O.k. so I gave you a little info on what is carrier oils? I also posted a few blogs back on a couple of carrier oils you may not know about. And like I said in the last post it dawned on me most people don’t know what the heck a Carrier Oil is and what it does! ( I never new the exact phrase myself)
So since I figured out I wanted to share this with all of you and its an important topic to me, I’m going to the next part..Carrier Oils By Skin Type. Of course this isn’t the law. This is just a general linguine to help you choose the best for you. Example, my daughter should be using grape seed because its better for oily problem skin. But no she does better with coconut oil! Crazy but it works for her (As a face-wash)
The secret of Carrier Oils is that they too will keep you looking younger longer. The regenerative properties of certain Carrier Oils are effective-with the right minerals and nutrients present to help retain skins elasticity, hydration., and firmness. Carrier Oils soothe and nourish the delicate skin of our face. They seal the skin, help retain moisture and provide protection from surface contaminants. The best Carrier Oils deliver these benefits without clogging pores. Below are a few per skin type.
Normal Skin: Avocado, Apricot, Argan, Grape seed, Jojoba, Peach Kernel, Sesame, Sunflower, Sweet Almond, Wheatgerm .
Dry Skin: Avocado, Apricot, Argau,, Babassu, Calendula, Camellia, Castor, Coconut, Cranberry, Evening Primrose, Olive, Hazelnut, Kukui Nut, Macadamia, Meadowfoam seed, Neem, Peach Kernel, Tamanu, Wheatgerm.

I hope you liked this list. Please leave me a comment on my website at http://katscorneressentiallysimple.com See I think its fantastic adding my essential oils and making my own serums that actually work.. I am now making skin care products that Im seeing results from. I love it! And I know exactly whats in them! I buy the best quality Carrier Oils and I buy the best quality essential oils from Young Living because I know I always get 100% pure superior quality and never altered in any way . I am not adding any chemicals or toxic products for my skin to absorb that can actually age your skin. (Better late than never)! And I may be buying some expensive Essential Oils to add to my skin care regime.But in reality Im not. That one bottle of essential oil used for my skin care product may last me a year. As opposed to that same cost to purchase a one time product from a beauty counter.
Im not suddenly wrinkle free and look 20 but Im pretty happy with how my skin has been looking and texture and elasticity. Which is alot for me to actually say!
And I can rub anything I put on my skin into the dogs coat for there benefit also! (honey coconut and wheatgerm for example). Can you say that about Clinique? No!
