While coconut oil may be the most popular multipurpose beauty oil to date, these five are just as nourishing and good for your skin, hair and nails.
Deep Rosehip Facial Oil Serum, $15.99
Rosehip oil is great for any skin type. It's packed with fatty acids, such as omega-3-6-9, that diminish fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars. Gentle and non-greasy, this oil gets absorbed into the skin quickly. Don't believe us? Miranda Kerr, a former Victoria's Secret Angel, swears it gives her glowing skin. Give it a shot by applying the oil to damp skin immediately after cleansing and you'll be glowing too!
Grape Seed Oil
Arcona Wine Oil, $58
Who doesn't like youthful, glowing skin? Grape seed oil sure does, because it's packed with antioxidants that reduce the appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks, age spots and saggy skin. The linoleic acid found in grape seed oil also helps fight inflammation and acne. Sound good? Give it a try by applying 2-3 drops to your face and neck in the morning or night.
La Tourangelle Avocado Oil, $9.45
Even the driest skin doesn't stand a chance against this oil. Thanks to the high amount of oleic acid, a fatty acid found in heavier, slow drying oils, avocado oil is perfect for soothing dry, flaky, itchy skin. It is also rich in nutrients such as vitamins D and E, magnesium, potassium, and linoleic acid. Use it as an eye cream by dabbing a little under each eye before bed, or put some oil onto the ends of damp hair and let it air dry to treat splits.
If you've used essential oils, chances are they were diluted with jojoba oil. This carrier oil is gentle on the skin and mixes well with other oils. Jojoba oil is the closest oil in nature to our skin's natural sebum, which means it's the easiest oil for our bodies to absorb. This ability enables it to moisturize both skin and hair, treat aging, acne, and infections, and fight damaging effects of free radicals and bacteria. Impressed? To use, simply rub a few drops onto your face or body to hydrate and smoothen the skin, or add some to damp hair to tame frizzy, dry hair.
Organic Argan Hair Oil, $18.99
Considering argan oil is rich with vitamin A, vitamin E, anti-oxidants, linoleic acid, and Omega-6 fatty acids, it's super popular. Just a drop of argan oil efficiently protects from free radicals and environmental damage. Use this argan hair oil as a daily or weekly leave-in conditioner. Just remember argan oil is easy to over apply, so less is more!
