Anti-Aging Oil: Why adopt it?

Anti-Aging Oil: Why adopt it?

In a world where anti-aging solutions abound, anti-aging oil stands out as a veritable elixir of youth. Used alone or in conjunction with self-massage techniques, it is the new solution for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and plumping the skin. Oils, creams: which to choose? If facial oils are on the rise, it's not just a fashion phenomenon, but a real breakthrough in the cosmetics sector. In fact, numerous scientific studies support the benefits of these oils: skin is more hydrated, plumper, collagen production is boosted... but what makes anti-aging oil so special? 

Oils rich in antioxidants

Anti-aging facial oils are often rich in antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. These components fight free radicals, which are known to accelerate skin aging. A study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology revealed that antioxidants can reduce the damage caused by UV rays and pollution. Using an antioxidant-rich oil helps to nourish the skin, providing it with the lipids it needs to function properly, while protecting it from external aggressors.

 

Moisturizing properties

Moisturization is essential for maintaining skin elasticity. Oils such as argan oil and rosehip oil are rich in essential fatty acids that help retain moisture. Applied to the skin after your usual Appointment routine, the oil will create a protective film on the skin's surface, preventing transepidermal water loss. The result? Skin is more supple in the morning, and fine lines fade away.

 

A natural collagen booster

Collagen gives skin its firmness. Grape seed oil, for example, is known to stimulate collagen production thanks to its high concentration of proanthocyanidins. According to research published in "Experimental Dermatology", proanthocyanidins increase collagen production and help prevent sagging skin (Ndiaye, Philippe, Mukhtar and Ahmad, 2011). To boost the effects of your anti-aging oil, we recommend a few self-massage gestures to drain the face and stimulate the cells responsible for collagen production.

 

Anti-inflammatory properties

Skin inflammation can accelerate the aging process. Oils such as jojoba oil or tamanu oil have anti-inflammatory properties. We therefore advise you to identify your needs and find a suitable oil, or opt for a cocktail of natural facial oils that will target a broader spectrum.

 

The little extra?

Facial oils are versatile and can be easily integrated into any skincare routine. They are ideal for self-massage, which is known to reduce tension built up in facial muscles, boost lymphatic function and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
