Fine lines, saggy skin and wrinkles are all caused by the aging process. Over age, the skin loses its natural oil production, which has to be replaced in order to preserve the skin. Luckily, there are numerous natural anti-aging oils that are going to hydrate your skin and keep it alive.
Argan oil is plant oil which is produced by the kernels of the argan tree, native to Morocco. It is very often used to dip bread in at breakfast, but it has a number of cosmetic uses as well. Argan oil is very rich in vitamins A and E, and applying it regularly on the skin can clean it deeply and nourish it with many nutrients. This is the reason why it’s important to add this oil in your diet and regularly clean your facial skin with it.
Another great oil for the skin is olive oil. It contains many healthy nutrients for the skin such as vitamin A and E, but it also contains minerals and fatty acids that will fight free radicals in the body. Add olive oil in your diet, or you can massage your skin with warm olive oil for about 5-10 minutes before taking a bath in order to improve your blood circulation and keep it hydrated.
Almond oil can treat wrinkles and delay the aging process thanks to the high amount of vitamin E and vitamin K. Massage some of it into your skin after taking a bath and you will rejuvenate it. A couple of drops of warm almond oil applied beneath the eyelids before going to bed will remove the dark circles from under your eyes and strengthen the fragile skin there.
Coconut oil is amazing for preventing wrinkles and other aging signs. It is also a great replacement for sunscreen, so you could safely use it when going to the beach. Massaging the skin with a bit of coconut oil after taking a shower is going to help retain the skin moisture.
Jojoba oil is also amazing for the skin, and can be safely used for rejuvenating it once a day.
Avocado oil is amazing for people with dry skin because it hydrates it and prevents the signs of the aging process. The oil contains plenty of vitamin A and E and can easily reverse age-related skin damage. Regularly using avocado oil on the skin will keep your cells and tissues healthy.
Lavender essential oil has a sweet fragrance, used in numerous cosmetic products. It has powerful antifungal and antiseptic properties that will treat numerous conditions.

The mask doesn’t have to be cleaned off. Repeat the process every night before going to sleep for best results.
Wheat germ oil
Wheat germ oil has very powerful regenerating properties that will keep your skin look youthful thanks to the high vitamin A and vitamin E content. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which will protect your skin cells from the free radical damage.
