Apricot oil has become a popular skincare ingredient over the years, and for good reason.
This little wonder works well to moisturise the skin and is perfect for those of us who are a little sensitive and need something non-irritating.
Apricot oil is extracted from the seeds of apricots and provides a whole heap of skin benefits, but we’re going to narrow it down to just 5.
1. Softens And Moisturises The Skin
Rich in Vitamin E and C, apricot oil helps to maintain your skin’s moisture balance by deeply nourishing the skin. It’s easily absorbed given the fact that it resembles the naturally produced oil sebum of the skin and improves skin tone while maintaining softness and radiance.
2. Strengthens Skin
You may have used apricot oil on your lips at one point because of its ability to strengthen the barrier of the skin. Its omega 6 strengthens while its omega 9 softens and gives a satin-like feel.
3. Keeps Skin Firm And Toned
Apricot oil helps the skin retain its elasticity and suppleness keeping it firm and tight (perfect for that peach). The vitamin E and C both work in partnership to not only moisturise but to also improve skin tone and keep your skin young and fresh.
Because the oil helps to nourish the skin so well it in turn reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It contains vitamin A which if often used as retinol, helping to rebuild collagen and reverse the signs of ageing.
5. Promotes A Bright, Healthy Glow
If you’re after a radiant complexion, this baby is your go to. Naturally high in vitamin E it helps protect cells from damaging outside factors and promotes a healthy vibrant glow all year round.
