You’ll want to add these fruit and plant-based wonder oils to your beauty kit after reading this.

1. Lime

With a pleasant citrus aroma, this essential oil has a stimulating effect to clear the mind and support healthy skin. Lime provides antioxidant benefits and is a natural antiseptic to cure infections.

2.Sunflower

This botanical oil is known to help increase skin hydration and reduce redness with its anti-inflammatory qualities.

3.Sugarcane

Raw sugarcane, the main source of glycolic acid, can battle skin ageing and treat acne and blackheads.

4.Algae

Beauty oils derived from underwater plants and algae are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids that help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. They regulate sebum production to prevent skin dehydration as well as help produce collagen and elastin for firmer skin.

5.Immortelle

A Corsican flower that never fades even after it’s picked, the immortelle’s rich molecules deliver the perfect ingredient to anti-ageing products.

6.Avocado

Applying avocado oil on your skin will benefit you just as much as eating the fruit. With omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, E and D, this fruit oil moisturises dry skin, prevents acne and shrinks open pores.

7.Rose hip

Ladies, you’ll love rose hip’s firming qualities to help maintain skin elasticity and treat stretch marks. Its natural capabilities make it an excellent ingredient for face, body and hair products to rejuvenate and condition skin.

8.Grape

For acne-prone skin, grapeseed oil is best because of its astringent qualities to regulate your natural oil production. It contains linolenic acid and Vitamin C that work to brighten skin as well.

9.Calendula

Made from the marigold flower, calendula heals and soothes dry skin. It also works well as an anti-inflammatory solution (e.g. for sprained muscles) and has antiseptic qualities to help heal minor cuts and wounds.

10.Carrot seed

Made from the dried seeds of the wild carrot plant, this oil is known to have antiseptic and health benefits. Sometimes used as an aromatherapy stress healer, it’s used in beauty products to nourish and tighten skin.
