Ageing is a natural part of life but while most of us can embrace the idea of growing older and wiser, the physical signs of ageing are often much harder to accept. From increased dullness and age spots to dryness, wrinkles and fine lines; one glance in the mirror can often leave us longing for the youthful glow we once had.
But what causes these signs of ageing?
Although much of this occurs as part of the natural ageing process, there are certain lifestyle habits or poor skincare practices that can often speed this process up. Some of the most common causes include smoking, excessive drinking, sleep deprivation, lack of exercise and over-exposure to the sun’s UV rays. While we can’t reverse time or drink from the ‘fountain of youth’, we can still find natural ways to reduce wrinkles and slow down signs of early ageing.
One of the best natural solutions to reviving ageing skin is using essential oils. These oils have unique properties which can be used to solve an array of skincare issues including reducing the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
Which Essential Oils Are The Best For Anti-Ageing?
In order to determine which essential oils are best, it’s important to understand the science behind ageing skin and how these oils can play a role in the process. One of the main factors that impact physical ageing is the presence of free radicals in the skin. Free radicals can be naturally made in the body but can also come from exposure to toxins, pollution, cigarette smoke, and the sun. These are unstable molecules that steal electrons from your skin cells, destroying DNA and causing skin damage. As we age we also naturally produce less oil and can therefore be prone to dry, cracked skin due to a lack of moisture. So any essential oil you choose should have free-radical fighting properties and/or moisturising abilities in order to provide a more youthful glow.
Luckily, we have an amazing range of anti-ageing skincare products right here on Veo that are toxin-free, natural and organic; formulated into luxurious blends that nourish and moisturise the skin while protecting against damage. Discover our top picks below:
