5 Essential Oils That Are Like Nature's Botox

Want firmer, plumper MORE hydrated skin? Then you need to add these essential oils to your routine ASAP!

While age is just a number, there is no denying that aging skin is a natural and unavoidable reminder of getting older. External factors like UV and sun damage, stress, pollution, and genetics can help speed up the process.

But there is a solution to delaying it. Youthful looking skin doesn't have an expiration date. Entering the chat are proven and time-tested Essential Oils, which can be used in a variety of ways in your beauty routine for firmer, plumper and more hydrated skin.

Here are the top 5 essential oils for firmer, plumper, more hydrated skin.

1. Jojoba Oil: Acne Fighter and Deep Moisturizer

People with acne-prone or oily skin don't need to avoid oils, but they do need to be a bit pickier about which oils they choose. You’ve heard the phrase non-comedogenic, which means that a product or ingredient is non-pore clogging. As a non-comedogenic yet hydrating oil, jojoba is one of the most pore-friendly oils out there. Plus, it contains a load of other skin-healthy benefits. Here is jojoba’s impressive beauty resume:

  • Won’t aggravate acne:​ Jojoba oil’s antibacterial nature means it can clear away acne-causing bacteria without stripping the skin. It possesses similar properties to our skin's own sebum and can rebalance our natural oil production.
  • Locks in hydration​: This moisturizer possesses vitamins A, E and D, plus antioxidants and fatty acids. It also can reach deep below the top layer of skin for maximum hydration.
  • Anti-inflammatory​: Jojoba oil has strong anti-inflammatory properties, which is especially helpful for those with uncomfortable bumps, as well as inflammatory conditions like eczema.

2. Turn Up the Radiance With Turmeric Oil

Turmeric essential oil is derived from the same powerful plant as the flavorful spice and holds equally impressive benefits for the skin. Although not as well known as other botanical oils like jojoba, turmeric oil is rich in vitamins, phenols and alkaloids, as well as antioxidant properties that can help guard the skin from age-accelerating free-radical damage. With turmeric oil’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and skin-nourishing compounds working together, you can experience a brighter, more balanced complexion.

3. Rosehip Seed Oil Renews and Protects

Rosehip seed oil is extracted from small bright-red berry-like seed pods of two types of wild roses. The oil boasts a vibrant red-orange color and a lot of skin-transforming qualities:

  • Improves the skin barrier​: Rosehip seed oil contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that helps maintain the strength of the skin's protective barrier, which is responsible for holding on to moisture, protecting the skin from damage and keeping impurities out.
  • Brightens tone​: The oil contains brightening antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin A, which are known to help your skin radiate a healthy glow.
  • Supports collagen:​ Rosehip seed oil’s vitamin C content can aid in the process of collagen synthesis, as well as maintain the collagen you already have.
  • Protects skin from free radical damage​: Free radicals (damage-causing particles produced by things like smoke and pesticides) and oxidative stress are two of the main culprits behind premature aging. Rosehip seed oil contains the antioxidants that protect against these threats and keep your skin looking healthy.

4. Best All Around: Geranium Oil

Used by ancient Egyptians for promoting lovely skin, geranium oil is the perfect beauty balm for a wide range of skin types, but especially for combination complexions or those with dull, inflamed and dry skin. Since it’s considered antibacterial, non-irritating and generally non-sensitizing, geranium oil works on all skin types to calm irritation and inflammation, while quenching skin cells with non-pore clogging hydration. It also has a wide range of other benefits like helping to regulate oil production, repair sun damage, reduce acne breakouts, increase elasticity and bring skin back into balance (if it’s too dry or too oily).

It’s a superb “all around” oil for combination skin and for those who are starting to see visible signs of aging.

5. Raspberry Seed Oil Quenches Skin With Next-Level Nutrients

Cold-pressed raspberry seeds produce an oil that’s abundant in skin-quenching vitamins and nutrients. They include vitamins A, C and E, as well as essential fatty acids like linoleic, alpha-linolenic and oleic acids. These essential fatty acids are the foundation of healthy cells. By helping to maintain and preserve the skin's natural oil barrier, fatty acids can keep skin looking hydrated, full and more youthful. Applying plant oils that contain high amounts of essential fatty acids — like raspberry seed oil — is a good way to help the skin’s moisture barrier function properly and prevent precious water loss as you age.
