Say Yes to Grapeseed Oil in Your Skincare for younger, smoother skin

Grapeseed Oil is fast becoming a star of skincare and here’s why:

Face oils often get a bad rep. From the misconception face oils can clog pores, create excess sebum and even cause breakouts, the varying reports of people claiming oil is bad for you means most people tend to stay away from them.

As someone who deals daily with excess oils and clogged pores, I can relate to the fear of using a face oil. And, although my education on face oils has changed over the last few years I am still apprehensive most days to apply a thick layer of oil onto already oily skin.

But, with that being said, not all facial oils are created equal and many have been expertly crafted by skincare specialists to create products which will not cause breakouts or clog pores.

These are called non-comedogenic oils as they won’t clog your pores. And Grapeseed Oil is one of them. Not only will it not clog the pores, it’s anti-ageing, it hydrates and clarifies the skin, all without causing breakouts or leaving that icky oily feeling on the skin after using.

Of course, this doesn’t mean you should head to your nearest grocery store and grab a bottle of cooking-grade Grapeseed Oil to rub into your face. Many beauty brands are jumping on board with this fabulous oil, and including it into their facial oil ingredients.

And surprisingly enough, this all-natural oil, which has flown under the radar for many years, can actually help fight breakouts and fade scarring from previous acne.

According to Medical News Today Grapeseed Oil contains A potent concentration of Vitamin E and linoleic acid, which are two powerful fatty acids that strengthen the skin’s barrier and function as A shield against harmful environmental elements.

And the Linus Pauling Institute reported Grapeseed Oil contains omega-6 and omega-3, fatty acids which are crucial to skin function and appearance. And omega-6 fatty acids, which are necessary for skin barrier functioning.

They concluded Grapeseed Oil in your beauty routine can be beneficial for moisturising the skin, healing acne, lighten skin, tighten pores, reduce the appearance of scarring and even remove makeup without the use of any chemical-based ingredients.

Medical News Today confirmed it is okay to use your basic supermarket Grapeseed Oil, straight from the bottle, which will only set you back around $13 depending what size and where you purchase it from.

But if you are hesitant to do this, check out these four beauty products which contain Grapeseed Oil, along with loads of other beneficial ingredients which help promote healthy skin.

My Favourite Product of the Week:

Miss Frankie Nail Polish in shade ‘Have We Met?’ RRP $22

Dunne. Jin Soon Choi – one of the most influential nail artists in the industry from Korea and living in New York has spoken. Blue is definitely an IT colour for 2020.

Miss Frankie Nail Polish is vegan, cruelty-free, free from at least ten harsh chemicals, and Australian born and bred. And what a great name too.

This polish is easy to apply, has a perfectly crafted brush which allows for an easy stroke of colour across the nails, without having to apply additional coats on the first go, and it doesn’t smell like other nail polish brands. As it’s free from ten harsh chemicals often found in nail polish, the smell of this one is faint and easy to deal with when apply your manicure.

The texture is smooth and applies evenly with one stroke on the nails. though it does dry quickly, so be quick with your application, or you May find a few streaks. This polish doesn’t thicken too fast like other brands, meaning, you can get at least a few months out of the product before it starts to thicken.

You will need to apply a second coat, particularly with this navy blue shade. One shade doesn’t quite cut it, especially at the tips where the nail is more transparent. however, two coats is sufficient enough to give you a beautiful finish.

I’m seriously loving the shade of rich Navy Blue, which is not a colour I tend to lean to. I certainly stepped out of my comfort zone using this shade, but it was hella worth it.
