Grapes are one of the summer’s most refreshing fruits that pack loads of vitamins. The oil extracted from its seeds, however, is literally every beauty enthusiast’s dream. Using it as a face mask, a facial cleanser or a hair mask will totally kick your beauty regimen up a notch.
Major Skin Benefits:
Rich in vitamins C, D & E, grapeseed oil is great for boosting skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and also healing acne scars. Also, its high content of antioxidants makes it great for treating acne. Because this oil does not clog pores, it can penetrate and clean them leaving the face all cleansed and moisturized. You can apply it as a face mask for half an hour before rinsing it off.
Nourish That Mane:
As we mentioned earlier, grape seed oil is rich in vitamin E, which works on building tissues- this, in turn, allows it to strengthen and repair damaged hair. Grapeseed oil is actually great for people with oily hair as it is one of the lightest natural oils out there with minimal consistency- yes, it’s lighter than coconut oil. So, you can get all the benefits without the risk of greasy hair. Lastly, grapeseed oil has linoleic acid, which stimulates hair growth.
So, how can you actually use it? For the face, grapeseed oil can be used as a mask all on its own. Simply add a drop to every part of the face and massage the oil for a few seconds then leave it on your face for 10 minutes before rinsing it off. It can also be used as a night serum where you leave it on as you doze off and rinse it off in the morning. As for the hair, you can apply it to the roots and ends to slightly damp hair and leave it on for half an hour before showering once a week.
All in all, we have to say that the answer to all our beauty dilemmas can definitely be found in nature. No chemicals or expensive products needed- just knowing the right all-natural solutions to go to.
