Hey Gorgeous, These Are the 5 Best Oils for Your Beauty Routine

When it comes to the world of beauty, it seems as if there is always a new product to try or an “it” brand to discover. And while exploring the latest beauty trends and face oils may be fun, it can also be costly and overwhelming to figure out the best oils to incorporate into your beauty routine.

Luckily, achieving healthier hair or hydrated cuticles may be easier than you think!


The 5 Best Oils For Your Beauty Routine:

If you’re a lover of natural beauty, these are the five best oils to stock up on and add to your beauty routine.

30 Simple AF Beauty Hacks to Transform Your Daily Routine

1. Coconut Oil

Primarily made up of medium-chain fatty acids, coconut oil is known for being both gentle and moisturizing. So it should come as no surprise that it is celebrated for its many beauty benefits.

Let’s start with the teeth. Did you know that when combined with baking soda, this superstar product can help to whiten your smile? That’s not all though. Coconut oil is also regularly used as a body lotion, natural skincare, makeup remover and a reparative hair mask.

Glowing skin, healthier hair and a brighter smile? No wonder coconut oil is one of the best oils for a beauty routine.

Bonus! You can add coconut oil to your dental routine with oil pulling! Here are 5 Benefits of Oil Pulling (Plus Easy Instructions to Try It at Home!)

2. Jojoba Oil

Do you struggle with dry or chapped lips? If so, you’re not alone. Luckily, jojoba oil is here to help. Jojoba oil, which is derived from the seed of the jojoba plant (simmondsia chinensis), is a natural emollient – meaning it is known to provide deep hydration.

When combined with other ingredients like a teaspoon of raw sugar, jojoba oil can be used within your beauty routine to gently exfoliate the lips and body. Similarly, it has been said that applying this topically to the scalp may help to alleviate dandruff.

Being that jojoba oil is both antifungal and anti-inflammatory, it is also often reached for when it comes to natural skin repair. This includes cuticle oil, topical sunburn relief, and even, a remedy for pesky cold sores.

3. Rosemary Oil

If natural hair growth is at the heart of your beauty routine, you’re going to definitely want to invest in a high quality rosemary oil.

When combined with a carrier oil (ex. coconut, jojoba, castor or argan), or poured directly into your shampoo, rosemary oil is said to stimulate the scalp for improved hair growth and (much like jojoba oil) alleviate dandruff. For that reason, this is certainly one of the best oils for your beauty routine!


4. Castor Oil

We simply cannot talk about the best oils to incorporate into your beauty routine without mentioning the one and only castor oil.

Celebrated in Indian culture for its incredible benefits, castor oil is used for a variety of health and beauty concerns. Namely, however, it is considered a staple in the practice of “hair oiling,” a centuries old tradition in India that involves a combination of powerful oils and stimulating scalp massage.

The result is, of course, shinier, healthier-looking hair.

Sometimes the answer to your most basic beauty concerns lies in your kitchen pantry.

While there is little academic research to support the effectiveness of castor oil for hair growth, anecdotal evidence certainly points to its powers – especially as it pertains to eyelashes.

Rich with omega-6 fatty acids, castor oil tends to be thicker than other oils. For that reason, it is recommended users apply it to their lashes and brows with a disposable spoolie.

If you’re hoping to give life to your gorgeous brows or length to your lashes, it is also important that you invest in a high-quality, USDA certified-organic version, to protect the health of your eyes.

5. Argan Oil

Loaded with fats and antioxidants like vitamin E, argan oil is a must-have in your beauty routine.

Much like many of the other oils on this list, argan oil is specifically great for use on the hair. Its lightweight consistency makes it ideal for fighting frizz and preventing damage without weighing down your strands. This is especially helpful for those with finer hair. However, healthy hair is far from all this oil is good for.

In fact, the essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants found in argan oil make it especially great for hydrating your skin, cuticles and nails. So whether you’re looking for a face glow or natural products to achieve a gorgeous at-home manicure, you may want to stock up.
