#1. Jojoba oil
The seeds from the jojoba plant have actually been used for hundreds of years to treat skin ailments. And that’s because it’s packed with moisture and rich in vitamin E, vitamin B, and zinc.
In fact, with regular use, this essential oil and its anti-inflammatory properties may reduce acne while simultaneously stimulating collagen production. That’s why it’s featured in our Nutri-Cell Complex.
Featured in our Viviane Woodard products
As an anti-aging cream, this product delivers powerful essential vitamins and minerals to your skin cells. Vitamin E helps to fight against environmental pollutants such as free radicals.
And Vitamin A helps to repair injured skin, improving the quality and contour of dry and scaly skin. But that’s not all.
Vitamin C also makes an appearance in this unique formulation. And this antioxidant has been proven to increase collagen synthesis which is essential for maintaining healthy skin.
All of these essential components come together to help you fight wrinkles and dry skin. And with the help of jojoba oil, you can prevent premature aging while addressing any other ailments or conditions.
Suffice it to say that we’re a big fan of jojoba oil here at Viviane Woodard. And we think you will be too.
#2. Avocado oil
Avocado oil is often used as a carrier oil in beauty products. But this facial oil has plenty to offer on its own.
Avocado isn’t just for toast anymore!
Its anti-inflammatory effects are known to offer anti-aging benefits as they boost collagen production. Not to mention that it’s also packed with antioxidant properties as well.
Dry skin can especially benefit from a face oil with avocado oil in it. This oil’s essential fatty acids can also help to strengthen the skin’s lipid layer.
#3. Vitamin E oil
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and essential oil on its own. But not many people know the benefits of applying vitamin E topically through face oils.
Spritzing for mega moisture
Take our Intensive Hydration Mist, for example. With the help of vitamin E, our hydration mist helps to fight against free radical damage and other environmental pollutants.
And as far as anti-aging goes, this essential oil penetrates the skin deeply to plump it with phospholipids, making your skin aging journey a thing of the past. Besides, our hydration mist also contains antimicrobial and antioxidant elements.
So you can significantly increase and maintain the amount of moisture content you’re delivering to your skin. Our cell respirator ingredients also provide much needed oxygen to the cell nucleus at the inner layers of the skin.
Think you need to up your game in the anti-aging products department? Then give this one and our water-based moisturizer a try!
#4. Coconut oil
Coconut oil is another one of the more popular carrier oils out there. But even so, it offers plenty of anti-inflammatory effects and fatty acids on its own that help to improve the skin barrier.
A carrier oil for all skin types
Those with acne-prone skin can also benefit from coconut oil. Its natural lauric acid contains antibacterial properties to fight against acne breakouts.
And even for those with normal skin, coconut oil can protect the skin from sun damage. That’s one of the leading causes of premature skin aging and skin cancer.
So yeah, we’d recommend incorporating a few drops of coconut oil into your anti-aging routine. And with coconut oil, it’s super easy.
You can mix most essential oils with coconut oil to make for an easy application. Or, you can simply massage coconut oil onto your skin after a bath or shower.
For best results, apply coconut oil daily. And even exfoliate your skin naturally with a mixture of coconut oil and granulated sugar once a week!
See? There really are a ton of different ways to use coconut oil. What can we say? It’s the oil that keeps on giving.
#5. Argan oil
You might think that if you have oily skin, then essential oils are not for you. But with argan oil, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Argan oil is great at improving skin elasticity and boosting collagen production. But the best part about it is that it gets absorbed quickly by the skin and all without leaving any oily or greasy residue.
For best results, apply essential oils at nighttime for your skin to soak up all the benefits. Then you won’t have to wake up to new wrinkles, but rather to a younger-looking and more even skin tone!
#6. Rosehip oil
Something people don’t tell you about the aging process is dark spots. But luckily, rosehip oil gives hyperpigmentation the boot as it fights inflammation and increases elasticity.
Rosehip oil vs. rose oil
It’s easy to confuse these two essential oils. After all, they use the same plant!
But rosehip oil is made from the seeds of rose hips. Whereas rose oil is extracted from the petals of the flower.
That being said, both offer a host of benefits. Just different ones from each other.
Rosehip is a bit heavier than its rosy counterpart and is great for nighttime use. But don’t think that those with oily skin can’t still reap the benefits because they can!
