There’s no denying that over the years, our skin begins to show the wear and tear of time. Unhealthy habits also inevitably catch up with us in the form of fine lines or deep wrinkles. Most of us turn to trusted skincare treatments to combat the signs of aging. Yet, as much as we love buying top-of-the-line products we see in flashy commercials, the solution to aging skin is much closer – and cheaper – than you might think. Studies show that essential oils and moisturizers help immensely with pesky wrinkles, and you won’t need to break the bank to try them. Here are some of the most effective essential oils and moisturizers (with proof to back them up):
When life gives you lemons, use them to fight against wrinkles! That’s right. One of our favorite citrus fruits is not only great in drinks but great for your skin. Filled with Vitamin C, lemon oil can help reduce wrinkles caused by oxidation, treat acne scars, and add a little extra glow. However, be sure to avoid sun exposure following application. Apply before going to sleep and wake up gorgeous!
Known for its beautiful natural fragrance, sandalwood oil has been used to treat problematic skin since ancient times. It can help reduce wrinkles, dark spots, and more, given its anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, if you suffer from dry skin, sandalwood oil is just the thing for much-needed hydration.
Clary Sage Oil
Derived from an herb native to southern Europe, clary sage has rich antioxidants and antimicrobial properties (that means it’s amazing at cleaning your skin!) Suitable for any skin type, this oil can do everything from balancing your natural oil levels to preventing breakouts.
To all our pomegranate lovers out there, we have great news. Given its generous levels of folic acid, pomegranate oil is marvelous as a moisturizer and combats wrinkles with ease. Plus, its anti-inflammatory properties help boost blood flow, making puffy skin a thing of the past!
Last but certainly not least is yet another fruit-based antidote for aging skin. Regardless of how you enjoy them, avocados contain wonderful ingredients for your skin and body. Various studies have looked into the potential benefits of this fruit, and the results couldn’t be better. Not only can avocados boost collagen production when used topically as an oil, but simply eating them can increase skin elasticity in women! So go ahead and enjoy that avocado toast. Your skin will thank you! Avocado oil is also one of the key ingredients in some of our skincare products at Re:nu 180 Medspa; read on to find out more.
