Oils are all the rage right now for your skin and hair. Oils add much needed hydration and nutrients to your body so that you can have rich, clean and youthful hair and soft, supple skin. With so many beauty oils on the market, it can be a bit overwhelming trying to figure out which one might be best for you.
1. TRY OLIVE AND AVOCADO OIL FOR ROUGH PATCHES
Don’t you just hate those dry, rough patches that crop up on your elbows, knees and other spots on your body? Rubbing them with a blend of avocado and olive oil can really help. The fats that both oils contain are super hydrating so when they soak into your rough patches, they leave the skin soft and smooth. You’ll have to use it on regular basis though.
3. THICK, CURLY HAIR NEEDS COCONUT AND SOYBEAN OIL
Look for a blend of soybean and coconut oil if you have a ton of curls on your head. Why? Because the mixture will penetrate and deep condition your strands, helping them lookhydrated, smooth and lush. The oils will also help fight frizz by keeping things under control.
4. MACADAMIA AND ARGAN OIL IS THE PERFECT BLEND FOR FINE HAIR
Women with fine hair, myself included, usually wish for more volume instead of the flatness that thin strands usually offer. By applying a mixture of macadamia and argan oil to your hair, you can get the look you want. Both are lightweight and won’t weigh your hair down so you can get volume and hydration all rolled into one.
5. DO YOU HAVE OILY SKIN? USE JOJOBA AND NEEM OIL
I suffer from shine on my face from time to time and it turns out that a blend of jojoba and neem oil can help. It’s lightweight so it won’t produce breakouts, but it does help reduce the production of sebum on the surface of your skin. The blend is also soothing and will help prevent future breakouts.
6. SUN DAMAGED SKIN RESPONDS WELL TO A BLEND OF OILS
Pomegranate seed oil mixed with macadamia and jojoba seed oil is perfect for reversing the effects of sun damage. Apply the mixture to your skin and you fill it with antioxidants that help repair damage and fight off future sun damage. Of course, this oil won’t replace sunscreen so make sure you’re practicing good sun safety when you’re outdoors.
