The world’s pollution levels have reached critical levels, so much dust in the air, plastic in the oceans, dangerous compounds in the water, soil and air. The last thing you want to do is to take care of your body using even more chemicals. That’s a recipe for disaster, unhealthy hair and skin, bad looks and even depression. I will show you some natural remedies for skin and hair care, natural oils especially the Moringa Oil which is a blessing for your skin.
Natural Moringa Oil : The ingredient, derived from a tree indigenous to India, is popping up in every corner of the natural beauty industry, with companies putting it in creams, serums, shampoos, conditioners, and even makeup. Moringa oil is an essential oil culled from Moringa oleifera, which is a vegetable tree grown in Africa, Central and South America, the Indian subcontinent, and Southeast Asia. The tree itself is somewhat miraculous, with one modern researcher calling it “one of the most useful trees in the world” because not only is it drought resistant and can yield cooking and lighting oil, but its seeds can also help purify water.
Benefits of Moringa Oil : It rejuvenates dull, tired, and aging skin. Antioxidants and nutrients help fight free-radical damage that can cause skin tissue damage and lead to the formation of wrinkles. Moringa oil helps improve the appearance of wrinkles and prevents sagging of facial muscles. It softens dry skin and maintains moisture in the skin. It is good for conditioning dry, chapped lips. It’s beneficial to treat rough, dry skin conditions like dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis.
Other natural oils for skin care includes coconut oil, that is easily absorbed into the skin and is known to have many health benefits, including vitamins E and K, as well as its antifungal and antibacterial properties. Olive oil doesn’t typically trigger allergic reactions, Katta says, but for the best results, be sure to opt for the extra-virgin variety. Olive oil contains vitamins A, D, E, and K, and some research, such as a study published in October 2016 in the journal Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology, offers scientific evidence of its potential as a moisturizer.
Sunflower seed oil is widely available, high in vitamin E, and absorbs easily into the skin, making it an excellent choice as a natural moisturizer. One study, published in January-February 2013 in the journal Pediatrics Dermatology, found that in infants sunflower oil better protected the skin’s barrier and didn’t cause or aggravate atopic dermatitis (a form of eczema), as compared with olive oil.
Shea butter is a tallow-like substance that is commonly found in a solid form, but it melts at body temperature, and is sometimes used as a moisturizer and hair product, says Katta, adding she hasn’t seen her patients have allergic reactions to it. Unrefined, organic shea butter can also be combined with olive oil or coconut oil to create a smoother texture for application.
And lets finish with natural oils for hair care , hair is very important as every woman knows. Argan oil, also known as Moroccan oil, is derived from nuts produced from argan trees. Rich in fatty acids, antioxidants and Vitamin E, argan oil not only makes your hair look wonderful, but also has many protective qualities. It is sometimes referred to as “liquid gold” due to its rich golden color.
Jojoba oil, pronounced ho-ho-ba, is a product of the jojoba plant. Jojoba oil is ideal for use in the hair, since it shares many characteristics with sebum, the oil our scalps naturally produce. It won’t interfere with the scalp’s natural balance. Since it deeply penetrates the hair shaft and follicle, working from the inside out, jojoba oil is a great moisturizer. Jojoba oil also has antibacterial qualities.
Almond oil comes from the kernels inside almonds. Sweet almond oil comes from edible almonds that have been specifically grown to have a sweet taste. Not only great for cooking, sweet almond oil is also wonderful for your hair. It contains Vitamin E, fatty acids, proteins and antioxidants, along with magnesium, which reduces hair breakage and helps it grow. People with mineral deficiencies are prone to slow hair growth and hair loss, so adding some almond oil into your diet can also greatly help with these issues.
