Pricey skin care products are usually infused with natural oils like pomegranate and rosehip. While buying the creams, we discount the fact they have several other synthetic ingredients which aren’t good for the skin on the long run.

Go straight to the source and use the oils in their natural state. Facial oils are the new in-thing in the beauty industry. Not all oils can be used directly on the skin, and have to be diluted before using, like tea tree oil.

Here is a list of natural oils that help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and completely eliminate uneven skin tone and dark spots.

Baobab oil

This is extracted from the seed of the baobab fruit. The tree is native to Africa. Its oil is extracted by cold-pressing the seeds and then bottling it. This oil is rich in collagen-producing Vitamin C. It has almitic, oleic, and linoleic fatty acids which helps treats varied skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and inflammation.

Prolonged usage of this oil can help fade away acne scars and stretch marks. While this oil is not widely available everywhere, it is a great ingredient to get your hands on. It suits young as well as mature skin equally well.  

Jojoba Oil

This oil is derived from a nut that grows in desert climates. This oil is gentle enough to be used a carrier oil for more concentrated oils as well as to be used directly onto your face.

Jojoba oil is an integral part of several people’s skincare routines for its instant moisturising property. It is a humectant, which means it forms a protective barrier on your skin, stopping it from losing moisture. It also contains Vitamin E, helping you fight oxidative stress.

Pomegranate Seed Oil

Pomegranate oil is derived from cold-pressing pomegranate seeds. It is rich in collagen and helps maintain the skin’s elasticity. It’s anti-inflammatory properties act like cortisone to reduce redness on the skin.       

It controls the production of free radicals and prevents photo-aging. Anti-oxidants like ellagic acid and punicalagins prevent pigmentation. Add this in your daily routine to get glowing and healthy skin within 3 weeks of usage.

Rosehip Oil

Rosehip oil is so good for the skin, that even Kate Middleton’s uses it to get her perfect skin. Rosehip seed oil is extracted from the seed present in the rose bush. As it is non-comedogenic, it prevents clogging of pores and is effective in clearing our acne from your skin.

Rosehip oil is great for lightening your skin. It gets rid of scarring, dark circles and even pigmentation over time. Due to its regenerative properties, it accelerates the healing of burns and bruises.

Choose the best facial oil according to your skin concern for maximum benefits.
