1: Best Face Oil For Anti-Ageing; Rosehip Oil
Rosehip oil is famous for extremely valid reasons. Pressed from the seeds of the wild rose bush it’s one of the only natural plant oils to contain instantly active anti-ageing vitamin A. Known to scientists as all-trans-retinoic acid – dermatologists prescribe it for anti-ageing.
Vitamin A sounds like 1 ingredient but actually it’s a family of actives. Some of these actives are instantly recognised by your skin. Others need to be converted or broken down to have anti-ageing benefits.
Fact: Vitamin A as all-trans-retinoic acid is the most well proven anti-ageing active in existence.
Pro-tip: cold pressed rosehip oil is best – it has the highest mix of anti-ageing vitamin A.
2: Best Face Oil For Anti-Ageing; Cacay Oil
It’s lesser known but no less potent. In fact some cacay oil makers create anti-ageing cacay oil with up to 3 times more vitamin A than rosehip oil.
Not only does cacay oil – which is most often made in Brazil – come with vitamin A, cacay oil also naturally contains high quantities of vitamin E and essential fatty acids.
Essential fatty acids are an anti-ageing necessity for your skin. They earn the nickname of essential because your skin can’t make them. Your skin also can’t be happy without them.
Tell-tale signs of essential fatty acid deficiency; dryness, dehydration, scaly or fine line prone skin.
3: Best Face Oil For Anti-Ageing; Buriti Oil
The best face oils for anti-ageing have a powerful combination of antioxidants. Buriti oil contains vitamin A, carotenoids – these are pro-vitamin A actives and natural vitamin E.
Did you know natural vitamin E is up to 50% more potent than synthetic vitamin E? Your body recognises 100% of natural vitamin E whereas it recognises and therefore can work with only a much smaller amount of synthetic vitamin E.
Vitamin E is a powerhouse antioxidant for skin because it can be continually regenerated by your skin. Vitamin E’s anti-ageing benefits last significantly longer than other anti-ageing antioxidants.
4: Best Face Oil For Anti-Ageing; Squalane Oil
A truly skin-similar oil. Squalene is a major ingredient of your skin’s natural barrier function. A skill which ensures your skin remains smooth, hydrated and calm. When skin becomes all of the opposite – textured, dehydrated and vibrantly red – your skin’s ageing rate gets accelerated.
Keeping your skin’s barrier function healthy is an enormously overlooked anti-ageing solution.
It doesn’t stop there: squalane oil is also actively anti-oxidant.
5: Best Face Oil For Anti-Ageing; Acai Fruit Oil
Packed with polyphenol antioxidants, acai fruit oil is ideal for anti-ageing. Polyphenols are immensely bioactive and many times more potent than classic vitamin based antioxidants.
Polyphenols can also help relieve skin stress – a major cause of skin ageing. Science calls it inflammageing. Invisible to the naked eye, persistent, chronic inflammation. Even a lack of sleep can cause this type of skin stress. Find acai oil in an anti-ageing face oil to help you fight it.
