Searching for a natural anti-ageing skincare regime for mature skin?
When it comes to promoting healthier, younger-looking skin, essential oils are one of the best ingredients for natural skincare. Different essential oils have different properties, with some oils being renowned for their anti-ageing benefits.
From moisturizing and nourishing down to reducing fine lines and scarring, we wanted to share some of our favourite anti-ageing skincare remedies for mature skin below. Keep reading for our guide on which essential oils are best suited for anti-ageing, and our top tips on how to use them!
Which essential oils are best for anti-ageing natural skincare?
Different essential oils have different properties. It’s important to choose the right oils to achieve the best results when it comes to mature skin.
The most popular anti-ageing essential oils for mature skin include:
- Frankincense – a powerful antioxidant that can prevent premature ageing, improve the appearance of pores, and promote skin cell growth
- Geranium – once used by the ancient Egyptians, this oil is ideal for tightening the skin and retaining moisture
- Lavender – known for containing anti-oxidant properties that rejuvenate the skin
- Lemon – high in Vitamin C, known for reducing excess sebum and fine lines
- Sandalwood – high in sesquiterpene, a hormone known to boost skin regeneration
- Ylang Ylang – known for toning the skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles
- Clary Sage – known for tightening pores and preventing premature wrinkles
You can create your very own anti-ageing skincare regime using a mix of these essential oils combined with other natural ingredients. Don’t forget, it’s important to dilute your essential oils with a carrier oil like jojoba oil for topical application.
Now that you know which essential oils are best suited for mature skin, how can you implement them into your daily skincare routine? Keep reading for some DIY remedies to get you started.
DIY anti-ageing natural face oil
A nourishing face oil can have powerful benefits for mature, ageing skin. You can create a natural face oil by using a ratio of 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil to 2 drops essential oils. Store your concoction in a glass drop bottle and massage 4-5 drops gently into the fae each night after cleansing. For best results, pair with a natural cleanser (like our NATTo skincare range.)
DIY anti-ageing natural face mask
Take some time to unwind each week with a nourishing, anti-ageing face mask. To create a natural mask, combine 1 tablespoon of raw honey with 3 tablespoons organic yoghurt and 3 drops of your chosen oil. After cleansing, apply the mask and leave for up to 15 minutes before washing gently with a warm face cloth.
DIY anti-ageing eye cream
Eye creams are ideal for smoothing wrinkles and reducing dark circles and under-eye bags. You can create a nourishing DIY eye cream using essential oils and natural ingredients.
Remember, for an eye cream, you’ll want to use soothing oils to prevent irritation. Simply mix 2 tablespoons of shea butter with 1 teaspoon raw honey, then 2 drops each of Frankincense, Geranium and Lavender. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place, and apply under each eye before bed.
