Our skin loves healthy fat and oil! Our skins’ love affair with fat is based on the chemical makeup of our skin cells’ structure. The exterior barrier of each skin cell is made of what is known as a double lipid fatty bilayer, a funny name indeed, but what it means is that the exterior of each and everyone one of our billions of skin cells are made of fat. So in short, our skin loves fat.
I know oil might sound scary to put on our skin, especially our face, but the right type of oil will actually absorb quickly, balance skins’ oil production and hydrate skin to diminish fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful and healthy complexion!
Plant-oils are particularly beneficial for our skins health. Sweet Almond Oil is one of the more notable plant-oils for skin health, it provides our skin with an abundance of healthy fats in addition to a myriad of anti-inflammatory and anti-aging nutrients such as vitamin E and phytosterols.
