6. Coconut Oil

This super luscious coconut oil is loaded with vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, which makes this oil an excellent carrier oil for skin healing. Comprised of mainly medium chain triglyceride lauric acid, coconut oil is well-known to be one of the healthiest oils for the skin (and the body when you consume it!) Coconut oil will clear up acne like magic while for those with more mature skin, it can help reduce the signs of aging, can help to fade stretch marks, while it strengthens the epidermis. Coconut oil has a natural SPF of about 4, so it’s great for a mild sunscreen that will protect your skin from sun damage naturally, with no harmful chemicals.

 

7. Lemon Oil

Although the smell of this might remind you of furniture polish, lemon oil can help to lighten age spots or dark spots while it also preventing and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

8. Avocado Oil

Although avocado oil is a very thick oil, it is one of the healthiest oils for the skin. You might not want to use it on your face, but since avocado oil is super rich with vitamins E and A, as well as collagen improving plant sterolins, you might want to consider using this oil everywhere else!
