My love for facial oils has been since my childhood. My mom used Coconut oil for everything from cooking to hair, scars, burns, face you name it and we used it as a staple oil and this combined with Castor oil and Almond oil. I had no clue of any other oils and these 3 oils were everything for me. Lately I have been concentrating a lot on skincare than makeup. And adding more anti-aging products, treating my hormonal acne all this has lead me to learn lot more about oils and face packs and masks. I would love to share what I have discovered in the past year.
There are many oils in my rotation, sometimes I love to blend and use them and at times its just one kind of oil used for 2 weeks or more to see its effect. So I will continue to write more about the oils that I have tried but in this post I will share my thoughts on these 3 oils.
I buy oils that are organic, cold pressed, 100% natural and free of parabens. This post is not sponsored, I love to get these pure organic oils for a fraction of price than paying a hefty price tag in Sephora, so all these oils are from the same company Ko & Humble.
Maracuja oil: Maracuja oil has been known to replenish, rebuild and brighten skin. It has nutrient-rich essential fatty acids that helps to repair & rejuvenate skin for a firmer complexion. It is also rich in moisture which helps aids to replenish & hydrate skin. This is also excellent if you have oily skin or acne prone skin. I have had severe breakouts in the past few months due to hormonal imbalance and this oil is miracle in a bottle. I stopped all other oils and religiously used this in morning and night and even few drops in my foundation/moisturizer and my skin changed drastically ( Apart from using Maracuja oil I did other DIY’s in terms of masks and changed my diet as well)
Sea Buckthorn Oil : This is perfect for people with sensitive skin, and dealing with acne my face has become more sensitive than before. This oil is helping to sooth the rash and flaky skin much better. With a ton of antioxidants in the form of carotenoids and vitamins A, C, and E, it’ll fight free radicals to keep your face on point as your skin ages. Rich in anti-inflammatory omega fatty acids, sea buckthorn can be helpful for inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, and even acne. Packed with antioxidants, carotenoids, and phytosterols, seabuckthorn is incredibly regenerative. It is rich in vitamins, lipids, fatty acids, and palmitoleic acids, all of which work together to increase connectivity between the skin’s delicate tissues. Seabuckthorn also offers photo-protective properties that make it a natural sunscreen and anti-inflammatory agent.
Marula Oil is fast absorbing, light, and has a non-greasy texture. Marula oil is perfect for Mature or aging skin. It is rich in essential fatty acids Omega 9 – oleic and Omega 6 – linoleic that deeply hydrate and reduce redness while nourishing, healing, moisturizing and improving skin elasticity. With regular use, Marula Oil delivers advanced protection against photo-aging – neutralizing free radicals, helps build healthy collagen, and provides antioxidant protection. More antioxidant protection means younger looking skin and better defense against premature skin aging. The Vitamin E present in this oil helps promote the production of collagen and elastin to boost skin firmness, density and volume. Antioxidants help protect and repair free radical damage from pollution and sun exposure. I have been using marula oil in my night time routine for premature skin aging.
