Anti-Aging Skin Care Oils

I’ve just bought an anti-aging skin care oil to try out, always in the never-ending search of skin rejuvenation products that are antiaging and natural. It’s a natural essential oil from the Tamanu tree (Calophyllum tacamahaca) which grows on the island of Tahiti.

Among other things, this oil promises skin rejuvation – antiaging, scar removal, moisturizing and correct dry red scaly skin problems and has powerful antioxidant properties. Anti-oxidants in this oil help prevent oxidative skin damage, something we all want.

This 100% cold pressed Tamanu nut oil smells of a delightful, nutty fragrance which brings me to another point, you should not use this if you are allergic to nuts. However, if you are not allergic to nuts, you smooth on the oil all over your body after a bath or washing your face. It can be used directly on the skin. I bought and tested the Tamanu Nut Oil bottled by Hedd Wyn Essentials and it comes in a little bottle with a roll-on applicator – very good for target problem areas such as age spots and wrinkles under the delicate eye area. The shelf life of this essential oil is ten to 14 months, but shelf life will be reduced if it is store in a hot climate and not kept cool.

Tamanu Nut Oil is a natural antiaging oil, good for your skin and good for your body and helps prevent the signs of aging we don’t want. It especially works well on fine wrinkles and age spots and I’m applying it directly to those nasty brown age spots on my arms and hands a couple of times a day.
