Face Cream Vs. Essential Oils: The Best Ways to Slow Signs of Aging

People are always looking for ways they can slow down the signs of aging. While we cannot stop aging, we can slow it down and sometimes, with the right product, we can even reverse some of the damage that age has done to our bodies. For many people, the trouble is simply finding the perfect product that will help reverse those signs of aging. However, finding the right product is actually not as hard as we often think. If you are looking for some great products that are easy to use, products that are great for aging skin, then two of your best options are essential oils and face creams.

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are oils that have been derived from plants. They can come from the leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, or any other part of the plant. More specifically, they are aromatic volatile compounds — which means they have a very high vapor pressure. These oils are often derived from what gives the plant its scent and derived from what gives the plant its healing properties. They are all-natural and are often used in beauty products, for therapeutic purposes, and for aromatic pleasure.

There are several different ways to use essential oils. You can use them as a toner, by applying an oil directly to your face. You can add them to your bath water to get the benefits of the scent as well as the healing benefits they can give to the skin. You can use them in an oil diffuser. You can even add them to another lotion to put on your skin. In all of these cases, you only need to use a little bit because the oils are very strong. And usually it is recommended that you mix essential oils with a carrier oil, such as jojoba or coconut oil — because they are so potent.

To receive benefit to your skin from essential oils, you will want to use them in a lotion, place them in a bath, or place them directly on the skin — and not use them in an oil diffuser. Oil diffusers are principally used for aromatherapy, for aromatic pleasure, or for cleaning and disinfecting the air.

What Are the Benefits of Using Essential Oils?

Many people prefer to use essential oils for skin care because they are lighter than most face creams and they do not weigh down your skin. The huge, unreadable lists of artificial and chemical ingredients often make skin care products an unpopular choice. Essential oils, on the other hand, are all-natural products, made without any added ingredients. They have a variety of uses. But for slowing the effects of aging, there are some specific oils that you should consider trying because each oil has its own specific set of benefits.

Essential oils that are know to slow the effects of aging include lavender, rose, neroli, carrot seed, and jasmine. Each of these oils can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your skin when used on a daily basis. Some of these oils, such as jasmine, actually strengthen the elasticity of your skin to reverse the signs of aging, instead of simply slowing down aging or reducing its appearance. These are the most commonly used essential oils for healing skin and reducing signs of aging, but that does not mean that there are not others that you can use. You should do your research to see what other options you may have.

What Is Face Cream?

Face creams are highly used today. Face cream is thicker than lotion. There are many different types of face creams available on the market. You can choose one that you put on at night before you go to bed. You can also choose one that you put on in the morning as part of your makeup routine. Most face creams are used only once per day. However, many people use one at night or one during the day for maximum hydration, although this is not a requirement.

To use face cream correctly, you need to follow the right steps. You should always apply your face cream to a clean face so you can get the most benefits from it. Also, while it is commonly put on using a spreading motion, it is healthier to pat it onto your skin instead. If you are wondering what direction you should be patting it on, you should apply it in an upwards motion. If you apply it while pulling your skin down, you are only helping your skin age. Naturally, skin will begin to sag downwards over time so you should apply upwards to counteract that motion. Never pull your skin in a downwards motion. Once you are done putting it on, you should allow some time for it to soak into your skin before doing anything else to your skin, such as applying your makeup or lying down to go to sleep.

What Are the Benefits of Face Cream?

Face creams cannot change your skin at the cellular level. This means that they will not increase the production of collagen. While they cannot function that way, they do have many other benefits. One of the biggest benefit is that face creams keep your skin hydrated when used on a regular basis. Face creams will replenish the natural moisture in the skin, the moisture needed for the upper layers of the skin. They help to ensure that the barrier function of the skin is working as well as possible. When you use a face cream, you will notice an immediate feeling of being hydrated. This does not last long but if you use it daily, then you will notice the moisturizing effect lasting a little longer. Face cream also softens skin and makes it more elastic. Your skin needs to be continually hydrated, softened, and strengthened to maintain younger looking skin. Not only will face cream provide you with these benefits but it can also help protect your skin from the elements. If you choose one with an SPF, you will also enjoy protection from the sun. All of these benefits will leave you with younger looking skin. So, using a face cream daily can have a huge impact on the look of your skin. In fact, you should look for face creams that have anti-aging effects written on the label.

Should I Use Essential Oils or Face Creams?

Either essential oils or face creams are great for slowing down the signs of aging. The one that you choose really depends on your personal preferences. You can try out different products to see what works best for you. One thing is certain, however, using a face cream or an essential oil will help you achieve the results you are looking for.
