Essential oils for wrinkles

As the skin grows older, wrinkles occur, due to the fact that the inner layer (or dermis) of the skin, loses its elasticity. It behaves like an elastic band. A new band springs back into place after being stretched, but an old one stays stretched instead of returning to its original size.

As the skin grows older, wrinkles occur, due to the fact that the inner layer (or dermis) of the skin, loses its elasticity. It behaves like an elastic band. A new band springs back into place after being stretched, but an old one stays stretched instead of returning to its original size.

Same thing for skin, a young skin which is stretched, such as in smiling, quickly goes back to its original smooth state, but not as the dermis ages.

Essential oils for wrinkles

Regular massage with essential oils diluted in rich carrier oil can help to reduce wrinkling, although the best time to apply such treatment would be, ideally, before any wrinkles have formed. It is indeed easier to maintain elasticity of skin (and therefore postpone appearance of wrinkles) than repair a skin with wrinkles.

One of the best essential oils for wrinkles is called Elemi, coming from a small tree from the Philippines. It has rejuvenating properties that help reducing wrinkles and improve skin tone. It has also been found to boost cells turnover (production of new cells to replace the older one).

Others very interesting essential oils are Ajowan, Frankincense and Myrtle. They all have been used in skin care for thousands of years. In some instances they may even reduce existing wrinkling, but it does certainly help to prevent further wrinkles forming. Finally, Neroli essential oil is also particularly valuable in that it stimulates the body to produce healthy new cells, and this can help to keep the skin looking smooth by delaying the aging process in the layers of connective tissue.

Massage stimulates the local circulation, and this ensures good supplies of oxygen to the blood vessels in the inner layers of skin. The cells in the inner skin need oxygen for the health and growth, as does every cell in the body. Massage directly on the face needs to be gentle.

You may wonder why the treatment only focuses on the inner layers (dermis) of the skin, and not the outer layer (epidermis). This is due to the fact that the cells of outer layer are already dead, so they will not react to any treatment.

Good combination of oils:

  • Elemi + Ajowan
  • Elemi + Myrtle
  • Frankincense + Neroli

Diluted in a carrier oil. Sweet almond is the most suitable for wrinkles (it helps reduce dryness of the skin, which is good as most mature skins lack moisture), but argan oil can be a good alternative too.
