You will have learned all the wonderful health benefits of sesame seeds and how good sesame seed oil is to cook with, but have you considered how useful it is for your skincare?
Did you know that sesame seed oil is the main ingredient in many skincare products? Because sesame seed oil is rich in antioxidants, it pulls toxins from your skin. I hear that sesame seed oil can even clear the skin of pimples, and fade dark spots.
Time to Add Sesame Seed Oil to Your Beauty Routine
How do Sesame Seeds Create Beautiful Skin: They are full of zinc, which is an essential mineral to produce collagen. Zinc is great for healing damaged tissues anywhere in the body. Also, sesame oil is known to prevent skin-related disorders.
Cleans up the Skin:
Sesame seed oil contains antioxidants that help in detoxifying your skin. The oil attracts oil-soluble toxins when applied to the skin. A good mixture is to mix half a cup sesame seed oil with half a cup apple cider vinegar and a quarter cup water which can be washed away with hot water and soap. Apply every night after splashing your face with water.
For Glowing Skin:
Sesame seed oil helps to create glowing skin:
- Keeps skin flexibility by keeping it soft and supple.
- Heals mild cuts and scrapes.
- It helps tighten the facial skin.
- Pulls out toxins so that you get fewer pimples.
Try a facial for glowing skin. Apply sesame oil all over your face and massage it in thoroughly. Next, scrub your face with rice powder. Then wash it off with warm water. Afterward, rinse your face with cold water to close the pores.
Sesame seed oil has excellent healing properties because it is a natural anti-inflammatory agent with antibacterial properties. This helps to get rid of skin fungi such as athlete’s foot. To control vaginal yeast infections apply sesame seed oil mixed with warm water.
Helps you to Avoid and Heal Sunburns:
Apply sesame oil to your skin daily will help prevent the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun from damaging your skin. Also, helps prevent wrinkles and reduces the risk of skin cancer. After exposure to the sun, sesame seed oil can treat sunburns. It also is a natural barrier protecting your skin from smoke and pollutants in the air.
Good for Babies:
A sesame oil massage improves growth and improves sleep. Rashes on the baby’s skin especially where the diaper (from elimination toxins) can be protected with sesame seed oil by rubbing it in and it also decreases dryness of the skin. Apply it to the nose and ears for protection against common skin problems.
Treats Cracked Heels: Rub sesame seed oil into your heels every night before going to bed, then put on some cotton socks that you do not mind getting stained. Within a couple of days of doing this, you should notice softer feet.
Note: Only buy organic cold-pressed sesame seed oil.
