5 Oils That Promote a Healthy Lifestyle! + a BONUS BEAUTY HACK!

  • Argan oil can technically be used all over a person’s body–as a deep conditioner (used in conjunction with another conditioner just to add some extra umph), a skin moisturizer & as a hair oil. 
Using argan oil as an everyday moisturizer may not be the best for those of us with oily, acne-prone skin, as it will probably just make your face even more oily. But, if you have naturally dry skin, argan oil may be the perfect choice for you.

  • Everyone can use this as a hair oil. Argan oil is especially good for those stubborn dry patches we get on our scalps, & it can also be good for stimulating hair growth. I usually massage about 2 drops of the oil into my scalp every night.

    ADDITIONAL USES | frizz tamer, heel softener (before you go to sleep, apply argan oil on your feet & put a pair of socks on-you’ll have soft feet when you wake up!)

  • Coconuts are packed with protein, vitamin E, & fatty acids that can be easily absorbed into the skin. The uses for it are infinite. You can use it as a body & hair moisturizer, lip balm, cuticle softener, makeup remover, etc. (seriously, the list goes on & on).
The coconut oil I use comes in solid form, & I like to apply it as a body moisturizer. Right after I get out of the shower, I take a quarter-sized amount & rub it in my palms to get it into a softer form. Then, I just apply it all over.

  • When used in your hair, coconut oil adds moisture and shine. Maintaining healthy edges is important to me, and thankfully, coconut oil helps me in doing just that. I apply the product right before I go to bed, and it moisturizes my edges overnight, while laying them down in the process.

    ADDITIONAL USES | cooking oil, sunscreen, hair mask, massage oil, prevents stretch marks, soothes eczema

  • I know I said certain oils aren’t very good for people with naturally oily skin, but jojoba oil is the one exception. It's a liquid wax that's a lot closer to the oils found in human skin. With that being said, when you put jojoba oil on your face, it sort of tricks the skin into thinking that it already has enough moisture & the skin stops producing extra oil. The product does not clog your pores at all–instead, it lets your skin breathe, making it one of the best oils for acne-prone skin.

  • Many people also use Jojoba oil as a makeup remover, but I find that coconut oil does a better job with that.

    ADDITIONAL USES | Shaving prep & aftershave, lip balm, body moisturizer, cuticle oil

  • Sesame oil comes from sesame seeds (obviously), & it happens to be one of the more lighter oils out there. It dates back to various ancient civilizations & it’s said to have been one of the most sought-after oils, specifically for medicinal uses. Today, this nutritious oil is commonly used as a hot oil treatment, as a massage oil, & as a facial moisturizer.

  • Sesame seeds/oil contains zinc, which can boost collagen production, a process that increases the elasticity & smoothness of your skin. Be sure that you don’t have a sesame seed allergy, though!

    ADDITIONAL USES | sunscreen, laxative (I personally have not tried this), used to promote hair growth

  • Tea tree oil has tons of uses, but I think it’s best used as a spot treatment because it has natural antibacterial & healing properties that can prove to be really helpful when dealing with stubborn blemishes. There are tea-tree-based cleansers, toners, exfoliators, & creams out there–you name it, they make it. But I personally think using all of those products in conjunction might be a bit much. So, I started out using it as just a basic spot treatment.

  • Use a Q-tip or a cotton ball & apply the oil directly onto the pimple. If your skin tends to get dry, dilute the oil with a little bit of water before using it. The oil actually penetrates the skin & unclogs your pores, which allows for the swelling of the pimple to go down significantly.

    ADDITIONAL USES | wart treatment, antiseptic for small cuts, soothes sunburn & insect bites

  • Mix a palm-full of organic coconut oil, raw honey, & your favorite ALL-NATURAL conditioner together. Massage into your hair from root to tip, & put on a plastic cap. Let it sit for a minimum of 15mins (can keep it in hair for as long as 3 hours). Rinse it out, style your hair as you normally would, & you’ll see that your hair will be nourished, feel soft, & be full of luster. I do this at least once every 2 weeks.
