3. To seal the moisture into your hair
4. Scalp massages
My faves: jojoba oil, Jamaican black castor oil
Scalp massages are such a good way to stimulate growth because they encourage blood circulation in the scalp. Plus it’s super relaxing! Try to give yourself a scalp massage a few times a week and see how your growth comes along. You can of course do this without oils but it’s more beneficial as many of these oils have great benefits for the skin and hair.
1. Removing make up
My faves: coconut oil, almond oil
Many of these big brand make up wipes or make up removers contain loads of drying and harmful ingredients. I prefer to use natural oils. It removes make up easily (especially troublesome stuff like waterproof mascara and matte lipstick). All I do is apply the oil to a cotton pad and wipe over my eyes and mouth. If I’m wearing loads of make up, I will rub the oil all over my face and then wipe off with a warm damp cloth before washing properly.
2. To moisturise your face
My faves: shea butter, argan oil, vitamin E oil
Ever since I started using oils as a part of my regular skincare routine, my skin has improved immensely, becoming softer, clearer and smoother. All I do is wash my face and while my skin is still damp, I apply the oil to my face and gently massage it in. I especially like to do this at night so that the oil has time to really soak in and work its magic. It has done wonders!!
|Another set of faves: Vitamin E Oil (this is the Nature’s Bounty Brand and can also be taken orally!) and raw shea butter (this is from Raw Apothecary – bought it on Amazon)|
3. Oil cleansing method
My faves: grapeseed oil, olive oil
Did you know that you can actually use oils to clean your face??? Crazy, right? This method is fairly similar to removing your make up. All you do is apply a fairly generous amount of oil to your face and massage your face for a few minutes. I then get a washcloth and soak it in warm/hot water (obviously not boiling hot) and I lay it on my face for about 10 seconds for a mini steaming treatment, then I gently but properly wipe all the oil off my face. This method leaves my skin soft and clean every time!
4. To fade acne scars and discolouration
My faves: almond oil, vitamin E oil
You may or may not know this but a lot of natural oils have vitamin E in them. Vitamin E is a great way to fade scars or dark spots on your face. For example, many people use straight up vitamin E oil on scars on their legs and what not. You can use the oils all over your face or just on the problem areas! It may take some time to fade but I can tell ya, it works!
