You don’t have to use toxic chemical face creams, serums, scrubs, masks, or go as far as plastic surgery to obtain a youthful, wrinkle-free face. In my opinion, these types of products and treatments will only provide temporary results, and eventually damage your skin and cause it to age at a faster rate.

Which is why, I think, a natural approach to fighting wrinkles is a smart decision. And, essential oils are an excellent way to prevent wrinkles and keep your face looking youthful.

If you skip down below, you’ll see a list of various anti aging essential oils. But, before you do so, please read the next couple of paragraphs. I briefly explain some of the critical factors involved in promoting and supporting healthy skin.

Part of feeling young is also looking young. If you look young, then most likely you’ll feel young too. They go hand in hand, in my opinion anyway.

It’s important to realize that what you eat and the things you put into and onto your body will reflect in the quality and appearance of your skin. So, if you want to have a younger looking face, then you have to feed your skin from the inside out, and the outside in.

In other words, your diet needs to provide your skin with the proper nutrition it needs to be healthy and look youthful. And for this, I recommend a whole food, plant based, mineral rich diet … high in healthy fats and low in sugar. A diet like this will feed your skin from the inside out. You may want to check out one of my previous posts, “ Delicious Salad for Healthy Glowing Skin.” I discuss essential vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats for supporting healthy skin.

Now, to feed your skin from the outside in, I always suggest the use of raw and organic plant based options like coconut oil, cacao butter, extra virgin olive oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, etc. These types of fats/oils will moisturize and nourish your skin. So, there’s no need to clog your skin, and pollute your body with store bought lotions and creams. Which really isn’t a good idea since your skin is the largest detoxification organ of the body!

Your body doesn’t like toxic, synthetic chemical substances, or materials. In general, the more naturally you live your life the better you will look and feel. Which is why, understanding and implementing the above concepts will only enhance the effectiveness of the anti aging essential oils listed below.

How to Use these Anti Aging Essential Oils

Add 1-2 drops to a little bit of coconut oil or jojoba oil (any oil of your choice), and rub together in the palms of your hands. Massage into face, neck, and chest. In my experience, coconut and jojoba oil make great face moisturizers because they’re lightweight, and don’t make your face look greasy.

You can also prepare a facial steam cleanse, and use one or more of the anti aging essential oils of your choice.

And, you don’t have to limit the benefits of these anti aging essential oils to your your face only. They can also be used all over your entire body.

Again, you can add a couple drops of essential oils to the oil of your choice, and rub all over your body. If you enjoy taking baths, try adding a couple of drops to your next bath.

These are just some ideas to get you started. Be creative!

To a Younger You!
