What Oils Are Best For Dry Skin?
Until recently, the idea of applying pure oils to your face was rejected by most women (even by those with dry skin). Today, however, facial oils are among the most demanded beauty elixirs on the market. Promising to deliver everything from wrinkle-reduction and firmness to antioxidant-boost and anti-acne benefits, facial oils seem to be the new big thing in the beauty world.
If you are new to facial oils and your primary concern is dry/lacklustre/flaky skin - this post is for you! Let us introduce you to 3 of our favourite organic facial oils that will transform your skin from dry and lifeless to supple and radiant.
If your skin is severely dry and dehydrated and you'd like to restore its lit-from-within glow, argan oil is your best bet!
Argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the Moroccan argan tree and is well-known for its outstanding anti-aging and skin reviving properties. Thanks to the high concentration of vitamin E, essential fatty acids and powerful antioxidant, Argan oil promotes collagen synthesis (improving skin’s elasticity), hydrates in depth and replenishes skin's protective lipid barrier. Be preserving the integrity of the lipid barrier of the skin, argan oil prevents moisture loss and helps the skin look more plump and glowing. Since argan oil is pretty lightweight, it penetrates the skin with ease delivering important nutrients where they are most needed.

Forget about drugstore lotions – coconut oil is your natural all-in-one solution for dry skin. Not only coconut oil hydrates your skin, but it also forms a thin protective layer on the skin surface that prevents water from evaporating, locking the moisture in. Coconut oil melts into skin quickly and easily and has an incredibly smooth finish. Since coconut oil is a non-fragrant oil it is suitable even for those who have sensitive skin that tends to react to products.
Another great characteristic of coconut oil is its high stability. Unlike most natural oils, coconut doesn't go rancid a few months after its first contact with air. If you buy unrefined, organic coconut oil it may last up to 2 years without going rancid.
There is a reason why coconut oil is one of the most popular natural oils nowadays. Give it a try!
Apart from the high vitamin C content, Rosehip oil also has superb moisturizing properties, which make it a great pick for dry skin that has lost its vitality. Vitamin C plays a key role in the synthesis of collagen, brightens the complexion and diminishes spots and blemishes. The essential fatty acids found in rosehip oil replenish the skin, hydrate and protect, to give your complexion an instant glow boost. Last but not least, rosehip oil is believed to have retinol-like activity when applied topically (without the side effects of retinol), which means it's the perfect ally for keeping wrinkles at bay.
