5 Best Anti-Wrinkle Essential Oils

Essential oil is a highly concentrated plant extract and should not be used undiluted on the skin. Studies showed that some essential oils are potent anti-wrinkle substances due to their antioxidative, anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating properties. For your skin to benefit most from these precious substances, make sure that your skincare products contain one or few of these 5 best anti-wrinkle essential oils:

1. Rose (Rosa Damascena) essential oil

Rose essential oil (absolute - extract) contains more than 300 phytocompounds and some are powerful antioxidants which help prevent the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of skin ageing. Up to 3,000 kg of rose petals are needed to produce just 1 kg of extract. Certain places in Bulgaria are known to have the most ideal climate for rose plants, hence, Bulgarian rose extract is known to be the best in the world.

2. Coriander (Corriandrum Sativumessential oil

More and more studies showed the anti-ageing effects of coriander essential oil. The oil extracted from the seed of coriander protects the skin's collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid content from degradation. Coriander essential oil is particularly effective in preventing the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of ageing due to free radical damage and photoageing.

3. Blue Chamomile (Matricaria Recutitaessential oil

Blue chamomile essential oil is rich in anti-inflammatory substances including chamazulene, alpha bisabolol and bisabolol oxides. Bisabolol in blue chamomile is known for its soothing and anti-free radical effects to calm sensitive skin, help prevent irritation and protect the skin against signs of damage including wrinkles.

4. Frankincense (Boswellia Carteriessential oil

Frankincense essential oil contains alpha-pinene, a compound which studies have shown to be beneficial for the skin's health. Frankincense essential oil speeds up the skin's cellular renewal mechanism which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of skin ageing.

5. Lavender (Lavendula Angustifoliaessential oil

Studies showed that lavender essential oil has muscle relaxing, antifungal, antimicrobial and skin-soothing properties. Like rose essential oil, lavender essential oil contains linalool which helps prevent the formation of wrinkles and skin damage due to UV exposure.
