BEAUTY SECRETS OF SUNFLOWER OILGurpreet Kaur
A quick query: What is your first thought about sunflower oil? If the first image that comes to your mind is a batch of fried pakoras, forget it. Let me rephrase that question.
What do you think are the benefits of sunflowers if you leave aside all those frying visuals? You might take some time even to think beyond the kitchen because we have always associated this flower with cooking. Blame it all on those commercials and those fields of sunflowers.
But there is more to sunflower oil than its role in the kitchen, you know? For ages, the oil from these flowers has been one of the ingredients for beauty treatments. Unknown to many of us, this oil, collected by pressing the seeds, can be applied to the face as a moisturiser or pre-cleanser or makeup remover.
Do you have any idea what qualifies sunflower oil as a beauty enhancer? For the manufacturers of beauty products, this oil is indeed a miracle ingredient. Because, sunflower oil is known to hydrate the skin, clean the pores, balance skin tone and help control the onset of ageing. Yes, that is some hard work.
What makes sunflower oil a catch is that is a treasure-trove of vitamins. Name it, and you have it. The abundance of Vitamins A, C, E, D and K means you have the protection of antioxidants against environmental factors and pollutants. And, that age will have a tough time leaving wrinkles and lines on your face. Sunflower oil has a soothing effect on the skin, and it works well for all types of skin and repairs damage, redness and other irritations.
If you have sensitive skin, you can use this oil without any worry. It will soothe and moisturises, and you can be assured of smooth skin without any irritations. It is very gentle on the skin as it calms and hydrates and nourishes.
THE SUNFLOWER SECRET
Because of all these benefits, sunflower oil has become a key ingredient of several Soilscents products. Since sunflower oil is rich in Linoleic acid that adds softening and nourishing qualities to the skin, it has been used well as part of moisturisers and body butter by Soilscents.
The body butter is rich with cocoa butter, shea butter and mango butter has sunflower oil too to turn it into a magic lotion that brings radiance to dry and dull skin.
The body butter can be applied directly to your skin. Use it liberally and gently massage it in till it is completely absorbed. Though it can be used at any time, it works extremely well as a night cream. So, if you are in the mood to pamper yourself with a beauty care ritual, apply this butter for an effective overnight moisturising treatment.
This scrub is a cocktail of essential oils and it helps bring a radiant glow to the face. It has Jojoba beads which remove dead cells and toxins from your face while oils including sunflower oil soothe and calm the skin. This exfoliating combination works as a face mask too.
So, after using these products, sunflower oil is definitely going to bring you some visuals other than those fried goodies.
