The Best Essential Oils for Skin Care.
You can use essential oils for a variety of issues like helping reduce anxiety, getting more sleep, controlling hunger to name a few.
But did you know that you can also use essential oils for skincare?
The biggest tip to do this is to make sure you dilute your oils with a carrier oil.
You don’t want more than 5% essential oils in your solution, as anything stronger may cause more problems.
Also, when you start using essential oils for your skincare issues, start slow.
Focus on one condition at a time before moving on to the next issue.
That way you can tell which essential oil worked best for you, while avoiding additional problems caused by using too many essential oils at once.
So let’s look at what essential oils can do for your Skin Care routine.
SHRINK YOUR PORES.
If you have large or clogged pores, you’ll want to do something to shrink them to avoid clogging them. Tea Tree oil can help deal with large pores. After diluting you’ll want to massage it into your face for about five minutes. Rinse well and pat dry.
Tighten Your Skin.
Everyone gets loose skin. It’s just a normal part of aging. But you can slow it down with frankincense or lavender essential oil.
Slow Down Aging.
Carrot seed oil can help slow aging and keep your skin healthy and brighter. Carrot seed oil is also great for reversing skin damage caused by the sun.
Balance Oily Skin.
If you have oily skin, you probably also have blemishes. First, understand that having oily skin is not really a bad thing. Your skin will age more slowly. The trick is to keep your pores clean. Try using tea tree oil, ylang-ylang, and if you have sensitive skin, chamomile essential oil.
Soothe Dry Skin.
Dry skin can be prone to being itchy and rashy. If you want to soothe dry skin, try blends with frankincense, sandalwood, sage, and rose in jojoba oil.
Anything that has a smell like mint, peppermint, eucalyptus, and so forth is going to be good for fighting acne, as are citrus oils.
If your skin scars easily or has old scars from acne, you may want to try carrot seed oil, citrus oils, and add vitamin E oil to whatever you use.
If you have eczema, you know that it’s something you are always fighting, and you can’t always identify what happened to cause a flare. Depending on the cause of your problem, you may want to try tea tree, lavender, frankincense, or chamomile essential oils.
Hopefully, this helps you get started in your journey to using essential oils for skincare. Remember, when you start using essential oils, start slow. Address one condition at a time before moving on to the next. That way you will avoid additional problems knowing which essential oil worked best for you while avoiding unnecessary oils.
