Benefits, Uses And Properties:
Hazelnut Oil acts as an excellent emollient and moisturizer because it has a number of essential fatty acids such as linoleic acid, which can rehydrate the skin. So, this Oil is extensively used in treating dry skin. Moreover, this Oil is very light and easily gets absorbed into the skin. It also doesn't have any side effects and so it is used in many skin care products. Apart from this, the antibacterial and astringent properties prevent the excessive secretion of skin Oil that results in acne, thus maintaining soft skin.
Hazelnut Oil can also be separately mixed with creams and lotions and applied to the body.
This Oil is suitable for all and nourishes all types of skin. It is particularly good for sensitive skin. This Oil is best suited for those with Oily skin as the moisturizing property of hazelnut keeps the skin free from excessive secretions. Also, the astringent properties in the Oil tightens the pores and so limits the Oil secretions, thus helping to maintain clean and clear skin. Just a drop or two of hazelnut Oil is enough to take care of your skin.
Hazelnut Oil can be used as sunscreen as it is able to filter all the harmful rays of the sun. Because of this most sunscreens contain hazelnut Oil. Another way to utilize the benefits of hazelnut Oil is to mix a drop of this Oil in any of your daily cream and lotion, which can then act as the best sun guard.
Like most of other carrier Oils, hazelnut Oil is also a rich source of vitamin E. The anti-oxidant properties of this vitamin helps in solving many of the problems associated with ageing. Free radicals cause the maximum amount of damage like the destruction of cells and chapped skin. Regular application of hazelnut Oil is able to reverse this process by eliminating the free radicals.
To retain your hair color for longer duration, apply hazelnut Oil to your hair before shampooing. This is also a good way to strengthen the hair as the Oil contains good amounts of vitamin E.
Most Carrier Oils are unscented or lightly scented and don't interfere with an essential oil's therapeutic properties. They may be used alone or with other oils to nourish your skin.
