If you are into facial oils, you must give macadamia oil a try. Keep reading to get to know more about this amazing oil and why you need to try it.
Macadamia oil is obtained from macadamia nuts. It is rich in vitamin E, unsaturated fats and is antioxidant in nature. That’s why it is pretty common in many skincare products. But you can also use it alone as facial oil. It protects from UV radiations, prevents wrinkles, and encourages cell regeneration; this is why it is often found in anti aging products.
It is clear and light, just like olive oil, and absorbs quickly. It has an emollient effect and moisturizes dry skin; excellent for reducing stretch marks, chapped skin, and acne scars. Avoid using it if you have oily skin as it may clog your pores.
Benefits of Macadamia oil:
- Due to its anti-inflammatory effect, it is quite effective for itching and redness.
- It strengthens and conditions the hair and gives it a smooth and shiny look.
Though it is hypoallergenic, those who have a nut allergy should be cautious. To be on the safer side, it is better to consult your pharmacist and do a patch test before applying it to your face.
