THE STAR OILS THAT YOUR SKIN WILL LOVE
Black-cumin-seed oil: Cleopatra used to smooth this bounty from the Egyptian Nile Valley over her hair and skin. It boasts a high concentration of antioxidants and nourishing amino and fatty acids, as well as vitamin A, which
helps skin cells turn over. Rosehip-seed oil: Chilean Malbec isn’t the only coveted export from this South American country. Found in the Andes mountains and once used by the Mayans, this oil bolsters the skin’s moisture barrier and is a natural wrinkle fighter thanks to a wealth of skin-repairing omega fatty acids. Camellia-seed oil: In the fashion industry, the camellia flower (harvested in China and eastern and southern Asia) is synonymous with Chanel. But beauty insiders love the plant’s moisturizing vitamin E, skin-protecting polyphenols and oleic acid (a skin-barrier enhancer).
