No one ever wants their skin to experience the signs of aging, but it’s a fact of life and it’s something we definitely have to deal with as we get older. Just because our skin is going to lose some of its elasticity and youthful glow, doesn’t mean we have to learn to live with these changes.

As a matter of fact, certain essential oils are ideal to help fight back against the signs of aging skin. We’ve discovered five essential oils that can help eliminate the signs of aging quite effectively and we’d like to tell you how to use them below. Stick around to discover the truth.

1. Peppermint Essential Oil

Out of so many wonderful essential oils, peppermint is definitely one of our favorites as far as skin health is concerned. You can mix this essential oil with lotions, body washes, shampoo, and even massage oils cool your skin and make it look youthful and beautiful again.

It’s also excellent for your scalp because it can kill lice and dandruff, which nobody obviously wants to live with. Finally, peppermint oil helps your skin secrete natural beneficial oils, which will prevent acne and other unwanted skin conditions.

Clary sage oil is particularly magnificent for aging skin for a wide variety of reasons.

For starters, it can help to eliminate eye bags, dark circles, and large pores under your eyes. So if you use this remedy regularly, you will not look tired and rundown all the time.

It’s also great because it has skin rejuvenation properties. When you regularly apply it to the skin on your face, you will begin to look younger, less saggy, have clear eyes, and feel much better about yourself.

Mix a drop of clary sage oil with a drop of geranium oil and a tablespoon of coconut oil. Combine the ingredients together and apply them to your face while gently massaging the solution in a circular direction for about two minutes.

3. Rose Essential Oil

Rose essential oil is also a favorite of ours as far as combating the signs of aging skin is concerned. We love it for two reasons.

First, it’s wonderful because it has the ability to improve blood flow. By having more blood flow through your skin, it will naturally look more youthful and beautiful. Since the additional blood flow creates more oxygen in the skin, your complexion will have a pinkish and youthful glow.

Second, this essential oil can also improve skin elasticity. It does so by helping maintain collagen within the skin. So your skin is going to look more supple and smoother all the time.

To make the most of this essential oil, mix three drops of rose essential oil with a tablespoon of rosehip seed oil. This mixture works as a daily moisturizer so apply it to your skin liberally to remove dark spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

4. Sandalwood Essential Oil

This is an excellent option for aging skin because it contains rejuvenation properties and makes skin look radiant and youthful. Your sagging skin will begin to disappear and your cheeks and the skin around your eyes will also become much tighter.

Mix three drops of sandalwood oil with a tablespoon of pomegranate seed oil. This is a very effective face serum, so apply it in the morning and at night and you can even use it as a daily moisturizer.

5. Argan Essential Oil

This is a fantastic essential oil as far as certain skin conditions are concerned. It can eliminate the signs of aging as well as skin dryness. Your skin will no longer feel scratchy and dry after you begin using it, because instead it will start to feel smooth and supple once again.

For the best benefits, mix two drops of geranium essential oil with a tablespoon of argan oil. Rub five drops of the solution on your face or you can even mix it with your daily moisturizer to receive even greater benefits.

Final Thoughts

It’s no longer necessary to look and feel older than you should. Using essential oils to restore youthful skin is the best way to look and feel younger again. So use these five recommendations daily to achieve stunning results.
