Are you one of those people who are getting minor to serious allergic reactions from over-the-counter anti-aging creams? Well, you are not alone. In fact, the problem is so prevalent that cosmetic companies have begun to use alternative ingredients in these products. Now they are using essential oils in their skincare and hair care products. These enhanced products actually provide all the benefits of the best hair and skincare products and at the same time provide the advantages of aromatherapy oils. And you will be surprised to know that these products have actually begun showing wonderful benefits for people already!
Of course, for any skincare or hair care product to work well, you need to understand your skin and hair type. Different essential oils from different plants provide different therapeutic benefits. So, you need to know your particular skin and hair type to find the perfect ingredient for you. If you want to moisturize your skin, you probably just need to add the right carrier oil to a specific essential oil. And you have the perfect product for your skin and hair type. Now that you have the combined mixture, you just need to massage it into your skin or hair.
If you have sensitive skin or suffer from allergies, these aromatherapy based skin and hair products may cause a few problems for you. It doesn’t matter whether you make these products at home, or you buy it from the store. If you have reaction, just stop using it right away. Just like we test out other skincare and hair care products, it may be a good idea to test these products out on a small area on your skin. This way you can check if they cause any bad reaction. And, of course, always remember that if you do have a reaction, don’t ignore it or try treating it at home. Consult a health care specialist.
You can find many essential oils available in the market these days. Lavender, rose, or chamomile work great for normal skin. Chamomile is also good for people who have dry or sensitive skin or have skin that is prone to acne or eczema. And if you think that it is difficult to use these oils, it is so not true! All you need is to add just a few drops of the essential oil to your skincare or healthcare products and enjoy the results!
