THE STAR OILS THAT YOUR SKIN WILL LOVE

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty -

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).
