Plant oils have recently been getting a lot of media attention for their unrivaled benefits for the skin. Whatever your skin condition might be, you can be rest assured that there is a plant oil out there to help. We take a look at some common skin complaints and how we can best treat them.
1.Rosacea and Rosehip
Rosacea is a long-term skin condition, affecting the face with flushing, spots, visible capillaries, burning, and sometimes the redness cam become permanent. However, all is not lost; there is plant oil that can successfully treat this irksome issue. All you need to do is warm a little rosehip oil in your hands and then press it into the problem areas. Additionally, ensure that you buy only unfragranced skincare products to keep irritation at a minimum.
2.Clear Spots With Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a great product to use in the defence against spots – even liver spots. This oil will also create softer and suppler skin, and aids in the fight against ageing.
3.Dry/Dehydrated Skin = Avocado Oil
Dehydrated or dry skin is a common skin problem. Whether your dry skin is caused by seasonal factors or a complaint that affects you all year round, coconut oil can help. Coconut oil is denser, and therefore will seep into the top layers of your skin. This oil contains antioxidant and polyphenol properties which will plump up your skin, encourage the skin’s own oil production, and keep those pesky wrinkles at bay.
4.Treat Inflamed Skin With Calendula Oil
If you suffer from inflamed or sore skin, you need to look for Calendula oil. Derived from the marigold, it offers a vast variety of health benefits and is a great anti-inflammatory. Some of the benefits are: aiding acne, eczema, inflamed skin, wounds, scars, sores, and ulcers.
