If you have joined the movement to use natural products on your body, then it's likely you are in your phase of relentlessly searching the internet for effective products to use. Even if you have been a part of the natural beauty movement for a while, there's always new information coming out.
To help you on your natural ingredient skincare journey, we have compiled a list of natural oils that are amazing for your skin, that maybe you don't know a lot about. You might want to incorporate these into your regimen in their natural form or keep an eye out for them in the ingredients of some of our products (I'll share a list below).
1. Almond oil
This nutty oil is brimming full of health benefits that can help your skin look amazing. Almond oil contains a substantial amount of vitamin E, a vitamin that has been worshipped in the skincare industry for decades.
Potassium, proteins and zinc are also present in almond oil. Proteins help your skin to repair and aids in collagen production. Zinc helps skin rejuvenation and even protect it from UV rays.
2. Avocado oil
The antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents in avocado oil help your skin stay smooth, strong, and elastic
The beta carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E found in avocado oil help moisturize and protect your skin from damaging UV rays and also increases collagen metabolism.
3. Coconut oil
It's likely that you have heard many praises being sung about this incredible oil. If you haven't then where have you been? Coconut oil works wonders for a wide variety of things from removing make-up and replenishing hair to moisturising the skin.
Coconut oil is full of those essential fatty acids, offering anti-oxidant qualities, hydrating the skin and calming symptoms of external stressors such as redness.
4. Olive oil
I don't know if you've heard but JLo credits her amazing youthful face to one ingredient, Olive Oil! Now, we might not believe that is the only thing she's using (ahem.. cough botox cough) however, we know that Olive Oil is pretty amazing when it comes to your skin.
Olive oil is also an antioxidant, so it might help prevent or reverse damage from cancer-causing ultraviolet radiation. It has a very high concentration of an ingredient called squalene which is what gives Olive Oil the extra antioxidant boost. Olive Oil has many vitamins, including A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E. If you’re prone to acne, using a soap made with Olive Oil decrease your acne by killing off the bacteria that causes the acne. Olive Oil is also known to moisturize and hydrate your skin.
Take a look at some of the below products for all skin types to help lovingly look after your skin with these amazing oils.
