Benefits of adding essential oils to your skincare routine vary from one oil to another. Below are 6 of the best essential oils that should be added to your skincare routine:
Carrot seed oil
Carrot seed oil is an amber-coloured oil that is extracted from carrot seeds. It’s great for dry, sun-damaged, mature, or wrinkled skin. It's a very important oil to add to your skincare routine during the winter season because the skin is prone to get dry and cracked during this time of the year. If your skin appears dull and tired, then applying a product with carrot seed oil will help get your glow back. Carrot seed oil is good for both dry and oily skin types.
Lavender oil can be used for both dry/ageing skin and oily/sensitive skin. This versatile oil will help calm and relax you. It also has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial qualities. Most dermatologists and aromatherapists refer to the lavender oil as one of the most beneficial oils to treat acne, since the oil stops bacteria that causes the infection. As well as being great for all skin types, it’s also great to mix with almost any other essential oil.
Lemongrass oil is a great choice to increase your skin’s glowing appearance. Reasons being that it detoxifies and regenerates the skin. This native Indian and Sri Lankan oil will help minimize bacterial or microbial growth on your skin. It can be used as a fungicidal, astringent, and a way to minimize pores.
Tea tree oil AKA Melaleuca oil
Tea tree oil is great for oily and sensitive skin. For those that suffer from acne, this oil is known to be as effective as benzoyl peroxide but without the harsh side effects. Like lavender oil, it has anti-fungal and antibacterial qualities. Use this oil to help repair your skin naturally, as it can treat minor cuts, scrapes, and burns, as well as gently soothe and cleanse the skin.
This oil only comes from Tahiti, and it can be traced back hundreds of years ago when indigenous Polynesians in New Zealand used it for religious, medicinal, and beauty purposes. The oil comes from the Tahitian Monoi plant blooms, which are soaked in oil extracted from young coconuts. This oil will help your skin glow, as it provides long-lasting moisturizing properties, as well as purifies and smoothens skin. It can also be used to protect skin from sun and weather elements.
