Best Oils to Use in an Anti-Aging Serum and How to Make Your Own

What is an anti-aging oil serum?

An anti-aging oil serum is a blend of plant oils, which work synergistically to reverse the effects of skin aging.

Used for centuries throughout the world to treat skin, facial oil serums are just starting to make a name for themselves, and rightfully so. If you tend to think of oils as the enemy of a clear complexion, you may be missing out on great products for your skin Gluteboost. Counter-intuitive as it may sound, using an oil serum can actually have amazing benefits for your skin.

Why use it?

Skin pollution is the main source of damage to the skin. Stress, fatigue, polluted air and water, makeup, UV radiation create millions of toxins and free-radicals that accumulate on the skin, suffocating your complexion, causing breakouts and speeding up the aging process.

Facial oils are the fastest way to fortify and strengthen our own natural skin barrier, restoring the skin’s first defense against skin pollution. If properly chosen, cold-pressed plant oils boost radiance, give much needed moisture, and can help fight breakouts and discoloration. Oils have the capacity to deliver antioxidants, vitamins and omega fatty acids deeper into the skin, delivering results you will most likely notice after the first application.

Best Anti-aging Oils

These are a few of my favourites carrier oils to use in a blend, since they are rich in anti-aging compounds such as essential fatty acids, antioxidants, flavonoids, polyphenols and vitamins. Easily absorbed into the skin, they will nourish and help to refine mature, aging skin.

Argan oil

Lovingly referred to as Liquid Gold by the people of Morocco, Argan is an excellent oil for use in skin care and for treating problem skin. Light and capable of penetrating the skin without feeling greasy, this oil is considered anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing. Palmitic Acid in this oil (12-14%) has antimicrobial properties, protecting the skin from unwanted penetration of environmental substances. Oleic Acid (Omega 9), present in a high percentage (45-47%), helps maintain the suppleness, flexibility and softness of the skin.
