Sunflower oil is highly absorbent and offers several skin benefits for all skin types, including dry, oily, normal, and even acne-prone skin. Sunflower oil is organic and free from harmful chemicals that ensure extra care for your skin. 

Incorporating sunflower oil in your beauty regime can give you beautiful skin. Take a look at its five benefits:

Prevents Signs Of Ageing

Prevents Signs Of Ageing

Sunflower oil is an excellent source of vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can shield your skin from free radicals and adverse effects of the sun, including premature ageing and wrinkles.

Improves Skin Hydration

Improves Skin Hydration

Sunflower oil is a natural moisturiser. It has the ability to retain moisture, which makes it beneficial for dry skin. It is effective in improving skin hydration and maintaining the integrity of the skin’s outer layer.

Improves Symptoms Of Eczema

Eczema is a skin condition that causes itchy, inflamed, cracked, and rough skin. 

Using sunflower oil can be an effective natural treatment for eczema symptoms. According to Medical News Today, sunflower oil offers a number of skin benefits. It acts as an anti-itch, creates a protective barrier, and has anti-inflammatory properties that could help improve the symptoms of eczema.

Strengthens Skin's Barrier

Sunflower oil is rich in linoleic acid, which helps in maintaining the skin’s natural barrier and supports its ability to retain moisture. 

According to a study done in 2013, sunflower oil is effective in maintaining the strength of the skin’s natural barrier. It is even better than olive oil.

Heals Wounds Faster

Sunflower oil helps wounds heal more quickly. This may be because sunflower oil contains oleic acid, which is beneficial for the treatment of wounds.

A study found that open wounds heal faster after applying sunflower oil to them. However, more study on this is required.

How To Use Sunflower Oil?

For the best results, use organic and cold-pressed sunflower oil. You can use it to moisturise or for massage.

Just pour a small amount of oil onto your palm and gently massage it into the skin until it is fully absorbed. You can also add a small amount of any essential oil to it for added skin benefits.

Disclaimer: Those who are allergic to sunflower seeds should avoid sunflower oil.
