Essential Oils & Aging

If you're looking for a more natural way to combat signs of premature aging, essential oils may be for you!

Using essential oils that have antioxidant properties may help prevent the breakdown of and boost collagen, giving your skin that youthful glow.

Essential oils may also help with: 

  • evening your skin tone
  • reducing inflammation
  • protecting your skin from environmental aggressors
  • reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • improving the overall health of your skin

 

Different essential oils can target and help treat different skin concerns:

  • Frankincense

Frankincense helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun spots.

Using it may also improve skin cell growth. As we age, the process of exfoliation slows down, making our skin look tired or dull, but helping to speed up the process can bring new life to your skin.

 

  • Lavender

Lavender works to kill bacteria which can help prevent breakouts and reduce inflammation. It also works to even your skin tone and protect your skin from environmental aggressors.

     

    • Clary Sage

    Clary Sage works well for oily and dry skin types to soothe and calm the skin and reduce inflammation. It also works to balance your skin's natural oil production, helping to keep your skin moisturized.

       

      • Pomegranate

      Pomegranate assists in fighting free radicals and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

      Because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it also helps to reduce redness and inflammation and help protect your skin from damage.

         

        • Lemon

        High in Vitamin C, lemon oil can help improve dull, dry skin by brightening it. It also works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the overall texture and complexion of your skin.

           

          • Rosehip

          Rosehip oil contains many fatty acids to help your skin retain moisture, allowing for soft, supple skin.

          It's also high in Vitamin A and Vitamin C to help reduce hyperpigmentation and brighten your skin.

           

          Essential oils may aggravate your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin. It's important to dilute essential oils before using them on your skin to avoid adverse reactions.
