We love a good face and body oil, especially when it can be purchased at the grocery store. Boutique, wildcrafted beauty oils are wonderful and all, but so too is a $10 bottle of organic avocado oil that can be used for all of the things. These natural whole food oils for skin and body benefit your skin’s health and your bank account, too.
3 Natural Oils for Skin:
1. Avocado Oil
Good for: all skin types, face and body.
About: Packed with antioxidants, vitamins A, D, and E, and monounsaturated fatty acids, avocado oil is serious skin food. With a slightly thick consistency, a little avocado oil can go a long way to calm itchy, dry skin and moisturize the face and body.
Avocado oil may also benefit those with plaque psoriasis, an autoimmune condition that causes uncomfortable scaly and red patches on skin. A 2001 study found that avocado oil mixed with vitamin B12 cream eased psoriasis symptoms longer than the traditional treatment cream. How to use: Use a few drops of avocado oil as a face oil, eye makeup remover, and gently around the eye area. Avocado oil can be liberally slathered on the body, too.
