Marula oil for glowing skin
There are a number of different oils that can help to moisturise, smooth and generally brighten your skin, but one option that shows some of the best results is marula oil. This gorgeous product can help to keep skin looking clear, smooth and youthful while giving you a beautiful glow everyday.
Marula oil is often referred to as Africa's miracle oil and has been used for hundreds of years by women throughout the continent. It is taken from the fruit kernels of Kenya's marula tree and has a number of uses, including preserving food and healing the skin.
When it comes to using it on the skin, marula oil really does do everything it says on the bottle. It is an incredibly lightweight oil that penetrates through the skin's layers to provide deep and effective moisturisation without laying thickly on the skin or making it greasy.
The oil has a high concentration of antioxidants, which are absorbed into the skin and help to repair it on a cellular level, meaning it is better to create new, healthy cells. This keeps skin looking fresh and moisturised, while also helping to combat ageing.
It also helps to thicken your skin and maintain its elasticity, meaning that it won't sag - one of the signs of ageing skin. This is because marula oil contains a high dose of vitamin C, as well as monounsaturated fatty acids. Applying the oil on a regular basis helps to keep skin smooth and firm, avoiding wrinkles and giving you a lasting youthful appearance.
You can use the oil on your face and on the rest of your body for great results. It is perfect for areas that tend to get incredibly dry - such as the knees, elbows and heels - as it locks in moisture, smoothes and helps to get rid of flaky, white patches. It also helps to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, so is a great product to include in your skincare routine during and after pregnancy.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
