Oleo’s Top 6 Anti-ageing oils for Beautiful Skin

The beauty industry bombards us with ads for youth potions, scientifically proven formulas and jargon that usually doesn’t mean much at all. So, try not to be fooled by these exaggerated promises and look closer to home; here at Oleo we believe the secret to youthful skin lies in the ingredients nature provides us with! 

In simple terms, ageing skin is a slowing down of cell regeneration. This ultimately results in your skin losing tension and plumpness, causing wrinkles to form and your complexion to change. But, fret not; although we can’t reverse these changes, essential oils can do more than most potions to slow down the effects.  Essential oils encourage the skin cells to regenerate more efficiently, and help the skin to lubricate itself, keeping it supple and less prone to wrinkling.

As I can’t stress enough, skin cell regeneration is the key to youthful skin and essential oils can help this process by working their anti-ageing magic! Check out the top anti-ageing ingredients Olivia uses in the Oleo range. She specifically chooses them for their youthful and rejuvenating qualities!

1. FRANKINCENSE ESSENTIAL OIL

The rejuvenating properties of frankincense make it one of the most important oils for improving skin tone and treating ageing skin and wrinkles, as well as reducing scar tissue.  You can find Frankincense essential oil in our Frankincense Day Cream & Frankincense & Palma Rosa Face Mask!

2. PALMAROSA ESSENTIAL OIL

It has a balancing action on the skin and can help to hydrate dry skin.  Palmarosa stimulates cellular regeneration and will help to reduce wrinkles and improve the appearance of tired or ageing skin. Also Found in our Frankincense & Palmarosa Face Mask.

3. NEROLI ESSENTIAL OIL

The oil has a very low toxicity and its rejuvenating properties make it useful for treating dry, mature skin, wrinkles and broken capillaries.  Neroli is an excellent oil for helping you deal with stress, tiredness and anxiety – all of which can make you look and feel much older than you are.  Found in our Orange Blossom Cleansing Cream and Replenishing Facial Moisturiser.

4. ROSE ESSENTIAL OIL

Rose oil has excellent emollient, softening and hydrating properties which, accompanied by its stimulating and antiseptic qualities, make it ideal for all skin care, especially for mature, dry or sensitive skin.  Rose oil has a tonic and astringent effect on the capillaries and can be used for the treatment of broken capillaries, redness and inflammation of the skin.  Found in our Replenishing Facial Moisturiser.

5. ROSEHIP SEED OIL

This is a big one, but rosehip seed oil has endless benefits to aid your quest towards a youthful complexion, The benefits of this oil boil down  to its amazing collection of ingredients, which have powerful properties to help regenerate and brighten skin.

– It contains natural vitamin A, which is effective in helping to avoid premature ageing as a result of excessive sun exposure.

– It also contains lycopene and beta-carotene, both of which are potent antioxidants and protect against damage from free radicals and skin ageing.

– It is rich in fatty acids including omega 3, 6 and 9.  These are fundamental to ensure healthy skin but the body is unable to produce them.  It can help to prevent fine lines and wrinkles due to its high fatty acid and anti-oxidant content.

–  It is proven to reduce and improve scars due to the complex mixture of ingredients and its ability to regenerate skin cells producing more collagen.

You can try out this wonderful plant oil in our Essential Skin Serum and Replenishing Facial Moisturiser.

6. SEABUCKTHORN OIL

The berries of the seabuckthorn plant are rich in vitamins and minerals. Because of this, the oil is well known for its use on the skin. Aromatherapists have credited it with reducing wrinkles, regenerating skin cells, and for promoting the healing of skin injuries such as burns, sunburns, wounds and eczema. Found in our Essential Skin Serum.
