Anti-wrinkle oils for the beauty of our skin?
We can really wander at will in the world of vegetable oils, appreciate the scent, the texture and above all the relationship with our epidermis.
The vegetable oils with eudermic properties are rich in tocopherols, carotenoids, phytosterols, all antioxidant substances that help to counteract free radicals, to revitalize the skin and nourish it by elasticizing it.
We see the properties and uses of 3 specific vegetable oils for wrinkles .
1. Argan oil, anti-wrinkle from Morocco
It is the fruit of the Argania Spinosa that gives us its precious oil: we think that to produce half a liter it takes about 50 kilos of berries and for this reason it is often called the Golden Oil.
It is rich in Omega 6 fatty acids, flavonoids and tocopherols (vitamin E) ; tocopherol in particular is a powerful liposoluble antioxidant that protects our skin from oxidative stress.
Argan oil has elasticising properties and is able to be conveyed in the deepest layers of our epidermis without leaving excess oiliness. A few drops are enough to tap on the skin, even around the eyes. It can be mixed with the moisturizing face cream during the day and as a nightly anti-age treatment after cleansing.
2. Coconut oil, anti-wrinkle from the tropics
From the coconut a prodigious oil, with a thousand uses, for hair, skin, nails, mucous membranes. In addition to extraordinary antibacterial properties thanks to the presence of lauric acid, coconut oil seems to have become an indispensable solution for the beauty of the skin.
It is rich in Vitamin E, regenerates skin cells, removes those dead, penetrates deeply, nourishes the epidermis, plumps and smoothes fine lines.
Coconut oil is solid like butter, it must be heated and diluted in order to use it in the right doses.
We can create an anti-wrinkle scrub by mixing it with fine salt, or it can become our anti-aging treatment for the night.
It moisturizes, nourishes, disinfects, disinfects the skin of our face and can also be applied to the lips, not only to replenish them but also to prevent cold sores.
3. Avocado oil, an exotic anti-wrinkle
An oil rich in vitamins A, E, C, B, linoleic acid, omega-3, mineral salts, potassium, carotenoids, chlorophyll, avocado oil is a very light oil, easily absorbed, able to hydrate and nourish epithelial cells and slow aging.
In fact, avocado oil is very popular in the treatment of psoriasis; it is particularly suitable for those who love tanning a lot and subject their skin to UV rays, as it deeply nourishes and slows down the effects of photo aging .
It can be used in various ways for cosmetic use: we can apply it to the face as a cleanser to remove make-up, since its light texture allows it to be carried on the skin without irritating the most delicate areas; it can be used as a serum, with a few drops to tap around the eyes, on the forehead, around the lips; we can mix it with a neutral moisturizing cream to apply daily to nourish and quench the skin.
