Best Natural Facial Oils for Glowing Skin

Best Natural Facial Oils for Glowing Skin - A Bella Adventure
I have been using natural facial oils on my skin for years due to their many benefits including anti-ageing effects and gorgeous glowing skin. The essential nutrients in natural, plant-derived oils work to keep the skin hydrated and moisturised. Natural facial oils are rich in antioxidants and play a crucial role in fighting free radicals that are responsible for premature ageing. Fatty acids found in natural oils strengthen and nourish, whilst also helping to regulate sebum production and deliver shine-free skin. They help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars, maintain skin hydration and softness, improve the appearance of dry skin, minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote skin elasticity and texture. Natural facial oils can be used alone or added to your favourite moisturiser. Always look for cold-pressed oils, these are more potent as the nutrients have not been altered by the heat during the extraction process.

Rosehip Oil
Rosehip oil is light, easily absorbed and non greasy, making it suitable for all skin types. It is rich in anti-ageing antioxidants, vitamins A, C & E and essential fatty acids (omega 3, 6 and 9). Vitamin A protects the skin while increasing cell turnover. Vitamin C plays a key role in collagen synthesis (more elastic and firm skin), enhances the skins natural healing process, and has a brightening effect. This miracle in a bottle can help to treat a range of skin concerns including dry or dehydrated skin, acne, wrinkles, pigmentation and scars. Rosehip oil not only moisturises, but locks in moisture to keep skin fresh and dewy.

Jojoba Oil
Jojoba oil is packed with powerful anti-ageing vitamins, antioxidants and omega fatty acids. Suitable for all skin types but especially ideal for those with sensitive skin. It regulates sebum levels, delivering balanced skin and fewer breakouts. Jojoba oil has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that can help to prevent acne. This multi-tasking oil can also be used as a makeup remover. Jojoba oil replenishes moisture levels, naturally plumps the skin and locks in moisture. It doesn’t clog pores and leaves skin feeling silky smooth.

Chia Seed Oil
Chia seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids, minerals, B-vitamins, amino acids, and anti-ageing antioxidants. Chia seeds are one of nature’s richest sources of omega 3. This pale yellow oil is rich in omega 3 essential fatty acids and is known to maintain moisture levels and encourage collagen and elastin production, supporting the skin’s structure, shape and texture. Chia seed oil contains the perfect 3-to-1 balance of omega 3 to omega 6 essential fatty acids for optimum skin nourishment. This lightweight oil doesn’t clog pores and is quickly absorbed into the skin.

Argan Oil
This relatively lightweight oil doesn’t clog pores, making it ideal for all skin types. Argan oil is the ideal choice for those with sensitive skin as it is very gentle and nourishing on the skin. It has a high concentration of anti-ageing antioxidants and essential fatty acids, instantly reviving the appearance of skin or hair by providing a healthy and beautiful sheen. Vitamin E and fatty acids give a natural hydration boost, intense moisturisation and improve the overall condition of the skin. Thanks to its rich composition, argan oil nourishes the skin, leaving it soft, supple and illuminated.

Facial Oil Tip: after cleansing, apply natural facial oils on slightly damp skin for an added moisture boost. It helps trap extra moisture. Warm 2-3 drops between your fingertips and gently massage your face and neck area, until fully absorbed.

    You’ve inspired me to break out my rosehip oil, I really don’t use oils enough. I also won one in a giveaway that I want to trial. Great description of what each of the oil types do!

  • I am loving facial oils at the moment especially as we move into Winter and my skin is a little more dry. Rosehip is definitely a fave :) x

  • Laura Tough

    Oh my gosh I’m not sure which one to try but I’m leaning towards the Rosehip oil as I have only heard amazing things about this product. Thanks for your break down on each product xoxo

  • Love this! I am just starting to try out a few more oils – might have to add these to my list!

  • what a fantastic selection! I recently started using snowflower oil from edible beauty and I LOVE it so much!

  • Oh I didn’t know about the benefits of jojoba oil! I got gifted a set of shower gel/moisturiser with jojoba oil in it for Christmas :)

    I used rosehip oil for some scars on my legs, will need to use it again for my face after I’m finished breastfeeding.

    • There are so many great uses and benefits of all these natural oils! The gift set containing Jojoba oil sounds lovely.

  • I LOVE face oils too! I wish so much that I could use the rosehip oils but they always make me breakout. One of my favourite oils is Avacado oil! On the pricier side, I love Holisitic Vanity Camellia oil (it’s a blend of oils that includes calming camellia).

    • Facial oils are the best! I have heard that Rosehip oil doesn’t work for some people. Avocado oil is another good one. The Camellia oil sounds great too.

  • I have so many facial oils but I don’t use them as often as I should! But I love the Goodness Chia Seed Oil too – it absorbs beautifully into my skin x

    • Love that Goodness Chia Seed Oil. I have so many facial oils too. I have gotten in the habit of using one every night and my skin loves it ♡

  • I have quite a few on my bench, including the Rosehip Plus one – madly trying to use up several of my other serums so I can get back into these nourishing face carers. Beaut and super useful info hon xxx

  • I am a facial oil lover too. I have so many on hand it’s not even funny. I still think Trilogy’s original Rosehip oil is one of the best though.

  • I love facial oils, at the moment I’m using jojoba co’s jojoba and rosehip oil. So many lovely blends to explore.

    • I can’t get enough of facial oils! It’s fantastic that there are so many lovely natural facial oils available.
