Essential oils are concentrated powerhouse remedies. These liquid wonders can do everything from helping your hair shine to removing stretch marks from your rear end. When used properly, they can also tighten your loose skin all over your body. In fact, essential oils can safely be used on your face, stomach, eyes, hips, butt, neck, arms and more.
Mix one of the following 6 essential oils with a carrier oil for an amazing, anti-aging skin care treatment.
1. Jasmine Oil
Like many other essential oils, jasmine oil is known to promote blood circulation thereby helping your skin regenerate cells. With new skin cells, your body can then hydrate skin, providing it with more elasticity and decreasing the appearance of scars and wrinkles. Jasmine oils, like NOW Solutions Jasmine Fragrance, pair well with Molivera Organics Sweet Almond Oil. Mix the two together and apply the solution to any part of your skin that needs to be tightened.
2. Lavender Oil
Lavender is well known for its antibacterial properties. As such, this essential oil can work to tone and rejuvenate the skin. Plus, it smells delightful and has a range of other uses, including stress relief and aiding in sleep. To tighten skin, use Lavender Essential Oil by Sun Essentials with rosehip seed oil for a powerhouse skin treatment.
3. Geranium Oil
Geranium oil is one of the best essential oils for repairing collagen and therefore increasing your skin’s elasticity. That, of course, results in the reduction of wrinkles and stretch marks. In addition, this particular oil supplies extra nourishment to the skin to give you a glowing appearance. A few drops of NOW Foods Geranium Essential Oil mixed with Art Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil makes a lovely facial application.
4. Myrrh Oil
Myrrh oil isn’t just a part of the annual Christmas play. This oil can help improve skin flexibility by oxygenating body tissues. It also moisturizes the skin. Together, these properties treat chapped skin and decrease the appearance of wrinkles. Mix Healing Solutions Myrrh Essential Oil with NOW Foods Avocado Oil and apply to your skin regularly.
5. Frankincense Oil
The small molecular structure of frankincense oil allows it to work wonders on the skin. By penetrating your bodily structure, it protects skin cells while encouraging the growth of new cells. It also keeps the skin oxygenated, which in turn improves elasticity. For these reasons, frankincense is a great oil for tightening skin, especially around the eye area. Pair the Majestic Pure Frankincense Essential Oil with Viva Naturals Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil for a DIY skin care treatment.
6. Neroli Oil
Many experts agree that neroli oil is the best for tightening skin. That’s because it contains citral, a chemical known to regenerate skin cells. In addition, neroli oil helps to improve skin resilience, giving it awesome anti-aging properties. Mix Gya Labs Neroli Essential Oil with Harmonizing Grapeseed Skin Care Oil and apply to your skin liberally.
