Natural oils are a storehouse of useful substances for the beauty and health of the skin. What are they and how to choose the best one for you?

Experts distinguish between three categories of oils:

  • mineral (a product of the result of oil refining),
  • essential (aromatic oily substances of plants),
  • natural vegetable oils.

The most beneficial for skin health are vegetable oils, which is why they are used in the production of cosmetics. However, essential oils are also involved in the technological process — they add fragrance to cosmetics and perform other functions.

The vegetable oil that we use daily in nutrition is significantly different from cosmetic, although both are essentially natural. The difference is that cosmetic oil goes through a long purification process — some substances, natural waxes and impurities that interfere with bleaching and deodorization are filtered out of its composition.

What can be in the composition of the oil?

The composition of each cosmetic product is unique. But all oils contain vitamins, fatty acids, trace elements. Manufacturers, in order to create the most effective cosmetic skin care product, resort to a combination of several valuable oils. After all, cosmetic oil is a combination of vegetable and essential oils. A well-chosen formula of mixing ingredients helps to create the best and most beneficial product for the skin.

The most effective products are obtained by mixing several different oils — from nuts, seeds, fruits, roots.

Oil VS cream: which is better?

Both products are good in their own way and perfectly cope with their main tasks. But oil, nevertheless, has more advantages. The right oil is suitable for all skin types. It is also useful for hair, as it strengthens the scalp, improves the appearance of the strands, nourishes them with vitamins and fatty acids.

Many ingredients of oils penetrate deep into the skin, which means they work more effectively for the benefit of youth and health.

Therefore, some experts believe that oil has no equal in nourishing and moisturizing the skin — it is it that quickly, efficiently and without loss delivers vitamins, lipids and fatty acids to skin cells. And at the same time, cosmetic oil is more economical than cream: after all, a small amount is enough for application and application.

Oil plays a special role in the moisturizing process. It prevents the loss of moisture by the skin, locking it «from the inside». You only need to observe the drinking regimen, the oil will do the rest.

By the way!

I learned about the benefits of oil for sensitive skin more than ten years ago Letitia Casta and stopped using creams. Now her main cosmetic product is organic prickly pear seed oil, a cactus growing on the Mediterranean coast. She orders this oil for friends in Corsica.

How to apply oil correctly

Another advantage of the oil is that you can use it in combination with a cream. Only first you need to apply oil to the skin, which will play the role of serum. And the cream applied next will help remove excess fat and “preserve” all the beneficial elements of the oil in the skin.

No need to explain that oil and cream should be applied to the body after taking a shower. The skin should not be thoroughly wiped with a towel, it is enough to get wet with it, or ideally if you immediately start the procedure after a shower.

Warm a small amount of oil in the palms of your hands and apply with light movements to the selected area. Move from the tips of your fingers and toes up. Treat the chest and abdomen area clockwise, massaging lightly. Oil does not need to be used a lot, it should not drip.

Dry oil — what is it and how to use it?

Cosmetic product with no stickiness and oiliness is called «dry» oil. Such a product provides the skin with a matte finish and guarantees shine to the hair. At the same time, the composition contains an extensive palette of filtered and light phyto-oils. Dry oils have more versatility — they can be applied even to wet skin.
