Have you seen any beauty product labeled as “dry oil”? To be very honest you are not alone. How can something liquid or conditioning be dry? What is the difference between dry and wet oils? And very importantly, how can you use it? Suppose you notice oils marketed as the “dry body oil”, here is what that means for the hair, skin, and nails.
Potential advantages of dry oil:
- Higher collagen production. It is seen that avocado oil will increase production of the collagen (collagen synthesis) & reduce inflammation.
- Moisturizes skin. Majority of the dry oils, like safflower and sunflower, have linoleic acid. The fatty acid will keep your skin well-moisturized just by helping it to maintain the water permeability barrier.
- Helps to fight aging signs. Research suggests that higher antioxidants in sesame oil will help to decrease oxidative stress of your skin. In theory, it can help to protect your skin and hair from the premature aging.
- Improves cracked and dry skin. Applying avocado dry oil is the best way to moisturize damaged, dry, and chapped skin.
- Decrease sun damage. The rosehip oil has huge amounts of the antioxidants that will protect your skin and hair from damage that is caused by sun’s ultraviolet rays.
If you are just starting to use in face oils, you must consider dry oils as the starter pack. The moisturizing oils will sink in fast as well as feel weightless—thus you will not sport any slick skin.
