Essential oils have been used for centuries to enhance beauty, health and wellbeing. Derived from the essence of flowers, leaves, stems and roots of plants, these potent plant extracts offer a natural way to care for your skin's needs.
When chosen and used safely and correctly, essential oils can help address many common skincare concerns. Keep reading to discover how these natural oils can be incorporated into your regimen for clear, glowing skin.
Sebum is the natural oil produced by the sebaceous glands in our skin. It helps moisturise, protect and waterproof the skin and hair. Those with oily or acne-prone skin tend to overproduce sebum, especially during puberty. As we age, sebum production declines leading to dry, dehydrated skin. Hormones, medications, diet and skincare can impact sebum levels. Understanding your sebum levels is key for choosing the right essential oils.
From acne to wrinkles, here are some of the best essential oils to address common skin concerns:
Dilute 2-3 drops in a carrier oil or unscented lotion and apply to problem areas. Can also make DIY toner. Use caution as oils may increase sun sensitivity.
Mix 2-4 drops per teaspoon of carrier oil and massage into skin. Oils seal in moisture and provide relief from itching, cracking.
Use no more than 2% concentration of soothing, gentle oils diluted in carrier oils. Do patch test before use.
Use light, upward strokes to apply diluted oils to face, neck, décolletage 1-2 times daily. Results improve over time.
Massage 2-3 diluted drops into scarred areas twice daily. Consistency is key for seeing results. Avoid sun exposure.
When used properly, essential oils can be a safe, natural way to achieve healthy, radiant skin. Be sure to dilute oils, do patch tests, and monitor for any reactions. Consult your dermatologist to create a customised skincare regimen with essential oils.
Do a patch test first. If no reaction after 24-48 hours, the oil should suit your skin. Start with low concentrations.
Jojoba, coconut, olive, almond and avocado work well. Match carrier to your skin type.
Use oils sparingly, 1-2 times daily max. Take regular breaks. Some increase sun sensitivity.
Consult a paediatrician first. Oils like wintergreen, eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint can be toxic for kids. Use gentle oils like lavender in very low amounts.
Apply oils after water-based products but before moisturizer. This seals in hydration while preventing evaporation.
