I wake up from time to time to consider my life and what needs fixing. This probably sounds a bit dramatic. I woke up recently bothered about my skin and my receding hairline. You see, I have uneven skin tone, and my hairline prevents me from styling my hair in some very fashionable styles. Apparently no baby hair and edges for me.
I wanted to fix these problems in the most natural way possible. My research into natural oils began and this is what I learnt.
List Of Natural oils
Argan oil sounds pretty exotic, but it is more widespread than you may think. I have seen different brands in supermarkets and beauty stores. It is quite affordable too. The precious oil uses pressed argan oil from the Moroccan Argan tree, which contains high levels of vitamin E and other essential fatty acids which soften and strengthen damaged hair.
The oil is very light; just a few drops are needed for long hair and unlike some serums, hair is not weighed down, and there are no undesirable greasy side effects.
Coconut oil is often referred to as “the healthiest oil on earth.” You may have seen those funny pictures that say you can apply coconut oil on anything, well it’s true. You can use it for your hair, skin and even your husband’s beard. Its essential proteins and capric and lauric acids fight wrinkles, and tone and tighten skin while nourishing healthy hair. Coconut oil is literarily everywhere, you can even make it yourself.
Here’s another use for the excess “Goya oil” in your house. When massaged onto dry skin the silky smooth oil unclogs pores, and sweeps away make-up and impurities, and as it’s an oil based formula your skin won’t feel tight and dry after cleansing. This is the best make up remover in my opinion.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is applied to the skin for infections such as acne, fungal infections of the nail, lice, and athlete’s foot. It is also used topically as a local antiseptic for cuts and abrasions, burns, and insect bites and stings. Tea tree oil is particularly good for dandruff.
The greatest advantage of almond oil for skin care is that it is suitable for all skin types. It is possible to get this made from scratch but when in doubt just buy some at a store.
The benefits of sweet almond oil for skin care are numerous. It helps soothe skin rashes and irritations, and lightens the dark circles under the eye. It also improves complexion.
