What Oils are Best for Anti-Aging and Vibrant Skin?
Oils keep your skin, breasts and body healthy. The oils on your skin provide a healing, anti-aging, protective barrier. The immune system on your skin works by breaking down your skin’s natural oils. That process even kills germs, viruses and bacteria to prevent them from entering your body.
Specific oils also prevent wrinkles and aging! Why? Oils are essential for healthy, smooth, young looking skin. You need to replace the oil you wash off when you wash your face, shower or bathe. See, lotions don’t provide the same benefits because they don’t mimic the specific oils naturally produced by your skin.
The following are some of my top favorite oils for skin and overall health:
Jojoba - Most like the oil produced by your skin so it naturally softens and moisturizes. Rich in vitamins, minerals, naturally antibacterial, and an antioxidant to help prevent skin damage, It has been shown effective in reducing superficial facial lines, restoring elasticity, plus easing psoriasis, inflamed skin, and dermatitis.*
Extra Virgin Olive - Rich in chlorophyll, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, proteins, essential fatty acids, and omegas-3-6-9 for vibrant, radiant skin. The Jan 2005 Annuls of Oncology reported that oleic acid (a fatty acid found in olive oil) is believed to suppress a gene responsible for many breast cancers, by up to 46%.*
Castor - Rich in a unique, potent, immune-boosting fatty acid called ricinoleic acid which has been shown effective in preventing the growth of numerous viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and molds. Used as a topical treatment for occasional acne, skin inflammation, and keratoses. Naturally makes skin softer and more pliable.*
Sesame – Ultra-rich in benefits from vitamins, minerals, proteins, as well as linoleic acid, alpha linoleic acid, and lecithin to soothe the nervous system. Sesame is applied to the skin in Ayurvedic medicine for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties for eczema, psoriasis, and arthritis.*
Rosa Rubignosa - Rich in vitamin C and retinol, this is the leading oil for treating wrinkles, stretch marks, sun damage, inflamed skin and for preventing aging. Rosa Rubignosa is used in medical and spa practices for stimulating cell growth, reducing scars, burns, increasing elasticity, and regaining more even skin color and tone.*
Choose Organic or Wild - Many believe that using organic or wild harvested ingredients is better for our environment and better for your vital force. As a mom, I feel so strongly about this that we always select organic or wild ingredients for our home and of course my product line, when available.*
