If you find yourself constantly applying moisturizer to your dry hands and using deep conditioning hair treatments more often to treat your dry hair, you may be using the wrong products to try and correct the problem. Classic moisturizers and hair treatments often sit on top of skin and hair and do little to hydrate the underlying layers where the dryness starts. Plants oil have a great advantage over classic moisturizers and do a much better job at hydration because their composition is much like that of our own natural body oils. Reach for a plant oil ( jojoba, grape seed, sunflower or argan) and give your hair and skin an extra boost of hydration.
We’re taught to cleanse the oil off of our face from an early age, so the idea of putting oil on our face is somewhat scary. Plant oils instantly soak into facial skin (even the delicate skin around the eyes and mouth) to hydrate and form a protective layer against the outside elements without leaving a greasy residue. A lightweight plant oil, like grape seed oil, also promotes healing of acne and other skin irritation because they are rich in antioxidants like vitamin E and C. Apply plant oils under sunscreen and makeup for best hydrastinine results.
Make-up contains oil and water or water-based cleansers can do little to remove the products we put on our faces. But the oil in make-up easily migrates to the plant oils and almost leaps off the skin and that includes mascara. Light-weight plants oil remove all traces of makeup and leave behind, soft, supple, clean, hydrated skin.
Skip the heavy cream body moisturizers and apply a thin layer of your favorite plant oil after bathing. When plant oils are applied to still-damp skin, the oil soaks in deeply to leave skin soft, nourished and hydrated. Plant oils are concentrated, so only a little is needed.
To hydrate hair while repairing damage and controlling frizz, a natural plant oil can’t be beat. Use a pure plant oils ( not blended with dimethicone silicone) like jojoba, argan, almond or coconut to deeply penetrate each hair shaft and leave hair soft, shiny and healthy.
