Grape seed oil is ideal when it comes to treating problems of the skin. Its easy, thin texture is easily absorbable by the skin and does not leave any marks. This type of oil can be utilized in cosmetics because it contains various acids beneficial to the skin cells: oleic, linoleic, palmitic and stearic.
The skin absorbs it easily, and the oil softens and stretches it.
For dry, cold-sensitive skin
Ten minutes after taking a hot bath, massage your body, especially the limbs, with grape seed oil. The treatment should be applied for a duration of 6 consecutive weeks, especially during the cold season.
For protecting, hydrating and impeding the formation of wrinkles, massage your cheeks, forehead, throat and cheek bones with grape seed oil.
For extremely dry complexion
Mix one teaspoon of grape seed oil with 1 teaspoon of avocado oil and apply it after washing your face, massaging the area continuously for about 5 minutes, starting from the throat and ending with the forehead.
For aging skin
After taking a bath, massage the body with grape seed oil. Make sure to do this regularly. Grape seed oil penetrates the epidermis instantly and it also reduces the loss of water from the skin so that it can regain its elasticity.
For a complexion predisposed to acne
After cleaning your face, apply a few drops on the tip of your fingers; after that, massage the skin in circular motions. If the area shows signs of acne eruptions, avoid it, because grape seed oil can cause irritations of the skin.
Depending on which area you want to focus on, mix a few teaspoons (for the face) or tablespoons (for the body) of grape seed oil with 1 cup of brown sugar. Apply it on the face or body in circular motions, at least 2 times per week.
For cellulitis, prepare a mixture of 40 g of salt, 1 liter of fresh lemon juice and 2 to 3 teaspoons of grape seed oil. Apply the mixture on the affected zones, massaging the areas in circular motions. Use gloves for this.
For the hair
Grape seed oil keeps the scalp healthy and hydrates the hair. It also reduces the risk of hair loss by enhancing the circulation and it even prevents the formation of dandruff.
Using 4 to 5 teaspoons of grape seed oil and a little bit of warm water, make a mask. After shampooing your hair, apply the mask on the wet hair. Leave it there for 15 minutes. After that, rinse the hair with lukewarm water.
Externally, you should avoid using grape seed oil on portions of thick, fat skin, because it can lead to various types of infections and allergic reactions. Consult a medical specialist before applying any of the treatments mentioned in this article to avoid any side effects. Do not use them before doing the necessary research.
