Grapeseed oil helps tighten and tone the skin by reducing inflammation, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and protecting against free radicals.
As a popular up-and-coming ingredient in skincare, grapeseed oil contains powerful antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids, and vitamin E. As a nutrient powerhouse, it helps with toning the skin, minimizing pores, and reducing the risk of breakouts.
Here’s why it is a must for your daily skincare routine.
What is grapeseed oil?
Grapeseed oil is extracted from the seeds of wine grapes. It’s actually a byproduct of the wine industry (yes, another glass of red can be indirectly good for your skin!). While there are different techniques of extracting it, cold-pressed and expeller-pressed oil are best for skincare purposes.
Although grapeseed oil is relatively new in the United States, it is considered a traditional European remedy and has been used for a wide range of diseases and cardiovascular conditions.
When it comes to your skin, pure grapeseed oil can be used as a moisturizer or a spot treatment. Alternatively, you can mix a few drops of it into your favorite skincare products to enjoy its benefits.
Unlike coconut oil and rosehip oil, which are only appropriate for specific skin types, grapeseed oil is lightweight and non-comedogenic, meaning it does not block pores. It is suitable for most skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Benefits of Grapeseed Oil
Grapeseed oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial properties. Combine these with long-chain fatty acids and vitamin E, and you have a popular skincare ingredient that can do it all.
Because of its antimicrobial properties, many people use it to treat acne and other skin conditions. Grapeseed extract can also help to remove bacteria by penetrating deep into your pores, cleaning and toning your skin to help you achieve a more even texture.
Thanks to powerful antioxidants, grapeseed oil can help to even out skin tone and protect your delicate skin from environmental damage and UV rays. Plus, it makes the skin smoother, softer, and more elastic.
How to Use Grapeseed Oil in Your Skincare Routine
Grapeseed oil is lightweight and absorbs quickly, which makes adding it to your skincare routine convenient and easy. It is a highly versatile ingredient—you can use it alone, mix it with your favorite moisturizers, or even use it as a carrier oil.
If you’re not sure where to start, face masks infused with grapeseed oil are a great way to address a variety of skincare concerns—from fighting acne to tightening the skin.
Oily skin? No problem. Face masks with grapeseed oil penetrate the skin quickly and deeply, and don’t leave your skin feeling oily. As a result, they are ideal for all skin types—oily, dry, and anywhere in between.
