Oils For Skin

My quest for finding a natural way out to cure my acne and other skin troubles brought me to the world of natural oils. Now you must be wondering how can an oil treat acne, which is something correlated to oily skin. Reasons and causes for acne presumed by many are mostly misconceived notions. Over the years I have received all sorts of suggestions like avoid oily/fatty foods to give up your love for makeup!! For me makeup is an art which I would like to explore. Enhancing your best features, trying different shades for eyes and lips , highlighting , contouring and the list goes on.. It is altogether a different world for someone who loves it.


So, the nerd in me would like to present to you some facts not myths:

No, oily food doesn’t cause you acne. In fact your dehydrated skin cells produce sebum to compensate for lack of moisture in your skin. This sebum produced is often in excess making your skin oily. Now you must be wondering what about people who have dry skin. People with dry skin have very low sebum production that causes loss of moisture when they get exposed to mild dry, cold air.

Whether you have oily or Dry or Combination skin the most important factor is skin has to be well hydrated. Moreover dehydrated skin is responsible for premature aging of skin. Linoleic acid content in the epidermal layers of skin is responsible for hydration of skin.It is an omega 6-fatty acid. It’s deficiency is correlated to the following: overactive sebaceous glands producing excessive sebum , impaired epidermal barrier allowing inflammatory substances that clog pores thereby causing acne. To put in simple words it’s deficiency has to be corrected to get an even skin tone and flawless skin which is every girl’s dream.

IF you check every available moisturizer in market the ingredients list consists of synthetic substitutes of naturally available emollients like lauric acid, myristic acid, Palmitic acid, Oleic acid. All these benefits can be reaped by using natural vegetable oils rather than going for products that have synthetic substitutes. Moreover the main moisturizing ingredient added in marketed products is mineral oil, Glycerin, or Silicone substitutes (dimethicone or cyclopentasilioxane). Usage of such Products on long term basis will be anything but beneficial to the skin.

Olay moisturizing cream :mineral oil and Cyclopentasilioxane (silicone)

Garnier Essential care daily moisturizer: Cyclopentasilioxane

Garnier Moisture rescue cream for dry skin :  Glycerine, Dimethicone

Lakme Peach Plum Moisturizer :  Mineral oil

If you are looking for skin care product not a makeup cosmetic then the moment you read mineral oil in ingredients’ list i suggest you  keep the product back in the counter.

I didn’t come across any Indian marketed moisturizer that has incorporated the goodness of linoleic acid. The best natural way to get the benefits of linoleic acid is using vegetable oils. These oils used for skin are often referred to as carrier oils. Depending on the composition of oils its usefulness varies depending on the skin types and the need. Oils higher in linoleic acid that are good for the skin : Rosehip oil , Grapeseed oil . These two oils can be used irrespective of the skin type.

Ladies instead of using lotions and moisturizers i suggest you to try these natural oils.Now that it is winter season I believe it is best time to experiment the oils best suited for your skin. You can start with jojoba oil.
