I thought I blogged about the skin benefits of grapeseed oil long ago, but I was wrong. I integrated grapeseed oil into my skin routine over two years ago. I’ve been mixing it with my jojoba oil and tea tree oil and using it as my moisturizer in the morning. I’ll often use it alone on my face/neck area as well as a body moisturizer. I also include it in my hair butters that I prepare. It is my favorite all around, go to oil. It is a light oil, that once it’s absorbed into the skin, it doesn’t feel greasy. I have naturally oily skin and have nothing but positive results from using this and the other oils I use in combination. I do have to wait for about ten minutes in the morning before I start my makeup application.
Grapeseed oil helps fight acne as it’s a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It’s high in omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E, C, D and linoleic acid. It is supposed to help fight wrinkles and acne scars.
It is a cooking oil, but I’ve been using oil designed or marketed for hair and skin. I usually get my oil from Amazon and prefer organic, which is shown below.
