The Best Essential Oils For Age Spots
Age spots, also called sunspots, commonly show up on the visible areas of our skin that have endured a lot of sun exposure. They can appear more noticeable for some skin types for many reasons, from genetic factors, aging, to unprotected sun exposure. They often look grey, dark, patchy, and can be various sizes. Many essential oils help reduce these age spots by lightening the dark patches on the skin and delivering nutrients to the skin barrier.
Discover how to utilize these six essential oils to reduce dark spots, balance skin tone, and speed up the healing process of sun-damaged skin using Cruz Hemp’s CBD Jojoba carrier oil with a few drops of the essential oils listed below. For each teaspoon of carrier oil add two drops of essential oil. Follow the chart below.
Lavender essential oil
Cruz Hemp Lavender essential oil has antioxidant properties that reduce the appearance of age spots and wrinkles, with additional antibacterial benefits. The soothing aroma of Lavender combined with Cruz Hemp CBD Jojoba carrier oil and Pomegranate Seed oil makes a moisturizing topical for the face and body. This topical makes for a lovely night time application. The scent induces a calming feeling and deep sleep.
Frankincense essential oil
Making a skin topical with Cruz Hemp Frankincense essential oil helps promote the growth of new skin cells, and may tighten the skin, reduce scar marks, dark spots, and balance your complexion. Create a body topical with Cruz Hemp CBD Jojoba carrier oil, Frankincense oil, and Pomegranate oil. This blend is excellent for faces and can also be applied anywhere on the body to reduce sunspots and support skin health.
Orange Essential oil
Cruz Hemp Sweet Orange essential oil has natural skin lightening effects. Blend Cruz Hemp CBD Jojoba carrier oil with Sweet Orange essential oil and apply to the face and body. This topical oil diminishes the appearance of dark spots and delivers vitamin C into the skin barrier. Orange oil is phototoxic; it is best to wait at least two hours after application before exposing skin to sunlight.
Tea Tree Essential oil
Tea tree oil has many benefits in skincare. It works great for clearing up skin problems, reducing dark spots, and detoxifying the skin. Tea tree oil gently resurfaces the skin, reducing blemishes, and promoting healing to sun damage and scars. Combine Cruz Hemp Tea tree oil with our CBD infused Jojoba carrier oil, or coconut oil and massage into skin.
Rosemary Essential oil
Fading dark spots on the skin and reducing wrinkles can be done by regularly adding Rosemary essential oil to your favorite skincare carrier oil. Rosemary has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, which help reduce the appearance of skin damage from free radicals. Mix three drops of Rosemary essential oil into a carrier oil and apply on the face and body to diminish the appearance of sunspots.
Sandalwood Essential oil
Sandalwood has a lovely scent and works synergistically with Cruz Hemp CBD Jojoba carrier oil to reduce the appearance of dark spots from UV rays. Sandalwood naturally lightens the skin, delivers moisture, and reduces inflammation on the skin’s surface.
Never apply essential oils undiluted on the skin. Cruz Hemp CBD Jojoba oil is an excellent carrier oil for blending any of the above essential oils for skincare. It is well suited for most skin types, as it is hypoallergenic, non-greasy, non-comedogenic, and full of vitamins and minerals that support the growth of healthy skin. Cruz Hemp CBD carrier oil infused with 1200mg of pure CBD isolate works synergistically to bring balance to overall skin health.
A great addition to your sunspot topical solution is Pomegranate Seed oil. The bioflavonoids in Pomegranate Seed oil help protect your skin from sun damage and can also work as a natural SPF when used before sun exposure. It also has wonderful anti-aging properties to support and maintain healthy, vibrant skin. Blending pomegranate oil into your sunspot topical is excellent, for preventing cell and tissue damage due to oxidative stress.
