How to keep a youthful skin introducing essential oils in your daily skincare routine.

Essential oils are becoming increasingly popular as a result of their extensive use in aromatherapy specifically for emotional support and stress release, but what about the anti-ageing effects for the skin?

When buying anti-ageing lotions we often look for products containing ingredients like rosehip, jojoba, argan, avocado oil, and well-known compounds as retinol and hyaluronic acid, but what about essential oils? Essential oils are proven to have high anti-ageing properties and to be valid allies in fighting premature ageing. Diluted in serum and facial lotions they are a natural and effective remedy to combat skin stains and loss of elasticity. Ageing can affect the appearance of the skin and its structure impacting the main qualities of youthful skin as moisture, elasticity and glow. The skin loses elasticity becoming thinner and drier due to the decrease in collagen and elastin. Essential oils so rich in anti-oxidants, main ingredients against free-radicals, can slow down the ageing process as a result of their soothing, toning, moisturizing effect on the skin and minimise fine lines and wrinkles."
