Blending Carrier Oils in DIY skincare

One of the many beauties and advantages of DIY skin and hair care is the ability to experiment and try new and totally different things. Blending oils is not only fun, it’s also very beneficial to to your beauty regimen. If you blend pure carrier oils, you could benefit from the collective properties of the oils. Before you jump on the bandwagon, you have to know which oils work best together and how you can combine them most effectively and efficiently. A common mistake some people make is blending oils that do not work together. Some oils are also very thick to be properly blended and fully incorporated together. Examples include castor oil, both black castor and ordinary castor oil. Pumpkin seed oil, black cumin seed oil are also some good examples. While these oils have their own outstanding benefits, they cannot be blended seamlessly with other oils except in whipped hair and body butters.

Some people like to use light and easy to blend oils in their beauty regimen for cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. Oils that are easy to blend are also highly nourishing to the skin because of how deep they can easily penetrate the skin layers thereby. In this post, I will like to highlight some of the oils I use in my beauty regimen. Many expensive high end beauty products carry these oils in tiny amounts in their face creams and serums but you can simply use them directly on the skin for excellent results. kukui nut oil, Sea buckthorn oil and Buriti oil are known for superior anti-aging and skin nourishing properties. They are extremely light and easily blend with other oils.

My beauty regimen involve adding and blending these three oils together and using my mix for oil cleansing on my face and neck. I also apply my mix at night for deep overnight softening and hydration of my skin. I highly recommend these oils as the results are absolutely amazing. Apart from their moisturizing properties, Sea buckthorn oil and Buriti oil are highly pigmented oils that prevent hyperpigmentation, scarring and uneven skin tone. These three oils make a blend that works well for moisture, hydration and even skin tone. Let us know if you make this wonderful blend. Get your oils here:
