4. Tamanu Oil (Foraha Oil)

Tamanu oil is extremely soothing and can give tremendous relief from numerous skin irritations, such as sunburns, inflammation, eczema, and rashes. This oil contains powerful compounds that are proven to both restore as well as regenerate skin tissue. This oil is perfect for breakouts as it has antimicrobial compounds and plenty of antioxidants.

 

5. Moringa Oil

This is a fairly new oil to Americans but it’s been used by the ancient Egyptians and Hindus since about 2000 BC! This oil has a very high level of antioxidants, which protects you skin from premature aging and sun damage. Moringa oil also has a fatty acid profile that can seriously fight the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lightens your skin tone, and will deeply moisturize your skin. This is perhaps the perfect oil for those with dry skin and those with more mature skin.

 

6. Argan Oil

Also called Moroccan oil, argan oil has become very popular lately as women discover its ability to nourish and repair damaged hair.  If your hair is normal to slightly dry or if it tends to get frizzy, argan oil is perfect for you. Same with your skin, if you have normal to slightly dry skin, this oil should be your choice.