On the other hand, rose is particularly good at treating stress-induced redness on sensitive skin. That being said, the fragrance of rose can be overwhelming for some skin types.
If you want to get the benefits of both, then there are plenty of products out there that use rosehip oil as a carrier oil for rose oil. So you really can get the best of both worlds!
#7. Lavender oil
Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils out there and is known for its calming aroma. In fact, studies have found that lavender oil can actually reduce the amount of oxidative stress on the brain.
And that’s not even mentioning the benefits of lavender when used topically. When blended with coconut oil, lavender can help heal certain skin conditions like cuts and burns.
And it can help fight against free radical damage while offering plenty of anti-aging benefits too. So if you have specific spots you want to address, apply this essential oil right before bed and see the results the next morning.
#8. Grapeseed oil
If you’re looking for another essential oil that has an ancient history attached to it, then look no further than grapeseed oil. This essential oil was used by ancient Greeks for its medicinal purposes.
And its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties are still being put to use today. Like in our cruelty free anti-aging eye cream.
Great for under-eye puffiness
With the help of essential oils like grapeseed oil, our powerful eye cream treatment stimulates collagen production. And all while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
As a multi-functional complex, this anti-aging product is one you won’t want to miss out on. Not only does it contain four different humectants to achieve the proper moisture balance around your delicate eye area.
It also includes vital extracts like cucumber, horse chestnut, and butcher’s broom to boost the effectiveness of grapeseed oil. You can say we’re biased. But there’s virtually no other cream out there that can do what ours does.
#9. Almond oil
This essential oil is yet another one that you should be including in your anti-aging routine. Its anti-inflammatory benefits are a perfect fit for those who suffer from eczema or psoriasis.
Not to mention that it can improve your complexion, appearance of scars, and even out your skin tone. This oil’s hydrating effects also help to promote better circulation in the skin.
And some studies have even found that its topical application can prevent and reverse sun damage. That’s a pretty amazing resume if you ask us!
#10. Frankincense oil
Unfortunately, we’re not presenting Frankincense alongside Myrrh. But you’ll be happy to know that frankincense essential oil offers plenty of benefits on its own.
Who needs Myrrh?
Native to India and the Middle East, this essential oil may help reduce the appearance of sunspots. And those wanting to improve wrinkles and even stretch marks may reap similar benefits too.
Not to mention that frankincense has been known to generate new skin cells when applied topically. So if you’ve got some dead skin cells you want to have turn over, consider this essential oil for your skincare routine.
#11. Olive oil
You may only know this carrier oil as your first choice for cooking. But when applied topically, olive oil offers a host of benefits like the other essentials oils listed here.
A treat for your skin and your salads
With plenty of fatty acids, vitamin E, and vitamin A, this oil is able to fight free radical damage. And stimulate the production of collagen.
When applied regularly, this oil can help improve blood circulation while reducing the signs of aging. So yeah, you’ll want to drizzle this over your skin and your salads.
#12. Lemon oil
Lemons contain a high vitamin C content. So much so that some people eat lemons just to reap the benefits and bolster their immune system!
We’re not necessarily advocating that you eat lemons to get those benefits. But in case you’re not a fan of a sour sucker punch, you can apply lemon oil to the skin to prevent damage from sun exposure.
Be weary of skin sensitivity with lemon oil
Lemon can heighten your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. So it’s best to apply this oil at night before bedtime.
That way, you can reap the benefits. And all without worrying about causing further damage.
#13. Apricot oil
If you’re looking for nourishment and rejuvenation, then apricot oil has exactly what you need. This oil is chock full of vitamin E as well as linoleic and oleic acids.
These properties are known to clear skin up. And those with dry skin can especially soak up the benefits as its fatty acid makeup absorbs well into the skin.
Additionally, those looking to reduce wrinkles can enjoy the benefits that this oil has to offer. So it’s not just a delicious treat – it’s something that can heal you from the inside out!
The bottom line
Anti-aging routines can sometimes feel like difficult terrain to traverse. But with these essential oils, you’ll feel packed and prepped for your trip.
After all, each of these is naturally derived. And many have a long history of being used.
So you know that you can trust the very best. You’ve got history on your side!
