Essential Oils can be a great way to help your skin look, and feel better as well! If you are looking for the best essential oils for aging skin, I'm happy to share a few of my favorites with you!
When's the last time that you looked in the mirror and didn't even feel like you recognized the person staring back at you? More than likely, as you age you may feel that way quite frequently.
Trust that you aren't alone in feeling like you want to pause and slow down time. Every single one of us feels that way at one point in time or another!
The good news? There are some amazing essential oil options out there that can help take your aging skill and give it a bit more glow.
Anti-aging skin care products are big business, and there are so many different products on store shelves to choose from today. The problem? Many of those products contain a cocktail of chemical ingredients, which certainly isn’t appealing to anyone who likes to keep their personal care routine as natural as possible.
Have you ever stopped to read what is exactly on the label that you are buying? If you can't pronounce or don't know what the word is, it's a good rule of thumb that it's something that you probably shouldn't be using on your body.
The good news: You can make your own Anti-aging wrinkle creams and serums and save a lot of money.
Why spend money on something that you can do yourself?
There are many carrier oils that have great anti-aging and restorative properties. One of my favorites is Rosehip Seed Oil. These carrier oils provide the base for your anti-aging skin care recipes. But to really up the ante for effective anti-aging serums and creams, you will need some essential oils.
If you are looking for a specific way to hydrate and nourish your face, face serum is a great way to help your aging skin.
