Oils for skin

Dealing with dry skin, eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, age
  1. Coconut oil
    Best for sensitive skin, eczema, dry hair
  2. Argan oil
    The fatty acids help our skin cells make healthy membranes, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy collagen; best for fine lines, dry skin, and dry hair
  3. Avocado oil
    high in vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, which helps proper cell function and decrease inflammation; because it's such a rich emollient, avocado oil is ideal for those with dry, itchy, or aging skin; best for dry, sensitive, or irritated skin
  4. Flaxseed oil
    Best for irritated, sensitive skin, and conditions such as eczema and dermatitis; anti-inflammatory properties; studies have shown that if taken daily, it can improve skin conditions such as eczema in just three months; mix the seeds in foods, or use the oil as a topical moisturizer
  5. Lavender oil
    may be especially beneficial for those with acne and general skin irritation; helps control sebum production, soothes irritation, and is a natural antiseptic and disinfectant; can also boost the performance of your other skin products, and is thought to help aid in the absorption of active ingredients into the skin
  6. Rose-hip seed oil
    like Mother Nature's Retin-A without the irritating side effects; works to increase cell turnover; use it for a few weeks, you'll notice significant change in any dark spots, scars, or any other skin discoloration; this retinol-like effect, and the resulting increase in collagen and elastin production, means aging skin will benefit; high concentrations of linoleic acid may also help acneic skin
  7. Safflower oil
    contains linoleic acid, or omega-6 fatty acid, which helps your skin make ceramides, a type of lipid that helps the skin hold onto water and prevent dehydration; the best of all the oils for inflamed, dry skin — with the exception of argan oil, but much less expensive
