Finding out your skin type is THE FIRST step you should take when going into skincare. It can be tricky at first, but once you know your skin, then it’s easier to be able to treat it!
Using natural oils on your oily skin may not make sense at first. But trust me, ALL skin types need oils, it's just a matter of finding the best oil that is compatible with your skin type.
Firstly, it should be noted that Jojoba is the closest oil to our own sebum (this is the oil that is naturally produced from our skin). This means that Jojoba Oil is able to signal to the skin to stop producing excess oils, that's why applying Jojoba Oil can help maintain the amount of oil that is released from the skin. Another amazing benefit from Jojoba Oil is that it is extremely lightweight and breathable for your skin, which is why it's the best option for people with oily skin. Also, Jojoba Oil is actually still suitable for all skin types, due to it being so similar to sebum. It’s also suitable for both young and mature skin. Jojoba Oil naturally breaks down and can dissolve any excess sebum so that it can balance your natural oils and control your facial glow!
Dealing with dry skin can be really frustrating at times, sometimes we just want to glow effortlessly! To some people dry skin even comes with irritations like itchiness and flakiness. Using natural oils may actually be more beneficial to your skin than any other skin type!
Almond Oil is, in fact, noritorius for treating dry skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The best thing about Almond Oil is that it’s the perfect oil to use when you think you’re looking dull or tired. It brightens up your dry and makes it more vibrant. That’s why it works so well on dry skin. Another reason why Almond oil is so good for dry skin is because of how thick it is. Almond Oil has quite a thick consistency that penetrates and deeply moisturises your skin! This natural oil is also a gentle exfoliator and it gets rid of the dry and dead skin cells to soften the skin and allows your skin to glow!
On top of that, Almond Oil contains these nutrients; Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Zinc and Omega-3 fatty acids. If you know anything about skincare, then you might know that these 4 nutrients are very important and beneficial for your skin!
If you’re allergic to nuts, you should avoid using Almond Oil.
If you have normal skin then you are one of the chosen ones! It is fairly easy finding products that work for you and you may not have too many skin issues. Nevertheless, I’ve picked a natural oil that is best for normal skin and why you should get one ASAP.
This natural oil is widely used in so many cosmetic and hair products. You’ve probably already used a product that contains argan oil before! One of the reasons many people like Argan Oil is because of its consistency, it's not too thick or too runny. It also comes with a plethora of benefits! One of which is that it's packed with nutrients like omega fatty acids, Vitamin E and linoleic acids. These all contribute to moisturize and soften your skin and so reduce acne! Speaking of Vitamin E, this is an antioxidant that aids in preventing dark marks, skin damage and also fine lines. Overall, there's no reason you can hate Argan Oil, it only exudes positivity!
Having sensitive skin is TOUGH when it comes to skincare, trying one wrong product might be a struggle for your skin for the next week or so! Finding the right product for your sensitive skin can be even tougher! I’ve chosen one natural product that you can consider for your skin and why it may help you.
One of the reasons why Avocado Oil can benefit your sensitive skin is the amount of omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin A,D and E, it contains. These antioxidants and vitamins can help protect the skin from irritation and they are able to heal damaged skin, such as itchy and flaky skin. For sensitive skin, using natural oils that have fatty acids can aid in strengthening the skin barrier. These antioxidants are there to protect and prevent any future skin damages. Avocado oil is also able to hydrate and moisturize the skin, whilst also protecting it from ultraviolet radiation. The anti-inflammatory ingredients in Avocado oil also aim to soothe your skin!
If you are allergic to avocados, you should avoid avocado oil.
Having combination skin is actually really common! Most people are oily around the forehead, nose and chin (T-Zone areas) and are dry in the cheeks. Finding one product that tackles both of those issues may be quite challenging since you don't entirely have dry or oily skin.
As mentioned before, Jojoba Oil has a similar structure as our skin’s sebum. This means that our skin recognises jojoba oil as ‘it’s own’ so it allows jojoba oil to penetrate further into the skin, especially when it comes to combination skin. With combination skin, part of your face (perhaps the T zone area) may be oily, while other parts of your skin are quite dry. This is because your skin is producing excess sebaceous glands in some areas when it should be spread across. Using a product that's very light weight but also similar to the oil our own skin proces can help even out the amount of oil your skin is producing. Some other great things about jojoba oil is that it's the perfect product to use if you are dealing with pimples but also dry patches. This natural oil will target both of these areas even though your entire face isn't oily or dry but both.
