Now newly popular, essential oils have been a time-tested, age old source for healthy skin for centuries. Choose amongst a variety of rich, pure organic elixirs to help battle acne, slow down fine lines and wrinkles, reduce redness, nourish, and rebalance skin. Using an essential oil also provides a delicious dose of aromatherapy too, free of any artificial ingredients that can further irritate the skin.
A few of the many essential oils you can try include argan oil, rosemary, tea tree oil, lavender, olive oil, ylang ylang, and neem.
The key to maximizing the benefits of the oil you choose is application. Instead of adding another layer to skin, consider swap out your moisturizer for a face oi for a whilel. Ensure the product is free of any additives, as the more refined your oils is, the better it will be for skin. After washing your face thoroughly, add a few drops of the oil to your hands and massage into your face and neck. You'll soon notice how quickly it's absorbed into skin, with no greasy residue left over.
