Product spotlight: Sunflower Oil
Fun fact – sunflowers used to freak me out as a kid! Why do they grow to be the size of humans?? Lol who knew that they would help produce one of my favorite oils?!
Last year I was committed to using oils only and wanted to try something other than my go to grape seed or coconut oil. I sat on an aisle and Googled facts about a few oils and walked away with the sunflower. Why?
- It helps retain skin moisture. I first picked this up in the summertime and when I had skin showing, no matter how hot it was, I didn’t burn. I’m in Las Vegas and it gets HOT. Even though the oil penetrates into the skin, it doesn’t dry out. It’s also high in vitamin E which helps to protect from harmful UV rays.
- It’s rich in beta carotene, vitamins A C and D which work like antioxidants to regenerate new skin cells and help you to achieve healthy, supple looking skin.
