its firmness. Moreover, this product is rich in vitamins A and E which slows the aging process. Therefore, the use of apricot oil helps the skin to look younger without wrinkles or fine lines. Its anti-inflammatory properties are effective in curing eczema. Moreover, due to the characteristics of nutritious keep skin supple and healthy.

Oils are great for skin. If you suffer from redness then rose water is great to apply. I am a trainee massage therapist and we use grape oil a lot. Great for all skin.
