Amazing Benefits of Sea Buckthorn in Skincare
There are several carrier oils in the market that can have wonderful benefits in maintaining your skin, keeping it youthful, preventing aging, and giving you a youthful glow. Sea Buckthorn is another oil that is extracted from fruit seeds and used to keep your skin healthy. It contains around 200 nutrients which help your skin retain its glow. Here are the top benefits you could get:
Prevent premature aging
With nutrients including over 60 anti oxidants-carotenoids being the major star performer. It also has protein building amino acids, healthy fats, vitamins B1, B2, K, C, A, E, xanthophylls, phenolics, flavanoids, and folic acid-all essential in skincare. This deep orange oil can effectively prevent lines, wrinkles and sagging skin to help you maintain a youthful look. Sea Buckthorn is especially helpful to older skin because it is one of the best oils for moisturizing and nourishing skin.
Heal tanned skin
Tanned skin could be damaging to your skin in the long-term and may also cause burning sensations. It can also heal inflamed skin. To heal burnt skin, mix a few drops of sea buckthorn oil with aloe Vera and apply to the affected areas.
Good for dry skin
For people with dry, flaky skin, you could apply a few drops of buckthorn oil to prevent cuts and damage, especially during harsh weather conditions. The oil is thick in texture; thus it would help retain moisture in the skin for longer hours and prevent the skin from damage. It can effectively nourish skin and give a glow.
Soothe damaged skin
People with sensitive skin are prone to developing rashes, itchy skin or redness. Sea buckthorn oil can help repair irritated skin and prevent it from getting worse. It can also be used to cure insect bites.
Effective for blemished skin
It can be really annoying to have marks, scars or spots on your skin, especially when a big occasion is coming up. Buckthorn oil can help remove scars, blemishes and spots to give you a clearer complexion.
As you can see, the benefits are numerous. However, do a skin patch test first to determine that you are not allergic to the oil. Also, get to know from your doctor your skin type to ensure that buckthorn oil would be suitable for you.
Mask using Sea Buckthorn
If you love the benefits of masks like I do, try adding a dropper full to any mask you make. This little trick will add tons of benefits. It is like squishing a ton of carrots and smearing it on your face. If you would like to find sea buckthorn, check out Mountain Rose Herbs.
