3 Best Benefits of Sunflower Oil for Skin
1. Anti-aging and Prevents Sun Damage
Sunflower oil contains anti-oxidants like Vitamin E that help fight free radicals caused by UV rays. Free radicals are the cause of premature wrinkles and fine lines and hence preventing sun damage to the skin. Sunflower oil helps you to maintain youthful looking skin! Being rich in vitamin E means your skin can regenerate from the damage from the sun, as well as from aging.
It also contains Vitamin C which plays a vital part for the production of collagen and giving you healthy, smooth and supple skin. Vitamin K found in sunflower oil also helps elastin in our skin from hardening and therefore an important component to prevent wrinkles.
It also means it will help reduce scarring and also heal wounds faster.
2. Great Moisturizing Agent and Treats Dry Skin
With all the essential vitamins and fatty acids, sunflower oil is a natural emollient and helps to moisturize dry and dehydrated skin.
3. Treats Common Skin Problems like Dermatitis, Eczema and Acne
Sunflower oil contains essential fatty acids like Omega 3, 6 and 9 which have anti-inflammatory properties commonly helping with skin infections and problems like eczema or dermatitis and even fungal infections and acne.
The fatty acids also help to improve skin barrier and protection against infections.
Being non-comedogenic (i.e. doesn’t clog pores) and non-irritant, it works well on acne skin and moisturises without suffocating your pores.
