Camellia Oil for Skin Care
Camellia Seed Oil, or camellia oil, is obtained from the evergreen shrub called camellia, which contains rose-like flowers and shiny leaves. Based on anecdotal evidence, it can be said that the oil works as a multi-purpose moisturizer. Traditionally used mostly by East Asian women, the oil not only nourishes hair and skin, but also provides anti-aging benefits. Many refer to it as ‘miracle oil’. The oil is extracted with the help of a combination of cold pressing and advanced refining. During the refining phase, camellia seeds are put through degreasing, filtering and deodorizing. In the end, fully organic and pure oil is obtained – oil that is natural and has no preservatives, residues or odor.
BENEFITS OF CAMELLIA OIL FOR SKIN
Camellia oil provides you these benefits:
1. Moisturizing effect
As camellia oil is able to penetrate deeply and quickly, your skin gets optimum hydration when it is applied. You do not need to bear any greasy feel. Regular use of the oil makes your skin firm, smooth and refreshed.
2. Replenishing effect
Enhancing skin resilience is one thing the oil can do very well. Also, it gives your skin a radiant and supple glow. Other than that, your skin benefits from a unique luminous silkiness due to its use.
3. Restorative effect
The oil diminishes acne scars, pores and fine lines, too. Pregnancy marks and other stretch marks can be eliminated with its help, as well.
4. Protective effect
Owing to the presence of antioxidants, polyphenol, Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C and Vitamin E, camellia oil can protect your skin from the UV rays and certain free radicals. It can do the same for your hair, too.
HOW TO USE CAMELLIA OIL FOR SKIN CARE
1. Face care
Cleanse your face and apply 3 or 4 oil drops on your face, as well as throat. Do it every night and morning. The oil can help your eyes become less puffy, and free of fine lines and dark circles. Be sure to massage it thoroughly and gently, in order to make sure that it is absorbed fully by your skin. You can use it solely, or can mix it with your preferred sunscreen.
2. Scalp care
Shampoo your hair and apply 3 or 4 drops of the oil to your scalp and hair. After that, for about 20 to 30 minutes, keep your hair wrapped using a warm towel. Rinsing off is not necessary.
3. Stretch mark care
Massage a few drops of the oil circularly on the affected area two times per day.
